Review: Trader Joe's Pumpkin Body Butter

Since I don't even know where to begin with this post, let's just say this: I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this product!! The Trader Joe's Pumpkin Body Butter has quickly become my absolute favorite beauty essential for Fall. If you love warm/pumpkin/spice/fall kinda scents then I'm pretty sure you will love this product.

As a body butter this product is a really thick lotion, but I find it rather moisturizing since it has coconut oil, shea butter & pumpkin seed oil in it! You have to really rub this in because it's so thick, but that's not that big of a deal to me! I normally would put a product like this on only at night, but I love the smell so much, as well as my arms/hands being moisturized, that I put this on multiple times a day. When I put it on, I generally wait a few minutes for it to dry before say leaning against the couch or something, and then you are good to go. I do put this on and hop right into bed at night though! I just don't like the nice furniture getting lotion on it.

I don't find this product greasy and I think it has a good creamy texture when you apply it. Additionally, the scent lasts throughout the day. You will notice yourself catching hints of its smell here and there! I think the smell is one of the reasons why I love the product so much.

As for price, unlike most body butters that range from $20 to $30, this one is around $5 making it super affordable, especially since the container holds 8 oz (227g). While that is a lot of product, at the rate I'm using mine so far, I purchased a second one just to stock up! Trader Joe's only sells this product during the fall pumpkin season!

I really like the packaging as well. The container has a twist on lid, but it also has a top that can open (seen in the picture below) making it easy to get product out of it! Also the sample on my finger below shows how the product is definitely a thicker consistency!

Here is a picture of the ingredients list from the back of the container! The front of the container also lists that the body butter is made with coconut oil, shea butter & pumpkin seed oil.

Overall, if you like fall scents and body butters in general, I think that for the price you should definitely at least give this product a try!

Happy Fall!!
