I have to agree with another reviewer that says this reeks like a cheap vanilla candle. As soon as I opened and sniffed, it put me off immediately... Overwhelmingly artifical coconut/vanilla smell.. The cream is nice, but not amazing.. It is not greasy at all and sinks in, but I can't imagine this working well for someone with severely dry skin issues.

Dang it! I was SO excited to get this as I love coconut scents and I watched a Youtube review lauding this cream, stating it smelled of a natural dessicated coconut.. NOT so for me, at all.. I had bought one for me and one as a Christmas gift, but taking both back to TJ's... I should have asked Trader Joe's to let me sample it first. they usually do that with their products..

I gave this three lippies because it's very hydrating, which a body butter should be. I actually give it 5 for that. However, the engineered coconut scent (definitely NOT what actual coconut oil smells like) is unbelievably overwhelming - to the point I can still smell it the next day. Seriously, no product needs to have such a strong smell! It's actually stronger than some perfumes. Soooo - if you have very dry skin and want everyone in the room to know you are wearing a fake coconut scent - BUY THIS!! If you are bothered by strong engineered scents, don't buy this. I, unfortunately, won't.

The smell of this is really unnatural. I usually live where there are coconuts abound, and naturally made coconut products. This body butter has a heavy synthetic coconut smell. It's not very creamy, has a kind of chunky texture, and is not very easy to rub into my skin. It also went rancid after a few months. To the garbage!

I bought this because it's available year-round, and I'd finally run out of the TJ's pumpkin body butter. I didn't like the smell, it was that of fake coconut. The texture was a little "off"-- not really like a body butter, more like a regular lotion. It didn't seem to moisturize as well. Ah man, I'll have to wait to pumpkin to be back in season!

I absolutely love this stuff. I get lazy when it comes to lotion I'll be honest. I have different brands and scents in my bath room. I can't get enough of this Body Butter though. The scent is amazing. It has this coconut scent mixed with this warm vanilla Shea butter type scent. It isn't too sweet smelling. It moisturizes nicely without being greasy. It soaks into the skin fast and real hydrates. I can't stop using this. I put it on at least twice a day. Love this stuff plus it's cheap. I know I'll be sticking up for winter when my skin gets really dry

I can't believe that I am just now discovering this luxurious gem. I've passed it by so many times in Trader Joe's. It's a good price so I thought I'd try it, if I didn't like it, hey, at least I didn't spend a fortune on it. This stuff is amazing.The smell is like a coconut vanilla frosting! The consistency is fluffy & creamy and it glides on nicely. Usually, I am so lazy to apply lotion all over, but this feels like a treat! The smell also lasts, and I get complimented all of the time. My only con is that I wish the moisturization factor would last longer. Of course, I have dry skin so it may just be me. I can't wait till the pumpkin body butter comes out in the fall.

I really wanted to love this stuff after reading about it but the smell is the biggest downside to me. I love coconut everything, and even lather myself in coconut oil on occasion and I just feel like this smells absolutely nothing like coconut. it reeks of a cheap vanilla candle when you put it on. the hydrating aspect is okay, nothing to write home about. I just can't get over the smell. not what I was expecting.

This is just an excellent product. I find it really sinks in to my skin, and is very hydrating, but not greasy feeling. I love the texture and consistency, so soft and lovely smelling. If you love the scent of coconut, you have to try this. You get a good size tub, and as I recall the price was only around five dollars. This was my first beauty product purchased at Trader Joe's. I must go back and see what else they have because this was just so good.

I love this stuff! My mom had purchased this for herself but I had to keep it for myself. It has a great, whipped consistency. It's thick and fairly moisturizing without being sticky or oily. For me, it's best in the winter, when my skin tends to dry out more than usual, or for especially dry spots. I'll definitely repurchase this when I run out.
