Editor’s pick: The Body Shop Coconut Milk Body Lotion

Post image for Editor’s pick: The Body Shop Coconut Milk Body Lotion

When I read about Lucky beauty assistant Cat Marnell’s adoration for The Body Shop’s Coconut range (specifically, the Body Butter), I knew I had to get my hands on it. (Ref: this post, where I explained my fixation with beachy fragrance notes like Coppertone sunscreen, tropical flowers and obviously, coconut.)

Anyway, finally—as of last week, in fact—the Coconut collection is available in Canada. And now I’m obsessed with it.

It includes a scrub, soap, foaming bath, lip butter, hand wash, shower cream and the aforementioned Body Butter. But since I’ve never been a huge fan of the latter—I find them way too greasy—I was delighted that there’s also a lighter version, the Milk Body Lotion. What’s genius about it is that it’s thin enough to be dispensed through a spray pump, which makes the daily post-shower lotion application a LOT faster. But thanks to the high-quality organic virgin coconut oil it contains, the lotion is still super-hydrating.

That makes two new body lotion finds for me in one week—yikes! (I’ll have to create a rotation between this and Live Clean Baby’s version.)

Priced at $16. Available at The Body Shop stores across Canada, or order online at www.thebodyshop.ca.

I love that you mentioned Cat!! I was so close to doing the same thing. This milk-spray sounds awesome…we should find out if they do an oil, because I’d also be all over that.
