The Body Shop Chocomania Body Lotion : Review

As soon as The Body Shop launched their Chocomania range last year I wanted to try at least one of the products from that range. I didn't want too much of chocolate fragrance and my mind said then it is better to try the body lotion [Don't ask me why] and not the body butter. So I just picked up the body lotion that came with a pump dispenser. I just wish it was available in small sizes too, just to try and test.


The pump dispenser packaging makes it not so travel-friendly nor would I want to carry a 250 ml bottle of moisturizer along with me. I do like pump dispensers and this comes with 'open-close' option too. The body lotion smells more like cocoa than chocolate and I felt that is how their Cocoa Butter range should smell ! I am glad that the fragrance is not too strong and it subsides soon after application. The lotion is light and I prefer using it for summers only. The effect does not last long and thus I reapply before going to bed.

  • The fragrance is not too strong.
  • Packed in a pump dispenser with lock.
  • Very light lotion.
  • Easily available.
  • Easy to slather and gets absorbed quickly.

  • Not travel friendly. It is huge !
  • I have to reapply even during summers. My dry skin needs a lot of this.
  • It might disappoint you if you expect pure chocolate fragrance.


The cost of The Body Shop Chocomania Body Lotion is Rs.595 for 250 ml.


A decent body lotion that best suits oily skin. My skin definitely needs those intense body butters. Since the fragrance is not like what I had in my mind - pure chocolaty I might not buy any other products from this range. However, this body lotion was neither a 'wow' nor an disappointment for me. Sniff it at the stores before you plan to buy this.
