Body Shop Moringa Body Butter

Claims - An intensive and creamy all-over body moisturiser with a delicate floral fragrance! Absorbs into the skin easily to condition, soften and strengthen the skin's natural moisture barrier! Provides moisturisation that lasts up to 24 hours! Best for normal to dry skin!

Moringa Seed Oil moisturizes and protects the skin with high levels of oleic acid! Organic honey moisturizes and helps condition the skin! Cocoa butter is an excellent moisturizer that melts at body temperature, leaving the skin feeling soft and silky smooth! Sesame oil moisturizes and helps soften the skin! Shea butter is rich in vitamins A & E! It moisturizes and helps soften the skin! Grapeseed Oil is very rich in essential fatty acids that help to repair the skin's moisture barrier, thus helping to restore smoothness and suppleness! Brazil nut oil moisturizes and helps leave skin feeling soft!

If you want to maximize the benefits, try Moringa bath and body range in a layering regime! It helps the fragrance stay longer! You can choose from Moringa milk body lotion, shower gel, soap, body scrub and the new Wise Woman luxury cleanser!

First thoughts! Remember, just first impression! Might change in the future! What is Moringa Body Butter? Moringa is drumstick, technically Moringa Oleifera! I never knew people can make use of drumstick flowers in such a diplomatic way! Looks like nothing is undeserving for Body Shop Body Butter!

I grew up among drumstick trees, literally! India, drumstick is default veggie! Widely cultivated! Widely used in preparing dishes! I never dreamt that one day I have to struggle so hard just to describe the fragrance of drumstick flower! I dont remember that fragrance, to be honest!

Moringa body butter smells like Ittar/Attar! Lighter version of Ittar, of course! Ittar is the Arabic version of fragrance or perfume! Attar is the natural perfume extracted from herbs, barks, spices, flowers like jasmine, rose and sandal wood! Fragrances are personal, so you might sense something different!

Moringa body butter reminds me of jasmine scent! If you are into strong floral scents like Jasmine, you might like this! If you find Jasmine nauseating like myself, stay away! Still, I wanna buy Moringa Body Butter! At least, the small tub! Staying power is phenomenal! Stays 12 hours for sure! Very hydrating! Product is pale  yellow in color! Consistency is very thick! Not runny at all! No greasy residue on the skin! Retails for 12.50 pounds for the 200 ml tub! Smaller tub is available for 5 pounds, so try your luck!

Moringa is claimed as Body Shop's first floral Body Butter! What about Moroccan Rose and Japanese Cherry Blossom? Moringa was launched earlier to Moroccan Rose and Japanese Cherry Blossom body butters! Moringa Butter brims with skin-softening Community Trade ingredients! It contains the magical moisturizing benefits of pure moringa seed oil! It has high levels of oleic acid, a fatty acid that helps to restore skin's moisture levels and protect against dryness! To ensure the highest quality moringa seed oil, the seeds are harvested by hand and hand-prepared for cold pressing!

P.S - I am yet to buy this, but I have done a complete review! I know! Something should be done about my addiction! I wish Body Shop notices my zeal and sponsors one day! This review is purely my perspective! If you dont agree, please feel free to ignore! I believe I can talk miles about the Body Shop Body Butter by now, even asleep!
