Body Shop Chocomania Body Scrub 

Hi All,

‘Chocolate’ Just the mere mention of the word send a thrill through me and makes my mouth water. I’m a total chocolaholic and even as I write this, I have a bar of chocolate besides me  so that I can stave off the hunger pains which started bothering me the moment I started THINKING about writing this review today 😉

 

I picked this up from TBS a day before Valentine’s when I went hunting for a gift for my husband. Just between you and me, I had ‘my stuff’ in the basket long before I even started browsing for him 😉

  • Packaging – This comes in the TBS customary tub with a screw top lid.
  • Color & Texture – The scrub looks like a Choco Delight filling! Just looking at it makes me wana scoop it up and lick it all off 🙂 Being a sugar scrub, it has large sugar paricles which feel a bit rough to the touch. But when applied, this melts with the water and body heat and takes on a more watery and smooth texture.

  • Fragrance – I don’t want to give deep details about this because if I do I will hav to run out for another bar of chocolate 🙂 Yep, this smells that intensely of chocolate 🙂
  • Usage – I just scoop out the required amount and rub it over my skin and then rinse it off once it’s all melted.

My Verdict:The Body Shop Chocomania Body Scrub-

I fail to understand why TBS persists in using tubs for their products. And for scrubs that too! It’s so messy to open the tub in the bath and scoop out and then have to screw the lid back on..It’s damn unhygienic and so inconvenient. Plus, this being a sugar scrub melts super fast when exposed or when in wet/humid conditions. So I have to be extra careful to screw the lid immediately after usage to avoid melting.

But even though all this rankles me, I can’t help but love this product. Maybe it’s the chocolate fragrance or the way this works on my skin. Using this product makes my bath a therapeutic experience! It’s not just the relaxing fragrance though. It’s the way the sugar granules work on my skin. As I rub it into my skin, the scrub melts and becomes a bit watery. And once I rinse off, I’m left with soft and smoother skin. It’s not abrasive and thank god for that! I have very sensitive skin and have been left with scrapes more than one time!
