Himalaya Herbals Intensive Moisturizing Body Lotion: Review

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!

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

• Smells real good
• Inexpensive
• Reputed brand
• Availability
• Contains cocoa butter, wheatgerm oil, grape seed oil, olive oil (all good stuff!)
• Hypoallergenic (but then again, who knows?)
• Not sticky at all, easily absorbed into skin
• 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!
• Cannot be used as sunscreen. No SPF.
• Contains parabens
• Contains EDTA

Buy now! 🙂 But don’t expect wonders 😀

  1. Hey Samantha…welcome to IMBB 🙂
    Am using this currently and there is a lot left bec a little does the job well for my dry skin…am not sure how this will work in winters though…but i will keep buying it till then !!!
    The only thing i dont like is the fragrance…and my daug absol refuses to apply this solely bec of the fragrance…
    but smell is individual preferences… :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

    1. Hey Priya :))
      If it works currently for your dry skin, it quite possibly will work in the winters, although depends on whether it becomes really cold out or not. :heh:
      And so totally individual preference! My sister absolutely detests this smell, though my mom and I both love it. Go figure. :haanji:

  2. Wonderful review, :thumbsup: very good for showing the effects of parabens !! But am eyeing Vaseline lotion, the new one with spf 24, so may buy this later.

    1. Thank you Tapaswini! :blush: And Vaseline you’re talking about the Healthy White one, right? That’s also good. It leaves skin pretty soft and not at all sticky. Good for overall use. 🙂

  3. Hey thats a great post…was really useful :))

    @Rati….Hi, I had mailed you a week or so back regarding Sunday Bazaar but sadly am yet to receive a reply from u guys…little disappointed with the reply time!

    1. Thank you VibrantHues! 😀
      And she looked at me for a full two minutes, and even craned her neck till I was out of reach. Now that’s what I call persistence! :toothygrin: 😛

  4. I have a very dry skin and I’m always in search for good moisturizing lotions which will keep my skin soft and supple for a long time.
    Have been using this lotion since a month and I’m in complete awe with it..!!

    1. Its non greasy and absorbs in the skin immediately
    2. Works for a long time ..even in winters. I use it only once after bathing.
    3. Smells good 🙂
    4. Available at an affordable price.

    All in all I’m very happy with this product and would definitely recommend it for people with dry t-extra dry skin ..!!
