The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter Review

tbs_moring_body_butter

For today’s blog post, I thought I’d do a review of The Body Shop’s Moringa Body Butter.

My skin is always dry in the winter, so I like to apply a good body butter before I go to sleep.  A few months ago, I tried the moringa scented body butter and I really liked it!  I decided to get the jumbo size because it was on sale for $16.

When I first smelled this body butter in its container, I did not like the scent at all.  But when I applied it to my skin and rubbed it in, it left a nice scent.  This body butter is perfect if you like floral scents; however, it’s pretty scented, so it’s not good for everyone, especially if you tend to get headaches from certain scents.  This body butter is quite thick and creamy, like other body butters from The Body Shop*; however, it’s pretty greasy, so I find the best time to use it is before bed.  I will say that it does sink into skin relatively quickly, but I find it too thick to wear during the day.  This body butter feels really nice when applied to my skin and it leaves my skin really soft.  I really like it!

The Moringa Body Butter is available at The Body Shop in three different sizes.  The Body Shop offers it, as well as other scents, in mini, regular, and jumbo sizes.  The mini size is $6 CAD, the regular size is $21 CAD, and the jumbo size is $34 CAD.

Here are some pros and cons of the Moringa Body Butter:

Pros:
Cruelty-free (The Body Shop is cruelty-free; however, it is owned by L’Oreal, who does test on animals.)
Moisturizing
Thick and creamy
Sinks into skin quickly
Leaves skin soft

Cons:
Strong floral scent
Greasy
Pricey

I hope you guys enjoyed this review!  Let me know if you’ve tried this body butter or any other body butters from The Body Shop!

*Note: The Body Shop is cruelty-free; however, its parent company is not.
