I Love...

I Love...Coconut & Cream Nourishing Body Butter, £1.99, Superdrug

"Escape to paradise; an exotic explosion as my tropical cocktail of sweet
 coconut and velvety cream aromas leave you drifting away to your very
 own idyllic beach hideaway!"

I had never heard of the brand I Love... until I found this baby in my Christmas stocking. I have bored you all to death on numerous past occasions with the fact that coconut is one of my favourite scents and when coupled with cream I was guessing that this couldn't smell anything other than divine. I was wrong, it smells even better! Kind of a creamy coconut meets cookie dough meets vanilla vibe going on, I wish blogger had a scratch and sniff function because I would love you all to smell this!

The cream itself is lovely and rich and absorbs easily into the skin without leaving a greasy film, the scent lingers lightly on the skin and is not overpowering. With a combination of coconut oil and shea butter my skin felt well hydrated and lovely and soft after use.

The pot contains 200ml of moisturiser and due to the thickness of the cream I can see it lasting a while. When researching for this post I discovered it only costs £1.99 which is a bit of a bargain in my eyes and the brand is sold at Superdrug as well as selected supermarkets. This cream makes a fantastic budget body butter and I am really enjoying using it at the moment!


  1. Thank you for the recommendation. I will certainly try this out. Coconut is my favourite body scent of all, with a close second being Palmers!

  2. I'm with you on Palmers, it smells amazing!

  3. I love coconut creams and serums. My skin is sooo dry and I often go with 'the thicker the moisturiser the better' so this sounds really good! Currently trying to get rid of my Nivea shea butter stuff then I might try something like this, or actually I may just buy this!!

  4. It's a nice thick cream, my skin is so dry at the moment too! :o)
