In the midst of a busy week, one of my favorite ways to unwind is with a fragrant bodycare routine. Most recently, I've been delighting in the deliciously scented J.R. Watkins Coconut Milk & Honey line, courtesy of the folks at J.R. Watkins! J.R. Watkins is a brand I've enjoyed and written about in the past. I'm an unabashed fan of their natural and effective formulas, as well as their color-coordinated vintage apothecary packaging! The J.R. Watkins Coconut Milk & Honey products I have today are the Sugar & Shea Body Scrub, Body Oil Mist, and Body Butter.
The J.R. Watkins Coconut Milk & Honey Sugar and Shea Body Scrub is a moisturizing sugar scrub. The sugar granules are fairly large, but they melt away in hot water, creating a gentle scrub. For those who prefer a more vigorous scrub, I'd suggest turning down the faucet. The scrub does impart a nice layer of moisturization, as it contains a good amount of shea butter and other natural oils. The Body Oil Mist is a spray-on apricot kernel oil. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about this, but it turned out to be awesome! It's incredibly convenient. All it takes is a spritz and some light massaging, and the oil sinks in for a nice light to medium non-greasy finish on the skin.
Finally, I've been loving the J.R. Watkins Coconut Milk & Honey Body Butter, which is new to the lineup. The body butter formula is wonderful; you can feel the contribution from real semisolid butters. (After all, shea butter is the second most abundant ingredient, the first being water). Overall, it's a rich, thick, and moisturizing body butter great for head to toe moisturization. The Coconut Milk & Honey fragrance is very sweet (like its namesake!) and long-lasting.
With this trio of J.R. Watkins Coconut Milk & Honey products, I'm off to the land of milk and honey! The Body Butter ($11.99 for 6fl.oz.) is great for rich moisturization, while the Body Oil ($8.99 for 6fl.oz.) is quick and light. The Body Scrub ($12.99 for 8 oz.) is a good product for gentle moisturizing and exfoliation. Overall, these products have great formulas, fragrances, packaging, and prices --- indulge-worthy indeed. Thanks for reading! What J.R. Watkins products have you tried? Which of the three products appeals to you most?

I never tried something from the brand but oh my, honey and coconut milk sounds just delightful! I really love the idea of the spritz, I'm addicted to those, haha ^^. Lovely review Dovey!ReplyDelete
Hi Teri, Thank you!! It does smell really really yummy :)Delete
I'm dying to try more JR Watkins! Everything sounds great to me, but I like the sound of the body butter and oil in relation to the scent. :)ReplyDelete
Hi Liz, Thanks! I know you're a J.R.Watkins fan too! Speaking of scents, I think another new body butter scent or two might be launching soon too!Delete
Sounds lovely Dovey! Haha-that just rhymed and I'm forever typing that on a comment here now!ReplyDelete
I adore honey in products! Need to look for this here!
LOL Thanks Tracy! Honey is good in everything :-)Delete
Sounds like a lovely night time pampering routine. I was wondering where you could possibly buy these. Are these available at drugstores?ReplyDelete
Hi Mitzi, Thanks! I really enjoy J.R. Watkins products! I think availability varies by location, however I've often seen them at Target. According to JRW's website, Walmart and Ulta should have them too.Delete
I've seen this in my local stores. I've been meaning to try this brand! They sound great!ReplyDelete
Hi Iris, I've really liked what I've tried so far!!Delete
I've seen this brand at Target :) it looks very nice and expensive :D I love coconut and love body butters =DReplyDelete
Hi RD&L, looks expensive but it's pretty wallet friendly for the quality!Delete
I've been so curious about the brand ever since you wrote about it a while ago! The combination of coconut milk and honey sounds right up my alley! I like the ingredient lists and price range as well! Time to try to hassle a friend into bringing me some from the States ;)ReplyDelete
