The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter Review

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter
Grade: A+
Purchase Price: $5.00 (for travel size)
Purchase Place: Sephora
Other Places to Purchase:, The Body Shop (in store and on the website)
Other information: Full size product is 10.1oz and is priced at $20.00

This is a product I saw on and wanted to purchase at some point in the future whenever I ordered online next, because I didn't think I could find it in store. I had never tried anything from the Body Shop so i was curious and it was Coconut scented which made me want to purchase it even more. When I went to Sephora the last time I was surprised to see they had it, so I immediately grabbed it and put it in my basket. Now the size I’m reviewing is not the full size product, I purchased the body butter to go which is 1.7oz. I wanted to buy the small one to see if I would like it before I spent $20.00 on the full size body butter. Now since I've tried this I really want to purchase the full size. I absolutely love this Coconut body butter, its wonderful! Most body butter that I have tried in the past has been exactly like butter and left a greasy feel on my skin and hands that never seemed to fully rub in all the way. I ended up only using those body butters in the middle of winter when my skin was at its driest. However this body butter is totally different than all the rest I have tried, the consistency of this is thick, yet smooth and creamy. When I touch the body butter it feels kind of like a firm gel but it's not gel...if that makes any sense. I absolutely love the feel of the body butter. When I apply the body butter it goes on well, and completely soaks into my skin, it don't leave any sort of greasy feeling behind and it leaves my skin feeling moisturized. I feel it's a body butter I can use year round not just in the middle of winter. The scent is amazing, if you love coconut scents I highly recommend this. This coconut scent isn't overpowering, it's a nice soft scent. It's a true coconut scent, smells only of coconut and nothing else. Most coconut scents I find seem to have some other scent mixed in with the coconut be it vanilla, floral, or some other scent....not this one this is straight up coconut. As I said it's a soft scent and once rubbed all the way into your skin it leaves an even softer coconut scent. Weather you love Coconut scents or not I do highly recommend this body butter, especially if you are like me and hate the greasy feeling most body butters leave behind. For those of you who are not fans of a Coconut scent the Body Shop also offers several other scents in their body butters such as Mango, Shea, Cocoa, and Satsuma among others.
