My Experience with Watsons Aloe Fresh Hydrating Body Lotion:
The packaging of the body lotion is nice and eye catching. It comes in a light green colored inverted plastic bottle. The bottle bears a label at its back bearing the entire necessary information about the product. It has a large turquoise blue colored flip top cap that fits nicely and keeps the bottle leak-proof. The packaging is definitely very nice and sturdy. But, this huge 532ml bottle is really very bulky to carry around. Therefore, it is not very travel friendly. I wish they offered various size options.
The body lotion is a greenish-white coloured liquid with medium thick consistency. The body lotion has a typical aloe fragrance that is very pleasant to sniff. The smell is not too strong or bothersome. The typical aloe vera fragrance is so calming and relaxing. I totally love the fragrance of this body lotion. The smell lingers for quite some time; later on it can be sniffed only very close to the skin. I think this is a good option for people who like mild fragrances.
The consistency of this lotion is pretty thick as compared to those Vaseline ones. So, I feel this is a good option for dry skin. The lotion spreads very nicely on the skin within no time but it requires a little massaging for about a minute to get absorbed into the skin nicely. Once it is fully absorbed, it does not leave any oily sheath behind. There is no slippery feel left behind. It does not make my skin greasy even in hot and humid summers.
So, it is definitely a perfect body lotion for summers. But, it might not provide the adequate amount of moisturization and hydration to dry skin in harsh winters. Also, the product does not come with any SPF which limits its use to indoors only. The formula is really moisturising for my dry skin. It keeps my skin moisturised and hydrated for some 5-6 hours of application and my super dry skin seeks a reapplication after that.
