I adore coconut, and this is my favorite scent of all the Body Butters with cocoa butter and chocolate as runners-up. I favor the foodie ones rather than the florals. I've bought several fragrances over the years, but I've bought coconut the most. Warm and rich and comforting. It's butter - it's thick. It's not for people who don't like oil.

PROS:

The delicious coconut scent.

The texture is decadently creamy. All those oils and shea butter make a favorite fix for dry skin, especially feet and hands.

The Body Shop has promotions and specials to reward you for buying more than one item. They occasionally offer deals, such as 3 for the price of 2, and have lots of sales. It costs $21 for 6.75 ounces, which sounds like a lot but one tub tends to last a few months.

This also comes in a little 1.69 ounce size for $7. The mini is nice for trips, and I've been known to keep one in my desk at work.

I appreciate the company's cruelty free policy and its community efforts in global trade.

CONS:

Not many. I would never put this on my face due to all the fragrance. It's not formulated for the face.

Since this company introduced its Body Butters, they have always come in a little tub. Sometimes I think I might prefer a tube. Perhaps this isn't a practical suggestion because the consistency is quite thick, but it can get messy at times and when you open the lid, you expose the entire product to the air.

I buy these at Ulta or from The Body Shop itself (rather than other sellers online) to make sure I'm getting a fresh, unopened product that hasn't passed its expiration date.

i bought this butter already a couple of times ever since my teens. Whenever i'm in a coconutty mood i reach for this. the scent is very true to the real thing. it's fresh and yummy. As for hydration it does a very good job. It keeps my skin soft for about 12-18 hours, so that's very descent to me. I will always have one of these in bathroom at some point.

I love this product. It moisturizes well but a little too pricey for me. I purchased a coconut scented body butter called kocushea butter from oleinbeauty.com for half the price. It contained all exotic butters and oils and smelled yummy!

I LOVE the smell of this product. Ugh and it's so smooth in texture on the skin. I was afraid to buy body butters because I have tried some that just feel like they don't absorb and then I walk around like a sticky mess. But seriously this is awesome absorbs right up!! Smells like a bakery. Downside is the price. Hate it. Over priced so I'm sticking with Nivea 24 hour lotions.

I was surprised at how much I have come to love this. I had been using the BS coconut milk lotion, and got very annoyed when I realized how much dimethicone was in it. It smelled great, but felt cheap on my skin.
This on the other hand feels positively dreamy, very rich, melts into skin.... and the coconut scent here is slightly different, and deeper than their body milk version. It smells so heavenly in this butter, I can't get enough of it. Its got cocoa butter in it, and I think this adds to the coconut smell in a great way. The coconut fragrance lingers and develops, almost like a perfume, but not strong at all, and not too much sillage. Very natural smelling. Sensual skin-scent.

Keeps my skin very deeply moisturized, and adds a really nice sheen too. It does have a bit of dimethicone, but less then the body milk.

Fantastic product. Will buy the bigger tub next time.

I have repurchased this body butter many times . Been using it for well over 10 years. It's moisturizing, smells good, soaks in very well into the skin. A little goes a long way! The smell is wonderful milky coconut scent that definetly is like a suntan lotion. It can be a bit greasy in the summer but it does leave your arms/legs with a nice sheen and who doesn't want to smell like coconut in the summer!?

I get through stages when I absolutely love this coconut body butter - especially during those hot summer months coconut body butter works magic.

As with all of these butters it smells delicious and exotic. It has quite a dense, thick texture but is easy to blend. If you have dry skin or just want something that smells delicious and does good to your body - add this one to your skincare routine.

I am slightly disappointed with this. The texture and smell are gorgeous when the tub is first Opened. It actually feels like real butter as it has a hard consistency so it feels as though it's going to be nourishing. However once applied on the skin for me it develops a slightly false smell and tacky texture that feels synthetic. It sounds odd but it feels so natural and organic when It's first put on to the skin so I'm a bit disappointed :(. I probably won't repurchase as it doesn't really work at hydrating or moisturising my skin to be honest. It's a shame because it smells and initially feels great.

I really love this body butter a lot! I love anything from The Body Shop, to be honest, but I have to say that the coconut body butter truly is amazing and definitely a classic! It does as a body butter should do, moisturize and leave your skin soft and supple with a slightly buttery smooth feel to it. It is amazing! It especially works its magic when you take a shower and then smooth it into your skin before bed. Then, you will wake up to luscious, hydrated skin that is truly irresistibly soft! And the smell is wonderful! It's soft, creamy, sweet and simple and it is definitely a staple that all of us girls should have! I personally love it! The only thing is the price which is way too expensive for my taste, but it is worth the money when used sparingly. Amazing product! Please go try it!
