I have become a fan of The Body Shop Butters. I have a very dry skin and I have to apply some moisturizer after taking bath. or else my skin gets itchy and flaky. I bought Moringa Body butter and Sweet Lemon Body Butter during the sale. Moringa Body Butter is for Normal Skin type.

My Experience with the Body Shop Moringa Body Butter:

  • For me, this is a summer body butter. My skin isn’t as dry during summers as it gets during winters. These days my skin starts getting dry after a  couple of hours applying it. It does keeps my skin moisturised and nourished for a few hours.
  • It doesn’t have a delicate flowery smell. it has a very strong *chameli* flowers kind of a smell. When I apply it all over the body, the smell doesn’t bother me too much but I hate the scent it leaves on my hands. Thankfully, the smell lingers only for a while.
  • The body butter spreads easily and it gets absorbed within a minute or so .
  • The quantity is pretty good. It has lasted me for about one and half month.
  • The body butter comes in a wider mouthed jar. I keep a small plastic spoon inside it so that i don’t have to dip my fingers to scoop out the product.

Here is how it the Moringa Body butter like. It’s a pretty creamy yellow coloured cream.

The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter is for you if :

  • You like strong floral scents.
  • If you have normal to combination skin.
  • If you don’t mind a body butter taking a while to get absorbed.

I would NEVER repurchase the Moringa Body Butter. I just hate the fragrance. It is too much for my sensitive nose.I just used it because I had to finish it up.

Rajeshwari November 29, 2010 at 4:35 pm

Hi Rati
Could you try adding a few drops of some essential oil you like to overpower that chameli smell, of course to a sample portion first…just a suggestion because these weird smells kind of mar the appeal of an otherwise good product…

Reply

Rati November 29, 2010 at 4:36 pm

Rajeshwari, it’s almost over now. But yeah I can try. Thank you for the suggestion. :))

i use the Moringa body milk..i have an oily skin body butter gets too heavy for me..i was actually looking for the sweet lemon body lotion..but would you believe??the MGF mall in Gurgaon had no stock of the sweet lemon line!!
so i got the Moringa body lotion..i agree about the smell but after some time the smell gets toned down and it lingers for around 7-8 hours!!
love the way my skin absorbs it…

Reply

Rati November 29, 2010 at 11:05 pm

Sree yeah something or the other from the sweet lemon range is always out of stock…I think that is a very popular fragrance ….

yeah sree, the sells tone sdown and that’s the reason i could use it. :)

I LOVE TBS body butters but even I found moringa quite strong when I sniffed it at the store. Thank god I din buy it :) The other ones are nice smelling though :)

Reply

Rati November 29, 2010 at 11:07 pm

It’s really strong Appu, atleast I would prefer something mild and soothing…:))

Reply

veena November 30, 2010 at 4:27 am

he he, my take from tbs are

shea butter, strawberry, sweet lemon, cherry blossom and olive oil :-)) :-))

i was so tempted to buy this, Rati thanks for saving moi :-* :-*

also strong florals like jasmine gives me headache (not rose or other flowers)

Reply

Rati November 30, 2010 at 10:07 am

actually this smelt fine at the store but when you actually pout it on your body the smell gets over powersing. :(( Mine is sweet lemon but i would soon be trying more. :)
