Skin type: Dry and Sensitive.
I have been facing extreme cold winters here where the temperatures dropped to 10 Degrees below the normal temperature. With extremely dry conditions wreaking havoc on skin, I had to get a couple of rich and emollient body and face skin care product to combat the dryness. So, I will be sharing my views on one of the body butter from Boots skincare in the variant Coconut.
Price and Quantity: £6.00 for 200 ml.
Our Extracts range has been developed to make a difference. This nourishing body butter contains coconut oil derived from the cocos Nucifera nut.

My Experience with Boots Extracts Coconut Body Butter:
The Boots Extracts Coconut Body Butter comes in a regular tub packaging which is transparent with details printed on the lid and bottom of the tub. I have not travelled with this item but it’s not a great travel-friendly item.
I have used body butter over a couple of years from varied brands such as The Body Shop, Bath and Body Works, Victoria’s Secret etc. I have liked using body butter mostly as I have extremely dry skin that gets aggravated due to cold weather; so, I bought this one. There are a couple of variants which include vanilla, mango and a few more and I got the coconut one.
The smell is pretty mild and it won’t come in the way or modify the way your favourite fragrance smells. The body butter itself is very creamy but not flowy and it melts once applied on the skin. It does take a few minutes to get fully absorbed. I have noticed that when I use sugar scrubs, this body butter works amazingly and sinks in. I would say, it’s very similar to The Body Shop butter but, at half the price, the emollients moisturise the skin till I have my next shower.
The coconut smell is fresh and doesn’t smell synthetic or artificial. The brand does say it’s organic and in fact, it has almond oil which is well known for its moisturising properties. I am enjoying every bit of this body butter from the smell to the easily spreadable texture and moisturising properties. I have already used half of the tub. I would be definitely getting more of these. The mango body butter is next on my buy list.
Pros of Boots Extracts Coconut Body Butter:
- Organic extracts.
- Pleasant smell.
- Very moisturising.
- Has almond oil.
Cons of Boots Extracts Coconut Body Butter:
- Not easily available in Indian market.
- A couple of chemical ingredients.
IMBB Rating: 4/5
Will I Recommend/Repurchase Boots Extracts Coconut Body Butter?
Yes, I will! I am myself going to buy more of these in different variants as soon as I am finishing this. This is a good alternative for The Body Shop body butter and is very similar to that one.
