I really love The Bodyshop’s Body Butters!♥ I was really addicted to the strawberry one in my teens. It smells so delicious. These two body butters are no exception. Both have an intense scent. The Moringa body butter smells really flowerly, like standing in a field of flowers which are in bloom. I would say this scent is not recommended to use before going outside in nature, otherwise bugs and bees will probably smell it and won’t leave you alone :D The scent really stays long! If you apply it in the evening the scent isn’t noticeable anymore, but the skin still feels smooth. Same for the Cocoa body butter. It smells divine, like chocolate, I really love this smell. And this one is really rich and recommended for dry skin (although I think body butters in general are always good for dry skin, because they are richer and have a thicker consistency). You have to wait a little for both butters to absorb into the skin, but afterwards your skin is smooth like silk *_*

They come in a jar and the full size one contains 200 ml and lasts a long time, since you don’t need much product (unless you get addicted and use it several times a day XD). these butters cost 16 € in Germany and 15 $ in US, sometimes there are specials, so you get them for less.

    I have not tried this products yet. It’s good that I came across to this site today. I guess I need to buy the cocoa body butter. I can just smell the cocoa scent and I do really really love it! Hope the scent is not too much too, since there are other cocoa products that has really a very striking scent. I’m so excited to get one of these kind!

      It’s not a striking or unpleasant scent, it’s just pretty jummy and makes you want to eat something with chocolate :D Thanks for your comment…unfortunately I discovered it just today, because blogger put it into the spam folder >_< sorry!
