My Experience with Garnier Loving Blends Body Soothing Bodymilk:
I love Garnier Loving Blends Range and as it was for dry and sensitive skin, I picked this one up. The product comes in a plastic pump bottle. The pump on the bottle has a stop and open option and thus it is travel friendly. The lotion comes in a white bottle with a light pink pump. Overall the packaging is satisfactory.
The lotion is creamy and thick but not rich and smells of flowers and vanilla. I absolutely love the smell. The lotion is made for dry and sensitive skin. Considering the fact that it is made for sensitive skin, this is my go-to lotion after epilating or waxing my arms and legs. The lotion soothes the area and doesn’t cause any redness or irritation. I also use this lotion it treat mosquito bites/ allergy pimples I get once in a while when I don’t have coconut or olive oil and it soothes the area. If you have sensitive skin, this product is tailor made for you.
The other notable point is that the product is paraben free. The lotion gets absorbed immediately by the body and doesn’t leave any greasy residue behind. The skin looks very well moisturized and thoroughly hydrated. My skin also felt smoother and softer to touch immediately. The lotion is also very light and doesn’t make the skin feel that there is something sitting on the top of it! The lotion reduces dryness and also reduces the dry flakes but however the product doesn’t last the whole day! The lotion stays for a good 6 hours and after that you notice that you can draw dry lines on your hands and legs.
I have really dry legs and my legs turn dry after 6 hours, but one of the advantages with this lotion irrespective of the short stay is, it doesn’t make my skin itchy. With a little dryness, my skin turns very itchy but with lotion I have noticed that it is not the case. However, this product would be best for normal skinned beauties to be used for winters and for dry skinned beauties, this lotion for winter is a no-no! I wish Garnier does something to improve the moisturisation effect for long, but other than that it is a good lotion for dry and sensitive skin. So summing up:
