After sampling numerous VS Fantasies lotions, Victoria’s Secret Secret Craving was one of the long overdue “thingamajig” (remember …Ariel, Flounder, Sebastian, pirate’s boot from Little Mermaid…. must watch :P) that I was yet to try. This body lotion felt more like an amalgamation of the fruity and floral notes. So, I picked it up to find out how it fared as a body lotion along with its unique fragrance.
The body lotion comes in the standard VS Fantasies bottle. It has a very pale pink bottle color, which is almost opaque. The body lotion with a flip top nozzle golden hued cap makes it convenient to use. The body lotion is creamy and very light pink in color. It has a floral print to signify the VS fantasies theme of floral and fruity fragrance notes. The key fragrance notes for this body lotion are black currant and vanilla absolute.
$14 for 250 ml bottle. VS Fantasies collection however has frequent discount offers.
My Experience with Victoria’s Secret Secret Craving Body Lotion:
The body lotion has a creamy consistency, but it is easy to apply on the skin. It also gets easily absorbed into the skin. The body lotion provides decent moisturization to my dry skin. I find this body lotion hydrating for summer use, but in winters, I would prefer something more moisturizing.
The body lotion contains aloe vera, oats, grapeseed extract for skin nourishment. Though I did not find any significant improvement in skin texture, it made my skin feel better during the changing climate.The body lotion also contains antioxidants, Vitamin E and C. However, I did not notice any anti-aging benefits while using the body lotion.
Though the body lotion fared okay on my skin, I have second thoughts regarding the fragrance. The fragrance is sweet, but it cannot be easily distinguished as floral or fruity fragrance. It contains keynotes of black currant and vanilla absolute. I could not smell vanilla fragrance very clearly. It has a more fruity fragrance than floral.
The fragrance of the body lotion stays on for quite many hours. However, it is not a very strong fragrance. The same fragrance notes also come in the form of body butter, body scrub and fragrance mist for further layering the notes.

Would I Repurchase Victoria’s Secret Secret Craving Body Lotion?
As a body lotion, it worked okay, but the fragrance was not very appealing to me. I would not buy this product again as VS Fantasies has much better options which I like. Not “secretly craving” this body lotion at all!
