Great moisturizer, and I really love the scent. The shea body butter is a little too heavy for my skin, so the lotion is perfect. It makes an excellent hand lotion as well!
Easily absorbed, super rich all-over moisture made with Community Trade babassu oil and Commnity Trade shea butter. Soaked into my skin quickly, no greasy residue. Does have a slight masculine smell, not enough to prevent me from purchasing it again. Not a huge fan of the smell, just like how throughly it absorbs. Comes in an 8.4oz pump, that's always nice and sanitary as well as helping in prevent too much waste. If the smell was better, I'd give it 5 lippies for sure!!!
Discovered this lotion when house-sitting for a family of three. It's in their guest bathroom. I really liked the smell and it moisturizes well, so I got one of my own. It's both sweet and a little masculine, but not too masculine. Will purchase again.
It's a shame that this lotion smells so strong and masculine or it would be my HG lotion. Everything else about it is perfect: it's very moisturizing without being greasy, it has a great thick and smooth texture that absorbs easily. It makes skin extremely smooth and soft.Even the packaging is great, I love pump bottles. So it comes down to the scent: it is strong, and like men's cologne to my nose. I had the same complaint with the Mango whip lotion: great lotion, too strong fruity scent. I wish TBS could come up with a neutral everyday scent, in the same lotion texture.
This is a very heavily fragranced, but quite well moisturizing body lotion that feels comfortable on the skin. I'll be carrying the travel-sized bottle in my gym bag and using it up after showering, but after that I won't be purchasing, because the scent is just too strong for me.

I got a friend to pick this up for me because we don't have a BS around here anywhere. The smell is really good, kind of nutty. Smooths on nicely and feels moisturizing, but if I use it on my dry hands it doesn't quite feel thick enough.
The other day though I realized it did smell a little bit like something a guy would wear, which turned me off. Oh welll it's still nice.
I loooove this body lotion!! It's a bit difficult to apply (doesn't spread out very easily) but god, how I love the smell!! And it leaves the skin ultra soft!! Not very long lasting though
This product worked pretty well for me. The scent is very nice, but a bit strong. I use this on my very dry legs and they become hydrated, however it isn't SUPER moisturizing. On the other hand, it absorbs very well and makes my skin soft to the touch. I would definitely buy this product again!
Got a free sample of this from a TBS promo around the holidays, used it at work after washing my hands. Nice consistency, pretty light yet emollient. The smell to me is very masculine and rich -- smells like a very expensive men's cologne. Pretty strong too! Definitely wouldn't use this all over my body for that reason alone. As a moisturizer, it's non-greasy and absorbs quickly, but it's not super-moisturizing. Wouldn't buy the full-size, and I don't think I'd recommend it to people with super-dry, chapped hands.
I've always loved the Shea lotion, but I was surprised to see a Shea Whip on the store a few days ago. It's so light and it gets absorbed easily. I love it! I'm sticking to this instead of the body butter (which is so thick). The best lotion from TBS yet!
