Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Body Butter - a sweet fall treat for skin!


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!

Have you tried Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter? Let me know what body products you are loving this season!

  1. How smart. A flip-top lid. :) There’s now hope for the messy negotiation that is after-shower moisturizing! Oh, YAYYAYAYAY, Trader Joes!

    But not so sure about walking around smelling like apples ‘n pumpkin, but that could just be my fruit-body neurosis talking. I’ve no trouble walking around smelling like vanilla or chocolate, so go figure.

    Amber, I’ve been crazy busy, so I haven’t commented much lately (in school, nights and weekends…will tell you more about this adventure soon), but wanted (albeit late) to say that the new theme is clean and sweet. It works well with your content.

    One more thing…

    If I was having another child, I’d name it after you. Even if it was a boy. But alas, I’m past that stage. So, my thanks will have to suffice….

    That Elovee creme is the best thing since sex. It’s a game changer: a product I now adore, that works all over, head to toe..

    Sorry for the novel. Thanks, and be well. <3

    • Lisa, I’m sorry things have been so nuts for you! I hope it’s a “Good Busy!” Isn’t the flip top lid brilliant?! Why didn’t someone think of that sooner! TJ’s has some winners in the personal care area. :)
      I am so happy you love the Ellovi butter as much as I do! Yay! Oh and I tried it in my hair and it worked great on my ends! :)
      Have a great week! xoxo A
