Suave Cocoa Butter with Shea Body Lotion Review

Hello gorgeous ladies,

I have been reviewing loads of shower gels recently and after using most of them, we need lotions! So, here is one amazing lotion from Suave. I haven’t been much into body products that smell like chocolate, but somehow I fell in love with this the moment I sniffed it. It was worth a shot hence I got it along. Let’s see why I liked it so much.

This unique formula is enriched with nature’s moisturisers, cocoa and shea butters, which are known to soften rough, dry skin and improve skin texture and tone. The result is that skin looks and feels unbelievable soft and smooth.

Directions for Use:
Smooth lotion on hands and body every day. Also try suave body wash, deodorant and hair products.

$5-$6 (I got it for Rs 200)

My Experience with Suave Cocoa Butter with Shea Body Lotion:

The products from Suave are pretty simple and decent and this is also one of the simplest products from the lot. The lotion comes in a white long bottle with a grey flip cap. It is a little heavy to carry, so if you have a luggage bag it will fit easily. The flip cap is nice to handle. The lotion is made up of cocoa butter and shea and both these ingredients are very hydrating for the skin. However, the issue is that it does not contain SPF hence I will have to limit the use for the night only. The lotion comes in a light brown colour which resembles cocoa.

The texture is perfect for massaging the skin; neither too runny nor too thick. The lotion gets spread easily on the skin and a minute’s massage would make it get completely absorbed into the skin. It does not leave behind a greasy film and I like that because my skin gets a little oily at times. Now coming to their USP, the fragrance! It is heavenly and something I immediately fell for. It smells of rich, creamy vanilla and chocolate blended together. It is one cocoa fragrance that will not give you a headache. In fact, it is not exactly like cocoa, it’s creamy chocolate.

I just couldn’t stop sniffing my skin. I smelled like a yummy chocolate mousse or a swiss chocolate cake. I have totally fallen for the smell and using it twice a day too. The smell in particular lingers around for 3 hours and the lotion also stays on the skin for that much time. It keeps my skin hydrated and soft for 3-4 hours and then reapplication is needed. It is a decent one and moisturised my skin, but there are better lotions out there. But if you see it as a package, I personally loved the way it worked. Although it failed to live upto its claim that it’s meant for dry skin because dry skin needs much more moisturisation than just this. I have normal skin and yet it vanished soon, so I don’ think it has the capability to treat dry skin.

  1. I like their body lotions for summer, but my dry skin always calls for more moiturisation than just this. I too would love to smell like a chocolate mousse though. 😛

    1. I know shikha… who wouldn’t love smelling like a mousse… if you can tolerate the chocolate smell.. you gotta try this 🙂 yes definitely not very great for winters

  2. A lotion I am going to have on my body for the whole day and ir might give me a headache! I would give this a skip.
