Beauty Review: Trader Joe's Pumpkin Body Butter

The glorious return of Trader Joe's Pumpkin Body Butter!

Last year, Trader Joe's came out with decadent Pumpkin Body Butter, which sold out in like 2.5 seconds. I bought two tubs last year, and by some miracle I made them last until this September. Smelling like Halloween year-round was pretty fricking incredible, but I was in despair when I used up the last tub.

Luckily, Trader Joe's just stocked their shelves again with this magical Pumpkin Body Butter, so the day it came out (September 29th) I rushed to the store and literally made them go into the back and pull out the box of pumpkin body butters! I grabbed four tubs, because the employee who was nice enough to fetch them from the back said they only get one small box for the season, so when they sell out they don't get any more. When I got home I realized I should have just bought the whole box of 50 or so tubs and sold them on the black market to make a small fortune...oh well!

Here is the ingredient list, plus you can see it is marked cruelty-free, 
vegan, and paraben free!

As you can probably ascertain, I am pretty obsessed with this body butter, because it is clearly marked vegan, is cruelty-free and not tested on animals, is one of my favorite scents, and makes my skin luxuriously silky! The enchanting scent alone sells me - it smells like a mix of a pumpkin patch, fall leaves and apple cider. It is the absolute perfect mix of all those elements and it smells like the epitome of autumn and Halloween to me.

Besides making me smell good enough to eat, this body butter has some serious moisturizing power! I don't really have dry skin, but even I notice a difference when I slather this yummy body butter on. My skin feels and looks smoother, and of course I also smell amazing! I like that it absorbs quickly into my skin, and I love its rich, whipped consistency, which feels so decadent!

If you love autumn scents as much as I do, you will definitely want to try to get your hands on some of this Pumpkin Body Butter from Trader Joe's! An 8 ounce tub will run you about $4.99 (which I believe is about a dollar cheaper than last year, if I remember correctly), which is an exceptionally good price for such a high-quality product!

But hurry...this stuff is going to sell out super fast!


  1. I did the same thing last year. I bought 4 and have one tub left. Do you know when they will come out wit them again this year?

    1. Some TJ's stores already have it back in stock! I haven't seen it w/ my own eyes yet, though.

    2. Yes, I bought one yesterday! I love it! I'll have to go get some more before they run out!!

  2. I bought one jar in Atlanta this past weekend (10/10). Now that I have read all the reviews I am sad I didn't stock up!! Hope y'all find it soon.
