First of all, apologies for not writing any review for so long; I had my exams going on and when they got over, I was way too lazy to even start the laptop. And secondly, even though I didn’t post any reviews, I read IMBB everyday and took screenshots of the stuff reviewed here that I wanted to buy as soon as the exams got over. Hehehe! Now coming to the review. Fragrance lotions and body butters are my all time favorite and I just can’t resist myself from hoarding as many of them as I can. The product I am reviewing today is one of my latest obsessions. It’s the “Very Sexy Now” fragrance lotion from none other than Victoria’s Secret. Around two months back when I was browsing the VS website, I came across this lotion and got to know that VS recently changed its packaging to a sultrier one and I had been drooling after this one until the moment I finally got it. This lotion is everything VS claims and much more. Read on to find out how it fared for me.
This luxe lotion moisturizes and drenches the skin with the sultry fragrance you know and love. The rich and soothing formula teases skin with a seductive blend of vanilla orchid, sun-drenched clementine and midnight blackberry.

- Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy fragrance mist.

My Take on Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Fragrance Lotion:
Like I said, I had been drooling over this lotion ever since I saw it online. When I finally got this lotion, I had all the more reasons to obsess over it; with all the gorgeous packaging and the fragrance. The lotion comes in a very, very gorgeous red tube. The golden cap makes it ultra classy. The packaging is totally apt for the name of the lotion *wink*. It has a very sturdy packaging and even though it looks kind of heavy, it’s actually light in weight and travel friendly.
The lotion inside is white in color (like most lotions). But what differentiates it from most lotions is its texture. It’s ultra smooth and soft and totally non greasy. And the fact that it isn’t greasy/oily in texture The texture is just perfect and gives a very luxurious feel. The lotion absorbs very quickly and moisturizes just fine considering the weather these days.
Just a little drop of the lotion is enough to moisturize well, so I am sure this one is going to last for at least six good months. So, this makes it totally worth the price we’re paying for it. The fragrance of this lotion is my most favorite thing about it. It smells of blackberry, vanilla and faintly of flowers too. If I apply this lotion in the morning, its fragrance keeps lingering throughout the day and it makes me feel very confident. This is definitely one of those fragrance lotions that get you a ton of compliments. LOL! Last but not the least, I know it’s just a lotion and that this isn’t even the season for wearing lotions, but this product totally breaks the rules, it serves the purpose of a perfume too.
Pros of Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Fragrance Lotion:
- 200 ml for $20 is actually cheap considering it will last for a long time.
- Serves the purpose of a perfume/mist too because of the fragrance.
- The fragrance lasts on me for a good 5-6 hours.
- Moisturizes the skin just perfectly for this weather.
- Gives a very classy/luxurious feel.
- Non greasy/non oily in texture.
- Last but not the least, it has an amazing fragrance. I mean I would prefer buying a $20 lotion anyday over buying a $50 EDP which smells the same.
Cons of Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Fragrance Lotion:
- Even though it moisturizes perfectly for summer, I wouldn’t really use it for the mere moisturizing purpose in winter since it won’t completely moisturize the extreme dry skin I get in winter. Bummer.
- It’s not available in India.
- People who are looking for a subtle fragrance lotion may skip it.
It’s in fact hard finding many cons in this one. I absolutely love this lotion and it’s one of my go-to’s this season.
