This has a creamy consistency and it absorbs well into my skin. It is glycerine and soy bean oil based which is fine for my skin. While it is not too moisturizing as I want it to be, it makes a nice lotion to use when I don't need anything too heavy and greasy. The scent lasts a good while and is not too coconutty. I agree with others that the scent is quite balanced and I find myself reaching for it when I need a mood boost. I would buy again.

After falling head over heels for the St. Ives Naturally Soothing Oatmeal & Shea Butter Lotion, I had this Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract on my list of things to try. Honestly, I'm so glad it did. It went on sale for $4CDN and I just snapped it up.
This lotion has a delicious texture just like my HG Naturally Soothing Oatmeal & Shea Butter Lotion. It's thick and creamy! It takes a little bit of time to absorb into skin as well, but I don't mind. While this lotion isn't exactly fast absorbing it is certainly not one of those lotions that you have to rub in for hours (ex. Avon Intensive Care or even Nivea Creme).
This lotion is quite moisturizing as well, but slightly less moisturizing then the Oatmeal & Shea butter. It's much more moisturizing then a few other lotions I've tried such as the Garnier Body Intensive or even the Vaseline Total Moisture lotion.
The smell of this lotion is divine! It's floral sweet and I just love it. Ugh. It's not incredibly strong either, but faint and lovely. I can easily smell the coconut and the soft, powdery scent of the orchid. It's divine. The scent makes it more then a lotion that you use; it's a lotion that you experience.
I would purchase this lotion a million times over. I love it!

The scent is not too overpowering it is very balanced. I personally never purchased coconut lotion even though it makes your skin very soft I don't like the coconut smell is too much for my nose. However when I smelled this lotion before purchasing it was perfect! And after using it for three weeks I am still amazed how it leaves my skin so soft, it dries pretty fast and it lasts. Like hours after putting it on my skin feels soft I don't need to apply again, only on my legs sometimes. Really recommend it! PS use it after the shower too.

I bought this because I liked the collagen lotion from st. Ives, but not the scent. I love the scent of this one though. I apply it every night after my shower, and it absorbs quickly and isn't greasy. It moisturizes well. I also like that it's paraben free, since I'm putting it all over my body. I like these lotions & I'll likely repurchase.

I bought this because st. Ives Oatmeal and Shea Butter lotion is one of my all time favorite lotions but I like coconut scents and decided to try it out. It's a nice lotion with an okay texture, but to be honest this still leaves my skin kinda dry, and I would NOT recommend using this after shaving because it'll feel like you didn't apply lotion in the first place. I usually use this and apply Vaseline w/cocoa butter overtop to seal in the moisture and that helps tremendously, but I shouldn't have to do that with a lotion in the SUMMER. My skin can get ridiculously dry I suppose tho so whatever. The pump sucks near the end of the bottle as do most lotions, so that's not really a problem to me. If you're not looking for a lot of moisture and enjoy the scent of coconut I'd go for this, but for more intense moisture I'd definitely go for their oatmeal shea butter one.

This lotion is perfect! I apply after every shower and it keeps my skin so soft throughout the day. It absorbs very well and is non-greasy. It has just the right consistency; it is not too thick like a cream and it is not watery at all like the cheap lotions. It has a lovely tropical scent that isn't overpowering. At just under $5 a bottle, this lotion is extremely well-priced. I keep a bottle at work and refill a small travel-sized bottle to keep in my purse.
I used to use Moist Hemp Pomegranate Mango lotion, which was very similar in consistency, absorption, and scent to St. Ives, but at $8 a bottle (a few ounces less than St. Ives) it was getting costly. I thought it was totally irreplaceable until I found this St. Ives lotion. This is a keeper!

I decided to stray from my usual body lotion and try this out. I absolutely love the scent of this. Floral and fruity I would describe it and it definitely made it enjoyable to use.
It absorbs into the skin quite quickly which is good if you need to get dressed immediately but I found myself having to use more product and therefore was more time consuming. I also found I didn't feel moisturized after a few hours of application.
I have now finished up the whole bottle and will not be repurchasing because of this. I found this lotion not as moisturizing as Vaseline's Cocoa Butter body lotion, which I apply and I still feel moisturized the next day personally. It is a bit heavier so it needs to be absorbed for longer before dressing but I prefer it.
Overall, a good moisturizer, loved the scent, but not for me.

I love this. It has everything you could ask for in a lotion. It smells fantastic (but not too strong), it moisturizes well, it isn't greasy, and it isn't expensive. Perfect for an everyday lotion. Another great product from St. Ives!

What a great body lotion this is. I use it right after I shower (when I don't have time to wait for coconut oil to absorb) and it leaves my skin so hydrated and smooth until I shower again (next day) it smells so good, and I feel like I am on a tropical vacation. I am on to my second bottle.
