Tell Your Friends:

Mocha Body Butter

I’m crazy about Etsy for too many reasons to count, but the excellent customer service that tends to accompany a small business is probably the greatest selling point for me. When I contacted Rebecca from Wash The Day Away to request a product to review, I was delighted by her quick and friendly response, as well as her willingness to also do a giveaway on Turby and John. Check back next week and see how you can win your own jar of the lovely body butter I’m about to review. Trust me, you’ll love it!

Ingredients (provided on the product page)- “Coffee Butter, Organic Cocoa Butter, Rice Bran Oil, Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Emulsifying Wax, Optiphen, Cocoa Absolute.”

The preliminary report that I created in the Cosmetics Database gives this product a hazard score of 2. The only ingredient I couldn’t locate in the Cosmetics Database was coffee butter.

Some great things about this product:

1.It’s free of parabens and fragrance.

2. It contains organic ingredients.

Product Description(provided on the product page)- “Mocha Body Butter is a great skin conditioner. Treat your skin to a dose of anti-oxidants, Vitamin E & D, Fatty Acids and Proteins. Mocha Body Butter will nourish and keep your skin touchably soft all day long with the help of nature’s richest and most moisturizing ingredients.

The scent of Mocha Body Butter is just like a mug of hot Mocha Cafe Latte. Coffee, Intoxicating Dark Chocolate. Yum! A wonderful way to start each morning!”

Price-$12.00 for a 4 oz. jar.

Performance- The light, whipped consistency of this body butter left me with unbelievably silky skin. After allowing the product to dry for around 5 minutes, my skin didn’t feel the least bit greasy. It did, however, feel thoroughly moisturized all day long. Now that’s impressive!

Scent- This product has a lovely, deep, rich scent; it’s reminiscent of coffee and dark chocolate. However, it isn’t so overpowering or lingering that it’s a problem.

Rating- 9/10. I subtracted 1 point for the less than perfect hazard score, but this product is otherwise pretty remarkable.

Would I purchase this item again? I certainly would.

    I just don’t like one of the ingredients: optiphen, that is a blend of Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol and Sorbic Acid. I’m avoiding products with phenoxyethanol, as it is the replacement of parabens….

    Thanks so much Dawn! So glad you liked my Mocha Body Butter!

  • Risa

    Rebecca from WASH THE DAY AWAY is great, and i must add , & so are her products….

  • Dawn

    I’ve been reading up on that ingredient lately, actually, but I’ve read too many conflicting things to make a decision for myself. I certainly respect your decision, though. :)

  • Dawn

    I agree, Risa; she’s such a pleasure! Be sure and check back next Tuesday for the giveaway!

    Thank you, Rebecca!

    I’m always willing to leave it out if asked. It’s just a necessary evil if I’m not making everything fresh. I also only use about 1 Tbsp per 20 ounces of product. Some products I have are preserved with Rosemary Extract, Vitamin E and/or Grapefruit Seed Extract.

    That’s very good to know, Rebecca! I definitely understand the importance and occasional necessity of preservatives, but it’s also admirable that you make products to suit your customers specific requests. :)
