Reviews for Coconut Body Butter by The Body Shop

Average compared to other Body butters
I had high expectations for this coconut body butter but It didnt live up to my expectations.This smells great but did not hydrate as well as the mango and strawberry body butters.I also felt it did not sink into my skin properly- it sat over it.The best thing is the smell but I wouldn't repurchase this . It is also too pricey.

Great but not cheap
This is a great product. It is very multi purpose it is great for chaffing, chapped lips and dry skin. It has a very rich and nourishing texture and feels velvety on body. Like most body shop products it is not cheap, but I got mine free from a friend! It obviously smells like coconuts. This is a great product! Definetly recommend.

I'm a big fan of the body shop, so when my sister got it for me as a gift, I was over the moon. It does its job well, and leaves my skin feeling squeaky soft! I try and use it wisely, because I know that its pricey, but still I can't help but lather it all over my hands.

Moisturises well into skin. It absorbs well. I apply this pretty generously to my skin. It doesn't cause irritations.
It smells so yummy. However I find it can be a bit sticky especially during the hot summer weather.

Smells like summer
I love this stuff and have been using it in the summer for as long as I remember. A little goes a long way and the smell is phenomenal but not overpowering. Love it!

i love using this!
it's so light so it barley feels like you're wearing it but you are reminded by the amazing coconut scent which last all day
it leaves your skin feeling soft when you have rough/ dry skin
it is quite greasy though

I love this especially in summer - you appreciate the smell more then. It is creamy and not runny . Body shop is always good value for money as well

Not my favourite
I love body shop body butters but sadly this one didn't work out for me. This one wasn't as moisturising as i hoped it to be and wasn't a fan of the coconut smell. This took me a while to finish.

Yummy coconutty fragrance
I am a big fan of body butters and this is one of my favourites. It absorbs well into the skin and I love the tropical coconut fragrance. Very hydrating on the skin after bath.

This body butter is amazing. I love coconut smelling anything so of course I would love this.
The body butter is rich, thick and creamy best used at night, although doesn't make your skin sticky if you do use it on a hot summers day. It leaves your skin beautifully mosturised and smelling oh so sweet. You will feel like your in paradise after application.

This was my first Body Shop Body Butter!
Coconut was the first addition, i was so impressed i bought the strawberry which is equally exceptional.
It smells like fresh coconut, and you just wanna go to the beach!
I use these butters, as a nice scent to my skin, not really as a moisturiser.
I love the amount you get in the container and the price isn;t too bad.
Im not sure if The Body Shop sells this but correct me if im wrong, but a travel size would be idea or sample size, a smaller ml.
It would be very handy on the go, and a good investment as you can try a small size just in case you don't like the smell etc and you dont pay the price of 200ml, no commitment.
Overall all great product, would re-purchase, lovely scent, what else could you want? 4/5

YUM YUM YUM
Coconut is my favourite! I love it in every form. So when I first smelt this, I died and went to heaven. Every coconut lover's dream.
Smells like a summer holiday and feels like one on the skin too. I do think there are better moisturizers on the market that cost a whole deal less though so I find I only re-purchase this product when I want to smell awesome.
I also find that when I do buy this body butter, I'm hesitant to use it all over my body as it is really pricey for the amount you get.
The price is a massive downfall but I have tried many coconut body butters but the Body Shop one definitely smells the best so if you can get past having a little hole in your wallet, definitely one to try.

Smells like holidays
Something about this delicious smell always makes me feel like I'm relaxing on a tropical island. Gives me great moisture and makes my skin deliciously soft!

This stuff is amazing.
I use this on my legs because they often get dry and this really helps them become moisturised again. Along with that, IT SMELLS GREAT. I could smell this all day and be happy. It's also really good to wear when you have to perfume / body spray handy because the smell can come off quite strong (which I like).

Love it in summer
I love that coconut smell in summer, and I especially love massagng this on after a day at the beach. Takes care of all that salt/sun/sand roughness.
It is quite a heavy cream but when it's hot and you are wearing flowy type clothing it's not an issue at all.

really nice fragrance
I love this so much! it feels really light on your skin and moisturises it really well! It smells fabulous and lasts for ages! i use it on special occasions if I feel like a nice fragrance:)
It's great because it's two in one:) ( Perfumised AND Moisturising)

Rich and creamy
This butter really sets the bar for all others. It's got a beautiful coconut scent that lingers on your skin long after aplication. It's thick and luxurious, and melts right into your skin just as a fantastic butter should.
You also don't get left feeling oily either.
Im in love!

The scent is very full on, you just need to use a small amount unless you want to go round smelling like a tropical island (which isn't necessarily a bad thing if you like coconuts).

Beautiful super-moisturised skin!
* Always Loved and still I DO! *
I love anything coconut scented, so this was a delicious sensory treat for me! Like a tropical holiday without the sand flies.
Keeps my skin moisturised for 24 hours of improvement even after baths and showers.
Firms skin too :D
Luxurious winter treat for stressed out skin.
(Hmm... Body Shop :D I must say one thing, I still remember when these moisturisers were $10... what happened?! They are still around this in shops overseas, why the price difference.... I think the price increases are the only noticeable downside.)
4 Stars due to price.
The actual product though doesn't have any downside except for being stuck under your fingernails :D LOL!
I wish it was in a pretty tube as the swivel case is a little primitive now days.

I use this body butter when my skin is feeling extra dry, which thankfully isn't that often. My hubby got this for me thinking I would like the coconut smell, but I really don't and that's why it lost a star. But it is a very good moisturiser.
Just make sure you start off with a little and massage it into the skin til it's absorbed.
Like all body shop products it is expensive, but it does a great job at rehydrating dry and dull skin and the tub does last a long time.
I won't be buying this again when I finish it as I don't really like coconut scented things.
