I was feeling a little sad during my last Trader Joe’s shopping trip. They have so many delicious looking pumpkin treats this year! Alas, none of them are safe for my finicky stomach. I stumbled on a tub of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Body Butter, which is a limited edition item. You get an 8 oz tub for $4.99, which I think is an amazing deal for a vegan, high quality body butter!
I left the scent up to chance as the packaging was sealed with plastic. I was hoping that it wouldn’t have an overwhelming cinnamon scent, as so many pumpkin scents do. I love cinnamon, but in candles and body products it can mean an instant headache for me.
I’m happy to report the scent is a soft pumpkin/apple scent. If you are familiar with BPAL’s Pumpkin Patch scents from a few years ago, it reminds me of one that I used to have. I can’t remember which one it was, but I think it was from ’06 or ’07. The texture of the body butter is pretty amazing too! It’s more of a whipped souffle than a heavy body butter. Not that I mind a good, oily body butter, but this is different! I didn’t have to work at all to get the butter to disappear into my dry skin.
The scent doesn’t linger long, I’d say maybe an hour or so. One other thing I liked about this is the packaging. It has a flip top lid, rather than a screw on. It’s a just a little difference, but a great one! No fumbling with the cap when you have body butter on your hands!
