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. continued >>
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.
OH MY GOD. This is amazing! I've never had such soft skin, and I've never smelt so good. my mom is 43 and she loves is as well. I got this and then I bought a different body wash and gave this to my mom and I miss it so much! We've run out and i had a dream about it! LOL. This is like my holy grail body wash. The bottle is huge!
While I've used St. Ives lotions for years, this was my first time trying one of their body washes. (I only use moisturizing body washes and I tend to favor Dove and Nivea body washes for their formulations.) Anyway, this was on sale at Target recently for $3.29, and I found the name "Triple Butters" and the ingredients list absolutely irresistable. Not bad at all from a moisturization point of view; Triple Butters is a very good formulation ... I have been using it as my night-time body wash and my skin feels nicely hydrated after shower. ....However, I'm extremely disappointed with the scent (or lack thereof) and feel strongly it should be labeled as "very lightly scented". In a world where it seems many are annoyed with fragrance in anything, I am not one of those people! Soooo when a product is entitled "creamy coconut", I have high expectations. The scent doesn't have to slap me in the face like irish spring soap, but it should at least last through the end of the shower! Why is this important to me? I use my nightly shower as a spa-like wind-down experience from the day's events, and scent actually enhances the shower for me. (I know, I probably need to get a life). Anyway, I like everything about this except the lack of scent. Adding an eyedropper's worth of sandalwood essential oil to the remainder just to get through the rest of the bottle and sadly, I will not be repurchasing...
This is far too heavy for me to use as a bodywash. I use it as a moisturizing, cheap, shaving gel. It smells like an amazing coconut tanning lotion, and it's sensitive enough to handle being around the ladybits without irritation. I absolutely love this!
I am seriously in love with this! After just one wash I could notice the difference. It made my skin soo soft and moisturized that I didn't even need to apply additional lotion afterwards. Shea, cocoa, and jojoba butter as well as coconut fruit extract make this the real deal! I love this and will for sure repurchase!
