Review- The Body Shop coconut body butter

Product: The Body Shop coconut body butter

Price: £4 for 50ml, £10 for 100ml

What they say: An intensive, creamy butter offering up to 24 hours moisturisation. It absorbs into the skin easily, helping to condition, soften and smooth the skin. Once you get over the indulgent tropical scent, slick this on and be transported all over again. Containing Community Trade shea and cocoa butter.



What I think: I think body butter describes it perfectly, its quite hard to scoop up but once I rub it between my hands to warm it up it melts and becomes a lot softer.


This is one of the thicker body butters from The Body Shop and is perfect for moisturizing dry skin. Its a little greasy as its so rich so I wouldn't use this as an everyday moisturizer unless you have very dry skin. I use this every couple of days after showering at night and always wake up with soft smooth skin. It also gives the skin a gorgeous sheen without looking greasy.

Like all the other body butters this one smells amazing and the scent lingers on your skin so you can still smell it hours later. It can be a little overpowering if used all over so I tend to only use this on my legs if I'm going out.

It is a little on the pricey side but you don't need to use much each time so the 200ml tub does lasts for a good few months.

Rating: 7/10

Would I repurchase: Yes, especially since The Body Shop have lowered their prices recently.

  7. I agree, these are fantastic for winter. One I LOVE is Brazil Nut, it smells heavenly! For summer I prefer lighter versions, with less heavy smells. I've tried Papaya and it's beautiful, too!
