Hello my dear ladies,
I am back again with my favourite brand Victoria’s Secret. I recently went to the Beauty Shop and oh my God, their shelf displays are so damn attractive that none of us could return without getting anything and you know how VS and BBW stuff looks, can’t resist, right? They had like 30 different mists and almost 20 body lotions and then body scrubs, perfumes and everything that just belongs to this girly brand. So, I picked up many things from VS and here is one of them.
Indulge in Romantic wish, a tempting blend of freesia and cucumber blossom. This intensive hand and body cream from our classics collection is fortified with replenishing avocado and sweet almond oils, plus hydrating honey. Massage on for rich, 24-hour moisture, focusing on dry, rough areas. Skin feels soft, smooth and touchable. Live out your beauty fantasy in our most popular scented body care, exclusively at Victoria’s Secret.
How To Use:
Victoria’s Secret romantic wish can be used as a daily moisturizer. It can be used a base moisturizer and layer it with your daily makeup. It can also be used as an after shower body moisturizer.
My Experience with Victoria’s Secret Romantic Wish Hand and Body Cream:
Without talking much about the most feminine brand, I will straight on move to the review of this amazing body cream from VS. The main reason I pick their stuff is due to their glamorous packaging. This cream comes in a glorious pink packaging with a metallic finish and its really easy to spot such girly stuff on the shelves, at least in my case. The cap is a flip open one and does not break my nails. This is a huge tube, so cannot be carried around for re-application; however, if you are going out of town, then this is pretty travel friendly. Now, this one belongs to the classics collection from VS, so the availability is limited. VS has such a huge range of such lotions and creams, so it is very difficult to pick one, as all the fragrances are equally great, so I ended up getting a few of them.
This cream has a thick consistency and it is more like a body butter rather than a cream or a lotion. The cream is a light baby pink colour, but it looks white in the pictures. Even though thick in consistency, it glides very smoothly on the skin and does not leave the skin greasy or oily. As soon as you apply, it gets absorbed. The fragrance is a very romantic one as the name suggests and also feminine. The fragrance is like a blend of red fruits specially cherries and watermelon and it is indeed super fruity. This would be a great buy for people who love fruity fragrances. The scent is pretty sweet and you will somehow relate it to strawberries or raspberries, but not exactly the same.
The fragrance lasts for like 3 hours on my skin revealing the sweet scent and if layered up with other products from the “Romantic Wish” range, it would easily last for 6-7 hours because the mists are very strong. The main con with this one is that it does not have any SPF and for Mumbai summers, its a big no no. However, I would adjust a bit in winters. It keeps my skin hydrated all day even in winters, but obviously, you need to reapply after 4 hours or so to make it smell fresh again. I can term it as a very good pick for people who like wearing romantic fragrances.
Pros of Victoria’s Secret Romantic Wish Hand and Body Cream:
- Good amount of quantity provided, will last for 6 months at least.
- Very attractive packaging.
- Texture is like body butter, so only a little is needed each time.
- The fragrance is a very feminine and fruity one and smells like cherries and watermelon.
- The fragrances lasts for 3 hours on the skin and even more if used along with the “Romantic Wish” range of products.
- The body cream is very moisturizing and hydrating for the skin and is very good for winters as well.
- Does not leave a greasy film behind and gets absorbed almost instantly.
Cons of Victoria’s Secret Romantic Wish Hand and Body Cream:
- Does not have SPF.
- Limited availability.
Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Victoria’s Secret Romantic Wish Hand and Body Cream?
Yes, I would surely recommend it to those who love feminine and fruity fragrances and also because the packaging is irresistible. I don’t think I will pick it again because there are so many VS lotions, so I would love to try something different.
