Oh the long ways, aisles and website carts I have scouted for the elusive chocolate body cream/lotion. Not a single piece, even a single product till date has been even close to being good enough to be even remotely being called a good chocolate fragranced one.
Well my quest is still on…and I actually am planning to give up on it. If I really need a chocolate fix, I will probably go and sniff the coco powder box. Lame…but it works for me…so whatever :p
I had been eyeing this Nature’s Co Chocolate Mint Body Butter for a long time now. I tried to find its detailed reviews at many places…finally one place , it was hailed as this wonderful chocolaty delight. I was full on tempted…let’s see, how my experience has been.
What is it and who is it for?
A nice and thick body butter for combination skin types.
Rs 1295 for 270 ml (earlier packaging 200 ml-same prices)
Sensitive Skin Alert?

My Experience with the Nature’s Co Chocolate Mint Body Butter
This body butter used to come in a really awesome classy looking jar. I have the old packaging. The new packaging has more products in it …but I prefer the looks of the older packaging. Naturally, both are quire bulky, so not travel friendly as such.
To be honest, I was expecting something on the lines of the body shop body butters texture wise. I think I had been spoilt by the vanilla and the Brazil nut body butters which had a super crumbly melt in your skin texture. This body butter has a more cream like texture. It spread easily and gets absorbed in a, minute or two.
While going through the ingredients list, I saw cream base as the ingredient. Now that made me a bit unhappy because…cream base is so generic…it can have truckloads of chemicals in it.
The scent…hmmm. Shall I say I have finally given up on choloate? I guess I should. The fragrance is nothing like chocolate mint. It is pleasant, but not chololatey.
As far as the Moisturization goes, this is a pretty good product. It keeps my skin hydrated for the entire day.
