This is the first product review for the year 2018. And I hope you guys will like it. Today am introducing a new brand, Imiana House. Its a very newly launched brand in the market. Their products are 100% natural, vegan, free from SLS, parabens, pthalates, synthetic colorants and artificial fragrances. Also they are a cruelty-free brand and don’t test on animals. Apart from all this, all the ingredients used by Imiana House are organic and premium quality. The products are handmade with all botanical natural cold-pressed virgin oils and extremely moisturizing butters. The brand sent me three products for review – Choco Mint Body Butter, Pink Kaolin Clay Soap and Afro Cocoa Soap. In this post, I will review the Imiana House Choco Mint Whipped Body Butter and in the next post I will review the soaps.

Imiana House Choco Mint Whipped Body Butter comes in a simple plastic tub packaging. I wish they can improve the packaging to give a more luxurious feel to the product appropriate for premium, organic brands.
If you are following me on Instagram, I had posted a picture on this a while back, many of you would have seen the texture of this body butter. Imiana House Choco Mint Whipped Body Butter is chocolate brown in color and has a thick, whipped, buttery consistency. Looks like the choco in choco lava cake! 😍 The smell is just to die for. It smells exactly like pure, rich chocolate with just a hint of mint. If you have ever had choco-mint icecream, then that’s exactly how it smells and looks like 😛
Imiana House Choco Mint Whipped Body Butter has a thick, whipped cream consistency. But when it comes in contact with skin its melts easily like a butter. It feels like applying rich melted chocolate on skin but without the stickiness. It is a very nourishing and moisturizing body butter. The yummy chocolate scent lingers on your skin for sometime. I use it mainly on my feet and hands as they become very very dry during winters like Sahara desert. My foot was in a really bad condition when I started using this. It was very dry and itching. Within 3 days of using, I could see my feet was healthy and nourished with no itchiness. Using it as a hand cream, I could see visible difference in the condition of my hands too.
Imiana House Choco Mint Whipped Body Butter contains Kerala grown organic cocoa powder. Most of the chocolate body butters that I have used previously (The Body Shop, Juicy Chemistry, The Nature’s Co, Khadi, etc) contain only less quantity of cocoa powder. But I think that this one contains more quantity of cocoa powder from the rich choco smell as well as I can feel the cocoa powder even while applying it. If you have ever tried making choco body butter at home, you can understand it. How adding more cocoa powder can feel on your skin.
Coming to other claims of reducing stretch marks, I can’t comment on it as I don’t have any stretch marks. Also I don’t have wrinkles, so can’t comment on it as well. It does give a slight shimmer (shine) on application, due to the oils present in it. But it is very subtle and will fade away in a while.
If you love chocolates, I would highly recommend you to try the Imiana House Choco Mint Whipped Body Butter. Its one of the best chocolate body butters available in the market. I have used Juicy Chemistry Choco Mint Body Butter also. It is good too, but it has the peppermint scent more dominating than the choco one. And its not as emollient as this one. The Nature’s Co Choco Mint Body Butter too has a lesser scent of cocoa. Being a big chocolate lover (my favorites are Dairy Milk Silk and Temptations, what are yours? 😀), I really enjoyed using this one from Imiana House.
What I like most about Imiana House Choco Mint Whipped Body Butter is that it doesn’t contain beeswax which is a filler in many of the common body butters. All are natural ingredients – butters, oils and cocoa powder – all good for skin. Since it doesn’t contain water, there is no need for any preservatives.
Does it satisfy all its claims?
