Aloha Coconut: Fantastic Products & Service with a Smile!

Thursday, May 8, 2008

I would like to take a few moments here to rave about my phenomenal order from ALOHA COCONUT!

I ordered Friday afternoon (May 2nd) and had my order at 10am Monday (the 5th!). Now that is lightning fast shipping.

I am very, very impressed with Jennifer's company. She closed right around the same time that I closed FCB in June 2007. Jen opened up her shop again and she decided to have a clearance sale.



I would like to first say that Jennifer's customer service is stellar. She is quick to answer questions and even though it is across the net, you can tell that her responses are genuine. If you truly want service with a smile while etailer shopping, Aloha Coconut will give you that!

I ordered 5 of the Island Pearl Body Wash: Peach Bellini, Regal Rice Pudding, Iced Tea Twister, Miss Mud Fudge, and Hawaiian Ginger. The Aloha Sun Smoothie (body lotion) I ordered is also in Miss Mud Fudge.

My package was shipped Priority Mail and packaged with great care. My products were carefully wrapped in fuchsia striped packaging. The bottles are fun and gift worthy: amber PET with white caps and the labels are so tropical and put you in a cheery mood. Labels are truly waterproof, as they have been hit with water for the last 4 days in the shower with no wear.

I have to say that this is the first time I have ever ordered several different scents from ANYWHERE, retail or etail, and truly enjoyed every scent upon cold sniff. There is always that ONE that just isn't right, which is pretty normal when you can't sniff it before buying. All scents are true to their descriptions and you can tell that the quality of her fragrance oils is definitely top-notch.

I have now had a chance to try each body wash and am adoring them all. My skin is very sensitive and it is rare for me to be able to use a liquid or gel body wash without itching like crazy. The only other body wash that hasn't bothered my skin has been the Surf's Up formula by Coconut Hut.

My initial thoughts were that I liked the Aloha Coconut formula and Coconut Hut formula about the same. Both are SLS-free and Paraben-free. Both are of similar consistencies. Neither make me itch. Neither make my skin as soft as an olive oil cold process soap, but I have come to realize that is to be expected. I love my collection of soaps, but this time of year I just love to use my loofah and a lighter weight shower gel or body wash.

The key difference between these two WONDERFUL products is the scent factor. The Aloha Coconut product has a scent which lingers for hours, even without layering with lotions, sprays, EDPs, etc. in the same scent. As great as the Surf's Up Body Wash from Coconut Hut is (and it is), the scent fades on me quickly. I can say without a doubt that this is my new favorite body wash and that I will be repurchasing from Jennifer very soon!

I also have to give a glowing recommendation for Aloha Sun Smoothie, Jennifer's lightweight body lotion. As much as I love creams and butters, this is the time of year when I stick to lotion. I don't want anything sticky or a formula that doesn't absorb quickly. I really did not need another lotion, but decided to order one anyway. I chose Miss Mud Fudge. It's a nice scent. If you have a Cheeburger Cheeburger near you (you know the yummy burger place with 80+ flavors of milkshakes?), this smells just like their Mud Pie milkshake. YUM.

I am 6/6 with my first of many Aloha Coconut orders. I ordered 6 products and will happily use them all up! Today I showered with the Hawaiian Ginger and it is so fresh, yet soft and unique.

For those of you wanting stellar customer service with a smile AND products free of the nasty chemicals, run, don't walk on over to Aloha Coconut. Jennifer is having a sale right now as well! It's her last sale of the season and I promise you won't be disappointed!
