The Body Shop is known for its versatile organic scents. If you are a chocoholic then The Body Shop Chocomania Body Butter is your heaven but in case you’re not, the scent is strong enough to make you gag. I personally like the sweet cocoa scent of this body butter and enjoy slathering it on everyday after a hot shower. The tub that I have claims that it keeps skin hydrated for up to 48 hours, but I’ll be honest with you, I’ve never had it on for that long as I shower everyday, however, I’ve had it on for more than 24 hours for sure and even though my skin never felt dry or stretchy after that duration, still on taking a closer notice, I felt I could surely go over with more moisturiser so I don’t think it’ll stay put for that long, though it may vary for different skin types because I do have dryness prone skin which drinks up just about everything, and I’m always big on moisturising. Nonetheless, it’s good enough for a day. You just have to moisturise once a day on average which I think is great in this weather when, I don’t know about you, but I feel cold-blooded and way too lazy to even move. 😛
The formula is very rich, and the texture is silky smooth on the skin. The body butter sinks into the skin quickly, and I have never experienced any sort of stickiness with it as I use a very controlled amount as per personal requirement. If you take me a few months back, only a minimal amount would get the job done. Obviously, now that the weather has changed, a more generous amount is required.
The chocolate brown tub with a heart-shaped nut dripping with chocolate looks classic. Its lid twists on securely, and the packaging is very sturdy.
Talking about chocolate, now I know this by no means is edible but I did accidentally taste it! No, no, I was not curious, I just had it on my palms and I was eating a piece of cucumber when the unpleasant bitterness hit my tongue and oh boy! I had to wash my hands. This is the only bummer for me as this body butter, and I think this particular flavour, does not double up as a hand cream.
My mom and I are obsessed with this! Thanks a ton to my best friend for gifting this to me on my birthday! 🙂
Price: 1790 PKR
I know TBS is expensive, but their body butters are actually fine for the price as you get 200 ml and the tub would actually last you a good few months, possibly even half a year.
Availability: Easily available at TBS shops in malls, on online order or check out the TBS store locator on the website.
