The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter - Review

I have a bathroom filled with lotions and potions. Things to scrub me, rub me, smooth me, hydrate me and make me smell less human and more fruit like.

During pregnancy I tend to swap to something a little more gentle with a more relaxed smell. At the moment I am loving the Coconut Body Butter from The Body Shop Body Butter Range. It has a really light coconut fragrance and left my skin so soft and smooth.

 As I have been blessed with not only sensitive skin but I'm also prone to dry skin I am always a little sceptical of anything that says '24 hour' moisture. To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement and as a very swollen pregnant lady it was lovely to not have an itchy bump where the skin is stretching. Even Mr. M commented on how nice I smelt - as a man he never really notices new smells.

Miss Mojo is also blessed with the same skin gifts as myself so a post bath slathering happened.

Am happy to report back that we were both left with soft, smooth skin. The thickness of the butter worried me at first as I find they don't get absorbed quickly or you're left with a greasy finish. This one took about a minute post warm bath to soak in and I was able to get me and short stuff dressed without our clothes getting stuck or twisted.

Things to know:

Don't use it on your face - it's too creamy for the skin on your face. 
It contains Coconut, Brazil nut, Shea butter and Cocoa butter. 
The scent lasts for quite a while so no need to apply extra perfume/scent after
You might be tempted to eat it - don't.

After using the body butter I went to the website to check out the ratings it had been given and was not surprised to find that it is one of their best sellers. I will be buying more as soon as this tub runs out and I don't think it's going to last much longer!
