I keep trying products from The Body Shop and keep ending up disappointed.

Maybe I tried a "bad" bottle, but the cocoa butter lotion I tried was
2)smelled HORRIBLE - like rancid oil and cheap perfume.

It was so bad it made me sick and dizzy. I went to the Bath & Body Works across the mall to wash my hands. It was really disgusting.

I've tried several products from TBS now - Coconut Body Butter, Brazil Nut Body Butter, Cocoa Butter Body Butter, Shea Body Butter, and Cocoa Butter Lotion. All were disappointing. None moisturzed as well as Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lotion, Cetaphil Lotion, or Aveeno Creamy Oil. They were all over-priced and over-hyped(IMO).

Would not repurchase.

Officially giving up on TBS. Please kick me if I go there and buy something again on a whim.
