Hey everyone! 🙂
After reading IMBB for over 2 weeks now, I finally decided to join in! Thank you Rati. 🙂
I am a total sucker for cocoa butter. And anything that smells even remotely like it. So when I saw this body lotion in the Himalaya Herbals store, I whooped and grabbed it off the shelf at once (and attracted weird stares from the lady on my right)!
I have tried so many body lotions till now, and this one comes in the category of “Regular / Ordinary”. It isn’t ‘luxurious’, as it claims to be. It is between light and heavy… is somewhere in between. Not recommended for oily skin.
Its smell is comparable to Vaseline’s Cocoa Butter Body Lotion (highly similar).
Pretty nice looking bottle :). And that’s partly the reason I whooped and grabbed it off the shelf when I saw it :).
Himalaya body lotion is of runny-ish consistency (as in, it’s not a very heavy cream). It’s white, with no particles in it. Has a regular flip cap, which is quite tight. It spreads very easily, and goes into my skin perfectly, leaving behind, er, yummy skin!
I’ve used it for quite some time now, and will continue to do so (that is till it gets over)!
Dry/Extra dry skin
What the bottle says:

Key Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Olive Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Wheatgerm Oil

My Take on the Himalaya Body lotion:
Wonderfully fragranced, not very strong. Does a good job of eliminating dryness (though maybe not extreme dryness), and it smells of cocoa!!! 🙂
Sturdy packaging, although cannot be carried around. Perhaps a 100 ml bottle will do the trick!
Leaves my skin very smooth and soft, although nothing out of the ordinary. Good as a basic lotion for every day / regular use. I use it on my arms and legs, and apply it once in the morning, and once before bed. Also leaves my sheets smelling delicious. 🙂
Pros of Himalaya Body Lotion

• Hypoallergenic (but then again, who knows?)

• Delivers their claims on dry skin
Cons of Himalaya Herbals Intensive Moisturizing Body Lotion
• Won’t work on extra-dry skin. Is too light for that!

Buy now! 🙂 But don’t expect wonders 😀
