I’m writing review after a long time but I wanted to share a very important experience I had. First the good news..I’m 4 months pregnant and just like every mother I want to protect my baby from all the bad things. Since I can’t give up lotions and shampoos, I decided to find some SLS free shampoos and Paraben free creams and face wash for myself. After going through all the brands I was disappointed that to name a few even oriflame, Johnson & Johnson and Body Shop products contains SLS and Paraben.
So just by chance I went to Faces store and found this awesome range of SLS free, paraben free and mineral oil free products. Fruit Frappe is the new line, a blend of 10 antioxidant superfruits. It comes in 5 yummy scents: Passion Fruit with Noni, Grapefruit with Gooseberry, Apricot with Kiwi, Pear with Mangosteen and Watermelon with Acai berry.
Product Description: Treat your skin to a fruity oasis. Shea butter and 10 antioxidant superfruits are what your body needs everyday to stay young and beautiful. Smooth all over day and night for silky, soft, sweet smelling skin.
Ingredient List: Water, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Glycerine, Caprylic, Dimethicone, Isopropyl Palmitate, Stearic Acid, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-20, Cetyl Alcohol, Fragrance, Passion Fruit extract, Gooseberry, apricot, Mangosteen, Watermelon, Kiwi, Pear, Acai, Noni and Grapefruit fruit extract, Vit E, Benzophenone-3, Acrylates, Triethanolamine, Tetrasodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, DMDM Hydantoin, Red 33, Blue 1.
Packaging: It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a pump in vibrant fruity colors on the bottle. It’s very hygienic as you can just press the pump to get the required quantity and also you can see the amount left in the bottle unlike other lotion bottles (Vaseline, Jergens) where you have no clue how much cream is left.
Price: INR 699 for 300 ml (10 fl. Oz.)
My experience with Upper Canada Fruit Frappe Lotion:
All the lotions in this range have really strong fruity smell. So I went with passion fruit which had relatively soft smell and it wasn’t too fruity. It’s of runny consistency and very easy and smooth to apply. So only a small drop is required in every use. The smell is strong when you put it on but gradually it reduces and lingers on. If I apply it in morning I can still smell it on my hand at night. It gives a very pleasant fragrance and feeling. It leaves my skin hydrated and soft.
Pros of Upper Canada Fruit Frappe Lotion:
• A soothing everyday moisturizer to hydrate and soften the skin
• Leaves skin soft, smooth, silky and lightly fragranced which stays on whole day.
• Only small drop is required every time and hence one bottle will last for long
• The packaging is very light, easy to use and hygienic as you don’t have to dip your fingers to take out the lotion.
Cons of Upper Canada Fruit Frappe Lotion:
• The only Con I can think of is that I don’t know how to lock the pump. So can’t carry it while travelling. But no issues, I don’t think I’ll be travelling much now!! 😉
• Also price might be an issue for some people but the price range is similar to Body Shop lotions and there is an additional benefit here since Body Shop products contains paraben.
Conclusion: I’m in love with this lotion and would love to try other flavors of body lotion as well as their body mist. Also, I’m relieved that I was able to find a good product which is Paraben free and glad that my search ends here. So I recommend it to everyone especially all the mom- to-be’s who wants to avoid parabens during their pregnancy.
