It's been quite a while since I entered a Body Shop store (I dont't know why, LOL!) and the launch of the limited edition Chocomania collection was the call of the Siren, because it is a fact that I' m a sucker for everything related to chocolate, so I couldn't resist the temptation to smell like a chocolate from neck to toes!
So, I got the following:
Chocomania body butter €15
Chocomania Shower cream €7
Chocomania lip butter €6
With no further ado, the punch line: Does it actually smell like chocolate?
Well, no. To be more precise, it's somewhat like it, but not dead on the spot, there's something artificial, in a prominent way.
Does it smell good?
It smells good enough to eat, nevertheless. I will happily use it, it's just not as chocolatey as I would like.
The body butter is very dense and it will last forever because it takes a really small portion to cover the entire body. When I tried it in the store the smell took a few minutes to come through, at first it was too intense and bitter. When I used it at home, after shower, the bitterness evaporated instantly (it makes sense because after the shower the body is warm) and what it leaves behind is a kind of sweet, edible (LOL) and a bit chocolatey aura.
The shower cream is thick and luxurious and smells yummie as well.
As for the lip butter, although I rarely prefer them in a pot I made an exception for this one. The flavor here is more subtle and discreet.
Of course all the above products excell in moisturizing the skin, lips etc.
While I was there I purchased the Papaya shower gel as well because it is discontinued and it was on sale, only €1! It smells quite citrusy and refreshing, it will be perfect in the summer.
Last thing I got is a Vanilla body mist (€10 for 100ml) because I run out of it. It is something that I always have in a drawer and I use when I want to tone down a too edgy perfume. Just a bit of dear old vanilla makes everything more mellow.
While I was there I was also tempted to get a shimmery cubes set, there was a teal/green that was screaming my name, I swatched it (now I get why Evi aka Cbsg5861 is raving about them!) but I managed to resist it, (at least for now).
That's all about it, I hope you're all well and thriving!
