About This Brand

Started by street vendors in Harlem in 1991, Nubian Heritage rose from humble beginnings to bring culturally authentic healing traditions from ancient Nubia to the modern world. Nubian Heritage draws its inspiration from Ancient Nubia, which was once a center of cultural trade — a place where goods, ideas, and customs from across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean came together, influenced each other, and then spread across the world. The company brings new life to traditional healing practices, cultural wisdom and indigenous ingredients, resulting in ancient takes on modern solutions for skin and hair. Nubian Heritage continuously develops new products and remedies, and plans to create more in the future. Although, what will never change are how their products are made and the values they carry.

Reviews For Coconut & Papaya Body Lotion

Based on 23 Reviews

Pretty Good

I love the texture of this product, which is thick and moisturizing, but the smell is slightly off-putting. Smells great at first, but turns slightly fake the longer it's on.

- Caroline

Softens dry skin

This works well to soften dry skin. The fragrance is okay but smells a little strongly sweet. It does a good job, though on keeping my dry hands softened.

- Victoria


I love this product! I use it for my face and all over my body...
It is working! My skin (face) looks better than it EVER has!
I am seeing some softening of the wrinkles on my arms!
Thank you for a GREAT product and at a GREAT price!

- Suzanne

Overpowering Fragrance

I really wanted to love this product. It feels great on my skin and the effect lasted through the day. However, the scent is so strong that I couldn't imagine using it again. My daughter, who loves scented anything, found it to be overwhelming, too. I'm going to leave the cap off for a little while, to see if the scent diffuses a little.

- Sylvia

Everyone loves it <3

Everyone I gave it to love how soft and shiny their hands afterwards. I like how it feels. Definitely not regular lotion. <3

- Dana

Luscious body cream

This body lotion is super thick, hard to get out of the container sometimes. Well worth the effort though. I love how it goes on & doesn't leave your skin greasy, just beautifully moist. It has a soft pleasant odor as well. I will buy it again!!

- Treva


LOVE this lotion! Everything about it is great! I can't ever see myself buying another lotion.

- Elizabeth

The Bessstttttttt

This lotion is tremendously moisturizing, long lasting, smells good and leaves your skin super soft.

- Ashley


I love the smell and feel of this lotion though I consider it a cream. It is so think, I have to take the lid off to squeeze out a blob. I would much rather it come in a tub. I have no idea how I will get all of out of the bottle.

- Kim

Body Cream

Wow is soooo good

- Claudia

awesome product

This lotion is a great moisturizer and it smells delightful. After applying it early this morning after my shower to my entire body, I do not feel greasy in any way, and my skin feels really soft and smells of light and fragrant coconut.

- Dana


This product has such a wonderful scent it will make your day better.

- Kevin


Great lotion. Natural ingredients. THICK and difficult to get out of the squeeze bottle. Best price ever here on Thrive. Smells divine!

- Patricia

Moisturizing and Smells Amazing

This is my first time trying this lotion and it's amazing! It seems to be slightly thick than a lotion and more of a creme consistency which makes it ultra moisturizing. And the smell! The smell is almost addicting its so good! Will purchase again!

- Christine

Coconut & Papaya Body Lotion

Absolutely wonderful! I love this stuff! The scent is great but what it does for your skin is just amazing. This is an awesome product.

- Denise


just amazing

- Randolph

Wonderful Lotion

This is great stuff! The smell is delightful and it truly hydrates. My only criticism is that it is very hard to squeeze out the lotion if one has any challenge with strength in the hands. It would be better dispensed in a jar, in my opinion. Otherwise, great find!!

- Amari

Fruity & Smooth

I've been buying Nubian products for years because their ingredients are pure and I admire their business model. This rich body lotion smells subtly fruity but not sickly sweet and leaves my skin silky, absorbing quickly. I receive compliments regularly when I wear it. It's my favorite of all the Nubian body lotions.


Great lotion

Great hydrating and natural lotion! I live in the high desert and this lotion has helped my skin a lot and helps protect me from the elements. No more dry, sensitive skin!

- Virginia A

Best lotion I have ever used

I usually like to try different lotions, but this is my second time with this one. It is pretty thick and creamy, but works great on my dry, sensitive skin and keeps me feeling like I have just applied it until my next shower, which is every other day. If you plan on performing any activities that will make you sweaty, this lotion becomes very slick on your skin. I absolutely love the strong papaya smell, but am disappointed that it doesn't last all day. This will be the only lotion I will use for myself as well as my family. Bonus...all natural. Can't beat that!!

- Whitney

Not a fan of the scent

Lotion wise, this is a good moisturizer that also works well on problem skin, but as far as the smell, it's really strong on the papaya side and has hardly any coconut scent at all. I prefer more coconut and less papaya, so I may have to go and find a raw coconut lotion to satisfy me. The three stars is really based on the scent and not how well the lotion works, because it works pretty well.

- Timothy Reid

Great Hydration

I feel really hydrated using this lotion. My skin doesn't feel dry and I don't have any cracking or white elbows or knees. It is great since this time of year is when I usually get the worst of it. I really like how thick and smooth it feels going on, yet how light and airy it feels as it dries. This is great

- Sunshine L.

smells great.

This is a good lotion and smells great. I like the slightly sweet scent that comes from papaya and the slight coconut smell which lasts till I wash my hands. The lotion gets absorbed quickly and does not leave any residue behind and this is the main reason I like it because I hate sticky hands. If you are looking for a light but effective lotion, this is the right choice.
