Himalaya Rich Cocoa Butter Body Cream Review

Pricing: This one retails at INR 270 for a 200ml jar. But I purchased this during a sale for INR 216. I’d say the pricing is fair, irrespective of the discount.

Ingredients: The picture below has the entire list.

The Good:

  • The packaging quality is just too good. At this price range, the jar is extremely sturdy, a lot more than that of it’s competitors. The plastic is of a very good quality and I don’t think it will crack up easily if you …err….drop it down. I haven’t been clumsy yet….not yet.πŸ˜‰
  • Moisturizes very well.
  • It’s a luxurious cream with a rich texture that would work great for people with dry skin.
  • It’s a body cream that contains cocoa butter. It’s a cream, not a butter. But it has the feel and texture of a butter. So that’s great.
  • It’s manageable and spread somewhat easily…..like a butter (but not as thick as Nivea Creme).
  • It starts off a little greasy. But most of it gets absorbed into the skin pretty soon. It’s not an oily/greasy product. But, it’s not like a dry gel/yogurt either.
  • Ayurvedic composition.
  • The fragrance is sweet with a hint of cocoa butter. It has an undeniable ayurvedic-herbal scent though.
  • Made in India. Locally sourced ingredients.
  • Fair pricing.

The Bad:

  • I’ve been told I smell like Complan(children’s malt drink). It’s not stinky or unpleasant. In fact it’s nice and sweet. But it has a herbal, ayurvedic concoction smell that lingers for a while. It’s just a matter of preference. I prefer intensely sweeter and sugary cocoa butter notes.

Verdict: This is definitely a good product. But I have my favourites. I just like other creams a lot more. But this is a very very very good cream in a very good price range.
