Packaging:

This is how the product looks like, well, the front part:



Back part containing all the info which I've already listed under additional info. So, no need to strain your eyes to read it here. Just scroll up and read it there. :)



Just wanted to show you guys the cap/opening of the lotion.



As you can see, I just press the "press here" part, and the lotion just squirt out by itself. 
WARNING: Lotion is quite runny!



Texture:


Didn't wanna waste excessive lotion so here's a tiny bit. Might not look it but it's really runny. It's not the creamy type, it's the really runny type. Have you guys ever used Fruit of the Earth's cocoa butter lotion? The texture is exactly the same.

in case you were wondering what I'm talking about, the Fruit of the Earth's packaging looks like this:


Scent:

To be honest, the best smelling cocoa butter lotion would definitely be from Palmer & cococare which I did a review on here. Can't decide. This one, on the other hand, not so cocoa butter-ish. More like coconut oil with a hint of cocoa butter smell. 

My Experience:

I tried this as a hand lotion, it doesn't feel moisturising enough as a hand lotion actually. I mean, no sticky feeling which is good but your hands will feel dry very soon after and I'm not even talking about hours later.
As a body lotion though, this is quite good. Nuff said. 

Pros:

Cheap
Not sticky
BIG size (probably lasts really long)

Cons:

not moisturising enough as a hand lotion
not cocoa butter-ish enough scent

Will I repurchase?:

Yes, why not? With that price & that size, I would continue to purchase it as a body lotion.

Conclusion:

Very cheap and super generous with the amount. Great to use as a body lotion. Definitely pleasant smelling for those who don't fancy strong smelling products. 



You can find this product here. Saved you the trouble from scrolling up to see where to buy this. 


Note: If you are new to iHerb, do use the code KDB598 for USD10 off your first purchase. I can't stress enough that this code can only be used once & only during your first purchase. So, use it wisely.
