Am guessing Hawiian Tropic? Do they do a lotion - all I could see in Asda was oil.

Am hankering after a nice coconut smelling lotion - I got Nivea invisible and it pongs like fly spray and had to put it in the bin!

Hawaiian Tropic smells delicious. I've just bought some for our hols (even though the forecast is now rain sad)

Not sure it's quite coconut but it does smell lovely.

They do a lotion as well as oil. It goes up to SPF30 I think.

I currently have a Tesco own brand one called Soleil or something like that, smells very much like coconut, which is unfortunate as I am not a coconut fan.

Estree Lauder Bronze Goddess smells like coconut too

I got Soltan Invisible from Boots, which smells like flyspray too, but the smell disappears v quickly, and it is fab - no sticky slimy skin. Though obv no coconut smell - perhaps you could get a coconut shower gel to compensate?

Piz Buin is the smell of holidays smile (And gives the best tans)

Asda one is nice.

Hawaiian tropic smells lovely. I'm not sure if it's good or not though as haven't spent too long in the sun with it on.
I do really love Piz Buin like Pinot. Wish I'd bought that instead, but the HT was on offer and the PB very expensive.
I have the HT lotion factor 30 - goes on v nicely and not at all greasy.

Malibu smells of coconut - I absolutely love it. It's really cheap as well. I get mine from Superdrug.

Hawaiian Tropic do lotions - Boots have them on their website.
