Parachute Advanced Body Lotion Review

Winter has come. We eagerly wait for this time of the year since winter is very pleasant yet very short in India. Though it is a season of joy and merriment, your skin needs some special care during this season. So it’s essential to have some winter-care product in your collection. Today I shall be reviewing Parachute advanced body lotion.

Parachute advanced body lotion:
I believe we have all seen the commercial on TV. It’s pretty romantic, isn’t it? ;-)

What Parachute advanced body lotion claims:
“100% natural moisturisers for soft and silky skin with milk of coconut fruit”
Price: Rs. 20 for 45ml, rs. 40 for 100ml.
Shelf life: 24 months from the mfd. Date.
Ingredients: Aqua, Cocos Nucifera oil, Glycerin, Coconut milk, Steareth-21, Steareth-2, Fragrance, Carbomer.
Quite simple, huh?
Cocos Nucifera oil: coconut oil.
Steareth-21: The polyethelyne glycol ethers of stearyl alcohol. Used as emulsifier.
Steareth-2: Derived from palm oil. Used as mild cleanser and emulsifier.
Carbomer: It is an excellent thickening agent. Hypo-allergenic ,does not support bacterial growth. It also has a nice “skin feel” producing solutions and gels that feel rich and luxerious to the touch.
About the product:
The bottle comes with a nozzle tip. Bottle reminds me of a curvy female body :-p. Packaging is not bad.

The substance is not too thick, not too runny. Gets easily absorbed, not sticky at all.

Has a ‘coconutty’ smell, which is very strong.

Pros of Parachute Advanced Body Lotion Review

  • Texture is good.
  • Comes from natural source, no harmful chemicals.
  • Affordable.
  • Nice packaging, the bottle is quite pretty.

Cons of Parachute Advanced Body Lotion

  • Though it is meant for dry skin people, it is not very thick. So I don’t think dry skin people would really like this.
  • Moisturising power is not very long lasting. U hav to repeat application every half an hour.
  • I absolutely loathe the smell. I hate hate hate the smell. It is like a strong coconut hair oil. I don’t apply it on my hands to avoid the smell. It’s nauseous. However, it is my personal point of view. My bro loves the smell.

Will I repurchase Parachute Advanced body lotion?

Yaaak, NO! I HATE the smell. They must change the smell. It nauseates me.

Rating: :-*:-* . Only for packaging and natural sources.

Well, it is not an outstanding product, just average body lotion. You can give it a try coz it’s affordable. So you have nothing to lose.

I actually tried the product…and must say i loved it. Its one of the few products that is not sticky at all and gets absorbed easily, maybe coz its 100% natural as they claim. Bulbul i actually loved the smell :) dint smell any coconut… my skin has actually become way more soft than how it started becoming rough and dry during the winter start. some of my friends who have used it also liked it a lot.

I think the person making the review was using a smaller bottle which does not discloses all ingredients which are as follows:
Aqua, Glycerin, Cocos, Nucifera Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cetyl Alcohol,
Glycerine Stearate, Stearic acid, coconut milk, polysorbate 20, fragrance, sorbitan stearate, triethanolamine, Methyl Paraben, carbomer, titanium dioxide, Propyl Paraben, phenoxythenol, Disodium EDTA. *Contains moisturisers from natural source (which are not specified)

I was in search of a moisturiser with no harmful chemicals and came to this review. i bought the product and now the ingredients are all the same that i wanted to avoid. The parabens, i hate them as they are very harmful substances and may cause cancer.
The fragrance i dont think is an issue. i rather prefer lotions with no fragrance at all.

Hey… I tried out this product.. Its not bad. And it most certainly does not smell like coconut. In fact it has a sort of perfume smell to it. Probably just me.. But I think it will be good for people with dry skin… its nice.. And as for that cancer product that Shruti was talking about… Its there in almost all lotions… Even baby lotion.. So I don’t know if people should not give this a try cuz of that.
Like ur review btw.. Even though we may have conflicting views on the product. :)

I have tried using Parachute Advansed Body Lotion and I think the texture is very nice.

Many of us think that the thicker the lotion more effective it is as a moisturizer. This is a myth, because in reality thick creams can block the pores as a result of which the skin cannot breathe. Light moisturizers enables the skin to breathe making it smooth. Thus, I prefer moisturizers which are not very thick.
