I purchased Softsoap Body Butter Coconut Scrub because I was looking for a coconut scented body wash. I love the smell of coconut and this was just disappointing. I smelled it in the store and liked it but in the shower it was very light on coconut and more flowery and gave me a gross chemical taste in my mouth after I showered using it.
The bottle contains 15 fl. oz. of a creamy tan liquid that has dark specks in it. It is part of the Premium Collection of Softsoap body washes. The bottle is sculpted with a wider base and thinner middle making it easy to grasp in the shower. The top is rounded with a brown flip top cap. It is easy enough to grasp and open in the shower.
the liquid inside is thick. When you turn the bottle upside down you do not have to worry about it running out. It is thick enough that it needs a good squeeze to get it flowing. The body wash feels more like a cream than a soap and you really have to work with it to get it to lather.
Lather: In general I did not think it worked up to much of a lather and felt more like a cream than a soap. I felt like I had trouble rinsing it off my skin.
Scrub: The scrub portion was OK but really the product was so slippery that whatever scrub was in it was lost. It really did not perform at all as a scrub.
Scent: I know I am pretty picky about scents but this one was just really disappointing. I did not detect more than a hint of coconut. The scent was overwhelmingly strong and was sickeningly sweet and flowery. It left me with a chemical taste in my mouth.
Cleaning: When I use a body soap I like to be able to rinse it off and not feel a residue on my skin. Maybe since this is called body butter it is designed to leave something on your skin but I just do not feel I am clean if I can not rinse the product completely off my body. I felt like I needed to wash with soap after using this product.
Final thoughts and Rating
I was very disappointed with Softsoap Coconut Scrub and feel as though I wasted my money. I disliked the scent so much that I do not think I will finish the bottle. To make matters worse I found another half used bottle under the bathroom sink. I guess I had purchased it before and forgot. I will not make that mistake again.
