Marks and Spencer Rose Moisturising Body Cream Review

What it claims: With the fragrance of timeless English Rose, this richly moisturising body cream has a carefully balanced PH to leave your skin beautifully scented, feeling softened and fully moisturised.

Price and Quantity: Rs. 595 for 250 ml
Ingredients:

Marks & Spencer Rose Moisturising Body Cream

What I like about Marks and Spencer Rose Body Cream:

  • The fragrance: Very mild and ‘barely there’ sorts. It smells exactly like crushed roses. I have never come across a body cream that comes so close to smelling like real roses.
  • The consistency: It is between a lotion and a cream though more the latter than the former. It is not runny though sometimes I do find it a bit slippery on my skin which I, in fact, love! I like the fact that this cream does not weigh my skin down or make my pores feel clogged.
  • The texture: Smooth, velvety and even. This cream glides like a dream on my body.
  • Since it is not very moisturising and completely non-oily and non-greasy, this body cream can be easily used in the summer season.

What I don’t like about Marks and Spencer Rose Body Cream:

  • The fragrance does not last beyond 2 hours or so but then that could also be because it is, in any case, a very mildly fragrant body cream.
  • It is merely an afterbath cream to keep your body supple. It has more or less zero moisturising properties if used otherwise by dry skinned people or by those combating harsh winters.
  • Contains every possible paraben ! :(

Verdict: An average product.

Rating: :-* :-* :-*

Would you purchase again? : No, simply because I would like to try more such products from Marks and Spencer. I already have their Shea Body Butter (also reviewed on IMBB by me) and I prefer it anyday over this cream both because of the natural sheen that it imparts to my legs and arms and its superlasting fragrance and moisturisation.

Forest Essentials Rose Bath and Body Oil is simply luscious compared to this cream, am saying cos’ I’m a junky for anything Rose and I’ve used this cream to somewhat similar conclusions as yours :)
