The Body Shop Coconut Hand Cream + Lip Butter Review

Hello!! This might be hard to believe, but I have never used or purchased anything from The Body Shop. It's always a brand that I have heard about, but never thought to use or get for myself. For Christmas I got a little gift set of the Coconut Hand Cream and Lip Butter. I was thrilled since I've never used any of their products before! So today I'm going to share my thoughts on these two items and do a review!

I'm unsure about the price of these together as a gift set, but the hand cream (travel size) is $6, and the lip butter is also $6. On the website they have a deal thats 2 for $10 on travel sizes, but I do not know if it's the same in stores. 

About the Hand Cream

From the Body Shop's Website
This tropical Coconut daily hand cream helps soften and protect hands with light, nutty moisture. The instantly absorbing formula is ideal for on-the-go hydration.
  • Non-greasy moisture
  • Wonderfully light gel-cream formula
  • Absorbs instantly
About the Lip Butter 
From the Body Shop's Website
This buttery lip moisturizer melts onto the lips for instant hydration. It contains organic virgin coconut oil
  • Instant hydration
  • Buttery texture
  • Leaves lips feeling soft and smooth
My Thoughts
-I actually really like both of these. The scent is nice, and the formula of them is good. 
-I agree with the description of the hand cream. It's not greasy at all, and its super moisturizing. The formula is a 'light gel-cream', which is unlike anything I've used before. It's really nice and I think it feels more cream-like than gel. I would definitely repurchase this hand cream. 
-The lip butter feels exactly like the name says- butter. At first I couldn't figure out why it felt so different than a regular lip balm and it was bothering the heck out of me. Then I read that it was called 'lip butter' and it clicked. It seriously feels like your putting butter on your lips LOL.
-I don't find the lip butter as moisturizing as some of my other ones, but it still works good if I have nothing else to use. This isn't soem thing I would repurchase. 
-I like to keep these two in my purse and they are great for when I need them on the go.
-These are super affordable too! I was actually surprised when I looked up the price and saw how cheap they were. 
-I feel like now I'm going to be addicted and want to try a bunch of stuff from the Body Shop!!

Have you tried out these before? And let me know what your favorite Body Shop products are in the comments!

  3. The lip butter would drive me absolutely nut so I'll never purchase it. Give my my lip moisturizer in a lipstick bullet form or my mind can't comprehend. LOL!

  6. I recently tried one of TBS hand creams. I didn't think I'd like it but I picked it up anyway since it was half off from their Christmas collection and I actually ended up loving it! I probably wouldn't buy it full price, but it's nice that TBS always has sales!
