Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale

This is a great product, and I will be buying it again. But I will need to get some more coconut shaped cups first.

useful review
Even the Skipper and Gilligan would say this is really great stuff. The aroma is very relaxing. I have been using the bath wash every couple of days; it helps to set the mood. There is a problem with some of the ingredients in the hand lotion, but I'll get into that in a little bit. The body wash does make a great bubble bath.

PACKAGING

The packaging is simple, yet elegant. By putting images of tropical islands on the box, it evokes the sensation of warm sands and warm breezes. The bottle of body wash is a good size and shape, fitting into the hand nicely. It might be more artistic if the bottle looked like a coconut, but that's a marketing gimmick. I'll leave that to the Howells.

INGREDIENTS

Per the Professor:

Ok, here's where there is a slight problem. And it seems to be throughout the hand lotion industry. The product is supposed to soothe and moisturize. And yet the primary ingredients actually dehydrate. Almost every hand lotion I've seen has, as a primary ingredient, some form of alcohol. It still seems to work, and again the aroma is great, so I'm willing to overlook the discrepancy in the ingredient list.

AROMA

I would be remiss if I didn't continue with the aroma. The body wash smells deeply of coconut and vanilla. Again, makes me feel like I'm lying on a beach in the South Pacific. I almost expect to see Ginger and Mary Anne come out to scrub my back. Or at least bring me a drink in a coconut.

IN CONCLUSION

Anyway, these products definitely put me in the mood for a three hour tour that could end up shipwrecked for a long time. You know, no phone, no lights, no motor cars---not a single luxury, except your partner.
Follow-up commentary
We are still using the body wash. I will probably order more when it runs out. The hand lotion is running low, but is still effective.

    Cetyl alcohol and cetearyl alcohol are fatty alcohols and they actually act as moisturizers instead of drying the skin out like SD alcohol or ethyl alcohol do.
