Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Body Butter

I bought this, beloved readers, because of it’s ingredient quality, and I wasn’t disappointed.

Better still, I had already enjoyed other products from this line, so I decided to try everything. (Flawless logic, I know.)

I also purchased it because of this:

  • Vitamin E to protect skin cells from free radical damage
  • No parabens, phthalates, paraffin, gluten, propylene glycol, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance, PABA, synthetic color, DEA or sulfates
  • Cruelty free, no animal testing
  • Certified organic ingredients

My Experience

You may be curious about the firming and toning claims. I didn’t experience that benefit, but it deeply moisturized and calmed my skin as promised. I adore body butters, and this one absolutely deserves the label.

  • Melts into skin
  • Softens
  • Smoothes
  • Plumps
  • Firms
  • Custard/Cake frosting like texture
  • $10
  • Available at your local drugstore or Ulta


It has a light, pleasant scent which lingers for a few hours after application. There is a definite coconut note. I’m not a fan of creamy/fruity scents–but, I enjoyed this one.

Even better–it lasts quite a while! Using (ginormous) globs daily, I enjoyed about two months worth of uses out of this. It’s easy to burn through body butter, if you love it as much as I do, so this was a fantastic surprise.

  • Flip-top lids (Munches manis shamelessly)
  • Tube-packaging (The last 1/3 of product is difficult to access)

That’s it. (Shocking, I know.)


This body butter can nourish, heal, and smooth your roughest skin with ease. A standout product of this line.
