Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Tina and I'm a chocoholic. Just in the past 3 hours I've had a mini Snickers bar (don't ask how many I had today) and as I'm typing these lines, I'm sipping some hot cocoa.
So, it shouldn't really come as a surprise that I rushed to check out the new Chocomania range from The Body Shop soon after it was released. Naturally, I couldn't return empty-handed:
I indulged in the shower cream (one can't have enough bathing products) and the lip butter.
But, first things first: the scent.
Despite the heavy advertising, the scent of the Chocomania range is not particularly chocolate-y. If I had to describe it, I'd say it's a mix of shea butter (doesn't come as a surprise, since it's one of the main ingredients of the line), freshly baked cookies and a touch of...hazelnut flavoured coffee. The scent, although disctintly foody, is not overpowering or overly sweet (I should know, since Britney's Fantasy perfumes give me a headache) and I find myself wanting to smell it again after a while. Now, on to my picks:
The Chocomania Shower Cream has a bit more of an artificial scent to it if u smell it straight from the bottle, but thankfully, that goes away in the shower. It's quite a moisturising shower cream, but not one that lathers up a lot (then again, I find most TBS shower creams to be that way).
My other purchase, the Chocomania Lip Butter, marks my first ever lip-balm-in-a-jar buy, and despite being restricted to use it only when in the house, I've already made a significant dent in it. The scent is delicious (I keep reapplying it for that alone) and the formula is nice and moisturising. It's not the best lip balm out there, but it definitely does a good job.
In fact, I'm already thinking of making a second trip to TBS, for a backup of the lip butter, as well as for the body lotion of the range (the body butter seemed waaay too thick), even though I have about a kilo of body moisturisers to go through. I'm also contemplating the body scrub, since compared to the rest of the Chocomania items, it had a stronger chocolate note to it.
So, have you checked out this line yet? Would you go for these types of scents?
What's the most chocolate-y scent you've come across in a body product?
