The Body Shop Chocomania Body Butter

I was so excited to hear that TBS were releasing a chocolate body butter! About two weeks ago in January they were selling the body butter for 48 hours for an introductory price of £9 and I promptly made my purchase. A couple of days ago they released their whole Chocomania collection, which you can see here.

What's in it and what does it do?
As well as being super chocolaty TBS claims to provide 48 hour hydration. I did find this body butter very moisturising, just like their other body butters recommended for dry/very dry skin. The body butter itself has a hard butter consistency but melts much quicker than the other body butters in their range, which I really liked!

How much and how long?
As I said before it's currently on an introductory offer for £9 but as I also used my loyalty card I bought mine for £8.10 for a 200ml tub. I can see this tub lasting for just over 2 months :)

How does it smell?
I was expecting something really powerful and chocolaty, like the Philosophy marshmallow cream but this is much more grown up. It smells sweet and perfumy but I wouldn't have said it was chocolate. However when I asked my Mother what she could smell, she said chocolate - So it may just be me! Also, I find the scent quite powerful and it does linger for a while.

Other comments:
Would I buy it again? Probably not as I find the scent just a little too strong for my liking.
Would I recommend it? Do try and get a sample and see if the scent bothers you or not - If you're not phased by scents then I would highly recommend this for its moisturising properties :)
