What I liked:

– isn’t greasy
– moisturizes skin leaving it feeling soft
What I didn’t like:
– scent can be too strong for some
I love chocolate, so when I saw this product I’d thought I’d give it a try. It is a white, thick, rich cream that absorbs quickly into the skin and isn’t greasy. It is very moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling soft.
I love how this cream smells. It has a very strong scent of chocolate with a hint of almond. However, because the fragrance is quite overpowering at first (it calms down after a while), some people may not like it at all. I do find it very pleasant though, and so must do my mother and my boyfriend because they both tried to bite me when they smelled the scent on me!!
Bottega Verde claims to be a nature-friendly brand and while it is true that every products contains natural ingredients, they also contain lots of chemicals and synthetic stuff. This cream contains helianthus annuus (sunflower oil), almond oil and theobroma cacao (cocoa butter), which are all natural moisturizers. However, it also contains silicones, such as dimethicone, which gives skin a soft and smooth appearance. While it isn’t bad for you, it certainly isn’t natural!
Bottega Verde Melt-On Chocolate and Almond Body Cream is rich, very moisturizing and isn’t greasy. It also has a strong smell of chocolate and almond, which I really like.
