Very good cocoa smell without being too chocolatey. Not one of my top 3 body butters from TBS, but still a nice indulgence. It leaves wonderfully soft skin and a nice subtle fragrance.
I'd buy it again, if it was on sale. It doesn't smell like cocoa, more like a baking product like brown sugar or something. It leaves me a little greasy, but I guess that would be great if I actually had terribly dry skin. I have normal skin, most of the time. I do use this in the winter though, you know-- when skin gets scaley. It makes a great in-sock foot treatment while you're sleeping. Don't use this right before bed! It will get your sheets greasey! The smell is really strong, so make sure you like it before you buy.
These smell great and feel smooth when applied to your skin. But they are filled with not so natural products, like silicons and parabens preservatives. I much rather use natural products than these. I also find they leave a oily feeling on your skin that lingers around for far too long.
I love this sumptious, rich cream with its delicious fragrance. This product is a must, especially in summer time. It is ideal to remove the "whiteness" that covers dry skin. I also use it at the beach like a "suntanning cream" and it stays on for hours even after swimming. (Possibly no sun protection though.) This is an excellent product. A++++
ok we all love the smell...and the moisture..its awesome..i love it..buuuttttt could the body shop try and make it in a tube...for hygiene purposes..i would love it even more then. (after a friend was getting ready at my house the other night, i found her she had scooped a massive chunk out of my tub..which is just rude (it was a new tub so i could tell) and also a bit germy!!)
I am totally addicted to the scent of Cocoa Butter! Just one whiff and I feel so calm and happy so you can't beat that. The body butters glide right on and are very moisturizing. I don't find this product greasy at all. I also have the Nut scent and Strawberry (available around valentines day) but like Cocoa Butter the best.
It is a little pricy for a tub but I think it's worth it.
*sigh* What a guilty pleasure. It's expensive! I always use this for all over my body so I go through the tub pretty quickly. Moisturizes well, make my skin feel pampered. No complain, except for the price and the fragrance might not be pleasing for everyone. It smells like ice cream, my boy and my brother hate it =p
Out of all the butters I have tried this is the best I've used. I'm on my 2nd tub in under 2 months! I can't stop using it and my skin has never been so happy and pampered. My skin literally *drinks* this body butter.
It comes in a generous sized tub with an easy to open lid, unless you have butter on your hands then it can be a little tricky :). It smells like yummy, yummy cocoa and the texture is very much like, you've guessed it... butter. It goes on almost sensuously and is quickly absorbed into the skin leaving it instantly soft, supple, sexy and moisturized.
I like to apply it just after a warm shower, taking my time to make sure that every inch of my skin gets to benefit. I find that the smell is really calming and makes me feel relaxed and happy. I think that this is a product that I never want to be without. Highly recommend for those with dry to very dry skin but people with normal skin can benefit as well as it is not too heavy.
I'm now on my second tub. They last a while, but my first did separate after a few months. I think this is the only one marked for *very* dry skin, and boy, do I need it. I've actually heard news reports telling us that indoor humidity is low here this winter, and my legs suffer. I slather this on after shaving, go through a full workout at the gym, shower, and can still feel it.
This is the absolute best product on earth. If you own lotions-throw them all away today (or swap them) and go buy The body shop's Body Butter, either cocoa butter or Shea butter. They are so wonderful that no other body butter will match up. Next time your at the mall, be sure to check it out.
