I actually have never owned anything from the Body Shop until last week when I purchased this. It is called the Chocomania body butter. I purchased it as part of a kit containing the Chocomania soap, body scrub, lip butter, body butter, and loofah. I only payed $25 for the whole kit which was a $32 dollar value! I love sweet scents and I am obsessed with chocolate scents so I knew I had to pick this up the second I saw it!
What the Body Shop says of this product:
This decadently chocolatey Body Butter gives extra long-lasting hydration. It contains 13 Community Fair Trade ingredients – the most we’ve ever put into one product. It leaves skin sweetly scented, and feeling softer and smoother.
-Provides 48-hour hydration
-Leaves skin feeling softer and smoother
-Indulgent chocolate scent
The packaging is absolutely adorable on this product. It only contains 1.69 ounces (It's a travel size), which isn't a whole lot, but I don't plan on using this product every day. Its not really a warm weather scent for me, I prefer coconut and citrusy smells during spring and summer. I think this will be perfect for night time though and once fall comes around I will be wearing this non stop!
The texture is gorgeous, it is so smooth and rich, the exact texture of butter. I applied this on my skin and it felt instantly hydrated, even the driest of skin will love this product. This also doesn't leave an oily or greasy residue like many body butters or rich moisturizers tend to do. It is instantly absorbed into your skin to leave it extremely soft and full of moisture.
When I first opened this body butter and smelled it, I got a strong whiff of plastic mixed with chocolate. It was very disappointing, but I decided to try it on my body as well to see if the scent changed. About 10 seconds after applying it, the scent was amazing. It smells like the most rich, luxurious dark chocolate. I honestly could eat this stuff! I think maybe the plastic container gave it that plastic-like smell that was very off putting. The scent will last an hour at the most which is a little bit disappointing considering these products are not exactly cheap, but I'm not sure I'd want to smell like chocolate all day anyways. It's just a super fun scent for when you apply it ;)
Overall I am very happy with my first purchase from the Body Shop. All of the products I purchased were of very high quality and did exactly as they promised to do. I will definitely be shopping there more in the future, so look foward to more reviews on this company and their products!
