The Body Shop Coconut Shower Cream Review
Monday, 14 July 2014
When I first received this from the Body Shop, I knew I was going to like it. Coconuts? Cream? Right up my alley!
"A rich and creamy body wash with Community Trade organic, pure cold-pressed virgin coconut oil. Lathers up to leave skin feeling clean, soft and deliciously fragranced with the tropical scent of coconut.
The shower cream comes in a simple plastic container which is actually quite stiff making it a bit harder (for my weak hands) to squeeze out the product. I love that you can see all the creamy coconut goodness inside!
The cream smells richly of coconut and I absolutely love coconut scented anything. When I went on a holiday to Thailand I drank a coconut every day, sometimes multiple, without fail- that's how much I love it! It's rich but still slightly runny which allows it to glide over your skin easily. It contains coconut oil, but the texture is not oily, just creamy and washes off easily. I'm not sure whether I received a different batch to the one advertised on the site, but mine does not lather at all, not even when used with a loofah. I personally don't mind this because it feels more moisturising on my skin, but it's quite misleading when products do the opposite of their claims!
I like to apply the cream after I put on my hair conditioner which allows it to sit on my skin for a few minutes, allowing my dry skin to drink it in. This also allows me to indulge in the scent which sadly disappears after I wash it off.
Apologies for the lighting difference- the sun couldn't make up his mind!
The cream is actually not as moisturising as I was hoping it would be and I would describe it is as a 7/10 hydrating level. That being said, it provides heaps more moisture than the Strawberry Body Polish, plus has a coconut scent so I do prefer this one!
Bottom line: if you like coconuts and creamy, non-lather formulas, try this one out! It costs $12.95 at any Body Shop- find it online here.
