I really like this body lotion's consistency - really light and spreadable, absorbs quickly, but still really significantly moisturizing. my skin's texture is lovely after this and my skin feels very soothed - it's great for after shaving. my skin's a little sensitive but this leaves it feeling very comfortable.
all that being said, i definitely feel it's more of a summer lotion if you have slightly dry skin like me. during the winter i prefer something thicker. i live in new orleans and it handles the humidity well, i feel clean and soft as opposed to greasy. it's also comforting for after being in the sun too long.
the scent is an enjoyable, true coconut. it doesn't smell unnatural in any way, so if you enjoy the scent of coconut oil(i usually do) then you'll like it.
the coconut definitely lingers, however. if you'd rather smell like something else you won't have much luck. for this reason i really wish there was an unscented variety for the times i'd prefer to wear a perfume, etc.
the packaging is fine - a simple flip cap and plastic squeeze bottle make it very portable. my only gripe is that i can't find it in a size bigger than 8 oz, and i go through it fairly quickly! the price is decent but it would be even more so if the bottle was bigger.
This is a unique, light and liquidy lotion with an interesting coconut-inspired scent. It works well as a moisturizing summer lotion because it isn't thick, moisturizes well, and absorbs fast.
Pros: light but still moisturizing. Smells awesome and the scent lingers just enough to make me feel sexy. Feels good to slather it on, especially in hot weather.
Cons: not too expensive and easily found in most organic grocery stores, but I cashed my bottle pretty fast. I wish it came in a larger size with and with a pump. Packaging is odd for moisturizer, but perfectly functional. Plus, I think it's part of the hippie lotion appeal.
This stuff rocks as a light body lotion. I don't often apply lotion except for on my hands (and sunscreen of course), but I like keeping this around to occasionally use on my legs after shaving. I live in a hot humid climate so thick, heavily scented products are not appealing to me. Skin Trip has a very loose/liquidy texture, glides right on and absorbs fast, and the smell is very summer-y and natural - slightly coconut-y but not sweet. I could probably find some basic drugstore options that work just as well but this is fairly unique and lasts a long time, so I think I'll be using it for a while.
this lotion is a must have for me. it is extremely moisturizing. after showering i rub this into my skin and it leaves my skin feeling great. i like the scent as well. i use an egyptian musk oil and it mixes with the true coconut scent. i also use this in my hair. every time i rub this into my hands i scrunch this into my hair to keep my curls moisturized. it is vey effective as a moisturizer. i have been using this lotion ever since an ex-boyfriend introduced me to this two years ago. i have turned a few friends onto it as well.
Of all products I've ever tried, this is probably my favorite. For over five years this was the ONLY moisturizer I ever put on my face. Recently, I've been experimenting with jojoba oil and hemp seed oil, but I keep coming back to this. It hydrates my skin, gives it a nice glow, smells lovely, and does not clog my pores (I've read that coconut oil can clog pores for some people, and this stuff has coconut oil in it, so it wouldn't hurt to be cautious if you ever find yourself trying this out). My mom has been using this stuff since she was little. She's 50 now, has been a heavy smoker most of her life, but her skin is to die for. She does nothing to it but wash and uses this as a moisturizer. I doubt that I'll ever be without this stuff. And yes, when I wash my face at the end of the day, some twelve hours after applying my Skin Trip, I can still smell the coconut.
It softens my skin and keeps it soft. Unfortunately it contains dimethicone. Although dimethicone is an effective skin barrier, my skin hates it. So does my scalp and hairline (hair products containing dimethicone) because I break out in little itchy bumps. I was hoping this lotion wouldn't, and fortunately it doesn't. It has a true coconut (no pineapple or flowers) scent with some sweetness. I love layering it with my Kiehl's Original Musk Oil for a sexy coco-musk. It loses a lippy for being a 'natural' that isn't.
I love love love this lotion. It has the most wonderful and natural coconut scent. I have tried many other products in coconut and most of them smelled like plastic or something totally artificial (too sweet for example).
Mountain Ocean gets this scent totally right. I have actually been using this stuff for years. I tend to wear it more in the winter when the scent of it will take me back to warm days walking on the beach in Hawaii.
My mom had been using this lotion for years before I was born, and introduced it to me when I was a preteen. I loved it - mainly for the smell. It must be said though, I have never met a coconut-scented product that I didn't like. But this is unlike other coconut scents I have smelled - it's milkier and not overly sweet, which I really love. This is a great moisturizer for summer, those who just need something light, and/or those who really don't like having to work a product into their skin for twenty minutes, because this sinks in quickly. It's perfect for when you're in a rush. As other reviewers have noted, the fragrance lasts all day, so that's great if you enjoy the scent. It does last a long time, but I don't find it to be cloying at all. For me, however, I often need a heavier moisturizer, especially during the winter months. Also, I have become a member of the ingredients police over the years, and this product is not as "all natural" as I once assumed it was. I prefer anything that sinks into my skin to be as natural as possible. But overall, I really enjoy this product, and would repurchase it again and again for the nostalgia factor alone.
Is it a nice moisturiser? Yes! Is it as natural as you might hope? No. But, its a nice body moisturiser and Ill easily use it up. Would I repurchase? Not in a hurry.
The smell is....so odd. I was expecting a natural coconut scent not this that smells like my legs have been fried in sesame oil!
Smells like vanilla plus coconut which somehow ends up like root beer! Not sticky or fake. Will try on entire bod.
