Prize Draw: Luxurious Revive Body Butter (RRP £20) from Hotel Chocolat

I was delighted when the lovely folks at Hotel Chocolat sent me this luxurious Cocoa Juvenate Revive Body Butter to review.

You just know it is going to be good when even the packaging exudes elegance.

I had such a busy day running about with the boy yesterday, we even spent 40 minutes just going up and down the escalators/magic-stairs in House of Fraser while we waited for Daddy to finish work, and by the time we got in I was feeling pretty exhausted.

Once he was safely off to sleep I decide to have a bath and then give this product a whirl.


I had been looking forward to trying it all day and it really didn’t disappoint.

I have had mixed feelings about body butters in the past, often loving the fragrance, but hating the wet feeling and having to ‘air-dry’ for several minutes before getting dressed.  I have also found many to leave an unpleasant greasy residue which takes a long time to absorb.

This one however is truly the best I have EVER tried.  It not only smells delicious, it soaks in virtually straight away, it is COMPLETELY non-greasy yet it still left my skin feeling really smooth and soft.

Every so often throughout the evening I would catch a little whiff of fragrance from my skin and it really made me feel just that little bit special.

It would make the perfect Mothers Day Gift, will last a lot longer than chocolates or flowers, and you can even get Body Polish, Body Oil and Hand and Body Lotion in the same range.  It would make any Mum feel special and I can virtually guarantee HUGE brownie points!  If you order by 6pm you can even get next day delivery so don’t delay!

I am also giving away a pot of Revive Body Butter to one lucky reader to try for themselves.  To be in with a chance of winning simply enter via the Rafflecopter below.

Good luck!

Disclosure: No payment was received for this post however I was sent some Revive Body Butter free of charge to trial for the purpose of this review. All reviews are 100% honest.


This prize draw has been listed on Prizefinder UK and over at Di Coke’s Super Lucky blog.
