As I told you my mom loves this entire range, so we got a big kit from them. This is the last thing that is left to be reviewed so thougth of picking this up since I have been using this for winter. Although I am not a big fan of floral fragrances, I pretty much liked this body lotion, so using it every-day. So let’s see what all I liked about this one.

My experience withMarks & Spencer Magnolia Moisturizing Hand and Body Lotion
I think this range and the entire floral collection is designed for people who love pure floral fragrances, people who love fruity ones will like these products only for a few days because after all you have that fruity craving again. This one is a travel size and pretty small so it is great for travelling and you do not have to carry those big bottles during outings in winters. The packaging is very attractive and decent being white in colour with a big picture of flower and leaves over it. It is inverted and the cap is a turn around one which is transparent and there is a small hole for the product to come out. The lotion comes in a light lemon yellow colour but I suppose we cannot call it a lotion, because lotions are always runny and this is moderately thick and not runny at all. By looking at it only we can imagine how hydrating and moisturising it would be. Not only by looks but it actually was. It glided very smoothly on my skin and a very little amount is needed for the body except the fall part because they have instructed not to use it on the face. The fragrance is very very fresh and as I said it feels like you are offering fresh flowers in the temple. It smells like a blend of mogra, lily and periwinkle. It lasts on the skin for about an hour because the fragrance is not that wild, it is a mild one.It absorbs as soon as it is applied and there is no need to massage it. I like that it did not make my skin any oily or greasy but I do not think it will be suitable for people who have very dry skin especially during summers. Overall I loved how it made my skin so soft but I think I can never become loyal to floral fragrances.

Will I repurchase/ recommend Marks & Spencer Magnolia Moisturizing Hand and Body lotion?
Yes, it is great for daily application and people who like floral fragrance will love this as the smell is very fresh but I think people like me who like fruity fragrances will get irritated with this smell in a few days. I observed that this is the best product in the entire range so far from the 5 products that I have used from this range, so if you want to invest in this range the surely go for this one.
