The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter


Dobro jutro, narode! Kako ovde kod mene lije kiša danima već, bez naznaka da će ikada sinuti sunce, odlučila sam se za post o preparativnoj stvarčici. Za dekorativu ipak treba svetlost! Ovo sumorno jutro sam započela tuširanjem i mazanjem novog omiljenog butera – The Body Shop Moringa!
Good morning to you, guys! Since it has been raining here for days, without any sign that sun could shine ever again, I’ve decided to make one post about preparative stuff. It does take sunlight for decorative, after all! I have started this gloomily morning by taking hot shower, and using my new favorite butter – The Body Shop Moringa!

Imala sam ga u malom pakovanju, po principu, hajde da probam, pa sam potom kupila veliko. Miris obožavam. Ne znam kako najbolje da vam dočaram miris!? Cvetni je i mene mnogo podseća na bagrem. Imali smo u dvorištu veliko drvo bagrema i svakog proleća sam mirisala cvetove, a sa listovima se igrala ”voli me, ne voli me”. Zato me sad ovaj miris vraća u detinjstvo. Moringa nije bagrem, mada po izgledu stabla, cvetova i listova, podseća. Nisu iz iste porodice, mada ja nisam neko ko se najbolje razume u botaniku. Moringa spada u izuzetno lekovite biljke i rasprostranjena je u tropskim krajevima. U svakom slučaju, miris je nežan, sladak, i opojan. Istovremeno i senzualan i nekako čist.

I had this butter in mini packaging, thinking, let’s try it, and later I bought full size. I love the scent! I don’t know how to describe the scent to you!? It is floral and reminds me of Acacia. We had once a big tree of Acacia in back yard, and every spring I smelled the flowers and played with the leaves “he loves me, loves me not”. That’s why this smell takes me back to my childhood. Moringa is not Acacia, although it looks alike by the shape of the tree, flowers and leaves. They are not from the same family, but I am not someone who knows much about botanic. Moringa is very well known for its healing properties, and it grows in tropical areas. Anyway, speaking of scent, it is gentle, sweet, and intoxicating. Sensual and somehow clean, at the same time.


Buter je nešto laganije konzistencije u odnosu na ostale TBS butere koje sam koristila, a tu računam šea, kakao, kokos, i brazilski orah. Namenjen je suvoj koži. Bogat je, hidrantan i pomaže kod suvih pečata. Kao i ostali TBS buteri, pomalo je lepljiv, ali je mekši, i bih rekla da se brže upija u kožu u poređenju sa ostalima, mada mu treba vremena da se osuši. Preporučila bih da se nanosi uveče, ili, ako su dani ovako ružni, može i ujutru kad vam ionako nije bitno hoće li se i odeća umazati. Miris se satima zadržava na koži, parfem nije neophodan uopšte. Ako se odlučite za parfem, onda neka I on bude nežan i cvetni. Čini mi se da je Moringa namenjena različitim generacijama, upravo zbog mirisa. Klasičniji je, ali ne na staromodni način. O ukusima se ne raspravlja, ali volela bih da mu pružite i vi šansu. Plus mu je što miris ostaje da treperi i kroz sobu.

List of ingredients

This butter has slightly lighter consistency compared to other TBS butters I have tried, and by them I mean Shea, Cocoa, Coconut, and Brazil Nut. It is meant for dry skin. It's a rich moisturizing cream and it really helps with dry patches. Like other TBS butters, it is greasy, but much softer, and I would say it sinks faster into skin, compared to others, although it certainly needs some time to get dry. I would recommend it to be applied in the evening, before sleeping, or, when days are this much ugly, you can put it on in the morning, when it doesn’t matter whether the clothes will get greasy too. The scent stays on skin for hours, perfume is not necessary at all. If you decide for perfume, choose then some gentle floral one. I believe that Moringa is suitable for different ages, just because of the smell. It is classic, but not in an old-fashioned way. De gustibus non est disputandum, but I would be happy if you give it a chance, too. Bonus is that scent keeps lingering through entire room.


Pakovanje je prepoznatljivo „bodi-šopovsko“, lepa plastična okrugla kutija od 200 g. Cena je 16 evra, mada je moguće uhvatiti sniženje. Da li mislim da su TBS buteri precenjeni? Da, mislim, bar što se cene tiče. Međutim, toliko su lepi mirisi i pakovanja, kao i sve u prodavnici, da svakako treba povremeno zažmuriti i priuštiti sebi bar jedan.
Packaging is well known The Body Shop one, nice 200 g round plastic jar. The price is 16 EUR, but it is possible to find some discount. Do I think TBS body butters are overestimated? Yes, I do, at least speaking of price. But, the scents and packaging are so nice, just as entire shop, so I believe it is ok to occasionally overlook, and to afford at least one, once per while.


Vraćam se sad svojim dnevnim obavezama. Uživajte do sledećeg posta.
I need to return myself now to my daily routine.  Have fun until the next post.
