My wonderful bestie treated me to some more Body Shop products for Christmas. After I was introduced to the heavenly Cranberry Joy line by her, I had high hopes for the Coconut Body Set I was gifted. Personally I'm not a fan of the taste of Coconut, so picking out the scent perhaps wouldn't be my first choice. Having said that I was open-minded and excited to give something a try that I wouldn't have usually picked up for myself.
My first instinct with this product was that it was going to resemble a really runny body lotion, and I guess to some extent that is exactly what this is. However I would definitely say that upon application it felt a more like an indulgent oil. Please don't panic at the word oil like I know I would if I was reading this. It's not greasy or sticky so you can push those stereotypes aside. It's simply quite pampering and surprising. I felt like I was using such an expensive and luxurious product when in real terms this is actually probably quite affordable! This is what we like - luxury feeling at high-street prices!
Needless to say, I came out the other end of my Body Milk experience smelling like a Bounty bar and feeling soft like a baby's bottom. Neither of these things I turn my nose up at. I always find it exciting when I discover a product I love which won't make me wince every time purchase it. I'd be happy to recommend this to anyone who's looking for a simple body moisturiser that doesn't take half an hour to sink in and makes your purse and skin smile.
