Hey beauties, I have openly declared my love for the The Body Shop products in lot many earlier posts too. I don’t mind going back to them whenever I feel to reclaim my skin. The products are natural, vegetarian and above all cruelty free. The product I am going to review today is a body butter from TBS Moringa range. I’ve already reviewed their hand cream from the same range earlier.
But before we dive into this review, lets find out some facts about Moringa. Moringa tree is a native to northern India. It is also called Miracle tree for its beauty and therapeutic uses. Moringa seed oil which was first used in Ayurvedic medicine some 4,000 years ago, has been a treasured product for ancient Roman, Greek and Egyptian civilizations. They used it to make perfumes and other skin smoothing products.
Now that we know what Moringa is, lets talk about the body butter which has the seed oil from hand-picked moringa. Also as I stated, it was used to make perfumes, so you can imagine how powerful and long-lasting its fragrance would be.

- The texture is richer than a usual cream but doesn’t feel heavy on skin and doesn’t leave residue if massaged nicely.
- It is very nourishing for dry skin especially in winters. It is thick for extra moisture but light enough to absorb in quickly.
- The moisture can be overwhelming to few who don’t have extra dry skin. It may be slightly more oily for normal or combination skin.
- As it is the case of every product from this range, the smell is super crisp and long-lasting. So choose your range and products wisely after trying the testers as this is going to stay with you all day long.
Yay or Nay
I am an absolute hoarder of body butters and would love to keep this in my kit for its moisture and long-lasting qualities but I am not a floral type person. And the smell is what is keeping it away from me. But whensoever I have used it, it has made my skin so moisturised that I can ignore the all day lasting smell.
So let me conclude this review here hoping you’ll like it.
Thanks a ton ❤️
