It's not deodorant

Today I present to you another treat from Oyin Handmade- The Body Bar. It looks like a bar of deoderant but it is really a tube of body lotion. I purchased the $12.00 Coco Mango body bar which has a sweet tropical scent. I think this all natural product is pretty cute and fun to use but all in all it seems like cocoa butter stuffed in a deodorant tube. This does not mean I don't like it, I do, I'm just not sure if this is something I would go out of my way to purchase again. The body bar is really soft and melts almost on contact. In the end, I suppose I could mix my own butters and add the appropriate fragrances to get a similar product.
Some of the key ingredients include mango and cocoa butter, vitamin e, coconut and avocado oils.

Have you tried this product? If so, what are your thoughts?

i looove coco mango especially in the summer and as face oil.
I know what you mean about making something similar.

I also used the belly bar and didn't see any results. I almost ate the candy bar. It smells soo good!!

I was tempted to buy these at one point for my traveling case. They would be create for summer vacays b/c they smell so good and are portable. Except I do think they would melt. What do you think?

I don't have it, but just the idea of a coco mango scent MAKES ME WANT IT!!!

Also, B's right. It would be great for traveling.

I've never tried this product, but I immediately thought it was deodorant! I love that it's a body lotion in a stick form. I'd love to try it. Thanks for sharing!
