My experience with the Body Shop Cocoa Butter Shower Cream
I have tried many shower gels but never a shower cream. Hence, I have to buy it to see the difference. I have to admit it was my purchase and since then no looking back. This shower cream started my unending love for the Body Shop stuffs.
The shower cream was packed in a round bottle with a flip cap. The bottle is transparent which is great. The shower cream is yellow colored and is thicker than the shower gels. The sad part was it doesn’t lather much as gels leading to more wastage of the product. This was the only thing that bothered me.
The shower creams undoubtedly are more moisturizing. It keeps my skin moisturized for 30 mins in this winter season. The fragrance is the best part. It has a mild soothing smell which stays even after the shower. I totally loved the concept of the cream based showe treatment.
Would I recommend the body shop cocoa butter shower cream?
Yes, must buy.
