The pros: Trader Joe’s Lemongrass Coconut Body Oil is nicely moisturizing, has a sugary sweet aroma, and absorbs well into skin.
The cons: Fragrance might be natural but is not for everyone.
That is what this smells like the first time I put it on. The next time I put it on I had my husband smell my arm.
OMG, It smells like Lemon Pez and I haven’t smelled that in years.
That was my husband’s response.
So, if you can get past the cloying sweet aroma that is more appropriate for Dylan’s Candy Bar than something sophisticated, then here is an item I’ve overlooked on countless occasions in the health and beauty aisle.
With the heat, humidity, and going in and out of air conditioning has left my skin more dry than usual. I have my share of chronic dry patches that a regular lotion doesn’t seem to address. While I think this would be better suited to winter time use, it left my skin soft even after showering.
A little goes a long way here. This is all oil. At 70 degrees it wasn’t solidified like the bottle warned. But for an oil, I don’t end up feeling greasy.
I’d probably only use this item on my body and not my face as the smell here is quite strong and far more pronounced than say the seasonal Trader Joe’s Rose Facial Oil.
For $3.99 it’s inexpensive and something that you might not have noticed on shelves. If you can get past the candy sweet smell, it is a really nice moisturizer at a bargain price.
