I received a free 50ml tub of this with Marie Claire magazine last month and fell in love. The texture is great and makes my skin look dewy and glowing (though I wouldn't apply this before putting on a silk fabric as I think it would leave a stain). The scent is beautiful - I always receive compliments on it (more than on my 50 Chanel perfume!) My only quibble is on the price of the body butters, they keep going up, and I don't think 12 is good value for the 200ml tub when it lasts me a short time, and isn't even what I consider a premium brand!

Everybody knows what their body butters are like, and they're pretty consistent with texture throughout the line. The only difference lies in the fragrance. This was a little strong for me--I liked Olive better, but my favorite now is the limited Moringa one (perfect scent for summer!)

Finally, a Body Butter that lives up to all the hype!! I have tried three. I tried Mango, which I found greasy and the smell was cloying and pungent. The Shea Butter moisturized well enough, but it just sat on my skin and didn't sink in at all. The Coconut Body Butter is for Very Dry Skin, and I was worried I would have the same problem with its not sinking in. However, it is of a light enough texture that it simply melts into your skin, leaving behind softness, sheen, and a wonderfully authentic coconut scent. The scent brings me back to long days spent on Virgin Island beaches with turquoise waters and palm trees overhead and sun-warmed skin :) A definite re-buy; I love it!

EDIT: I have found that I have begun to have the same problem with this BB as with the others: IT DOESNT SINK IN! It sits on top of my dry skin. It's so strange. Won't buy again. A shame, because it smells heavenly.

A word of warning for coconut body butter virgins - this isn't your ordinary sickly coconut milk scent. Instead, this is divinely sexy, dark and warm -> somehow the Body Shop have managed to capture the essence of sexy summer nights at the beach and put it into this unassuming brown tub.

Compared to the perfume oil, the body butter scent is much deeper and more 'foody', and lasts all day on me. The texture is quite rich, so I mostly use this on my legs and elbows during the day, and then slather some more all over at night, especially in winter.

IMO this is the best scent out of all the Body Shop body butters (trust me I've bought nearly all of them! Mango comes in at 2nd place, with Brazil Nut a close 3rd) and this is the only one I have repurchased again and again. Serious HG. For reference the most recent Australian rrp is $27.95 AUD for 200ml size.

This body butter doesn't smell exactly like coconut but it has a nice texture. A bit too heavy for the summer. A tip to those posting about the smaller container: keep your old small containers and refill from the 200ml size : twice the price for four times the amount of product.

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.
