Most Helpful Positive Review Great product for rough, bumpy skin (keratosis pilaris)
I have keratosis pilaris (also called KP or chicken skin) on my upper arms. I have tried everything to get rid of it from drugstore moisturizers to dermatologist prescriptions. And, nothing has worked. The Body Shop Body Butter is by far the best moisturizer I have tried - even better than pure coconut oil. Once a week, I exfoliate my arms with Shea Moisture Argan Oil Body Scrub, and every night before bed I apply the Body Shop Coconut Body Butter. My arms looks great. The chicken skin effect is still there, but it is hardly noticeable. Plus, you can't beat the smell - the Body Butter smells like the most delicious coconut cream pie.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great in jar, not on skin
I'll start this out by saying I love coconut scents!! So when I saw this when I was checking out, it just tumbled into my cart all on its own ;)
The smell in the jar is great, and the reason why I bought it. It also does a great job at hydrating my skin that takes a beating from dealing with harsh chemicals at work. It may just be my body chemistry, but after I put this on my skin, it start to smell rancid! Like really sour and nasty. Not sure if everyone would have this problem, but try out a test patch before you buy a set of this.

I purchased this for the first time a few weeks ago. Was expecting a less greasy lotion for all over, have basically used this as a foot cream and as a leg lotion. It works in that department but it takes way longer to absorb then I expected.
Formula has changed. I would not buy this product again.
Jen from MI
I called The body shop myself to ask if the formula was changed. I was informed they had changed it. It's unfortunate because this body butter was the best I have ever used. The formula was literally as thick as butter and healed dry skin beautifully. It is now a consistency a little thicker than lotion. I would not buy this product again. If however, it was changed back to the original formula, I would continue to buy this product again.
Beachy Summer Vibe
Metalmaiden from USA
I have used The Body Shop Body Yogurts and I loved them. So I thought I'd try this as it was on sale. First off I loved the smell. Definitely coconut smell but its a sweet really light smell great for summer days. Next the packaging to me is awesome. I myself don't like pump lotions because a lot gets wasted. This is easy to get every bit out. And honestly to me the most important thing NO ANIMAL TESTING. In this day and age we should never use animals for testing. So yes it's another great buy from the Body Shop.
Mom loved it!!

Bought this as a birthday gift for my mom and she's been using it every day. Will definitely get her the jumbo size next time.
Great lotion, not so great smell
Elissa from MI
Maybe I'm smell blind but I didn't smell coconut whatsoever, just Shea butter with a hint of fake coconut scent. Disappointing scent but great lotion.
Best stuff around
Anna from Oakdale, Ca.
I buy one every year, summer time vibes all year long....
Absolutely Love this Lotion
Alison from Kentucky
I usually use it after I get out of the shower, and it works great. You can feel your skin soak it in and feel moisturized. Even better it stays hat way all day!
I can really see and feel a difference in my skin!
I think this is an amazing product and it smells amazing as well, but I wish for the amount of lotion in the can that it wasn't quite as pricey. If I can catch it on sale it's not o bad though.
Ley from Phila, PA
Love how this makes my skin feel and smell!
StacieJ from Baton Rouge, LA
Really love this stuff. I'm 46 and I have noticed a visible difference on the tops of my hands the following day after use. I use it every day now on my arms and hands.
BusybusybusyCA from Los Angeles
I received a generous sample with a recent purchase and left it sitting around since I already have a much-loved body cream. With the recent frequent hand washing and self isolation, I had both dry hands and plenty of time on my hands to straighten out some clutter and there it was! Even though I'm just using this on my hands, wow. It has really alleviated the dryness in my hands, and it absorbed pretty quickly with minimal greasiness. Maybe because my hands were that dry but it really fixed the dryness and chapped skin. And it made my nails look amazingly healthy. I'm here now to order a full size. I might use it on my feet too. Pretty amazing, happy that Ulta provides generously sized samples for test runs.
Best for dry skin!
Mom2two from Chicago
Had not purchased this for a few years. Purchased again as nothing seemed to be helping my dry skin. Works wonders. Love the smell!
Rinne from MA
Smells SO good like beachy sun tan lotion. My fave! And keeps my skin so soft.
It really is the best
Skincare obsessed from Oakland, CA
I have severely dried skin to the point where it itches and leaves me feeling uncomfortable and this is by far the best moisturizer i've used and I have used a lot. I am indifferent about the smell, it smells good but the actual product is amazing.
Wow I will never use anything else for my feet
Kvv27 from Vancouver, WA
I don't care about any of my lotions now besides this one. It's really helping keep my feet nice and moisturized. They would feel cracked before I started using this product. I also totally love the smell!
I LOVE LOVE THIS BUTTER
Poopsie from South Plainfield, NJ
I used another brand body butter for 10 years until it was discontinued. So when I was forced to search for something new I went to the body shop coconut butter. I fell in love!!!! With the scent the feel and the results!!! It's a butter not a lotion and it goes on like a butter. I am in love every time I slather this on. I can smell it all day, in a good way, not over powering. The moisture stays all day. I am thrilled an Ulta opened in my neighborhood and I don't have to go tct goes on sale quite a bit. So I stock up so I'm never without it. I also use the coconut shower cream. The more coconut the better! I also give as Christmas gifts.
My favorite lotion!
Aly from Aldie, VA
I've been using this body butter for years in various scents, and I absolutely love the formula! It's thick but also melts into the skin easily, leaving you hydrated and smelling awesome for the whole day! The coconut scent is my all time favorite, it smells like you're standing on a beach!
Lolly from Michigan
This product is amazing! It smells sooo good, but an easy light smell. Goes on smooth, and makes your skin glow. I absolutly love it, im going to buy the bigger size!!
Hate it when I run out. Love it, lasts all day!
Bin from Erie, pa
Everyday after shower. It lasts all day, a little slick at first but absorbs nicely.

I was expecting a more coconut smell & was very disappointed. I will continue shopping until I find a better body butter.

tt from Boston
I have used this body butter for years and love it! Especially great for dry winter skin. I use it all over after a shower. Before bed, I use it on my hands, elbows and feet (and then put on socks). The coconut scent is natural and lovely.
This is my all time favorite
Jupizoe from Michigan
Not tested on animals. Worth the price. This is the best lotion.
I would buy again !!
Shirl from Toledo OH
I use it twice a day and just move it, this was my first time buying this product and would definitely buy it again !
