To think that Waitrose bottom butter is little more than a posh pot of vaseline?

It feels exactly the same, and in fact I don't find it as nice as oridnary creams. It bit too shiny and greasy. I am sure its vaseline with a posh name.

Oh, it's Friday...... Bit early though. grin

wasshock that waitrose was selling such an item then blush that my mind was working that way before even had breakfast.

It is olive oil with a scent added. I do like it when any very dry skin appears, but (following recommendations from here on MN) I now prefer rosehip oil.

Oh sorry blush BABY BOTTOM BUTTER !!

It's olive oil in non-liquid form. Vaseline is petroleum jelly.

You could use it anywhere I suppose....

I hate the smell. I bought some after reading about it on here. However I am a grown woman and I don't want to smell like a milky bar.

Apparently it has become a huge hit as a face cream. For a while you couldn't get it in any of the shops and was selling a hugely inflated prices on ebay.

grin grin grin

I know what you mean, however. I heard about it while was using it for my baby's bottom and tried it out on my face. Thick, greasy and pointless. Smelled nice though.

It has that heavy vaseline feel to it. and then your hair sticks to your face!

BaronessBomburst Fri 27-Jul-12 10:50:54

Oh, baby bottom butter! I'm laughing so much now I nearly choked on my coffee. blush

TangoSierra Fri 27-Jul-12 10:52:47

hah! I suppose it could come in handy after a bit of bumsex on a fri, or even before.
If you are into that sort of thing of course!

theDudesmummy Fri 27-Jul-12 10:53:18

Quite nice as an occasional treat for a dry face while you lie in the bath (bit like a moisturising face pack) but too greasy for use in the day etc. You will shine and your hair will indeed all stick to your face. I do happen to like the smell! I have never used it on a baby (but I did have a friend who used to coat her newborn in extra-virgin olive oil).

theDudesmummy Fri 27-Jul-12 10:54:32

Rather use straight olive oil before the bumsex if you have to, I would say!?? the scent in the bottom butter could irritate!

I use it on my hands - just the back of the hands because I don't like hand cream on my palms! It works very well around the cuticles where the skin can tear easily.

"It works very well... where the skin can tear easily"

hence it's perfect for (non-baby) bottoms! this thread is hilarious. love it when the crucial word is forgotten like that.

dexter73 Fri 27-Jul-12 11:14:45

I put it on my heels once and it dissolved my flip flops!! I'm not sure it would be going anywhere near my bottom after that!

TangoSierra Fri 27-Jul-12 11:14:51

oh am imagining torn bottoms now grin grin
Wonder if the chief of waitrose is aware of what his products are really used for!

porcamiseria Fri 27-Jul-12 11:35:43

erm its £2.50

so why even care, if its £12.50 I would see your issues

TangoSierra Fri 27-Jul-12 11:40:45

Because of the hype Porca

porcamiseria Fri 27-Jul-12 11:41:50

I like it actually, have quite dry skin so every so often use it, even on face (mixed with fake tan)

so ner!

TangoSierra Fri 27-Jul-12 11:48:03

It was a 'miracle' cream and at one stage everyone wanted it, it flew off the shelves, cost up to a tenner a pot on ebay, and I was just saying it wasn't as marvellous as the hype surrounding it.
Agree it was cheap and not bothered about paying that price although I think it was more like 4 quid when I bought it last year.
