Review: LUSH Coco Lotion

I haven't done one of these in awhile

 This is lush's only (I think) unscented lotion. I have had samples of a few other lotions that are more rich than coco lotion I like to wear perfumes so I wanted to buy something that is not scented. really great ingredients I am a huge fan of coconut oil anyway I use it on my skin (usually extra virgin but the cooking grade stuff is great too and smells so good) it is a vegan lotion but unfortunately does contain parabens
here is the ingredient list
* Spring Water (Aqua),
* Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera),
* Mandarin and Rosemary Infusion (Citrus nobilis and Rosmarinus officinalis),
* Pimento Berry,
* Nutmeg and Star Anise decoction (Pimenta officinalis; Myristica fragrans and Illicium verum),
* Stearic Acid,
* Peanut Oil (Arachis hypogaea),
* Triethanolamine,
* Fresh Pineapple (Ananas Sativus),
* Organic Pumpkinseed Oil (Cucurbita),
* Sesame Oil (Sesamum indicum),
* Cetearyl Alcohol,
* Propylparaben.

I've been using this for about a week. My skin is softer I don't put it on all the time maybe once a day if I am lucky and remember. My legs which I have been neglecting this summer are really showing the signs the most. No dry ickyness.
I have to say I would rather have a pump bottle for this lotion. I am not a fan of putting my fingers/hands in the tub. I will have to see how long it lasts to see if it's really worth the 20 dollar price tag though. I am sure if you are doing lots of swimming this would not be enough.
For right now my skin seems to like it and it's working for me.
Even in the tub it seems more liquidy than some of their other lotions so if you like a reaaaaaaaally thick lotion this is not for you. If you like a lighter lotion for day time and then do something richer at night this just might work for you.
 Like I said my skin has been neglected a bit this summer but it's working for me. Even my feet are looking better and they have been so dry this summer because I walk around barefoot or just in flip flops all the time. I abuse my poor feet.
I would buy this again BUT I kinda have my eye on the waaaay more expensive "let me find money on the street to justify my splurge" Creme Anglaise for my next lotion purchase.
