The smell, oh my gosh the smell. It is divine! Being a body butter the consistency is way more thicker than a regular lotion. Therefore I prefer applying this product at night or on weekends when I won't be leaving the house (and thus it won't matter if the body butter gets into my clothes). It's a rich cream and it really helps with dry patches. I won't be repurchasing it though because it has already lasted me such a long time and after this I want to try out something new :)

I love Body Shop's strawberry series. After finishing two strawberry body butters, I decided to try Moringa since so many people made a lot of positive comments about the scent. Yet... Having a very sensitive nose, I really disliked the smell so much. >< It's just too heavy for me to handle. I admit the Moringa body butter had a nicer texture than Strawberry. It is more creamy and nicer. But the scent... Gah! I can't tolerate it. D:

I don't really get why people love The Body Shop's Body Butters so much. I decided to buy this after a friend recommended it and because it smelled really nice, but I only used about half of it, and now it just stands collecting dust. It did moisturize my dry legs, but it never fully absorbed into my skin, it just stayed as a second layer, even on very dry patches, resulting in waiting forever to put on clothes, and even then feeling uncomfortable because it didn't feel dry enough. Also, I am not a big fan of the jar, which I find a little unhygienic. I would not buy this product again, there are so many other lotions that smell much better and actually do what they are supposed to.

A rich tropical scent fair leaps out of the jar as you open it. It is certainly strong at first. While some people say they can smell it for hours, I find it settles quickly and fades after about 30 minutes at most. If you are planning to wear perfume though, it might be best either to wait, or use a tropical or white floral, something that would layer well with the moringa. A lingering scent is left in the bathroom, which I enjoy. Texture is thick and a little waxy but I find it has no trouble absorbing into the skin. I love to soften it a bit by rubbing some between my palms for a few seconds. Just lovely!

This smell is something what you can love or hate. I first I hated it when I recieved the sample as a gift. But after some time I was not able to stop smelling it every few hours. I have got the full size and I love it more and more. Love the combination of this body butter with Gucci Flora Georgeos Magnolia fragrance. The magnolia is really light and you can feel it really long time on your body.

I got a small sample of this and when used I bought the full size since I really liked the product.
Love the scent!
I think it takes a long time to dry though, so I would feel quite sticky when I put clothes on when I was in a rush in the mornings.
The price is fair, but the product is used up pretty quickly.
I def don't like the packaging, I would prefer a pump as it seems more hygenic. And I think this packaging is unpractical aswell.
It is a nice creme for those days when you want to treat yourself and have a lot of time.

I really like this one! It has such a wonderful smell and it moisturizes very well. It's thick enough and the smell stays on for a pretty long time. The only reason I wouldn't buy it again is that I prefer fruit scents over flower scents.

I have re-purchased this about 4 times... I absolutely LOVE it! I have tried other lotions/body butters. But this is by FAR my favorite. Smells amazing! I got people asking me what perfume I'm wearing, I wasn't. This product has a really really nice smell and really moisturizing too! I apply this after shower (usually on my legs, sometimes on the whole body as well)

I love the scent, but this doesn't absorb as easily as others. I wouldn't repurchase. It's also really hard to rub into the skin, and a lot goes a little way :( I like the brazilian nut body butter's consistency better.
**Edit! umm so an hour after putting this on, my skin was LITERALLY flaking off so dry! what's the point of 20$ for a tiny amount of lotion, that doesn't even work??

This is the first time I am writing a review for any product so you can imagine how good this product is ..... I love the scent and how it moisturisers the skin and when used with the shower gel and exfoliating cream it's absolutely lovely. A few months ago I decided to try lush products for a change found their products overly priced and the moisturiser did not do its job as it caused my skin to be very itchy... So I think bodyshop products are fantastically priced for the job they do.

I'm on my third LARGE tub of this! In the summer it's the PERFECT scent. I apply it at night time after a shower, put on a sweat shirt and sweat pants, and the next morning my legs and arms and chest are soft, smooth , and smell AMAZING. It's a light floral scent, It's not too over powering, it's just right. I highly recomend it! But I would give it a sniff at the store first see if the smell's for you!

The moringa scent is one I really adore- it's a sweet floral that reminds me of lilac when I first apply the buttter. The consistency of this is very smooth and rich, and moisturizes my skin well. On me, the scent fades to a subtle floral scent that blends nicely with my jasmine perfume (and would go well with most floral perfumes). My boyfriend dips into this at times and I love smelling it on him as well!

I love this scent so much! I have gone through numerous mini body butters (cause they fit better in my purse) and have been greatly satisfied with moringa. However, whenever I put it on at work or at school a few people walked passed me and said they smelt beer. I can assume they are referring to my scent, I honestly don't smell beer at all, rather a pleasant flowery scent. I have no clue what they are talking about, guess they haven't heard of moringa bb!

- Gardenia type fragrance (white flowers)
- provides average moisturisation
- consistency is hard to work into skin
Overall the Moringa line was quite nice as I recieived it as a gift, the only reason I would repurchase this product is for the fragrance, however I don't think this body butter does its job for moisturizing as expected. I prefer the shower gel and soap from the Moringa line.

Got a mini-pot as part of a set with other moringa products. I love the scent in the shower gel but I find this cloying and overpowering.
When I use this I can smell it all day, even ten hours later and I'm sure people ten feet from me on the bus probably can too.
Scent aside, the butter is very rich and moisturising but it is expensive and takes ages to absorb as well as leaving a greasy residue.
I'm pretty unimpressed with this product and I wouldn't buy a full sized one.

I've used this for years, it's good value. Moringa is a sweet lingering tropical smell (drives my boyfriend crazy). Because it's butter, it does leave an oily/greasy film. Am only stopping buying this because I'm switching to "purer" even more organic products (which are double the price...)

Best body butter from The Body Shop. It smells great, not strong, but not too invisible. If you're into floral scents, I recommend this one. I also like how it doesn't get all over the place, it's not runny at all, it stays in place, but it's not too hard either. It also moisturizes my skin all day. I'd always get compliments wherever I go about the scent. It would be great if they made a perfume with this scent.

Great scent, texture and mouisture - my first body butter from The Body Shop and I am already planning a trip back there

I love Body Shop butters and this is one of my favourites, I like the floral light scent which is not too heavy, I also like the fact this butter is not too thick but then not runny either, the packaging is also very pretty, I have several butters to use up at the moment, but when they are used I will repurchase this one.

Great smell if you like florals like gardenia or tiare. I love THE way this butter smells as it matches my gardenia perfumes from Isabey. Price is ok for such à large box and it is not too thick. Love it !
