The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter Review

Hello guys. This is a guest post actually. I'm Fatima, Sadia's sister. I have been a not-so-regular visitor of sadia's blog mainly because of my hectic schedule, but whenever I do visit, im literally overwhelmed by the response she gets on her blabbering awesome reviews... :D  so I decided to do a guest post on her blog and when I discussed this idea with her...

this was the look that she gave me

"and what if it turns out to be a disaster?!"

after a lot of persuasions, she finally decided to give me a chance...

"well good luck then!"

Yes. We both share an obsession with The Devil Wears Prada. :D

So coming to TBS Moringa Body butter...

starting with its packaging, it comes in a big with secure locking cap, which assures no leakage even if the tub is placed tilted (although the texture of the butter is very thick but you know the summer months here...anything can melt! haha). I personally don't feel this huge tub to be very travel-friendly, in case if you dont want so much space to be consumed, but for that you can always get a mini version of this!

Now coming to the texture, it is thick in consistency, which sometimes cause a bit of a hassle to apply (you know those winter days when the butter gets more thick than its usual texture and you are too lazy to rub it onto the skin... :P ). But it absorbs real well into the skin and leaves no greasy feeling, rather a thoroughly moisturised skin. The "24-hour hydration" claim is TOTALLY TRUE during the spring/summer months, but for winter season, it hydrates my normal/dry skin for only 12 hours, after which I need re-application. Hence, for very dry skin, it wont be suitable to use during the dry winter days at all, imo! Also, The application of the butter does seem a little unhygienic, as you have to put your hands in the tub to scoop out the stuff...(which might also be a plus if you don't want to share it with anyone else :P )

quite an innovative way to list the ingredients!

The fragrance of this body butter is something that I really really like...very fresh and clean. something like the jasmine flower...and it lasts for a good 12 hours on me in summer and  in the winters I can feel it for the whole day!
I bought it last year during the TBS sale but its normally priced at PKR 1790. For 200ml, this is a huge tub which will last you ages. I have been using it on and off during the past few months and you could see that almost 60% of the product is still remaining. 

So all in all, its quite a decent product for its price, which my normal/dry skin loves during the summers, but for winters, I prefer something more moisturising/hydrating. Obviously its not directed to tame very dry skin. It is available at all The Body Shop Outlets. You can also buy it online on www.just4girls.pk and www.beautyarena.pk

So guys I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Now there is someone I need to attend to; who was very curious during the photography session of this post, and was waiting patiently that I would give her the food that I have in this yellow tub.

This naive young lady always thinks that whatever object I have in my hands, contains her food! haha

Dont forget to share your thoughts in the comments...Until next time, take care and God bless! :) xoxo
