Whenever you place an order on the Tarte website, you get the option to choose a product sample, and I chose the Tarte Sugar Rush Cake Butter Whipped Body Butter sample, without having any idea of what it smelt like, or its claims. Sugar Rush is the younger sister brand of Tarte Cosmetics, and I’ve never tried any of their products before, so I had no idea if it was going to be any good.
Tarte Sugar Rush Cake Butter Whipped Body Butter
“This luxurious & whipped body butter is your new nightstand necessity!“
The Tarte Sugar Rush Cake Butter Whipped Body Butter is £25 and contains 300g within a round, purple tub with a teal lid. I personally think £25 is expensive for body lotion as you can get some really lovely body lotions / body butters from the drugstore, especially brands like Soap & Glory.
However, when I tried the mini 7g tube of the Tarte Sugar Rush Cake Butter Whipped Body Butter sample within my Tarte order, I was so blown away by how amazing it smelt and felt on the skin, I just had to have the full size.
One of my favourite body lotions is the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream, and it’s crazy expensive full price. So I’ve only ever purchased it as part of gift sets or sales, as the price makes me want to weep, but the Tarte Sugar Rush Cake Butter Whipped Body Butter smells absolutely identical to the Bum Bum Cream.
The only difference between the two creams is the fine shimmer within the Bum Bum Cream, which I’m not fussed about to be honest. Whilst the Tarte Sugar Rush Cake Butter Whipped Body Butter isn’t cheap, it’s cheaper than the Bum Bum Cream and even more so when Tarte have one of their frequent 20% or 30% sales across the entire website.
It smells seriously good, and very sweet. If you like gourmand scents like the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream or the Laura Mercier Ambre Vanille Body Cream, you’ll love the Tarte Sugar Rush Cake Butter Whipped Body Butter.
Not only does it smell divine, it rubs into the skin with next to no effort, and leaves my skin scented for at least four hours which is rare for a body lotion. Plus, it’s nicely hydrating whilst being lightweight enough for the warmer months. I love it so much, and I’m so happy to have the full size in my life!
