i bought the mini-tub of this yummy body butter today and it's wonderful,tropical and delicious smelling=perfect for the beach and it smells even better with TBS vanilla perfume oil! it's ULTRA MOISTURIZING!!!!
This was my first TBS Body Butter & I like it very much, smells nice like REAL Coconut & moisturizes REALLY well! I love to pair this up with my Asquith & Sommerset Foot Cream in Creamy Coconut, because together they make me smell sooo good. Wonderful Warm weather scent, however I like wearing it in the winter too because it reminds me of summer !
This a more affordable version of lancome body cream which made my skin glow, but was way too expensive and did not last long. Anyways back to coconut BB, I think everyone smells it differently (Depends if you are smoker etc.). I was brought up on a tropical island and I can confirm that this is a yoghurty coconut smell. This is the one and only moisturiser aside from the lancome one that makes my skin GLOW! I am naturally tan and I feel like a golden-bronze goddess with this product. The yogurty-coconut smell in it makes feel, and I hope I am not forward here, like a sex goddess (my fiancee loves the smell). It definitely does not smell like cheap tan lotion or whatever.
Once again, this is my opinion.
My big complaint is definitely the packaging. I tend to have sweaty hands and it gets very hard to open the tub and I always have to scrape off some of the body butter from my long fingernails. But at least, you get everything out of the tub, I do wish they would come with a tub-pump combo, for the best of both worlds! The price is a tad high but compared to Lancome and for the performance I get, it is more than worth it and I always get the once-a-year two for $15 cdn each.
I'm a sucker for the smell of coconuts, so this is more of a product I continually pick up and sniff as opposed to actually using it. I love the scent, but the moisturiser is too heavy for me; I can't even use a tiny dab.
I absolutely LOVE this! I recently bought this a long with the new Satsuma Body Butter. Both are amazing. The coconut is definitely a must have especially in the winter, spring or fall. May be too greasy for summertime but the key is not overdoing it and not using too much. I find I only need to use a small amount where I need it. The smell also is amazing. Very tropical and a perfect smell for Spring or Summer. I love this! This is definitely a product I will never go without. Leaves my skin soft and smooth...heavenly! The container is also good and a generous size but be warned when you open it is may have slided to one side. That is easily smoothed out with use though, amazing product! It may seem a little pricey at 18.00 CDN but it will last a long time. Definitely worth it! :)
WOW! I keep this baby by the bed at night. If you ask me, it's a tad too oily to use for day but it's truly a miracle worker. At night, I slather my feet and ankles with this, then apply a little pair of socks. I use the rest that's on my hands for my elbows knees and hands. I'm off to sleep and in the morning a definite miracle has been performed.
I love the smell of this - reminds me of home. It is really thick and a tad oily - not something I would use as an everyday moisturizer. It's nice coming out of winter, giving my skin that extra zap it needs to be alright. Packaging in the tub as always is a little un-travel-friendly.
I got a sample of this in a swap and, although I love the smell, I think it is way too greasy/oily and doesn't absorb into skin. I use natural oils (olive, grapeseed) on my skin and they seem to absorb more easily than this body butter - perhaps it's the other ingredients. Might be good if you had super-dry skin, but I prefer the Alba Botanica butters - I find them less greasy and more moisturizing.
YUMMY and TROPICAL!I am now on my 2nd tub and can't get enough. At first this lotion tends to be a bit slick and oily. I find the less I apply (legs, arms, feet) the less my skin feels slick. I also like how the lotion gives your skin a bit of a sheen and how it eventually soaks very well into the skin. The only thing I detest about TBS body butters is the tubs! They look so cheap and they are too big and clumsy I find.
This scent would be perfect for summer and it's strong enough that it's a fragrance on it's own. I would definetly buy this one again.
Nothing beats using this when it's minus 30 outside as it takes me right back to summer!
Another plus is that men can wear this as well and not smell girly.
Minus: the price tag. I do not believe this product is worth the price. I find the Coconut lotion called Spa Resource found at Walmart is just as effective and actually has likeness of real coconut.
I got this in a GWP, and the whole reason I spent enough to get the GWP was for this baby! I'm a huge fan of coconut anything, so this was no exception! I love the way it smells, it's so tropical. It's creamy, and much more rich than I thought it would be. Moisturizing potential could be a bit higher, but I'll deal with it because it smells so heavenly. If I could eat this, I would! I also dislike the packaging. Something about shoving fingers into a tub of body butter is unsanitary. I almost don't like to do it unless I know my hands are clean!! I love this product, and recommend it to anyone who loves coconut. :D
