A preventive, curative and healing ayurvedic lotion for dry skin diseases, minor cuts, wounds, chapped skin and cold sores.
Its unique, advanced moisturising formula penetrates deep into the skin and heals dry skin from inside. It replenishes moisture and forms a ‘moisture shield’ on your skin, which leaves you with nourished, soft, smooth and healthy skin. It is enhanced with natural goodness of pure malai, badam, rosewater and saffron.
It comes in a sturdy, white plastic bottle with a green flip-open cap. The packaging makes it travel friendly and very convenient for usage.
Color and Consistency:
It is white in color and fairly thick in consistency.
It has a strong, pleasant fragrance. Sandalwood dominates the fragrance.
My Experience with Himani Boroplus Healthy Skin Advanced Moisturising Lotion:
My mom had got this lotion for herself. I was attracted to it mainly because of its wonderful smell. Also, I found the shape of the bottle quite nice. My mother said her skin stayed wonderfully moisturised for a long time after using the lotion. All this was enough to tempt me to use it.
The lotion is very heavy and thick. It is not so easy to spread and apply it, mainly because it is thick.
However, once applied, it gets absorbed quickly. I was not expecting this from the lotion. I thought it will take a while to get absorbed, but I was surprised to find that it gets absorbed within minutes! However, it makes my skin greasy post application and the greasy residue remains for an hour or so, which according to me, is the biggest drawback of the lotion. It did make my skin soft. That propelled me to use the lotion again, despite the oily, greasy feeling. So, I used it the next day or rather, the next night. I woke up with really soft and smooth skin. The fragrance was as fresh and as strong as it was the night before.
I used it for another 2 or 3 days and then stopped using it altogether. However, my mother religiously used it till the bottle was almost over. She told me that once ¾th of the lotion was over, it was very difficult to get it out of the bottle. I guess that is because of its thick consistency. She had to repeatedly thump the bottle on her palm to dispense the lotion. That annoyed her and she gave up after 2 consecutive trials and threw the bottle into the bin, even though it had quite some product left.
Anyway, let me sum up the pros and cons of this body lotion for you:
Pros of Himani Boroplus Healthy Skin Advanced Moisturising Lotion:
- It is enriched with a lot of natural ingredients.
- It is inexpensive.
- The packaging makes it travel friendly and convenient for usage.
- It has a wonderful fragrance.
- It does what it claims, i.e., makes the skin soft and smooth.
- The fragrance is long lasting.
- It gets absorbed quickly.
Cons of Himani Boroplus Healthy Skin Advanced Moisturising Lotion:
- It is fairly thick in consistency.
- It takes time to spread.
- It leaves a greasy residue post absorption.
- It is difficult to dispense the remnant product once 3/4th of it has been used.
- Since it makes skin greasy, it is not suitable for daytime usage.
- Some might not like the strong fragrance.
- I have not come across this lotion everywhere, not seen it in malls, mostly seen it at grocery stores, so availability might be an issue.
- I have not tried this on any cuts, wounds or cold sores, so I cannot comment upon its claim to heal those.
Will I Buy Himani Boroplus Healthy Skin Advanced Moisturising Lotion Again?
No, I won’t. This is too oily and greasy for my oily skin.
Will I Recommend Himani Boroplus Healthy Skin Advanced Moisturising Lotion?
Those with dry or very dry skin will benefit using this lotion, since it is creamy and will moisturise their skin well. Those with combination to oily and oily skin can give it a miss.
