The product for review today is Victoria’s Secret Room 504 Nourishing Body Cream.
I was actually searching online for a good body cream for the winters when I saw this. I always wanted Victoria’s secret products so I thought let’s start with this one. Let’s see how it fared!
200 ml/6.7 FL OZ
12 $ but I got it online for Rs. 500.
This is the part which I hate because this cream contains such horrendous chemicals, But more about that later. I thought of providing a picture of the ingredients rather than writing such a long list but I thought nobody would read it from the picture.

What the company claims:

Relive the moment with this fragrant body cream, a sensuous path to soft, touchable skin. Infused with our signature trio of skin-nourishing botanicals: antioxidant white tea and moisture rich rice and white lily milks for healthy looking skin.
My experience with Victoria’s Secret Room 504 Nourishing Body Cream:
I will share the truth with you all. My skin becomes very dry during winters and this cream is perfect for winters. Its hydrating power is amazing and lasts for long too. The smell is just ok but not the fragrance which I would expect from Victoria’s secret. Everybody will not appreciate this smell. Now I will come to the thing which kept me from using this cream, it is the ingredients!!!!The long list of chemicals that are in this cream including urea and parabens and methicones and mineral oil. This cream also contains many colors which are the last three ingredients in the list. Even though I never intended to use it on my face but I just cannot imagine applying urea on my body. Even though it contains many natural ingredients also, but they just cannot overcome the chemicals. So the last word is…here are many natural body lotions available in the market which are way cheaper than this and do their job wonderfully. So, I will not like to advice this cream to anybody.
Pros of Victoria’s Secret Room 504 Nourishing Body Cream:
1) Extremely hydrating.
2) Smell is okay…Some may like it.
3) No greasiness after some time.
Cons of Victoria’s Secret Room 504 Nourishing Body Cream:
1) Contains parabens, cones, colors, urea etc which is a major no-no for me.
2) Not available easily.
3) Expensive ( personally I think there are many good body creams available which are cheaper than this and do their job wonderfully).
4) No SPF.
I had so many expectations from this cream but I am just disappointed. Very very disappointed. I checked the other fragrances of this cream and all contain these chemicals.
2/5 (2 marks for the hydrating properties).
