Reviews For Fair Trade Coconut Body Lotion

Amazing lotion, this will be a monthly reorder...no doubt!
- Tabitha Helms
Light and Gentle
I have very sensitive skin. For years I stuck to unscented lotions until I discovered my skin is not irritated by coconut. Finally, I can use lotion with a scent that doesn't leave me with a rash! This particular lotion is very light and my skin soaks it right up. It's even gentle enough to use in my armpits after I shave! This brand itself is amazing; I use their cleanser as well.
- Rosie Arnold
Love this stuff!
I live in Florida, so I wanted a lotion that was effective, but not super heavy. This is ultra-moisturizing, but not greasy at all. It soaks in quickly, and the coconut scent is subtle. Some people commented that it doesn't smell like coconut, but I disagree. It absolutely has a coconut smell, but it's natural and light, which in my book is a good thing. The value for what you pay is huge, and one bottle will last a long time!
I'm really loving this brand. This lotion is rich and creamy coconut. The large size bottle will last a LONG time and is half the price that I would pay at my local health store. Thanks!
Like a lot. Good price, rubs in easily, moisturizers without being heavy or sticky. But I don't use when I'll be in enclosed space with others. Smell is heavy and unpleasant even though it is not suppose to be.
- Bridget Booth
Love this body lotion! Smells great, smoothes on easily, dries quickly without a sticky residue. A lighter lotion that works great for summer.
Not moisturizing enough
Good ingredients, good brand, but my skin just would not take to this lotion. It didn't absorb well and felt kind of watery. On the positive side: it was non-irritating to my sensitive skin and is practically unscented which is nice. Might just be better suited to skin types not as prone to dryness.
I'm not one for leaving reviews unless they truly deserve it. This is AMAZING................................... get it while you can and then get more. I could swim in this. I've tried everything and honestly by the time I step out of the bathroom its already time to put more on. This truly lasts all day. The bottle is HUGE and the price is unbeatable. Get this. GET IT NOW, STOCK UP ON IT!!!!!!
I like that this brand is fare trade so it is helping out people in other countries. Not for someone in a dry climate like me but I added some jojoba oil to it and it is just fine. I am going to try the cocoa butter kind from the same brand.
Perfect everyday lotion
This is a great, lightweight lotion for everyday. The scent is light, fresh, and doesn't interfere with my perfume. The texture is isn't tacky or greasy, and it absorbs easily. I love the size of the bottle for the price, and that the ingredients are simple and recognizable-no weirdness! I will say that in winter I also use a richer oil blend on my skin, as I need a bit more moisture than this provides, but otherwise this does the trick.
Nice daily lotion
I like this lotion and appreciate the healthy ingredients, but it's not thick or moisturizing enough for me. It's fairly thin so a little goes a long way, and while it does moisturize, it's definitely very light.
Great light lotion
I have dry skin, yet live in Florida. While I like the thicker lotions for the few cool weeks we get, I found once the heat and humidity returned they either never sank in or they coated my skin making the weather seem even hotter. Enter this "coconut" body lotion.
- This lotion is light. It spreads easily, you don't need much, and it does sink in and moisturizer, even with the humidity.
- It seems to moisturizer without leaving a thick film that can interfere with sweating and makes summer feel hotter than it already is.
- It does not smell like coconut. It is basically unscented, so I can use my choice of fragrances if I want to use one at all.
Basically, this is a great, light lotion. Perfect for all over summer moisturizing
Can't beat the price!
There is a lot of lotion here, very nice light texture, and even though it is not thick and creamy, you can apply multiple layers during the day.
Very clean ingredient list. Nice light scent.
Only The Best
This lotion is the best... My Mom & I keep ordering it over and over again..... sinks into the skin fast with NO greasy leftovers...
Not a fan.
I was hoping for a strong coconut smell and that is not what I got. Leaves skin hydrated but, not a fan of the smell. Good product!! Just wish it smelt more like coconut!!
not that great
It's very thin and you can tell it's mostly made of water. It's not very creamy. I would not buy again.
I don't notice a scent, the lotion actually absorbs really well and leaves my skin smooth, not sticky or greasy. Love the price too!
Great value considering how much you get in the bottle. Will probably not have to buy lotion for awhile! Nice, light, and pleasant smelling; the coconut scent is not overwhelming, but strong enough to get a whiff periodically. Will definitely buy lotion from this brand again.
Not as creamy as most conventional lotions I've used so it's quite light. Absorbs well, easy-to-use pump but not keen on the fragrance (though probably not a problem for most - I'm overly sensitive).
Love this lotion!
Nice smell, goes on smooth. Large bottle goes a long way. Great price!
Love! Very creamy and absorbs well. I have very sensitive skin and this lotion is very soothing.
I have very dry skin and eczema. Starting out I noticed a considerable smoothing of the skin. After about 1 week..... No red or cracked skin at all. It is not oily or greasy, dries very quick, and smells fantastic.
Love Allafia products!
This lotion smells great, is lightweight, and helps women and girls in developing countries.
This is a great everyday lotion. It smells great and has a great price!
I had my doubts at first after reading some of the comments about a weird scent, which yes as soon as I put it on I noticed a strange sort of coconut smell, it wasn't unpleasant just different. However the more I rubbed it in and let my body absorb it the more natural the scent became and in the end my skin was left fully nourished and silky smooth with the slightest hint of coconut which I love! A little bit does go a long way with this lotion, it seemed a little runny at first but it doesn't skimp on the hydration aspect, I use this every time I get out of the shower and my skin feels silky smooth all day!!
I started using this lotion prior to joining Thrive Market, but am thrilled that they sell it. The lotion is very emoillent and just lightly scented. I love the fact that the ingredients are all natural, and that the company gives back to the community. Great product at an even greater price!
Great lotion, strange scent
This is a great lotion and is very moisturizing; however, I couldn't get past the odor on this one. A very strong coconut (duh) which normally I'm not afraid of but there's something else in there that made me give this away to a friend.
It's lotion time
Winter is the worst time of the year for my skin, so I am always looking for lotions that actually fight dryness. I also love that when I use this even on my shaved legs I don't get a rash or any itching. I love this lotion, although some days I have to reapply often.

Keeps skin smooth
I love coconut products. This single ingredient has so many amazing health benefits that makes it stupid that not everyone uses it. This body lotion keeps my skin from getting dry in the winter. It fights cracks and more.
- Ramiro Teel
Weird odor !!
this lotion left a weird odor in my body and it does not feel smooth and does not hydrated the skin at all..
Not a fan
This lotion is mostly water, and you can tell. It does not feel smooth going on and does not keep your skin hydrated for very long. The scent is okay, but now I have this giant bottle of lotion that I never use.
One of my faves
I use coconut oil in the winter but it's too warming in the summer, so I use this lotion warm weather. Works great, and I really like that it has a short ingredient list and is non-toxic. I really like their body wash too.
Good moisturizer and right price but I cannot overcome the scent it leaves on my skin. I won't be repurchasing.
I was looking for a deeply hydrating lotion with no added fragrance and no mineral oil. This fits the bill perfectly. It absorbs quickly, feels moisturizing, and is not at all greasy. I will definitely be buying again.
Noursishing for the skin
Not greasy. No overbearing scent. Dries quickly. Keeps skin hydrated and soft. Makes a body beautiful. Recommend long-term continued use to realize the difference it makes to the feel of your skin.
I have several friends who rave about coconut oil, but it's a bit too strong-smelling for me. I found this in the store and tried the tester, and it actually had a very nice, somewhat lighter scent. It was also decently priced, so I decided to buy it. I tend to get terribly dry hands in cold weather and this lotion has kept them hydrated nicely so far. And nice smell and feel. A good buy.

Fair Trade Luxury
I first found this at Whole Foods a couple years ago and to be honest, I bought it because I am on a budget and it was the most lotion for the cheapest price i could find.
So with little expectation I buy the stuff, get it home and use it and I am IN LOVE! So rich, makes my skin feel so soft and smells yummy. Then I read about the company and the fair trade mission and WHAT?!?!? Yep, it is that amazing.
