Coconut Body Butter Reason for purchase:
1. Getting back from holiday I noticed that my skin quickly began to get dry back in the good old British weather and I wanted to keep my tan aslong as possible, it seems as soon as I stop using sun tan lotion my skin looses moisture even though I don't usually use moisturiser as a rule.
2.It was 89p in Home Bargains and the cheapest moisturiser was £2.99.
and 3. It smells like Malibu my holiday drink of choice lol.
It comes in a plastic circle tub with screw on lid which contains 22oml of the body butter it has an expiry date printed on it for 2013 instead of the usual 12m through out date so it lasts a long time. It is recommended for normal to dry skin and can be applied all over your body although you should be careful around your eyes because it will sting if it gets in there you have been warned.
On opening the pot there is no seal put mine was smoothed over so it didn't look like anyone elses grubby little fingers had been testing but it might an idea to open it if you buy on just to check. The body butter itself is white and quite thick and it has a hint of coconut to it. To use you only need a small amount and the butter rubs in really well and absorbs into the skin. Once the butter has melted into my skin it feels really soft and smooth well worth the 89p and leaves my skin with a remider of the sun and malibu of course!
I give this body butter 5 stars
I am a sucker for all skincase products that smell good, whether they are cheap or not. I have drawers and boxes full of body butters and lotions of various scents. A few body butters I've been using recently are the Dermalogics range.
Dermalogics Body Butter can be bought in Poundland for of course just £1. There are a few scents in the range but the ones I have used are Coconut, Brown Sugar and Fig and also Mango.
No matter the scent of the body butter they all come in a 220ml round plastic tub. The same size tub probably costs about £8 plus in the likes of Body Shop and in my opinion these smell just as good and work just the same for my body.
The Coconut Body Butter comes in a white tub with a picture of a broken coconut on the top of the lid. It clearly tells us it is Dermalogics Body Butter and that it is the Coconut version, in case you didn't guess from the picture. The lid then goes on to tell us that this body butter is for dry, chapped or sunburned skin and that you can apply it anywhere to help nourish skin giving it a radiant glow. Opening the tub your nose is met instantly by a sweet and quite a strong coconut scent. A very fresh and delicious scent, more so if you actually like the smell of coconut. The body butter itself is pure white in colour and feels quite thick, yet surprisingly not greasy at first touch. Despite it's thickness it absorbs into my skin quickly and smoothly and the lovely coconut scent lingers on my skin. It certainly leaves my skin feeling smooth and it doesn't irritate any of my dry skin in fact it seems to leave it feeling soft and healthy. I personally don't find it provides my skin with a 'radiant glow' but to be perfectly honest I don't find any body butter gives my skin a radiant glow so this isn't a downpoint for this body butter in my opinion. For just £1 these are definitely worth a try.
The other two I use are again thick body butters, with no greasyness to them which carry some lovely scents. The brown sugar and fig smells sweet yet fruity and the mango version smells gorgeous extremely fruity and exactly like mango.
I love beauty bargains , and Im always willing to try out the cheapest beauty products I can find to compare them to leading brands . I love discovering quality beauty products , whether it be makeup , skincare , bodycare or fragrance particulary if they dont they break the bank .
Well being a poundland lover ,one saturday afternoon I was browsing the Poundland cosmetics aisle when I stumbled across the Dermalogics Coconut Body Butter . I am a bit obsessive with body butter and have always used BodyShop body butters , prior to my little Poundland discovery.
Wow Wow Wow ....This body butter costs £1.00 which means you can buy approx 10 of these for the price of one BodyShop Body Butter . When you twist the tub open it is a strange orangey /yellow colour but hey who cares it really moisturises the skin well , and smells really coconutty . Its quite thick and therefore you dont need to use a massive amount upon application .
What I love most about this product is that the packaging states that the butter helps promote a radiant glow ...And honestly it does. I was quite shocked that a body butter costing £1.00 could actually be any good , but my legs in particular looked fabulous and felt soft and silky .
I would reccomend this to anyone out there , It is equally as good as BodyShop body butter and is much cheaper
Dermalogics is produced by a comapny called Harlow and Pierre.
This is the Dermalogics Coconut Body Butter. It is suited for normal to dry skin and is designed to give skin a radiant glow. Dermalogics do not test their products on animals.
The body butter comes in a pretty plain white tub which is quite similar to that of Body Shop Body Butters. The lid is a twist off lid and the pot is quite deep.
The lid has a sticker covering almost the full surface of it. The sticker has an delightful coconut image background. The Dermalogics logo and product name and description is also on the sticker.
There is also a sticker on the base with the ingredients and a comments advising that you should avoid contact with your eyes.
*The Body Butter*
The body butter is a bright and pure white butter which is of medium consistency. It isn't runny that it will run out the tub though isn't thick that it is difficult to scoop out the tub. The coconut scent is quite strong and sweet.
To use the body butter, simply scoop some onto your hand and massage into skin until absorbed. This can be used after a bath/shower or on normal dry skin.
*Availability and Price*
The butter comes in a 220ml plastic tub. I bought mine from B&Ms for 99p however I have seen this in Poundland and Iceland. I am pretty sure I spotted it in Home Bargains for 49p!
After some bad experiences with Body Shop butters in the past, I steered clear of them for years until Soap and Glory caught my eye and I have been hooked ever since. I spotted this Dermalogics one a few months back but didn't buy it til last month.
I quite like coconut scents and this was no exception though I would say it was a tad overpowering at first. The tub is basic but nice enough. I quite like the consistency of the cream, not too thick and not runny whatsoever. One thing that did shock me though is that the butter felt a bit warm and not cooling like others. I think this would be best put in the fridge for a cooling butter like it should be!
The butter was easy to scoop up and it felt soft and smooth to the touch. On hitting the skin, the butter takes a wee while to massage in but when it does, it doesn't leave an oily texture like other butters do. My skin felt smooth and supple and the coconut left a nice aroma.
I used this on my arms and paid particular attention to my elbows are they are rather dry. I have very sensitive skin and did not experience any soreness or redness with this body butter.
After a few hours, my skin still had a nice smoothness and the coconut scent was still evident though no where near as strong as it was on applying. I did notice that the butter did not keep my skin as moisturised for as long as my Soap and Glory butter does but it does a pretty good job.
For 99p you cannot really complain as this is a bargain! You do only need a small about for instant moisturisation and softness and your skin is left delicately fragranced with sweet coconuts.
Try this out...thanks for reading x
I love body products with lovely scents to them. I like them even more when they fall comfortably within my very small budget - so when I saw Dermalogics Coconut Body Butter in my local pound shop (I'm pretty sure you can guess the price!) I decided to slip a pot into my basket - after all, at that price if it turned out to be rubbish, it wasn't going to be a big loss .
This comes in a 220ml white plastic tub, and the lid has a picture of coconuts on.. The packaging also gives a list of ingredients, and tells me this product is for use on dry, chapped, or sunburnt skin .
Well, I don't have sunburn, but I do have extremely dry elbows and knees, so this seemed like the perfect product . Opening it up I got an immediate whack I the face from the strong coconut scent - it was lovely, very summery and tropical. The cream itself is white and very thick - and it does take rather a while to apply as it doesn't blend in very quickly. As it warms up when you apply it, the scent gets even stronger, it's lovely .
It did make my skin feel a little sticky for a while, which I didn't really like as I wanted to go to sleep without sticking to the sheets .
A couple of days later, I decided to apply it again, this time immediately after a hot bath - I figured my skin being refreshed and clean might help it to absorb better - and it did absorb slightly faster, although I still felt pretty sticky for a while .
I've stopped using this as a body butter now, as although I did feel moisturised after using this, and my skin , particularly in dry areas, was much softer, the stickiness after using this started to annoy me . I have been using it as a foot moituriser last thing at night, and slipping socks on over it, and it has left my feet very soft.
In conclusion , this product does moisturise well but sadly does not absorb easily and leaves a a sticky residue on the skin . It does smell lovely, and is very cheap, but I'd rather pay a little more for something that was more convenient to use . Not recommended unless your budget is really tight .
There are three reasons why I was drawn to this body butter when I saw it recently
1) It states it's a thick, intensive moisturiser
2)It's smells of coconut
3) It only cost £1!
Now money isn't the most important factor here (who are we kidding; we all love a bargain!)- if something promises to be the elixer of youth and it's proven to work then I will throw caution to the wind and buy and try it (presumbing the funds are available!).
So what's it like?~
I'll get the packaging out of the way first..
The butter comes in a 220ml, round flat tub. The colour is mainly white with a picture of two halves of coconut on the top of the screw, top lid and has the relevent writing on the front and the list of ingredients on the back. The full title is 'Dermalogics V10 Natural Tech Body Butter Coconut' and is made by Harper & Pires.
So it promises a lot- "For dry, chapped or sunburned skin. Apply to help nourish the skin giving it a radiant glow"- but does it live up to it?
Well on opening the lid and removing the plastic cover you are greeted with an exotic coconut smell..so far so good.
The body butter is very rich looking but the texture has a waxy feel to it which is okay if it does the job so I didn't write it off just yet!
On rubbing the butter in to my leg it took a long time for it to finally absorb into the area and once it had I found the skin felt tacky, tight and not too moisturised. All respect due to it the smell did linger for a few hours so that's one point in it's favour.
I have not given up with it though, however it has been relegated to mainly my feet as it does seem to make an ideal foot moisturiser so all is not lost!
This is okay, and does soften the skin a little but didn't have the effect I was hoping for..but at the end of the day for £1 you get what you pay for I suppose.
Seen this since in the shops in mango and cocoa butter, but will leave for someone else to try I think to see if it is the same quality as the coconut!
Will give it 3 stars for the smell and the fact it's okay when used on my feet.
I love the smell of coconut. There is just something about it that reminds me of holidays, summer and the exotic and I find it incredibly soothing. I was browsing around my local Poundland when I saw this tub of Dermalogics Coconut Body Butter and instantly was drawn to it. Opening one up for a sniff convinced me to pop it in my basket, it did indeed smell delicious.
Dermalogics Coconut Body Butter comes in a 220ml squat plastic tub. The lid tells me it contains 'V10 natural tech' with a hint of Coconut and is recommended for dry, chapped or sunburned skin. There's very little information on the back, other than an ingredients list, advice about not applying around the eyes, a label indicating it has a shelf life of 6 months once open and the manufacturers website, Harper&Pires. Further investigation into this manufacturer reveals they are a large supplier to the health industry, have a popular range of anti-wrinkle formulas which also contain 'V10' and claim that they are absolutely against animal testing, sourcing their products from 'Existing natural or synthetic ingredients compounds and substances'.
Opening the tub you can immediately smell the coconut and it is extremely scrumptious! The cream is very thick and white in appearance, almost like sudocreme in fact.
The first time I used it was after a bath, before going to bed. And I have to say this is probably the best time to use it. The cream is very thick and waxy feeling, it took quite a lot of massaging to get it to completely blend in and stained my nightwear white where it touched, again much the same way as sudocreme would, although this did come out in the wash. It makes your skin feel very tacky and takes quite a while to sink in, so it is definitely not one to use first thing on a morning, when your in a rush for work! It did make my skin feel nice and supple for a while, but I wasn't overwhelmed by it's moisturising properties.
While I wasn't particularly impressed with it as an everyday body butter or moisturiser, I couldn't help but think how great it would be cold, on tight and hot sun burnt shoulders (which indeed is what it states on the tub). I imagined it would be like cooling yourself down with Bounty ice cream...yum! I wondered about putting it in the fridge for such a purpose?
Well, unfortunately we haven't had the weather yet for me to put this to the test (or luckily as sun burn is bad for you!) , but for the purpose of this review (see how thorough I am?) I decided to bung it in the fridge for a couple of hours and see what happens. The result was, quite surprisingly, that the cream had softened into a far better consistency. Gone was the waxy feel to it, and when rubbing it into my arm, was absorbed much easier.
It was cool and refreshing, and I'd imagine very soothing to burnt skin.
As I bought it in Poundland for, you guessed it, £1, and it was an unknown to me brand, I wasn't expecting any miracles from this, I was purely tempted by the gorgeous coconut smell. And on first use, I was right. This isn't a body butter to slap on regularly and reap beautifully moisturised skin from. However after my little experiment today, I do think this is a handy little pot to have through the summer or to take on holiday. I do think that putting it in the fridge for an hour or so improves the consistency, and also can not think of anything more pleasant to soothe sunburned skin. While the coconut smell is very strong, even I couldn't stand it regularly as it's too over powering if you use it a lot, I think as an indulgent little after sun cream it would be a treat. You would need to put this on at night as it's so thick, you wouldn't be able to get dressed straight away after applying it.
This Body Butter is also available at Wilkinsons for a similar price.
I'm going to rate this 4 stars, because it does claim to be for sun burnt skin, and I definitely will use it, and recommend it for this purpose.
