The Body Shop is known for their Body Butters. So many times I've been tempted to try a mini tub while browsing at Ulta, but I could never commit to a scent. I recently stopped at The Body Shop in Parramatta and purchased a set that contained a mini Chocomania Body Butter and a full sized Born Lippy Balm in Strawberry for $17 AUD. The Body Shop describes their Chocomania Body Butter as a "decadently chocolately body butter" that "gives extra long lasting hydration. It contains 13 Community Fair Trade ingredients - the most we've ever put into one product! It leaves skin sweetly scented and feeling softer and smoother." The mini body butter contains 50ml (1.69 oz/48g) and sells for $9.95 AUD ($6USD). The full sized tub contains 200ml (6.7oz/199g) and sells for $27.95 ($20USD). The Body Shop does not test on animals, but the company is owned by L'Oreal, which is not cruelty free. This body butter was made in the UK. The Body Shop products can be bought through the brand's website, at The Body Shop stores, and in a limited selection at Ulta.

The Body Shop's Chocomania Body Butter comes in a recyclable, round brown tub with a twist off lid. A label featuring chunks of chocolate and The Body Shop's logo is affixed to the lid. The back of the tube has a peel up label affixed to it, offering a full ingredient list and miscellaneous company information.
