So far, I have reviewed body lotions only from one of my favourite brands, St Ives that manufactures Parabens free products. I have picked up all of the three products from Celine Dion Pure Brilliance range. So, here I am with the review of Celine Dion Parfums Pure Brilliance Moisturizing Body Lotion.
$7 for 75 ml. Price may vary across stores.
My Experience with Celine Dion Parfums Pure Brilliance Moisturizing Body Lotion:
Let me explain my skin type again.:D I have oily-combination skin and it becomes quite dry in winters. Ample provision of moisture along with a pleasant fragrance is mandatory in a body lotion for me. But, I try to keep my body moisturizer budget within limits because body lotion/butter is always required in more quantity than face moisturizer.
Packaging: The Celine Dion Pure Brilliance range is colour coded in purple with golden accents. Same applies for the body lotion packaging. The purple tube looks good with golden cap, but the golden print fails. The description is not too prominent and feels blurred. Even, clicking images was a pain. But, it is light weight, dispenses controlled amount from nozzle and travel friendly.
Consistency, Texture & Finish: Celine Dion Parfums Pure Brilliance Moisturizing Body Lotion has a thick consistency and soft texture. I will rather call it a hydrating body lotion than a moisturizing one. It is perfect for dry skin, but insufficient in terms of ‘moisturization’ for very dry skin.
It spreads out easily and a decent quantity(not huge) is required to cover the entire body. For legs and arms, a small amount fulfils the purpose. It gets absorbed quickly and leaves the skin hydrated and non-greasy. It has a matte finish; nothing glossy except for the small and scattered shimmer particles to add brilliance. I have noticed it adds some brightening effect to skin.
Fragrance and Results: As I have already mentioned, it is a hydrating body lotion in my opinion. Formulated with natural ingredients and being a Parabens free product, it gets additional liking. It takes away dryness and leaves skin non-greasy. On dry skin, the hydration lasts 5-6 hours and can be followed by a re-application, if required.
I think severely dry skinned beauties must not pick this up as a body lotion, until they want the tiny scattered shimmers to add glamour to their backless or cropped tops in winters. It leaves skin soft and smooth. The dominant quality is the signature fragrance of Celine Dion range. Infused with top fruity, middle floral and base woody and musky notes, the fragrance just makes your day and stays as long as the entire day, giving a refreshing feeling throughout.
Pros of Celine Dion Parfums Pure Brilliance Moisturizing Body Lotion:
• Parabens free product, with natural ingredients.
• Light weight and non-greasy body lotion.
• Absorbs fast with matte effect, but contains small, scattered shimmers.
• Suitable for normal-dry skin.
• Heavenly fragrance.
• Definitely hydrating for skin.
• Lasts for 5-6 hours on average.
• Thick consistency with soft texture.
• Leaves skin smooth, hydrated and soft.
• Travel friendly.
Cons of Celine Dion Parfums Pure Brilliance Moisturizing Body Lotion:
• Expensive for the quantity.
• Availability issues.
• Not for severely dry skins.
Would I Repurches/Recommend Celine Dion Parfums Pure Brilliance Moisturizing Body Lotion?
I really like the effect it gives to my skin; hydrated with total matte finish and small, scattered sparkles to add light reflection and brilliance. I love the product and will repurchase whenever it is easily available.
I recommended it to people with normal and dry skins, but skip this product if you have super dry skin as hydration level is really good, but it is not a body butter or high moisture lotion.
See you again with another product pretty soon.
