The Body Shop Madagascan Vanilla Flower Body Lotion

Hello Ladies !!

Today I am going to review a product from the body shop, which is kind of new in the Indian marker I guess as previously this range was only available online. I saw this in my local TBS and couldn’t resist picking it.

The Body Shop Madagascan Vanilla Flower  Body Lotion

Community Fair Trade shea butter from Ghana helps to protect and nourish your skin.

Oriental scent
Lightweight moisture

Under a blazing sun, a vanilla orchid winds around a tree, reaching for the sky. As the pods ripen, a heavenly scent fills the air. The Body Shop captures this unique moment in the warm and sensual fragrance.

My experience with The Body Shop Madagascan Vanilla Flower Body Lotion:

This is another product from my Body Shop stash. This comes in a regular transparent bottle with a pump at the top. Almost all their body lotions come in a similar pump packagings. This one has a lock mechanism too which is really thoughtful of them.

The consistency of the product is not at all greasy. It is kind of gel like or rather watery consistency but it doesn’t like glide off your hands when you tilt it. This is the reason I picked it up. I cannot have greasiness sitting on my skin in this warn and humid conditions right now. The smell is like vanilla-floral and kind of oriental. Now I am a fan of vanilla-musky scents. I love classics and everything out there, which has similar scent, belongs to my stash. :P
So I have been using this as a regular moisturizer and I must say this is perfect for summers and monsoons. This moisturizes my skin well without making it a bottom of frying pan. It leaves a subtle smell for around 2-3 hours, which I guess, is decent enough for a light moisturizer like this.

This lotion is from their ‘scents of the world’ range. I must admit, the scent is really different. I mean it is not strong or anything, it is mild and really pleasing. It has this wonderful combination of muskiness mixed with vanilla and flowers, you are sure to become fan of this baby.

Pros of The Body Shop Madagascan Vanilla Flower Body Lotion:

1. Decent packaging
2. Is a wonderful product for moisturization especially in the current season
3. Doesn’t leave your skin greasy and all
4. Sinks in to the skin quickly
5. Smells exotic
6. Leaves a subtle fragrance on the skin for 2-3 hours
7. Is on sale right now :P
