Review:

Truth be told, I didn't go into my Bath and Body Works stores to buy any of the new Coco Shea Collection because I didn't think it was really something I needed, wanted or even wanted to try.  When I entered the mall from the side door I could immediately smell the Bath and Body Works store from there and the scent filling the air was Watermelon Lemonade.  That, was a perfect companion to these new Cucumber, Coconut and Honey Scents and that drew me in for a closer look. 

There were three different fragrance choices but within each fragrance there were a few different product form choices and that made it interesting for me to want to try them.

I rolled up my sleeves and made my way over to the honey table first.

I guess it was because they designed the Coco Shea Shower Jelly jar to look like a little jar of honey, I had to try that first. I popped off the top carefully not sure what to expect and there is a clear plastic sanitary sleeve and under it was what I can only say at first glance looked like honey scented/colored gelatin. And I say gelatin like because that is how it moved in the jar, as one unit of product and tiny little cubes when separated from it.

 

I grabbed a little white spatula and when I scooped it out it was smooth but still gelatin-like and I tried not to drop it as I made my way to the sink. A bit of water added to it and I knew I had something pretty interesting here.  The suds were smooth and felt good on my winter-worn hands even without a shower scrubby. And the product rinsed clean off of my hands and they were super, super smooth and lightly scented afterward. 

For me it was a true scent of honey...natural, but not strong and fake smelling.  I don't want to walk around smelling like a jar of food product and it was nothing like that.  More of a spa-like feel fragrance that slowly dissipates. 

Walking back to the table where there were only three or four bottles available I proceeded to toss one into my blue shopping bag to try it better at home.

What would have been great (but would have added to the price of course ) would have been a honey beehive kind of spoon accessory to get the product cleanly out of the jar. {I am all about the accessories of things} But a clean white plastic spoon worked perfectly for my test at home and will be how I get it out for a shower.

 

 And as you can see in the photos, the spoon pierced the product and slowly fell off of it like honey back into the jar. 

 

A bit of water added to the few drops of product on my hands and you can see the kind of suds it was making again, without a shower scrubby.  I can only imagine the bubbles with one.

 

After rinsing cleanly off, my hands feel so soft and lightly scented.

Would I recommend this?  Yes, I would say grab a jar (or two) and try it for yourself as a luxury type of product.  We have so many shower gels and body washes that have become part of our every day body care maintenance so breaking them up with a different kind of product every now and again is a well deserved break of the bath routine.

After using this, the Coco Shea Honey Seriously Soft Body Lotion was next on my list.
