Review: The first impression on this moisturiser was how strong the coconut scent was. It was slightly off putting since I am not a fan of coconut. After using it a few times, the coconut scent "died" on me and the smell now reminds me of coconut flakes with a weird scent. Can't seem to put my finger on what this weird scent is. I would say it's more like a generic paste smell if that makes any sense? Hard to describe. It the same when you apply it to the skin. The coconut smell disappears and you're left with this pastey smell. It isn't long lasting whatsoever.

I personally do not like the texture of this. It is a solid, more pastey. When you run your fingers over it, it is smooth. I guess the warmth of the skin warms the solid to a slightly more liquid texture. However, you will require a a bit more pressure to get the product out to use. This is hard to rub into the skin and it doesn't sink in fast. It doesn't get absorbed easily and it leaves a sticky, oily feel on the skin. It's like there is a layer of this since it doesn't get absorbed easily. When rubbing the product in, it gets clumpy sometimes and you need to add more pressure to rub it in. While rubbing it in, I've noticed that it become flakey and requires more effort to rub in which I dislike. The next day, skin isn't soft, just normal. Maybe the product had transfered onto my clothing. Who knows?

The packaging and design is cheap but safe. For 200ml, this is priced at £5.99. For a handmade, organic and natural products, it is worth it but it is still a bit expensive for the overall feel of this product. I am not going to compare this to other body butters, mainly because of the texture as it wouldn't really be fair. I wouldn't really recommend this product.

You can get a free bath bomb or lip balm when they spend over £35 and get free delivery when you spend over £25.
