The Posh Chocolate Body Wash was first released a few months ago, at the time of writing this review it is currently an all-year-round product that is available online and in all stores in the UK. *For everyone outside of the UK, have a look on your home countries websites to check for availability.*
Posh Chocolate contains hazelnut milk, fair trade organic aloe vera gel, cocoa powder, Australian sandalwood oil and vanilla absolute.
Fresh from the pot the Posh Chocolate body wash smells just like a tub of cocoa powder.
It’s scent however changes ever so slightly when you use it. The heat of the water and steam from the shower really brings out the vanilla and hazelnut in it.
I personally think it smells just like a pot of chocolate mousse.
Its consistency is also very similar to chocolate mousse, although – slightly thicker as it’s not as light. It’s almost like the butter icing you get on the last slice of a big cake, almost solid on the outside but fluffy and creamy underneath that very thin dry outer-layer.
At first, I was wary of how much to use as I had visions of huge brown smears all over my body – which I am sure we can all agree, is not something you want to have all over you, fresh out of the shower…
There was however no need to be afraid of it easily lathers up and just melts into the skin like butter on hot toast. No brown smears in sight!
A little amount of the Posh Chocolate body wash goes a very long way making it is excellent value for money. I of course always overindulge, using much more than is needed but my skin just can’t get enough of its soft and creamy formula.
I don’t think I have ever come across a body wash this nourishing before. It’s a game changer!
Its scent stays on your skin for a good few hours after you have used it and your skin stays hydrated and smooth right up until your next shower, there is no need to moisturise in between.
Overall, I am super impressed with the Posh Chocolate body wash, I can see it being a staple product in my collection for a very long time. I also feel as if it would work for me no matter the season. I am looking forward to using it next Summer as well as for the rest of the Winter we’re currently in too.
