Winters are on and so is my hunt for a perfect body lotion. I have oily-combination skin on the face and normal to dry skin on my body. So, it is mandatory for me to moisturize after shower. I picked this up from an online shopping website. I have used a variety of body lotions. Read on to find out my experience with this one!
Product Description from the Website:

Skin-conditioning almond oil and glycerine leave skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturised. Enriched with organic bergamot and sweet orange essential oils, which eliminate toxins and help to de-stress.

My Take on Organic Surge Tropical Bergamot Body Lotion:
The first thing that I noticed on opening the tube was the citrus-y smell! I have never used a body lotion which smells of oranges and lemons. On squeezing the lotion out of the tube, I realized I should call this a cream and not a lotion. It was that thick! The color of this lotion (err or should I say cream?) is white. I applied some on my arms after shower and massaged it into my skin. The smell of this lotion gives an instant fresh feeling. Also, I realized that I didn’t have to massage it too much to get it absorbed into my skin.
I simply rubbed it for about four to five times, and my skin drank up the entire thing! I was surprised as to how such a thick lotion can get absorbed so quickly, while some of my lotions, despite being runny takes time to get absorbed! My arms remained moisturized throughout the day! To check its moisturizing capacity, I kept drawing small scratches on my arms to see a white line, but could not find one! I know, silly me ;-P My hands become dry after shower, so a good moisturizer is mandatory, but sadly, the beautiful smell of this lotion did not even last for 30 minutes, (but I am not worried about that). This is by far the best moisturizer that I have used! Also, it’s the best moisturizer for winters for me. I might even use this during summers, since it gets absorbed very quickly 😉
Look how thick this lotion is.
Though the lotion is thick, it blends quite easily!
This is how my hands look after massaging the lotion into my skin (not a trace of greasiness!).
Overall, I am in love with this product!! Now, coming to the pros and cons of this lotion.
