It is summer time and the skin needs are constantly changing in line with the changing weather. Keep aside all the heavy moisturizers and body butters because, summer calls for a lighter and non-greasy formula that can hydrate skin without making it look like a bomb of oil. The Body Shop has just the right body lotion for summers and spring. The lotion that I am reviewing today is the “The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig Body lotion”. Read on to know more about it.
The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig Body Lotion is a smooth and light body lotion inspired by the Italian summer. It features fresh, cool top notes of grape leaf and crocus, a floral base note of Tuscan rose and warm base notes of amber, Oakwood and scented with the succulent aroma of figs from Italy. These figs are grown to their full glory in the summer and hand-picked after they have basked in the Mediterranean sun and blended into a beautiful extract that enhances any beauty ritual. It is a part of the Voyage collection. This range has 5 products: a perfume, a mist, shower gel, lotion and a body cream.
My Experience with The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig Body Lotion:
Packaging: The body lotion comes in a white bottle with rich black print and a black cap. The packaging is simple but at the very same time very detailed. The cap is a press release one. The bottle has instructions to use which clearly mentions that the lotion cannot be applied on face. The bottle weighs 250 ml or 8.4 ounce.
There are many reason why you just cannot happen to not love TBS because, the products are so natural, can reflect anyone’s personality, they are against animal-cruelty, can be found across the globe and some of them are vegan. Yes this lotion is vegan, so a big-shout out to all the vegan lovers out there, you have vegan food for your skin as well.
The whole series has got a distinctive fig scent, very green and definitely unisex. The formula is of a lightweight lotion, it applies easily (no intensive rubbing needed), absorbs quickly to the skin, it leaves no greasy film and leaves the skin feeling hydrated, and nourished. The skin feels soft and smooth, and is scented lightly. The smell is very subtle and not overpowering. It is a lovely product and will make a gorgeous gift, especially for those who like figs and green scents. One can use the lotion as a layer for the mist or perfume for the scent to last really long.
Pros of The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig Body Lotion:
- Fresh summer fragrance that lasts quite long.
- Has a quick absorbing formula that leaves skin moisturized, not greasy though.
- Definitely unisex and very different.
Cons of The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig Body Lotion:
- The packaging could have been more interesting.
IMBB Rating: 3.8/5
