In love. . . well sort of. I'm not the biggest fan of the scent although I don't find it offensive and I do wish they made it available in larger bottles. I heard about this from my mother's friend, who has gorgeous soft hands with such plump skin at her age (60's) that I had to know what she used. She whipped out a bottle of TBS Cocoa Butter Hand and Body.

Now I …

This sells for $12 a bottle and is not worth it. The lotion itself is thin and a little watery with a fragrance that I find unpleasant. The scent sticks to your hands and takes a while to fade. The upside is that this lotion works extremely well. It's perfect as a light summer lotion for your body.

One of the best lotions I have used used. Smells great and works well on my skin (and my skin is very sensitive). The only downside is how expensive it is. If it was cheaper, I would bathe in this stuff. Seriously.

I bought this lotion wanting a thin and light moisturizer for summer. It is good for that purpose. I don't have any problems with it… except for…

the scent. Which is horrible. I tried on a small amount of it on my arm before I bought it, and even liked the smell. I didn't find it very strong, which was the reason why I didn't buy the coconut lotion (I love their coconut …

My primary reason for continuing to repurchase this Body Shop product is the fragrance. Strangely enough it smells nothing like the companion body butter but has a highly addictive, summer beach vacation scent that is reassuring, carefree and not at all overpowering.

The formula is pretty watery and wouldn't do for serious moisturizing, especially the shins. It's great …

This is a thin, slightly watery lotion more suitable for spring/summer use than winter. It absorbed quickly enough and left my skin hydrated and my cuticles soft when I used it on my hands.


But the stench: most foul! I can only describe it as a sharp, chemical smell that has very little in common with the chocolaty, comfy smell of cocoa. It is not remotely similar to the lovely …

I bought this because i love the cocoa butter body butter and the smell. The hand and body lotion doesn't smell anything like the body butter and when i got it there was a familiar smell and i realise now it smells like Lush's Charity Pot. Its a light moisturiser, i wouldn't say it helps with very dry skin, but it does make skin soft. The smell isn't great - if it was the same …Read more

It's too watery and doesn't really moisturise dry skin well, which it was supposed to do.. The price was alright but after using it, the price seems too high for this product.

I first used this about nine years ago and loved it. It smelled so delicious that I used it up faster than normal because I couldn't get enough of the fragrance. But when I recently bought a bottle I noticed the fragrance is different. It's more artificial and stronger. It's definitely not as nice as it used to be. I ended up throwing away the new bottle because I couldn't …Read more

This is certainly mousturizing and feels great, but wow, the smell. It's strong and cloying and smells nothing like the pleasant choco scent of other cocoa butter products or even The Body Shop's other cocoa butter products (I own the body butter). Maybe because it's concentrated and natural unlike Palmer's, etc.? I have gotten used to the smell and put it on every night all …Read more
