Shea Whip Body Lotion
I leave this next to my bed, before I go to sleep, I use it on my hands and feet. It seems to exfoliate the dead skin; I started to do this because like other reviewers, I didn't like the smell that much, a little masculine, but I LOVE the way this works! I have my hands in water a lot and I don't always use lotion after - this gets rid of the dead skin, when you rub, the skin starts to come off, (which may be icky if I wasn't in bed), and exposes fresh skin and the lotion gets right in. I know very specific use, but try it!

Not so light
I bought this after reading the product description & reviews that said Shea Whip had a nice light clean fragrance. It actually has a heavy dense fragrance... almost more suitable for a male (it reminded me just a little of Patchouly).

Offensive Cologne Smell
Obviously the appeal of a scent is subjective, but I was really surprised how offensive this one was.
Other reviews suggested that this is a light earthy pleasant scent, and I have no idea how we could be smelling the same product. To me it smells very strongly like a cheap cologne. And I'm not fond of colognes and similar perfumes. I'm fine with flowery, with sweet, with fruity, and even with earthy (for example the hemp products). But not with cologne. And this was overpowering.
I tried it several times, hoping I could get past it, but I couldn't. It even lingered on my hands after washing them thoroughly. My mother also could not stand it, so I next offered it to a coworker who said it was tolerable once applied.
I am sad to discover that so many of the Body Shop products are heavily perfumed. I'll have to make a trek to one of the retail locations to smell products before I buy anything new again.

Great for sensitive skin
I have weirdly hive-prone skin on my chest. Almost any kind of moisturizer makes me break out. I have tried many things. I tried this expecting the same. This is great! The consistency is wonderful. It sinks right in. The fragrance is light. And best of all, it doesn't make me break out!!! I also love the Aloe Body Butter for drier days.
