The Body Shop’s latest offering is Chocomania, a guilt-free, calorie-free chocolate flavoured inedible range of bath goodies. I personally love the range, I guess it must be the delicious smell of chocolate. It consists of a body scrub, shower cream, soap, body lotion, body butter and lip butter.
The body scrub ($18) is moisturizing and has very small granules to exfoliate.I suspect that it has some essential oils in it because it leaves your skin very moisturized. The only bummer is that it is somewhat hard to work with in the shower because of the small granules. If you have sensitive skin, however, you will like the small granules Overall rating: B+
The shower cream ($8) is a rather luxurious for just a shower gel, it smell divine, lathers to minimum. Overall rating: B+
Heart-shaped soap ($4) is my favorite. First of all, how cute is the shape? Love at first sight, no? The granules in it are somewhat harsh, but I do not mind, because I love coarser exfoliants. People with sensitive skin may not enjoy it though. I think it is one of the must haves from the collection. Overall rating: A-
The Body Lotion ($12) is highly moisturizing and not sticky at all. Like all other TBS lotions, it is fantastic and the chocolate fragrance is just nom. Overall rating: A-
The Body Butter ($18) is one of the best I have tried so far. The texture is thick, but it melts away in the skin perfectly. The combination of chocolate and body butter is just fantastic. If you love your body butters and chocolate, close your eyes and just get it. Overall rating: A
The Lip Butter ($6) is really moisturizing, tastes and smell like chocolate but unfortunately leaves a slight bitter taste to the lips in the end. Overall rating: B
