Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Body Lotion

As you can see from the above photo, beloved readers, this lotion served me well. I’m not a huge fan of the scent of coconuts, but I loved what this lotion did for my skin.

My Experience

I like this brand, beloved readers, because their products don’t have:

Propylene Glycol
Mineral Oil
Synthetic Fragrance
Synthetic Color
Animal Testing

Zip. Zilch. Nada.

I became aware of it in 2011, when I went chemical-free in all my beauty regimens for a year. (I conducted a bit of an experiment.) I’m no longer 100% chemical-free in my beauty regimens, not by a long shot, but there are certain items of my beauty arsenal that must be predominantly natural in origin–mainly things that cover my entire body.

This is why I continue returning to this brand–that and the glorious quality of the products. This one is no exception, as you can see by its ingredients. (See below, they are lovely!)

  • Absorbs quickly
  • Non-greasy
  • Lightly perfumes skin

It does offer light moisture, whisking away dryness and leaving behind a pleasant fruity scent. (I type that as one who does not care for fruity scents.)

  • Runny texture

This didn’t drench my skin in moisture, which is why I didn’t repurchase this. It’s not as thick as I prefer a lotion to be, unfortunately. I adore a thick, luxurious lotion. That is more a matter of my personal preference, than anything else.

If you enjoy other products from this line, enjoy natural lotions, or want to try something less synthetic this is a great option!
