Product Purchased by IMBB
I am back with yet another review and this time it is Lotus Herbals Vanilla Velvet Daily Body Lotion. I had run out of my beloved Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Glow so just for fun, I wanted to try something new. When IMBB gave me a thumbs up for a sponsored haul, this is the first body lotion that I came across and thought of giving it a shot. So, let us see how this one fared.
Lotus Herbals Vanilla Velvet Daily Body Lotion is a combination of the moisturizing properties of avocado, soy and vanilla to give the body an intensive hydration along with a silky feel. It leaves skin soft, smooth and healthy.
Direction for Use:
Apply liberally all over the body. It is ideal to be used after a shower or bath on damp/skin for softening and sealing in the moisture. It focus on dry or stressed areas such as elbows, heels and knees. It can be used any time your skin is feeling particularly parched and dry.
Comforts dry skin leaving it smooth and soft & refreshed.
Rs.195 for 250ml
My Experience with Lotus Herbals Vanilla Velvet Daily Body Lotion:
The lotion comes in a yellow coloured plastic bottle with a pump dispenser which helps in easy usage of the product. The dispenser has arrows on it to indicate the close and the open end. Thus, it helps to prevent any accidental product spillage. The bottle is translucent and when held against a source of light, the amount of product inside can be known. It has a sticker attached at the front and the back with purple accents which adds a touch of prettiness to the bottle and gives full details about the complete list of ingredients, date of mfg., shelf life, etc.
The body lotion has a soothing vanilla fragrance that is pretty gentle and would not feel nauseous to sensitive noses, I promise. The intensity of the fragrance disappears within 15- 20 minutes post application and later on can only be felt if we bring our noses close to the skin.
The lotion is pure white in colour and comes out a little thick when pumped out of the bottle but when applied it spreads very quickly and gets absorbed within minutes without leaving behind an annoying oily cast on the skin. I generally apply it post shower when my skin is still a little damp. It helps in sealing in the moisture for the rest of the day without feeling greasy and sticky, which is a plus point in this humid monsoon season in Kolkata.
It offers a pretty good moisturization throughout the day and there is rarely any need for reapplication. But for overly dry skin in winters, reapplication would be called for after every 4 -5 hours. The only big con that I faced with this one is the lack of SPF as that means I need to layer on a sunblock along with this and I hate to layer products.
Pros of Lotus Herbals Vanilla Velvet Daily Body Lotion:
- Easily available.
- Easy to use pump dispenser.
- Soothing vanilla fragrance.
- Gets absorbed quickly.
- Does not leave an oily film on the skin.
- Offers moisturisation throughout the day and there is rarely any need for reapplication
Cons of Lotus Herbals Vanilla Velvet Daily Body Lotion:
- Really wish it had some SPF in it.
- May not be well suited for overly dry skin in winters.
Would I Recommend Lotus Herbals Vanilla Velvet Daily Body Lotion?
Overall, I quite liked this product and it would be a good buy for girls on the lookout for a decent body lotion for regular use. I totally recommend this product as it has the perfect blend of affordability, availability and functionality and would not be a disappointment for anybody.
