Cranberry Joy Body Butter
The smell changes! Yuck!
This can either smell fruity and lovely, or have a beer/yeasty smell. YUCK. I don't reccomend buying it. If you do, check each containor for a pungent stink. Yes stink. hopefully it does work for some!

I really wanted to love it but...
So, I have been wanting to buy the Body Shop's cranberry Christmas body butter ever since I smelled it for the first time about 15 years ago. I could never quite justify the expense though, and now that I make a bit more money I thought why not buy it? I was so disappointed though, I have a peach body butter that is extremely hydrating on my hands and body, but the cranberry seems to leave an oily residue, and when I wipe that off my hands are dry. Being that it's winter and that I work with paper this is a huge problem, as I start to get a rash if my skin is to dry.
I don't buy Bath and Body or Victoria's Secret because there products aren't hydrating and I was expecting better from the Body Shop, I feel extremely let down. The smell is ok, I don't smell beer like everyone else does, but it's not great. I cannot, however, complain about the price, as I got three for $5 each plus my love your body discount :) I'm going back to the Peach, and I might try Mango next. Please do better next year Body Shop!

I had not read the reviews before I purchased this product, and so when I looked at them after I had placed my online order, I panicked. All of the reviews citing that it smelled like beer made me freak out. I had gotten it on sale, but what on earth was I going to do with a beer scented lotion. When my package arrived, I opened in fearfully and sniffed the Cranberry Joy and... Well, I fell in love. It smells nothing like beer to me, it had the soft tart smell of cranberries, with just a touch of sweetness, and then a deliciously natural touch of plant. The scent actually reminded me a lot of my favorite body butter, The Blueberry!
The texture is perfect to me as well. I find some of the ones I have purchased to be too runny, and ones like Vanilla Bliss to be too thick for day use. I love this scent so much. I wish it wasn't seasonal!

First body butter....can't get over the scent
For some reason, I decided in the store that this smelled good enough (the $5 sale applied to this or the ginger one so I went with this one)...however, that night I kept smelling something I couldn't pinpoint. I put it on at night before bed as well and the texture is so dreamy that I wanted to love it. I kept smelling something that reminded me of cigarettes for some reason but reading everyone say it smells like beer made me realize YES that's the smell I keep thinking of. It smells like cranberry beer...which people might like as a beverage, but probably not as a body product.
