Thanks all for the lovely comments on my previous post on the Bath and Body Works Maui Mango Surf Fragrance Mist. Today, I am reviewing the Aloe Gel lotion from the same fragrance range. Mostly Bath and Body Works have the Shea and Vitamin E Body lotions which are cream-based lotions essentially. However with the Hawaii collection, they have launched Aloe Gel lotions. Read on to find out more.
$5.00 for 2 fl oz / 59 ml.
Get swept away to paradise! Our luxuriously lightweight, ultra-refreshing formula with soothing Aloe and nourishing Coconut &Monoi Oils absorbs quickly, leaving a silky smooth finish.
Top Notes: Ruby Mango, Polynesian Tangerine, Guava Nectar, White Pineapple
Mid Notes: Mango Mai Tai, Sun-bleached Driftwood, Coral Hibiscus, Hawaiian Lily, Pacific Blue Accord
Dry Notes: Island Sandalwood, Skin Musk, Lanai Ylang
Smooth over skin for soothing, non-greasy moisture.
My Experience with Bath and Body Works Maui Mango Surf Aloe Gel Lotion:
Packaging: I have the travel version of the gel lotion and it comes in a sky blue plastic flip-top tube. The packaging is absolutely cute and attractive. It spells Hawaii and beach all the way!! The tube is sturdy and travel friendly. It is also available in a bigger 5.6 fl oz variant.
Fragrance: The fragrance is a mix of mango, pineapple and citrus. It definitely smells more mango than the body mist from the same fragrance. It reminds me of beaches and summer. It is an out-and-out fruity fragrance. Those of you who love fruity, flirty, fresh fragrances will surely love this.
The fragrance lingers on my body for 2-3 hours, but stays longer if I layer it with fragrance mist from the same range.
Texture and Performance: The aloe gel lotion is light blue in color and has a gel-like consistency. It has a slight cooling sensation on the skin and doesn’t feel greasy at all. It gets spread very easily and gets absorbed into the skin. Its texture is very much like other water-based lotions. In spite of not being overtly creamy, it manages to moisturize pretty well. It leaves my skin soft and supple. The aloe gel lotion feels much lighter than regular lotions and would be a great option to use in sweltering summers.
To summarize, this body lotion is a very good option to keep your skin hydrated and well-nourished during the Spring/Summer months. The fruity mango fragrance is just an added bonus.
Pros of Bath and Body Works Maui Mango Surf Aloe Gel Lotion:
- Wonderful fruity fragrance with strong mango notes.
- Moisturizes well.
- Non greasy.
- Gets absorbed easily into the skin.
- Attractive and sturdy packaging.
- Great option for spring/summer.
Cons of Bath and Body Works Maui Mango Surf Aloe Gel Lotion:
- Might not be suitable for extremely dry skin.
- Some of you may find the fragrance too strong.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Bath and Body Works Maui Mango Surf Aloe Gel Lotion?
Yes, this is a pretty effective water-based lotion with a lovely fruity fragrance. I have already hauled quite a few gel lotions and need to finish those before repurchasing anything.
