The Body Shop 'Chocomania' range review!

I was lucky enough to be sent a surprise package from The Body Shop containing several of their exciting new launches for February. If you are a chocolate lover (weirdly I am not!) you will love ‘Chocomania’, a chocolate inspired bath and body range. Made from 47% cocoa butter and offering 48 hours of skin moisturisation that is almost good enough to eat.

'Chocomania Body Butter (£12.50)

I tried the Body Butter which promises to give extra long-lasting hydration. It contains 13 Community Fair Trade ingredients – the most The Body Shop have ever put into one product. Ingredients include soya beans, Brazil nut, sugar cane, cocoa beans, coconut, olive, shea nuts! It leaves skin sweetly scented, and feeling softer and smoother. I can’t argue with the fact my skin was ultra soft and smooth – however I am not a fan of the smell which is quite sickly. It smells like chocolate ice cream, which I don’t like. I would imagine if you do like chocolate ice cream, then you will love it. The butter consistency is also much easier to rub in that other body butters I have tried, as I find sometimes they can be quick thick and difficult to rub in. This one is easily absorbed by your skin so a big thumbs up there.


The complete range consists of: Body Butter (£12.50), Body Scrub (£12.50), Body Lotion (£8), Lip Butter (£4), Shower Cream (£4) and soaps available in 100g for £2 or as a mini set for £3.50. For Valentine's Day, The Body Shop has also created a special Chocomania gift set which costs £28.

The whole 'Chocomania' range

Are you a chocolate lover, what do you think? Not for me as I am a berry fan but perfect for choc lovers and no calories!!

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation


Beautiful lid!

If you are a fan of pretty packaging (whose isn't?!) then you'll love this gorgeous Swarovski Crystal embellished lid on Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (£34). The downside is it's only available at Harrods and if you purchase 3 GA products but it's worth it to have such a beautiful foundation. The foundation itself is wonderful, providing sheer, luminous coverage and lasting all day. It also makes your skin look dewy and fresh, which is a must have for me when selecting foundation. Oil free it is also suitable for oily skin types and uses microfill technology to cover scars and blemishes.
