For someone with dry skin who is constantly on the search for the best lotion, I am SO glad I picked this up. I had previously been using Nivea Smooth Sensations with Shea Butter because I wanted something cheap and moisturizing that wasn't a body butter or thick cream like Eucerin. That just didn't cut it for me. This is the thickest lotion I've ever used, so be aware of that before you buy it. It does feel sticky at first, but then it sinks in and the feeling later is akin to the way your hands and feet feel after a parrafin wax treatment. There is a slight citrus scent from the orange oil in it. I find it mildly pleasant. I use this daily. I have a big bottle with a pump at home, and a smaller squeeze tube that I keep at work. I think I like this even better than pricier lotions that I have tried and loved in the past (bliss naked body butter, kiehl's creme de corps)
Lotions/ Creams -Tree Hut - Coconut Lime Shea Butter

This is a fantastic product! I first got this in tahitian grass, but i dislike that scent. I liked the product so much that I went out and bought it in coconut lime. The formula is fantastic. I use it every time after I shave my legs. It sinks in wonderfully on wet skin, though it can feel heavy/sticky on dry skin. I like that shea butter is listed toward the top of the ingredient list (3rd I think). I can really tell the difference between this and other body butters that only have a negligible amount of shea butter, since I LOVE pure shea butter. I don't like the tub packaging because it's unhygienic, but I'm not a germophobe, so it doesn't prevent me from loving it. I make sure to only dip into it when I've just showered or after washing my hands. The scent is very tropical and I like it SO much better than BBW's coconut lime verbena fragrance. I bought it in the spring, and I may get tired of it by winter time, but this will definitely be a summer staple. It is somewhat strong, but I find it to be less strong than BBW products. The consistency of this body butter is perfect for me. I like it as much or more than much more expensive lotions and creams that I've tried (including Kiehl's Creme de Corps and Bliss body butter).
