The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter – Dry Skin Hero

The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter

Don’t you hate it when your skin gets really dry in winter and you have to be extra cautious?  Taking long hot bath might be tempting when it is freezing outside, but are you sure your skin will be happy about it? Once you leave the hot bath, diving into body products would be the best option. If you’re one of these people who struggle with dry skin, then The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter might be the feast your skin is looking for!

This is Why Moringa Body Butter is My Dry Skin Hero

Even though I have oily skin, winter is an exception. My face gets dry, still oily but also dull looking and rest of my body gets really dry. I can’t even go a day without applying body lotion, otherwise my skin will get flaky. Do you have the same problem?  I’m a fan of The Body Shop body butters, but I haven’t used body butter for dry skin before. The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter was given as a gift, I didn’t know if it would be suitable for my skin, but since I have it I should as well give it a try, right?

I love the smell of most of The Body Shop products and this wasn’t an exception. Once I opened the lid, all I could smell was rich floral scent, it is not overwhelming , but subtle scent. This scent might not be for everyone, if you’re not really into floral scents then you will probably hate it. Also, bare in mind that, depending on how much body butter you apply, your perfume might fade away quickly. When I’m using Moringa Body Butter, I either go for floral perfumes or don’t use anything. This scent will linger for hours, even after a long day you can still smell this beautiful floral scent.

The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter has cocoa and shea butter (which are great for the skin), so these butters will help to keep your skin soft and give the moisturise your skin needs. This body butter is soft and creamy, all you need to do is massage it to your skin, your skin will absorb it quickly and you will be left with well moisturised, soft and silky skin.  Good thing is you won’t have that greasy feeling, which some body butters give.

If you have oily skin and it only gets dry after shower/bath, I would recommend you to apply it only after the shower and stay away from it rest of the time. This rich body butter will not be the best for you. Moringa body butter is perfect for dry/normal skin, your skin will get so soft and you don’t have to worry about getting dry patches.

I use it when my skin feels really dry and needs extra care. I know I can rely on The Body Shop –  Moringa Body Butter! I also use it as a hand cream too, my hands are well protected and feel really soft.

What’s your favourite body butter? What are your winter body care essentials? Have you used The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter before?

    • This is my winter saviour, it makes my skin baby soft!

  • Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on this body butter, Ela! I have oily skin, so now I know this wouldn’t be the best option for me. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead, beauty!



    • Thank you so much, lovely! Have an amazing weekend! xx

  • We probably have the same skin girlie! Mine is naturally quite oily but during the winter months it get dryer.
    I feel like I get something from the Body Shop Moringa line every year at Christmas. Somebody in my family must really like it 😀 At first I wasn’t too fond of the scent. But nowadays I actually like it very much! I don’t know if The Body Shop have gone and changed it at some point or if I’ve got more used to the scent. Either way, I love it!
    At the moment I have the Satsuma body butter and it’s so lovely and fresh <3
    Thanks for the great review. You always do such good ones <3 Hugs and kisses!

    • They last me quite a long time, I can hardly finish one 🙂

  • I love the body butters from TBS even though I am so lazy when it comes to moisturising, but they are great quality. Haven’t tried this particular scent but would be eager to give it a sniff in store x

    • I am also lazy too, but if I don’t use any in winter then my skin will be so dry. x

  • clara mcmillan

    Must try! I love body butter!

    God bless,

    XO, Claire

  • I keep hearing about The Body Shop’s body lotion and how great it is. I should really try it :3 I love their shower gels and face mask though.

    • TBS body butters are amazing, they make the skin so soft and also smell amazing!

  • Ashley Christabelle

    My sister loves their body lotion so much in Peach! Great review, Ela xx

  • Oh I have used this before and I love it! I also really like the smell and now I’m really considering stopping by Ulta to repurchase this 😀 -Maireem

    My Fair Autumn | Instagram

    • It really smells nice, even though I don’t like overwhelming scents, I love this one!

  • The Body Shop have the best body butters around. I haven’t tried this one just yet, but dry skin has been annoyingly plaguing me year round. I think it’s time to amp up the butter.


    • Winter ruins my skin and it gets really dry. Thanks to this body butter, my skin feels softer and well hydrated! x

  • I use that one in the spring sometimes, but the smell is too strong for me all over, so I just use it on selected parts, like my legs and elbows. Just like a perfume, I guess.

    Linda, Libra, Loca: Beauty, Baby and Backpacking

    • Smell is overwhelming and I don’t think I’d be able to use it in warmer months, I just don’t really like this kind of smells, but on the other hand this one is good at moisturising the skin.

  • I love The Body Shop body butters – I find them brilliant for winter or even in summer when I’ve been in the sun! I think I had a mini tub of this previously & enjoyed the scent! xx


    • Body butters are perfect for all around the year, I love how soft they make my skin xx

  • I do love the Body Shop butters, they are some of the best. I am using up ones that I have gotten for Christmas but I will be sure to get some more from the body shop soon 🙂

    Pams Stuff and Things

    • TBS body butters are fab, they don’t only smell good but also makes the skin so soft 🙂

  • I’m wondering what moringa is, perhaps a type of flower? I do like the Body Shop body butters, they’re so moisturizing

    • I don’t really know what it is, but I remember seeing the tree of it and these flowers smell really strong!

  • I have this body butter and lather it all over my body in the morning and I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of its scent ♥

  • It’s actually pretty hilarious that I’ve been trying a lot of The Body Shop’s facial products, but not their, well… body products. I really should give it a go, starting with this body butter, maybe. While I don’t have exceptionally dry skin, I am in need of a new lotion and this sounds wonderful!

    May | THE MAYDEN | bloglovin’

    • I haven’t tried many facial products but body products. Body butters are really good, they don’t only smell good but also really moisturising.

  • I am in love with the body shop butters! The coco/shea butter ones are my favourite! I’ve never tried this one in particular but it does sound lovely- and the package looks like a pop of colour that we need during this particularly cold season!
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Coco one smells yummy, it is one of my favourite too 🙂 It is the first time of me trying this one, I am not a fan of the scent but it makes my skin so soft and it is really moisturisng 🙂 x

  • Shwetali

    these body butters are best friend in winters. they works great 🙂 I have not tried this yet. thanks for sharing 🙂

  • I love this butter so much, it’s divine and makes my skin so soft xx

  • This sounds so amazing! I haven’t tried too many Body Shop body butters because my skin is quite sensitive.

    Connie | Sponsored by Coffee | Etsy

    • Oh no, it is hard to find a product for sensitive skin :/

  • I love floral scents! It sounds wonderful (:

  • Karina Guimarães Ribeiro

    This body butter have a great scent, i love it!


  • I’ve never tried any of The Body Shop’s body butters, but they definitely sound like something my winter skin would love, especially my legs. I probably wouldn’t go for the Moringa one though, as I don’t really like floral scents.

    • I am not a fan of the scent, but it really makes a big difference at least my skin feels softer and it is well moisturised.

  • Becky Hughff

    Body Shop body butters are so nourishing! I personally don’t like floral scents too much but there Strawberry one is amazing!

    • I love strawberry scented products, I can’t get enough of them!

  • I love Body Shop body butters but I find them quite expensive nonetheless and I don’t get them that much. However my skin is super dry in the winter, and it goes all flaky on my legs and I know that awful feeling 🙁 and this body butter seems to be amazing for that! Even better if the smell stays there for a while too. I’ll probably check it out once I’m done with my current body butter!

    • Body butters are amazing, I love how soft they make my skin.

  • I use coconut oil, my skin is so dry and it’s the only thing that really makes a difference on my skin. But you can’t beat the scent of the body butters!


    • Coconut oil is great for the skin, it improves the skin condition.

  • I always love a good body butter. It’s a great way to add another layer of moisture to your skin, and especially good in the winter like you said.

  • Diana Horsfall

    it sounds so good and must smell good too

  • I get dry flakey skill all year round and this product sounds incredible! I like body butters with a scent too, I find that it gives a fainter scent then perfume, but it’s still beautiful

    Rachel xx

    • I am sure you’d like it too, this one makes the skin so soft and the smell is so long lasting. x

  • I haven’t tried this one (I’m not a fan of floral scents) but I love the body shop body butters in winter, especially the fruity ones! 🙂

    Away From The Blue Blog

  • I love Moringa products (shout out to Emma Hardie’s cleanser). Considering my skin is quite dry at the moment, I will have to check this out. It sounds lovely and you can never go wrong with The Body Shop’s body butter. x

    Renata | Speaking Beauty UK

    • It is really hydrating and makes the skin baby soft, I would highly recommend it x

  • Sound like a lovely product! Bet it smells amazing

  • This smells amazing, I used to shop there all the time!!

    XO Chelsea

  • Omg, I used to use the Moringa Body Butter religiously – it smells so heavenly and really does a great job at moisturizing/hydrating the skin! (I get flaky too if I don’t slather myself in cream/body butter in the Winter). Satsuma is another scent that I absolutely love!! Great post, Xx

    Rosy Cheeks |

    • I love how soft it makes my skin and I am happy that my skin doesn’t get flaky thanks to this butter! x

  • This sounds so amazing! I am also up for trying a new body butter. Currently I have been in LOVE with the sweet almond and macadamia nut body butter from OZ naturals because it is so incredibly moisturizing without leaving you feeling greasy. I would love to give this body shop product a go though!

    • Oz products sound amazing, I hate greasy products! I love almond products, they are really moisturising.

  • I haven’t tried this exact scent, but it sounds gorgeous! I love the Body Shops’ body butters though, the coconut and wild argan oil scents are my absolute favourites. I’ve only just recently started moisturising my body regularly. Just because I never used to like the feeling of it lol. But in these Winter months I have to work hard to maintain soft skin.:) – Valentine’s Day Make-up Look

    • Coconut one smells amazing, I am a fan of coconut products 🙂 I wasn’t moisturising regularly but since winter is really harsh to my skin, so I had to do something. 🙂

  • Nadia

    Such a lovely review, sweetie! You described the product in the most amazing way. I love body butter, especially if it’s The Body Shop goodies 😉
    I’ve tried a good number of their collections & have already got a few big faves. Moringa one is sooo good: the smell & the hydration power is spot on <3
    Hope you are keeping great & having a great week!
    xox Nadia

    • Thank you so much, hun! Moringa one smells good too, I tested it in the store 🙂 Have an amazing weekend <3 xx

  • I own far too many TBD products and everytime I go into the store, they already know me because I spend my life there. I own my own little collection! Anyway, I love the way you reviewed this, and although this is probably the only out of three scents that I have yet to try, I have smelled it and it’s amazing so I know how good it is! The hydration in everything they do is what keeps me coming back for more. Personally, I love the mango and orange scents!

    Ella Pinto xx

    • TBS products are amazing, I love visiting the shop all the time. I prefer fruity smells, so this floral one was an exception, it makes my dehydrated skin so soft and hydrated. x

  • Kay (shoesandglitter)

    The Body Shop butters are my favourite. 🙂 They offer so many amazing scents, and they’re all very natural-smelling and very ‘true’ to what they’re supposed to be (not cheap and chemical-smelling like some scented products). I haven’t tried this particular one, but I looooovee TBS’ Raspberry and Vineyard Peach butters. You are right, they are incredibly hydrating and I just love how quickly they absorb into the skin. I’ll be sure to check out the Moringa range, thanks for the lovely review darling & I hope you’re well! Kisses.x x x
