Chocolate Beauty Treats ~ The Body Shop Chocomania


Though I don't go bananas over chocolates,  The Body Shop Chocomania range had me at hel....press release. I couldn't wait to sniff them all! When I finally did, the smell was nothing like I expected. Nothing like Dairy Milk or Ferrero Rocher le sigh.

But I still got 2 products to try out-  Body Scrub & Lip Butter.


  • The Body Shop Chocomania Body Scrub, Rs.760.75 ~ This smells like brownies. It is a fine sugar scrub, and the exfoliating beads aren't big like the ones in TBS Cocoa Body Scrub, but they're still sufficient for a good exfoliating experience.  If you want to skip body lotion after a bath, this is perfect because the oils in it  (Brazil nut oil & Soya Oil) don't wash off completely & give the skin a nice glowy sheen. 
  • The Body Shop Chocomania Lip Butter, Rs.250.75 ~ What I'm about to say may be good news to some & bad bad news to some. It smells more like hazelnut than chocolate --- the one hazelnut in Ferrrero Rocher, which is good news me. It feels buttery smooth on my lips and prevents them from chapping. No, it does not taste sweet....yippee!

Prices: Got 12.50% off on both products.

Rating (both products): ♥♥♥♥4/5

  4. I was wondering what was in the background...for a moment I thought they could be nutties, you know how they go white when you keep them in the refrigerator for a long time:D

  5. I have the lip butter. Glad it doesn't taste chocolaty or it wouldn't even last a minute on my lips.

  14. I recently RAN to my local Body Shop to smell this collection, I thought it was too good to be true! And sadly, it was. I'm glad you like the Body Scrub and think it smells like brownies, but I just found it to smell like old cocoa butter! I guess I'm still waiting for someone to invent a chocolate frosting that doubles as a moisturizer ;) xox

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
