Biotique Winter Cherry Body Lotion Review
Hello IMBB ,
We all know how moisturising after a bath is very important. The soap or bath gel we use, however natural it maybe, strips our body of its natural oils while cleansing it. To replenish the moisture loss we have to choose from after bath oils, body butters, body lotions. This is a review of one such product.
1. Biotique Winter Cherry Body Lotion.
What it says– A nourishing lotion made of natural oil and plant extracts it nourishes dry and dehydrated skin leaving it soft and youthful. Removes skin infection and blemishes.
Directions of use– Gently massage appropriate amount.
Helianthus Annus Oil (Surajmukhi Tail) – 4%
Carthamus Tinctorius Oil (Kusumbhi Tail) – 2.75%

Lotion Base- Q.S
Just notice the thickness of the lotion, I put a dollop on my hand and moved my hand clockwise and anticlockwise. The lotion did not budge.
Hits of Biotique Winter Cherry Lotion
:yes: It is a very thick lotion and heavily moisturises. The moisturising effect lasts for around 12-14 hours.
:yes: It claims about removing blemishes too, I don’t have any so I can’t comment. But a body lotion removing blemishes sounds good.
:yes: Full list of ingredients provided and not just the key ingredients. It has almond oil which is very good for the body.
Misses of Biotique Winter Cherry Lotion
:no: It is very heavily scented. It lingers on for quite some time. I did not like the fragrance at all. The smell is very “incense stick (agarbati) types.
:no: As it moisturises well, it is quite thick and greasy. You have to rub it in for around 4-5 minutes. Even then it is not totally absorbed. Leaves your skin feeling little oily.
:no: Bad packaging .The screw on cap doesn’t go down smoothly and you have to struggle with it.
:no: Lotion base as mentioned in the ingredient list is doubtful. What kind of base and what all goes into it, is unknown.
:no: Not user friendly, the lotion is thick so you have to squeeze the bottle really hard for it to come out.
Verdict– Not very impressive. Will use only if my skin is drying out and can’t find anything else to apply, because the smell really irritates me. Don’t think it will be on anyone’s ‘must have’ list unless of course it has worked some wonders for their skin. Dry skin people might find the moisturising effect very good but I think other better options are also available.
Will I repurchase? NO. My St. Ives Oatmeal &Shea Butter body Lotion is the current favourite and this is no competition to that.
