For years, I wanted to try a body butter. I searched for ages to find one that I would be able to use, but everything I found contained shea butter. As I’m allergic to nuts, shea is a no-go for me. I was close to giving up, when I found that Wilko had a range of body butters that didn’t contain shea! I was thrilled, especially as they were less than half the price of The Body Shop’s body butters. Alas, Wilko discontinued their range and the new options they brought in all contained shea butter. *sigh* I gave up the hunt. That was, until I received two scents from the Derma V10 Body Butter range at a blogger event (I think it was the West Midlands Blogger Meet).

I received the Derma V10 Body Butter in Cocoa* and Mango* and have been really impressed with both. My skin is dry, sensitive and eczema prone (as well as having lots of allergies), so finding a moisturiser that not only doesn’t cause a reaction but also actively hydrates my skin isn’t easy. To find something that smells amazing too is even harder. But, the Derma V10 Body Butter ticks all the boxes.
The Cocoa Derma V10 Body Butter smells almost identical to Palmer’s Cocoa Butter. It’s a scent that I’ve always enjoyed, but I’ve not found a Palmer’s container that doesn’t frustrate me. An added bonus is that the Derma V10 Body Butter is cheaper than Palmer’s products!
The Mango Derma V10 Body Butter is a beautiful scent for summer. I’m not very good at describing scents, so I’m not going to try. Instead, I’ll say that the Mango scent reminds me of Solero ice-creams and cocktails. It’s lovely!
The consistency of the Derma V10 Body Butter range is thick, which is ideal for dry skin. It sinks in to the skin well, without leaving a sticky feeling. They leave my skin feeling soft and smooth. I’ve also experienced fewer eczema break outs when I’ve been using the Derma V10 Body Butter range. I ran out of my usual aqueous cream, so tried using the Derma V10 Body Butter range on my eczema. I can’t say whether it’s helped because it was caused by stress. As a result, my eczema may have got a lot worse had I not used the Derma V10 Body Butter range on it. But what I can say is that it certainly didn’t make my eczema any worse.
I’ve been really pleased with the Derma V10 Body Butter range and would highly recommend checking them out. Particularly as prices start at just £1.32 for 200ml from Amazon. Check out the Derma V10 VANILLA Body Butter and Derma V10 Coconut Body Butter. There’s a wide range of scents, so you’re sure to find something that you love! You can also find the Derma V10 Body Butter range in B&M, BodyCare, Tesco, Home Bargains, Pound World I’ve got a feeling I’ve seen the Derma V10 Body Butter range at Pound Land too, but it may have just been a similarly packaged product.
