I Love... Strawberries and Milkshake Moisturising Body Lotion Review (1) I Love… Strawberries and Milkshake Moisturising Body Lotion Review

On an unassuming online window shopping day, I came across a beautiful looking bottle of body lotion, a bottle so cute that I did not wait to read its reviews/claims. I just had to own that cute looking bottle irrespective of what’s inside it (crazy I know!).

Claim: Feel scrumptious with a burst of fresh strawberries and smooth yummy cream. All our new body lotions include coconut oil &Shea butter to help leave your skin feeling gorgeously nourished & fabulously smooth. Oh and for the record our yummy products are Paraben Free and pH Balanced. (CutehuhJ)

My experience: Those cute hearts on the bottle made my heart skip a bit.

Color: Light Pink

Texture: Creamy&non-greasy.

Spread-ability: Spreads easily.

Smell: Delicious-That’s what it is. It smells like, well, Strawberry milkshake! No artificial strawberry smell; the real crushed strawberry smell. Even the seeds are in there. I have to keep telling myself to not drink it up :-D But once applied onto skin, it doesn’t smell that great sadly. On the contrary it’s quite putting off.

Moisturizing ability: Quite good. Skin stays hydrated for a good 5 hours. It has coconut oil and Shea butter after all.

Packaging: A sturdy transparent plastic bottle with a black pump dispenser.

Pros:

  1. Beautiful bottle
  2. Delicious smell inside the bottle
  3. Decent moisturizing ability
  4. Very cheap for a European cosmetic brand
  5. Pump dispenser makes use easy

Cons:

  1. Smell is yummy only inside the bottle. On skin it smells a bit rancid.
  2. Pump dispenser makes it difficult for use during travel

Rating: B-

Price: Rs. 299 for 250 ml. Yes you read that right. A European product in India for that rate! That’s half the price of Body Shop lotions.

Recommendation: No. I bought it for the cute bottle. There are other lotions that moisturize as much but are better smelling. But only if you want to own the bottle J
