I am reviewing a body butter which I got from a recent TBS sale and let’s see how much I liked it.
Best if you want to: Envelop your body in the scent of tropical flowers as you soften your skin using a rich and creamy moisturizer that will leave skin feeling soft, pampered and beautifully scented with our traditional monoi fragrance. Best for all skin types.
Rs. 1195 got it on 50% discount.

My Experience with The Body Shop Spa Wisdom Polynesia Monoi Body Balm:
I am not too fond of the fragrance as it is very mild and hardly noticeable. I guess I am used to the solid and “knock my senses off” type of fragrances from TBS. I must say that it is a very thick body butter and takes a while to settle in the skin and keep it well moisturized throughout the day. Once I apply this product, I am done till the next bath. I love this also because I don’t need anything else after this as in no hand or foot cream is needed, this takes care of the feet and the hands too.
I found it too be more moisturizing than other TBS butters that I have tried and ideal for cold and chilly winters. For summers, I have to carefully use this, not that it tends to get sticky or something, but my body will not need so much moisture and will not be able to absorb it.
I am happy with my purchase but will keep it for next winters as I like to use light, scented lotions in summers.
Pros of The Body Shop Spa Wisdom Polynesia Monoi Body Balm:
- Very moisturizing.
- Very mild soothing fragrance.
Cons of The Body Shop Spa Wisdom Polynesia Monoi Body Balm:
- Fragrance should have been strong.
- Heavy for summers.
Will I Repurchase The Body Shop Spa Wisdom Polynesia Monoi Body Balm?
I guess, I will skip this one and will try some “knock my senses off” kind of fragrance from TBS.
