Lotus Herbals Almond Nourish Body Nourishing Body Lotion SPF 20
Cost: 225 for 300ml
What Lotus says: AlmondNourish Daily Nourishing Body Lotion with SPF 20, is a nourishing moisturizer enriched with the goodness of Almond oil that moisturises and nourishes your skin. Almond oil is rich in Vitamin E that helps in delaying the ageing process, it also aids in improving the overall complexion and skin tone.
Skin type: Normal to combination
My take: I picked this up because I wanted something nourishing and nice smelling. Almonds are known to improve skin texture. This is one humongous bottle, and I like its pump style dispenser. The packaging is so-so, but then I’ve never liked Lotus’ packaging much. It never looked classy to me, which is one reason why I stayed away from Lotus, thinking it cheap. It is only the reviews on IMBB and other sites that have made me reconsider . 🙂
Fragrance: This has a nice, inoffensive fragrance, kinda nutty and ‘almondy’ (but of course) but it has faintly artificial overtones too. Not overpowering enough to be a problem though. It doesn’t linger very long, which I don’t mind, as strong scents give me a headache. The Aloe Vera moisturizer from the same range has a stronger, more lasting scent (also pleasant).
Consistency: It is very thick. I could cut it with a knife, almost. And it takes ages blending into skin. Since I am nearly always in a hurry, this is a drawback for me. Also, it is a bit difficult to work with, which means you have to apply the product generously to cover all the areas you wish to. And for all the thickness, it is not as moisturizing as it ought to be.
This is after rubbing in some 10 times!
Performance: This is crux of my problem with this moisturizer. It is so thick that you would expect superb moisturizing pay-off. Nope. It performs very ordinarily, I would even say, less than ordinarily. It is sticky without any softening effect whatsoever. It prevents my skin from drying up – just about. But the moisture is not retained very long, and there is no discernable difference in my skin post application, even many days on. My basic no-frills Nivea moisturizer works better than this.
Pros of Lotus Herbals Almond Nourish Body Nourishing Body Lotion – SPF 20

• Hygienic pump dispenser
• Reasonable cost
• Sizeable quantity
Cons of Lotus Herbals Almond Nourish Body Nourishing Body Lotion – SPF 20

Would I buy this again: I am in love with the concept of an almond nourishing product, but no. Would rather shell out the extra bucks and buy myself the Neutrogena lotion, which I adore!
