Review: The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Scrub

Cocoa or chocolate is often misunderstood as a fat enhancing agent in the body, but very few of us know that cocoa is locked with active agents that can really protect and nourish your skin. Cocoa is rich in anti-oxidants, and its richness is more than that of wines and green tea. A research has shown that women who drink cocoa or consume it by any means, show less damage on their skins when exposed to harmful UV radiations.


When it comes to consuming cocoa products topically, The Body Shop is one of the few brands in the world, which serves the most authentic and the purest form of cocoa, unlike other over the counter products that are mixed with the artificial fragrances. Cocoa is very essential drink for your body, in winters, as cocoa is known to keep your body well moisturized. Keeping in mind the same, I have come with the review of The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Scrub. Scrubs are meant to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells from your body, making way for new soft, smooth and supple ones.

My Verdict on the Product


To begin with, I would like to discuss the texture of the scrub, as in every scrub, texture is the most important part. Talking about this one, its texture is creamy with coarse and medium sized scrubbing granules. To apply the product, you need to take a very little quantity in palms, apply it all over your body, massage for a minute or two, and finally rinse off. The texture is so smooth that it gets applied on your skin quite easily, and easily gets washed away too. The granules are little gritty, which is good for exfoliation. It exfoliates dead cells from your body easily, leaving a smooth and supple skin behind. It does not dry up your body like most scrubs do.

Trust me, after using this body scrub, you need not to apply any moisturizer or body butter as it moisturizes your skin adequately. In the end you are left with nothing but a glowing, soft and supple skin. It can be used once or twice in a week, depending upon your need and mood.


  • Leaves your skin feeling very smooth and soft.
  • Exfoliates gently without causing rashes.
  • Leaves up to its claim of exfoliation.
  • Moisturizes really well. No need to use a moisturizer post application.
  • Perfect drink for winters.
  • Cost effective as it is used only once or twice a week.


  • Since the product stands up to all its expectations and claims, I cannot look for any flaw in the product.
