My take on Bath & Body Works Pleasures Sun Ripened Raspberry Body Lotion:

I came across this lotion as a gift from a friend in 2008 and since then I have been addicted to this. It is my favorite lotion of all times.It smells like a combination of vanilla and raspberries.It is a light moisturizer and is not at all greasy.

As I apply it to my skin it gets absorbed quickly leaving a moisturized skin. I have been using the lotion for the past 5 years but sparingly as this fragrance is not available in India and every time its finished,I need to wait till one of my friends return to India 🙂 One bottle lasts up to 6 months if you use it daily a bit sparingly 😉

It comes in a sturdy bottle with a transparent cap with a push- button from where the lotion is dispensed from.
It is not for the dry skin ladies out there as it is mild and cannot control the dry skin during the winters.They can very well use it in the summers. I normally combine it with any unscented lotions and use during winters.

Good article. I’ve been using Parachute Advansed Body Lotion for my Dry Skin. It has given me good results. Do you feel this rasperry body lotion is better than that? I’m always allergic to body lotions made up of chemicals. What’s your suggestion?

It looks lovely! 🙂 but yeah sadly most bbw r not great with moisturising 🙁 but still worth it coz they feel heavenly! Usin a creamy wash, body lotion n body butter on some areas makes it vry moisturising.. N i think bbw on purpose keep mild moisturising power in dr products so tat ppl buy more frm each range n layer them for desired effect 😀 nice review Manogna, u do hav a lovely name!

Sorry Divya Missed your comment earlier.Thank you! 🙂 This BBW raspberry lotion is not that good with dry skin divya.I liked it mainly for its long lasting sweet fragrance.You can mix it with any un-scented moisturizing lotion and use it.If your main aim is to use it as a lotion to treat dry skin / scales then you can give it a skip.

Thanks Nafisa.. Ya they are not very moisturizing but totally worth it 😀
