I keep this at work and use it throughout the day. Very moisturizing with leaving a greasy feeling. The smell is wonderful and I frequently get compliments on the smell from my co-workers.

I really like this lotion and it’s really moisturizing. It works great and isn’t greasy. The scent is a little strong, but it’s not bad.

Favorite lotion!

I love this lotion! It is so hydrating and leaves my skin feeling so great! It's a thicker lotion and spreads great and you don't need to re-apply multiple times!

This moisturizer is effective and the coconut scent is quite light and doesn't linger. You won't smell like old school Capri Sun or factor 4 tanning oil. It is fairly light, but still a medium/heavy duty body moisturizer. In a pinch, it doubles as a hair smoothing lotion and an oil cleanser. The price is about 40% lower than at drugstores and 50% lower than the retail site.

Great moisturizer

Love this product but the coconut, although pleasant, is not my favorite fragrance. Try the almond!!!

The best lotion ever!

This brand is one of the best especially for lotion, and I'm so glad I found it for a much cheaper price compared to the stores near me! I would definitely love if you all carried the mango one though, that one's my favorite!

All time favorite. I'd be lost without this!

Where do I begin. I don't particularly like coconut very much but the smell of this is soooooooo amazing! It is a very strong smell, so if you like to wear perfume this will clash with it. I dont need body spray or perfume when I use this lotion because the smell is so amazing and it lasts all day! My boyfriend is obsessed with the smell of this and always points out that I "smell so good". It is very thick and moisturizing, but not oily at all, which I love! It absorbs fast and keeps my skin soft. I never have dry skin anymore. I have been using this product since 2014 and despitw having tried many many other natural lotions, none of them compare to this one. Desert Essence coconut will always be my favorite go-to lotion, I am so glad Thrive carries it! I always get compliments, my skin is happy, my boyfriend is happy, my nose is happy. If you're hesitating to try it, just go for it, you won't regret it if you're looking for the same results that I got!
