I was a loyal user of Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter until I came across this goody. Dessert Essence's Coconut Hand and Body Lotion is my latest coconut-product obsession. I ran out of body butter last week and decided to give this product a try. I was looking for a lotion that moisturize without the greasy feeling. I stop by a local Ulta and browse through their organic section and found this sitting on the counter.
The active ingredients caught my attention: organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, organic jojoba oil, and a hint of organic passion fruit. If you have some knowledge with essential oil you can see this is lotion has all the soothing ingredients you skin needs for hydration. The tube also state it fights free-radicals.
What it is formulated WITHOUT: Parabens, Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfates, Phthalates, Artificial Colors, Silicones, EDTA Glycol or Petroleum-based Ingredients, Phosphates, Animal Testing
In addition, it is vegetarian/vegan-friendly and certified organic! Despite all the good stuff listed on the bottle, the blissful coconut scent was the main reason I added this to my shopping cart.
After a week of use, I am very satisfied with this lotion. It's a little cheaper than Trader Joe's body butter and the scent is amazing. It sounds weird but I can't wait to shower and put this on every morning. If you love tropical coconut scent you will love this.
