Body Shop Cocoa Butter Shower Cream

body shop cocoa butter shower cream

I’ve had this product for absolutely ages on the bathroom shelf – I have to admit I bought it at the Body Shop some time back  in error. I was in a rush, saw the word ‘cocoa’, thought ‘chocolate’ in my head and bought it entirely on that basis. Deep sigh. I know. Of course, it’s nothing to do with chocolate because it’s cocoa butter. So, um, it smells strongly of butter that might have had a tough upbringing and every time I reached out to use it, I decided on something else as I just didn’t feel brave enough, LOL!

Anyway, now I’ve taken the plunge and even finished the pesky thing up, go me. The consistency is fine, it doesn’t irritate my skin (which I was worried it might do) and it lathers up well, but I won’t be buying it again due to the scent. I do like some Body Shop products very much indeed, but this isn’t one of them. Interestingly, I notice they no longer sell it in their shops so perhaps other customers thought the same as me.

If you do want to give it a go, you can buy it at Amazon for £7.99 for 250ml.

    Let’s be honest, pretty much everyone expects something chocolatey when they read cocoa. 🙂

    I’m not surprised you didn’t like it. I’ve never smelled this shower gel, but I think TBS’ cocoa butter body butter is one of their stinkiest.
