Beauty Review: The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter


The thirteen year old girl who had her first introduction into the magical world of make-up in store at The Body Shop would be squealing with excitement right now. Fifteen years on and I’m still pretty impressed The Body Shop asked me to review one of their products. I’ve always had a soft spot for The Body Shop, as a teenager I could browse and try out products undisturbed, without being hassled by assistants who clearly knew I couldn’t afford to buy half the stuff I was testing out. As an adult I’ve come to appreciate the moral price we pay by purchasing products manufactured unethically. Shopping at The Body Shop you can forget checking the labels for place of origin or animal testing, your conscious is clear and you’re free to enjoy messing around with make-up.

So I didn’t need to check the label when a pot of Moringa Body Butter arrived, I could focus on testing out the product. Anyone who has tried The Body Shop body butter before will know, thick creamy moisturiser containing Fair Trade shea butter is standard across the whole range and this product is no exception. I did notice how quickly the body butter absorbed into my skin and was pleasantly surprised that the fragrant scent remained long after the product had disappeared into my skin. To me Moringa smells like a heady mix of honeysuckle and jasmine after a summer storm, quite delicious. This one might not be a product I’d use everyday over my entire body, as I have oily skin but I will be smoothing this lush body butter into all/any dry patches of skin to ensure I’m bikini ready for the summer- thank you The Body Shop for this lovely gift.

    I absolutely love body shop, and I’ve tried some of the other body butters but this one looks so nice. Can’t wait to go shopping for some now. x
