I've been using the Vaseline Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning range religiously for the past year - maybe even more than a year - but I decided to branch out and try something new!
I got the LUSH Coco Lotion, which is a body and hand cream. I was in a rush and basically got it because I read the word Coco and assumed it was similar to cocoa butter and bought it based on that.
Although I was mistaken, I wasn't disappointed but instead pleasantly surprised.
Firstly, if you're looking for a scented body lotion and have 'scent expectations' then this isn't the one for you - it's fragrance free.
But obviously everything smells like something! This Coco lotion smells light and natural; nothing distinct - just the mix of ingredients I'm guessing. I don't mind that it's fragrance free mainly because I'm getting into more natural products as well as natural organic scents - it also doesn't clash with my perfume which is nice!
What they say...
'Inspired by the bountiful blessings of the Caribbean, with fresh pineapple juice, extra virgin coconut oil, mandarin and rosemary infusion. No added perfume; smells brilliant all the same. Lavish lashing all over your hands and body for toned, brightened, smoother skin.
Other than all those luscious sounding ingredients, it also contains pimento berry, nutmeg, star anise, peanut oil, sesame oil, and organic pumpkin seed oil - sounds amazing right!
What I say...
✮ When I first opened the tub, just by looking at it, I expected it's consistency to be thick like body butter but it's actually very smooth and light weight.
✮ I've never tried a fragrance free lotion before and I actually like it because my perfume stands out and isn't mixed in with other scents. Even though it's fragrance free, as mentioned, there's a very light natural scent to it.
✮ It took about 5 minutes maximum to fully absorb into my skin and for hours after my skin felt uber soft and smooth. I used this after shaving my legs and it seriously made them feel so soft! Even though it's lightweight it's definitely moisturising.
✮ I really, really like the packaging! I love the simplicity of it - in general I really like LUSH packaging.
✮ Even though I'm not a vegetarian I like the fact that it's vegan friendly and I also like the natural ingredients used.
Would I buy this product again?
Yes - not immediately as I want to experiment with different lotions, but I would definitely repurchase this again in the future.
Would I recommend this product?
Yes - if you're looking for a lightweight, very moisturising lotion, that's scent free, contains natural ingredients and won't clash with your perfume then this is the lotion for you!
I got this LUSH Coco Lotion (225g) for €11.60.
