100% Pure Coconut Nourishing Body Cream -AKA: A Swaggable Mini Review

I'm a member of a beta website called Swaggable, whose mission is to bring "people and products together in new and fun ways. When people try products they fall in love with, they want to share those experiences. Swaggable is here to help users discover great new products together." Basically, you sign up on the site, let them know what your favorite products are, and from time to time they invite you to sample some new ones in line with your taste. I've gotten to sample a powder chai latte mix and most recently was sent a trio of body creams from Purity Cosmetics.

100% Pure Coconut Nourishing Cream (MSRP $15.00 for 8 oz.) is all natural, 100% vegan, and gluten free. According to the website, it is: "Highly nourishing, luxurious cream concentrated with potent anti-aging antioxidants, vitamins, skin softening fruit oils and moisturizing cocoa and avocado butters. Delicious smelling body cream will immediately hydrate, soften and feed your skin nutrients for a healthy, glowing complexion. Truly, 100% Pure - never any artificial fragrances, synthetic chemicals, toxic preservatives, or any other unsafe ingredients. Made only with the highest quality, organic nutrients for your skin."

Ingredients: Aloe Juice, Rose Hydrosol, Cocoa Butter, Avocado Butter, Grapeseed Seed Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Candelilla Wax, Blackcurrant Oil, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Coconut Flavor, Vanilla, Coconut Extract, Organic Green Coffee, Organic Wild Cherry, Pomegranate, Organic Raspberry, Blackberry and Organic White Tea, Citric Acid, Witch Hazel, Japanese Honeysuckle, Rosemary, Oregano, Thyme and Goldenseal, Grain Alcohol, Acai Berry, Resveratrol, Organic Green Tea, Mangosteen, Goji Berry, Maqui Berry, Elderberry and Muscadine Grape

My Take: Since my sample arrived in something akin to a ketchup packet, I didn't quite have high hopes for this cream. Well, they say never judge a book by its cover, and I suppose the same can be said for products and their packaging because this cream was FANTASTIC! It smelled like warm, toasted coconut and the texture of the cream itself was to die for: something between a thick, whipped mousse and a rich, luxurious cream. It left my rough, dry hands and forearms silky smooth and soft-my hands literally felt moisturized from the inside out! I will definitely be buying a full size of this cream; I was that impressed!

Until next time...
