This body butter smells heavenly, however, it doesn't sink into my skin at all. When i first applied it, it seemed mouisturizing enough, but after a while, it just felt greasy, cause it was just sitting on top of my skin. I would not repurchase this product.

I am glad I found this! I really adore the smell of coconut, especially in summer. I got the minis and I can throw them in my purse for a quick pick-me-up. They are deeply moisturizing, slightly greasy at first but they blend well. Not too expensive as I don't use alot, $10 each - may find it cheaper on Ebay. I wouldn't use this on my whole body as it is heavy and the weather is getting warmer, but the scent is just like suntan lotion but more crisp - almost a relaxing scent. I love it - definite repurchase.

I like this body butter (to be honest, I love quite a few of the body butters from TBS) because it smells delicious, is extremely moisturizing, and believe it or not but I think it helps me tan better (not that I tan intentionally but when when i'm outside wearing this, I seem to get tanned alot faster and evenly/beautifully). The only thing I dislike is that it's quite greasy and hence use it on a once per week/two weeks basis. Regardless, in all, I love this one and will continue to purchase.

This is my absolute favourite summer body butter !! I have combination skin, so the t-zone in my face tends to get quite oily in the summer, so I immediately switch from my winter moisturizers to a shine control lotion and toner !! My BODY however, still needs the attention, and this is fabulous. The scent is delicious and refreshing at the same time, perfect for those hot summer days when you want your skin to be GLOWING !!

It's good for the dry skin I get on my legs and down the sides of my body but the scent can make me gag at times. I don't think it smells of coconut at all, more like banana. It can feel a bit greasy at times, at others it soaks right in. My little tub had lasted ages though.

I love this stuff! It's really great for dry legs! I use it all the time, in the winter and summer. I love the smell, too. Even though it's a bit pricier than a lot of drugstore brands ($18), the tub lasts me a looong time and TBS doesn't test on animals!
Def. a HG product!

i love the body shop body butters. they smell great and are very good at moisturising ur skin so it ticks both boxes. i have two, this one and the brazil nut. it does have a lovely coconut smell, quite sweet. they call it the 'yummy one' in the store. sums it up. i would not get this one again as i want to try other ones.

Overall rating: I really like this body butter, even though I agree with some of the others that it does not have a "true" coconut scent. No mind to me because I like the scent nevertheless. I especially like the texture: exactly what you would imagine if you dug into a stick of real butter to apply it to your skin. It is *very* rich and somewhat greasy when applied, but this sinks in well overnight. I use it on my feet, legs, and knees when the dry January air hits. Nothing else works as well or feels as good IME. This is my HG foot and leg cream for January and February, when my skin on those areas gets dry and flakey.
Price: Slightly higher than average price (at a drugstore or Wal-Mart–type store), i.e., $10 for a mini-tub (1.75 oz.), of which I have 4 for the winter months. I used up 1 mini-tub in the past 3 weeks, but I really slather it on! YMMV.
Packaging: Nothing unusual or clever; just your standard cute little plastic tub with a photo of the product "flavor" on the label.
Would I buy again: Yes, if I couldn't swap for it!

olive butter is my first favorite and coconut is my second! very creamy and emollient and great for drier skin. have a tendency to slather my feet with this. when i use this it gives me that tropical scent (pick me up) which reminds me of being on a hawaiian vacation (oh so corny but true).
