Review: Body Shop Coconut Body Scrub

Body Shop, Body, Coconut, Scrub, Review, Blog, Sweet, Good, Shower, Bath, Hello Loveys!
 
Its getting colder, so I feel it could be time to put the heating on! My dressing gown is ready and my snug winter slippers are on my feet. I got to say I don't like the cold weather, but I am pretty excited for Christmas this year with the family, so have started Christmas shopping, well I have nearly finished! Insane I know!

Todays post is a review of the Body Shop Coconut Body Scrub. I purchased the shea butter version a while ago and used it up pretty quickly as it was a favourite of mine, so I needed a new scrub and instead of the shea butter I decided to chose the coconut version as love the coconut body butter!
 
The scrub appeared to be creamy and scrumptious in the pot, but it did disappoint as it didn't smell as good as the body butter and did not make me feel like my body had been scrubbed. I used this in the shower and found you needed quite a bit to feel like your body was being exfoliated, then rinsing the scrub off was a nightmare as the coconut flakes would remain on my body! The scrub is creamy in formula and added moisture to the skin which was a good factor but overall the scrub did not do what I expected, think I will definitely return to my favourite shea butter scrub from Body Shop in the future and stick to the coconut body butter rather then the scrub version.
 
Have you tired this and found the same? Or do you have a different favourite scrub?
