review- the body shop coconut body butter!
I unfortunetly do not have a The Body Shop around me. Their is one in a mall about 45 minutes away, but that's just a little too far. I wish I lived near that mall though! It has a huge Sephora, a MAC counter, a Bare Minerals counter, The Body Shop, a Crabtree and Evelyn, and a Bath and Body Works all under one roof! I also do not have a large Sephora near me- I do have a small one inside my JC Penney. The Sephora's inside JC Penney do not carry all of the brands, and are much smaller. So, my Sephora does not carry the Body Shop products. I was extremely surprised to see this- for only $5! I grabbed it so fast:)
The scent is indenetical to a real coconut. It is not the fake coconuty smell of sun tan lotion or anything like that. It smells nice and fresh, and just like an authentic coconut. I actually really like the smell of suntan lotion- but only when I want to smell like suntan lotion. For an everyday, day-to-day scent I don't want to smell like suntan lotion- I want to smell like a real coconut.
The feel is nice an buttery smooth- it has an amazing texture! It is not too thick but not really thin either(like a regular run-of-the-mill body lotion). I would still definetly classify it as a body butter, even though it is not the thickest body butter that I've ever used. I think it is the perfect consistensy.
When you apply this body butter, it absorbs fast and does NOT leave a greasy, icky feel on your skin. After applying, my skin instantly felt softer and smoother. Plus, it did not leave any kind of greasy residue on my skin in the slightest.
The scent actually lasts pretty long and lingers on my skin for most of the day. If you are someon that does not like lingering scents- this is definetly not for you because the scent really leaves your skin smelling like coconut. When the scent starts to die down a bit and you think it is gone, just sniff your skin a little closer and the scent will still be there! The coconut fragrance does fade throughout the day- but at the end of the day it is still lightly there!
