My Experience with Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Sea Fennel Body Lotion:

Thanks to my dry skin, I keep experimenting with a variety of face and body lotions and moisturising creams. If you’ve read any of my reviews before, you’ll know of how apprehensive the presence of parabens in any product makes me! Hence, I’m always on a mission to try out paraben-free lotions and creams. For my face, I think Cetaphil has finally worked for me. For my body, I have tried several creams and lotions (with and without parabens), but I don’t seem to have found THE one just yet.

I’ll start by describing this lotion. This is a very lightweight lotion that blends very, very easily and gets absorbed by the skin within seconds. It leaves absolutely no trace of greasiness. The fragrance is very fresh and clean, just as it has been described. I think such a lotion with this type of fragrance is ideal for the summertime.


As far as hydration is concerned, I think this lotion is averagely moisturising. If you have dry skin, then I really don’t think this will work very well for you. However, this is ideal for normal skin during the hot and humid months when all you want is something lightweight, fresh, clean and yet something that will provide your skin just the right amount of moisture.

I really like this lotion (even though it doesn’t fully meet the needs of my dry skin) because it is so lightweight, pleasantly fragrant and paraben and phthalate free. The shape of the bottle is also a refreshing change from the regular body lotion bottle.

I use this lotion quite frequently, however, I always need to supplement it with a richer, more moisturising lotion. However, for moisture “touch-ups” during the day, I really like using this one.

Pros of Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Sea Fennel Body Lotion:

– Very lightweight and fast-absorbing lotion.
– Fresh, clean and pleasant fragrance.
– Adequately moisturising. Best for normal skin.
– Ideal lotion for the summer.
– Paraben and phthalate free.
– Unique bottle design.
– Cruelty-free.


Cons of Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Sea Fennel Body Lotion:

– Not good enough for very dry skin. But you can always use another more moisturising lotion underneath this one.

My Verdict on Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Sea Fennel Body Lotion:

I really like and recommend this lotion. Even if you have dry skin like I do, you can always supplement this lotion with another lotion. This is lightweight, fast-absorbing, pleasantly fragrant and paraben-free. Quite the perfect choice for summer and otherwise.
