Naked Bodycare: Coco de Mer Body Butter.

Since discovering Naked Bodycare last year it's fairly safe to say I've become infatuated with the brand. I was perusing the shampoo aisle in Boots when I came across their volumising shampoo and conditioner. Always looking for products that volumise I picked them up & noticed that there was no parabens or petrochemicals in the product, it's 97% natural and they don't test on animals. That's it - I was sold!
Once I was back home I looked online at their website and saw the wide range of products that they do. The website is super cute with little facts about the ingredients they use and sweet little doodles representing the different product areas. I was hooked, I immediately wanted to try everything but lack of funds at the time stopped me from adding every single item to my basket. That turned out to be a blessing in disguise as the following week they had a MASSIVE 50% off discount code. i took that as a sign and picked up £80 worth of products for £40. Bargain! 
 These are some of the products I absolutely love! ♥
Now don't get me wrong, there are products in the range that don't work for me, the hairspray for example, but I honestly really do love the majority of the range.
One of my favourite products is the Coco de Mer body butter. They say

"Creamy coconut extract, enriching shea butter and passion flower oil veil your skin in an intoxicating scent, so you can be sure your skin feels caressed day and night."
I absolutely agree. As you can see it's quite a thick formula but it spreads and sinks in really nicely without leaving an oily film over the skin. I'd say I have normal skin, maybe a little dry at times on my legs and it works beautifully for me. I've got my mum to try this as she has much dryer skin that I do and she says that it moisturises really well and leaves her skin soft for hours. All good stuff!
 A little definitely goes a long way. I've had this pot for a long time and I still have a lot left. If you're not a fan of scents lingering on the skin then this probably isn't for you. I put some on my hand this morning and I can still smell it 7 hours later. I can't decide quite how to describe the scent other than it reminds me of summer. It's coconut based yet slightly floral, delicate and girly. I really like it.
Here are the ingredients:
 How cute is that little bunny rabbit doodle?!
The body butter retails at £4.99 for 300ml. You can buy online at nakedbodycare.co.uk & boots.com and in Boots stores.

For Valentines Day Naked are offering another 50% discount code. Valid until February 14th at nakedbodycare.co.uk just enter the code face09 at the checkout. This is definitely an excuse to drop some hints to a certain someone or to treat yourself to some new goodies.

Have you ever tried any Naked Bodycare products?

It's a shame that I feel the need to say that this review contains only my own honest opinions, but I do. I bought these products with my own money and would never do a review solely because I was being paid for it. There would be no point in that. I've written this purely because I love the products. ♥


  1. I have the starflower bodywash but I haven't tried it yet, after reading your review im looking forward to trying it :)

  2. I love love love the shampoo. Nothing else rivals it in making my hair feel so clean (naked shine shampoo I think)... I didn't realise they did so much other stuff!x

  3. Lovely, lovely, lovely. I've used the volumising shampoo and condition before and always thought it was great. I think it makes such a difference when a company spends a little time building their brand - Naked is so friendly and welcoming. I want to buy things purely based on the doodles! So sweet!

  4. Okay you make me want to buy loads of their products now! I think it's fantastic they don't use all the chemicals and don't test on animals like alot of brands.

  5. Oooh I must check these out, I'm a sucker for body butter

  6. so was the volumising shampoo good? i really need some volumising products at the moment
    thanks for the review! :)

  7. @Jen - exactly! it's such a small thing to spend a little time making the brand really appealing but a lot of companies just don't bother. it makes all the difference!

    @daisychain - you absolutely should, their products are lovely!

    @eluciaa - i think they definitely do although i wouldn't say the results were dramatic. it's such a light formulation so it doesn't weigh the hair down at all. it's less than £4 so worth a go :)


  8. Hey!

    I really like your blog, and so I nominated you for an award :)
