Personally I think this is okay and it is fair trade but there are far cheaper cocoa butters that are also not tested on animals and fair trade. I find this a bit thick too and prefer a thinner lotion that is absorbed more quickly. I ended up using this on my feet as it was not that exciting for my body.It smells nutty just like cocoa butter does and it is nice but there are cheaper ones that do the same job.

Summary
Would recommend this product to anyone, it's such a lovely subtle scent and you can wear perfume over the top of it without the fragrances mixing! Sinks in really well and leaves skin feeling so soft and moisturised. Although this may seem a little expensive, it really is worth it as a little goes a long way!

Strongest points
Lovely scent of vanilla and cocoa, not too strong and lingers for a long time, very rich and nourishing. Velvety texture when applying. Easy to apply. Skin feels soft and nourished and looks healthy. Skin looks more nourished the longer you use it. No need to use very much as it goes a long way so good value for money.
Weakest points
Takes a little while to sink in
Summary
A very nourishing and rich body cream. Has a lovely delicate scent which lasts for ages. Skin appears more nourished and healthy looking after prolonged use. Lasts a long time as you only need to use a little bit at a time, this makes it good value for money

Very rich, thick texture that is easily absorbed without greasiness or transference to clothing. Beautiful vanilla & cocoa scent that is not overpowering and lingers on the skin. Deep moisturisation that lasts throughout the day. Gorgeous natural looking pot packing. Concentrated product so a little goes a long way. Excellent value for money
