I am totally in love with I love…strawberry face mask. So, when I saw “I love..Strawberries and Milk Shake” Body Lotion on an e-shopping site, it was love at first sight. The cute bottle with pink lotion and hearts on it was impossible to resist. I went ahead and put it in my cart without as much a second thought.
Rs. 229 for 250 ml.
Directions For Use:
Squeeze me generously into the palm of your hand and massage me all over your body to leave your skin fabulously moisturized, silky smooth and beautifully fragranced.. I love…a word of caution; please avoid contact with the eyes. If you happen to get me into your eyes, thoroughly wash me with water immediately. Warning: I am for external use only. Keep me out of reach of children. For adult use only.
My Experience with I Love Strawberries and Milkshake Moisturising Body Lotion:
The packaging is absolutely attractive. The lotion comes in a sturdy transparent bottle with a pump to dispense the lotion, but because it comes in a pump bottle and there is no cap over, it is not at all travel friendly, but hey, who actually travels with a 250 ml body lotion bottle! When I had just bought this lotion and it was sitting pretty on the dressing table, my husband walked into the room picked up the bottle and was like “Oh wow! Strawberry milkshake in a pump bottle! Interesting!” *hihi* *hihi*
Now, back to the review. The lotion is a cute shade of very light pale pink (okay, all shades of light pink are cute). The fragrance, it actually smells like strawberry milkshake! It smells so much like actual milkshake; it’s difficult to resist tasting it ‘;) The lotion has a very light texture and though the fragrance lasts for 3-4 hours after application, somehow, it does not smell as pleasant as it smells in the bottle. The original strawberry milkshake fragrance that is there in the bottle disappears once it touches the skin. After application, it neither smells like strawberries nor strawberry milkshake. So, I am a tad disappointed with this aspect. The moisturizing ability of this lotion is decent. I have dry skin and though the texture of this lotion is light, once applied, it keeps my skin moisturized for 6-7 hours without re-application. I use it during the day time since I prefer heavier lotions at night. However, a big negative in using this as a day lotion is that there is no SPF in this and like I mentioned in one of my previous reviews, I am very particular about having SPF content in my day moisturizers/lotions. All in all, I would say that this is an average product.
The print on the product is very tiny. So, it was difficult to capture the text on camera; however, I have tried my best to do so:

Would I Repurchase I Love Strawberries and Milkshake Moisturising Body Lotion?
No. I had bought it mainly for the fragrance. I am disappointed with the transformation in fragrance from “oh so yummy” fragrance to “not sure what is this” fragrance.
