Review: Boots Extracts Mini Body Butter Collection

I've been trying to review as many gift ideas as possible for you guys and I was recently given the opportunity by Boots to review their cute Mini Body Butter Collection--perfect timing given how harsh the cold is right now up here! The set comes with 3 mini body butters in Cocoa Butter, Bergamot, and Almond.

Boots Extracts Mini Body Butter Collection - Cocoa Butter, Bergamot, Almond body butters

What's Inside
As you can see in the picture above, this Mini Body Butter Collection comes with 3 different body butters. My nose is a bit stuffed (still sick!), so it's a little hard for me to smell these body butters completely, but I'll try my best to represent their scent accurately ;)

Cocoa Butter
This smells like every other cocoa butter lotion/cream I've ever used (not quite the same as unprocessed cocoa butter, which smells exactly like chocolate) and has a fabulously thick consistency. 

This Body Butter has a sweet, floral smell that almost reminds me of Victoria's Secret Pink. This is also super thick and hydrating.

This smells like a sweet almond, not quite like marzipan, but you can definitely tell it's almond. This was very thick and hydrating as well.

Boots Extracts Mini Body Butter Collection is priced at $9.99 retail.

Where to Buy
This can be purchased directly from Boots HERE as well as at your local Target or Target online HERE.

Final Thoughts
 When Boots says "Butter" they mean butter! These were literally as thick as spreadable butter, it was amazing! Usually when I try body butters they're thicker than typical moisturizers, but not by much. These are ultra-thick and very hydrating. The ingredients, for the most part, are pretty good. A naturalist would probably opt for something more natural overall, but a typical beauty lover would likely appreciate these products as they are. I like that this set comes with 3 mini body butters as it gives you the option to gift the set or separate them out and gift them separately! From what I've seen, the set Target carries has the same body butters, but different packaging--mine came in a trapezoid box, while the one at Target appears to come in a rectangular box--both quadrilaterals, but one potentially a bit more wrapping and/or stocking-friendly ;) I know you guys love a sprinkling of geekiness in with your beauty reviews! Anyway, I like the set, I like the body butters, and the price is definitely budget-friendly.

Have you tried Boots Extracts Body Butters in the past? What do you think?
