Whoa, The Body Shop is kind of a hidden gem of products!
I self tan and I get airbrush spray tans a lot. Using a body exfoliant religiously is how I keep my fake tan looking naturally, makes application easy and flawless, and removed the dreaded lizard skin and blotchy fading. I have tried so many body exfoliants and they are either too rough and visibly scratch my skin or they are too gentle and don't do anything.
But this coconut body scrub is perfect! I have tried an assortment of super expensive ones and scrubs that are made for removing self tan and they aren't as good as this inexpensive gem.
2 times a week I'll take a bath and let my skin soak for about 20 minutes. Then I scoop up this scrub with my fingers and massage it over my entire body - usually for about 10 minutes. I can definitely feel like exfoliate my skin but it's not abrasive to the point where I'm concerned I'm taking of 30 layers of skin.
When I get out of the bath my skin doesn't feel dry as it normally does when I use other scrubs. I apply a good thick moisturizer - Kiehl Creme de Corps and my skin is so smooth and soft.
Packaging: comes in a plastic twist off top jar. I keep mine on my vanity and bring it to use only in the bath. That way I can avoid mixing water in the tube and diluting the product.
It smells like coconuts. It's a little teeny bopper but the smell doesn't linger.
It's cheap. It works. I'll repurchase.
I've been on the hunt for a reasonably priced cream body scrub. I feel like the oil-based scrubs leave my skin with a layer of oils, but not actually moisturized.
The Coconut Cream Body Scrub is just great! The scrubby bits are the perfect level of grit - definitely scrubby without feeling scratchy. The cream element is moisturizing and rinses off well, but your skin is still left feeling extremely soft and clean. The coconut smell lingers for quite some time - I love the smell, but if you're not one for coconut, I would skip this.
I followed with my Aveeno body lotion before bed and this morning my skin still feels amazing.
This product is amazing! I love how smooth my body feels, my body has never felt this smooth in my life. It's ideal to use this twice a week so I'm not to scared about running out of this quickly! I can't stop touching my body it's just so smooth
im completely in love with this stuff!!!! i was a little worried about weather i would ike it after reading some of the reviews, but i still couldn't wait for it to come in the mail. i dont know what everyone is talking about when they say it has a gel texture or that it leave a residue. i didn't experience either. its really nice and creamy, almost like using a body cream scrub. it rinses off nice and clean and smells like heaven, this is honestly the best real coconut product i have ever used. ive spent most of my life living in places like the Florida keys. ive also cracked open a fresh coconut that was still in the husk, hours of pain in the but work btw lol. and it smell like i just opened a fresh coconut. i have really sensitive skin and was glad that it has a good amount of scrubies without hurting my skin :) i think it will last a good while too. i cant wait to try some more of their scrubs. i also love that this is a company with a heart :)
I really like the smell of this scrub but I found that it stings my sensitive skin. Also, I found that it didn't rinse off that well.
LOVE THIS PRODUCT! Every few months, I'll go to the Body Shop to grab two body scrubs, I get something diffirent each time, as well as a cocunut each time. Coconut isn't my favourite smell, but I found this body scrub to work best for me. I used to have such dry skin and got a a lot of red bumps and ingrown hairs, but all those problems have gone away since using Body Shop's Body Scrubs, especailly this coconut one. I just bought a new jar yesterday, and although I love my Vanilla Spice Body I got during the Holidays, I'm excited to finish it so I can start using this coconut one(or I might get impatient and use the new chocolate one).
I also keep a jar of the coconut one at my moms for when I go to visit as the water where she lives is very harsh and leaves the skin itchy, but this body scrub definitely prevents my legs from itching.
I LOVE IT! This is the BEST body scrub I have EVER used. Firstly, the smell is heavenly. I wasn't that sure about the coconut scent at first, since it seemed overpowering, but one you apply it in the shower, it smells alot better. The smell also stays on your skin. I've gotten so many compliments and questions about what I'm using. The tiny pieces of coconut shell exfoliate amazingly and its not too harsh. Did i mention it smells amazing? Its also quite moisturizing. It also says its for dry skin, but I wouldn't really recommend it to people with dry skin. The packaging is really tight so you can keep it in the shower without fear of water getting in. The only downside is the price. However, one tub will last forever (I've been using mines for 4 months now and its not even half empty) and its worth every penny.
This is one of my favourite scrubs, which consist of the body shop and australian organics. All the body shop's creamy scrubs are amazing, much more so than the sugar scrubs and they really leave your skin feeling soft and silky and amazing. Since my skin can get a little dry i love that these scrubs retain my skins moisture and even very slightly moisturise. I have heard a few people complain about oily residue but i have never experienced this, even in summer when my skin is normal and doesnt require much moisture. I love trying new scrubs and new scents but i always come back to this one, because of the scent and texture. It is quite a strong coconut smell which some may not like but everyone i have shown this to loves the smell. Even if it is quite strong, the coconut only lingers for a little while after showering.
I absolutely love this body scrub! It smells so good!! It leaves my skin feeling very soft after using it. But really it smells amazing, just makes me want to eat the product LOL
Did not like this at all. Thank goodness I did not actually buy this (got as gift) because I would have been so disappointed. I used this scrub pre-self-tanner for exfoliation but after getting out of the shower and toweling off, this left a film on my skin that I could not rub off. I know this is the moisturizing properties of the coconut oil but I did not like the feeling of it. Needless to say, I did not self-tan that day because I was afraid it would not sink in because of the layer of oil on my skin. If you don't mind this feeling, than it would be ok. Smell wasn't bad but I have used much better exfoliators than this.
