The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion

Hello Everybody! This is my first post on IMBB and I’m very excited. I’ve been following IMBB for more than 6 months now and I’m so happy that I’m finally going to be a part of this lovely family.

I was wondering which product to start off with and I noticed The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion standing alone on my shelf. So, I picked it up and here’s the review.

The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion

What is The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion?
“Cooling and refreshing, this lightweight non-greasy gel, with fabulously fruity and juicy natural ingredients, absorbs easily to instantly hydrate and moisturise.”
Suitable For:
Normal Skin Types.

Price: Rs. 495 for 250 ml (I got at Rs. 396, i.e., 20% off during Diwali :toothygrin: ).  I think the price has been hiked recently to Rs. 515 (not sure about it).

My Take on The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion:

The Body Shop is well known for their great-smelling products and this one isn’t any different, smells just AMAZING! In fact, it was just the smell that pushed me into buying it. It smells just like “freshly peeled ripe orange” and honestly, fruity smells are so totally “my thing.”  I still remember being asked if I’d eaten an orange before coming to class the day I wore this lotion to college:P, but sadly enough, this product hasn’t really gained too much of my love, although it lives upto almost all of its claims.

As the product claims, it is cooling when you apply it and lightweight too as it disappears within seconds of application on the skin leaving a thin film of “barely there” moisturization, which I don’t really like. I like it when I can actually feel the lotion on my body as it assures me of being well moisturized, but I can’t really complain about this because this one is meant for normal skin and my skin is super dry, especially the skin on my body.  So, this might be useful for normal/oily skinned beauties. Also, one thing I completely dislike is that, it’s kind of sticky! I sweat a lot and water just makes things worse. I feel as though I have applied glue onto my palms. 🙁

After spreading The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion:

Apart from sticky feeling, the moisturizing effect lasts just for about 3—4 hours after which you would have to re-apply the lotion and well, that is made easy since the bottle comes with a pump dispenser with a locking system to it, making it travel friendly.

What I Like about The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion:

  • The fragrance!!!! I am head-over-heels in love with its smell. 😛
  • Travel-friendly packaging.
  • Lightweight texture.
  • Cost-effective considering the quantity.
  • The fact that your skin feels silky, smooth and moisturized in just a matter of seconds.

The Things I Do Not Like about The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion:

  • The stickiness!!!! Yuck. It stayed on till I washed my hands off.
  • Not suitable for dry-skinned girls.
  • In my opinion, a body lotion should be a tad more richer than this. This is kind of watery which makes it not too suitable for the entire body.

Would I Repurchase The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion:

Even though it gives a nice finish and disappears within seconds after applying, I wouldn’t buy this, thanks to all the stickiness it leaves behind. I’d love to try the strawberry variant of the puree lotions next. 🙂 or maybe the Satsuma Body Butter since I’m smitten by the smell. :drool: :drool:

Rating:

3/5 (-1 for the stickiness and -1 for it not being moisturising enough).
