Great hit of coconut scent when you first squirt on your sponge...but its downhill all the way from there. Meh type of moisture after a bath. Still looking for a great long lasting coconut shower gel. Paraben free which is a good thing but just not overwhelmed with staying power of fragrance.
I got this in the vanilla scent for a little over $3 and let me tell you, it smells SO GOOD, LIKE YOURE EATING A DESSERT OR SOMETHING <3 The texture of the substance is super creamy, but it's also pretty runny so be careful when squeezing it out, or else you'll be using way more than you need to. It leaves my skin super moisturized, but also very clean. I'm not sure what else to say other than that you should go buy it, like, right now. Or just when you get the time to <3
This is a really good drugstore body wash. I tend to use soaps from Lush or from Bath and Body Works just because I like their scents, but I was moving and hadn't unpacked my shower stuff yet so I randomly picked this up. I wasn't expecting to be impressed with it, but I actually am! I love the scent -- obviously it's a coconut scent, but it isn't that fake, tanning lotion coconut scent. To me, this has a more food-type smell, like coconut cookies. It smells awesome, but unfortunately the smell doesn't linger on the skin. But what I really like is how moisturizing this body wash is. So many soaps and body washes claim to be moisturizing, but I find that very few actually are. Typically, that doesn't bother me so much, as I don't have dry skin anyway. But I did notice a difference in my skin when I used this! It felt softer and smoother, which was a nice change! The packaging is a little boring, but it's nothing to complain about, either. Definitely give this a shot if you've been hunting for a moisturizing shower gel!
AMAZING SMELL. LOVE THE SMELL
none . cant think of one.
I LOVE THIS body wash! smells AMAZING.smells delicious! it is also very moisturizing.even though its very moisturizing i love to also use it in the summer. i usually use this with my exfoliating gloves, you can get these just about anywhere, drugstore, body shop, walmart. i bought this body wash on sale for $3 at Loblaws!!! that is a really really good deal . because it is HUGE and it is AMAZING. the original price i think is around $6 or $7 CAD.
I have been having insanely dry, itchy winter skin and this body wash has really helped! Beautiful, subtle fragrance and a great price point. What's not to love?
One of the better washes you can buy at the drugstore. I'd use this over most other things, but I don't find it to be intensely moisturizing at all. My body (in contrast to my face) is very prone to dryness and this dries it out slightly. Only slightly, so it's better than most other soaps. My skin likes Castile soaps much better, but they're not practical enough for me (liquid versions lather disappears about instantly, bar soap version doesn't work well for shaving). I also have really sensitive skin and this does cause some mild itching. Again, better than most other things at the drugstore, but that bar is set low. If I had to choose one widely available drugstore soap it'd be this one, so in a pinch I'd repurchase, but I am definitely looking for better.
Very respectable ingredients. Very unoffensive fragrance. As the bottle states, it's hypoallergenic so it is kind to your skin. This wash does not dry out my skin nor does it add anything to it. It's a very neutral wash. I feel clean with no gross residue like what Bath & Body Works body washes leave on my skin. This is my go to body wash...I'm on probably my twentieth bottle or so. Very affordable to boot. I recommend this to everyone.
Very nice body wash with a delicious vanilla coconut scent, more foody than aromatic, it reminds me of cake. It is very gentle to the skin and I use it to wash my face as it is an excellent makeup remover, especially for long lasting makeup, and I also use it as a shampoo when I need to clarify from build up. The sulphates in it clean the hair/skin deeply but the butters replenish the oils back so that it is not drying at all.
I have kind of a love/dislike relationship (hate is WAY too strong a word for how I feel) with this product as of late. In the love column:The scent is absolutely amazing, as it smells like natural coconut, rather than the cloying, artificial tanning oil smell that most coconut containing products seem to take on. It also lathers fairly well, and though the scent isn't extremely long-lasting after you get out of the shower, you can smell it on your skin for at least a couple of hours. Most of all, I love that this body wash contains 100% natural extracts, is made without phthalates or parabens, is hypoallergenic, and is not tested on animals--and you can get it for less than $5! I've tried to be more conscious of the products that I use on my sensitive skin, and it's nice that I can go to the drugstore, pick up a few products from the St. Ives line, and know that I'm both saving money and doing something good for my skin.
However, with all that said, this just isn't the right body wash for my oily skin type. Though I love the scent and that it is natural, it's a bit too moisturizing for me. I guess I should have deduced that it would be, considering that it is dubbed "Intensely Hydrating", but I was mostly going by the smell and the ingredients list when I chose it. I need a body wash that is more clarifying, as using this body wash and then applying lotion afterward is too much for me.It just doesn't give me the squeaky clean feeling that I like, so I am currently looking for a more cleansing body wash from the St. Ives line that fits the bill. But I do recommend this for people who are struggling with that pesky dry winter time skin, and I wouldn't totally count out the possibility of me never buying this again.
How can something so wonderful be so affordable? St. Ives Creamy Coconut has glycerin, shea butter, cocoa butter and jojoba to moisturize skin. Works great to cleanser and moisturize skin. Has a nice coconut scent that is not overwhelming.
