Review for Victoria's Secret Pink Sun Kissed Body Mist 8.4oz - 6 days, 12 hours ago
I have been really into this “PINK” range and want to try more and more. This is my 2nd or 3rd product from this range and I intend to try many more.
The VS pink mist comes in a totally different packaging than the usual VS ones. This one looks like a superior version of the mists and I love how they have kept the “PINK” range different. It comes in a super fat, peach-orange bottle which looks absolutely gorgeous with polka dots over it. The name of the mist is in big fonts which makes it look better.It is a bit fat and a little heavy, but totally travel-friendly. The nozzle is great in quality and better than the plastic ones in the other VS mists. It is more like a perfume nozzle than a mist. I absolutely adore the packaging because it looks so refreshing, cute and beachy.

The scent is so much different than what I have tried earlier. It has a super fresh and a summery scent of creamy coconuts which are very dominant, but I can see amazing frosty scents of sugar which add the needed sweetness to the usual coconut scent. I love how they added this sweetness to break that total coconut monotony. Are VS mists complete without such sweet hints? This mist creates a very positive aura around me and instantly perks me up. It nicely creates a very good mood and it is a great option to go for when I am bored with the usual VS scents.

The scent is great for daytime and summer season because the packaging and the scent both are also very beachy. The fragrance will definitely transfer anyone to a holiday vacation where you are relaxing on a beach with coconut water. The notes finally settle down to a very musky scent with hints of coconut that linger around till the next day. I love how they have created a sweet coconut scent because coconuts are not everyone’s cup of tea, but this is something that most of the people might love.

The scent stays better on my clothes as compared to my skin. It stays for around 2-3 hours on clothes and then a mild musky fragrance lingers around till the next day on my clothes and skin. I am disappointed with the lasting power since the usual VS mists last more than this. I expected it to be a better version and hence with a good lasting power. But whenever I am carrying it around, I really don’t mind re-spraying it.

Review for Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion - 1 week, 4 days ago

Wellness Guru Expert Level 1

I received this body lotion as a Christmas gift, along with several other lotions. This one came from Bath & Body Works, which is a specialty store that sells bath and body products as well as candles and other products. These products can be on the pricey side, but they are always running special deals and always have coupons so you can get a discount on their products. I always love getting products from Bath & Body Works as gifts, and occasionally I will splurge on something for myself. The reason I love their lotions is because they are highly scented, and the fragrance lasts quite a long time compared to other lotions on the market.

This particular scent, Japanese Cherry Blossom, is one of the most popular, and for good reason. The scent is very pleasant, a bit floral, yet exotic and rich. I use this lotion in conjunction with the body wash (which also smells amazing) and the scent lingers all day. I have a bottle of this lotion on my desk as well, so I can apply it to my hands throughout the day for extra moisturizing and a pleasant scent. Almost every time I apply it, I get asked by co-workers what that lovely smell is.I usually apply lotion all over my body after a shower. This lotion is good at moisturizing, although not the very best. It seems that the best moisturizers seem to be the ones that have no scent or that smell bad. If my skin is particularly dry and I am in need of additional moisture, I will apply an unscented thicker cream first and then follow up with this lotion. I only use this lotion on my body, never my face. Because of the high perfume level, I am afraid it would cause my skin to react. Plus, it is not designed to be used on the face, just the body. For areas that need extra help, like heels and elbows, this lotion isn’t sufficient. But for everyday moisturizing, it’s fine. I primarily use it for the scent.

The bottle I receives was 8oz, a nice size that you can even put into your purse if you want to take it with you. The packaging is very pretty with shiny reds and pale pink flowers. This lotion truly feels like an indulgence, although it’s not super expensive. I would recommend this lotion to anyone who wants to moisturize and smell great at the same time. When paired with the body wash, it will leave you skin feeling and smelling great for hours! This product also makes a great gift for birthdays or other holidays, and is available in gift baskets as well.

The “Velvet sugar” range is rated as one of the best scents that Bath and body works has to offer, so how could I miss it? Hence, I got this super cute lotion to try Packaging: The B&BW velvet sugar lotion comes in a very pretty bottle loaded with baby pink coloured lotion. It is accompanied with a metallic pink cap which makes it look even more gorgeous. The bottle has a perfect girly label with heart and coloured laces over it. It also has a cute pink cushion couch in the background. I love how B&BW keeps the packaging always so attractive. The bottle is loaded with the cream and the quantity is great, but it is light-weight and hence can be easily carried around in the bag. The cap opens and closes with a press hence no worries of it spilling around!

The lotion comes in a very cute baby pink colour. The consistency is neither thick nor runny. It is just perfect as a body cream especially for winters. It comes out smooth and gets layered on my skin even smoother. It feels a little cool when I apply it. I don’t have to massage it a lot because it gets absorbed almost instantly during the colder days. But during the summers, it might feel a little heavy and greasy on the skin initially.

The scent is definitely the best part about BB&W lotions! Oh my God, the scent just transferred me to a different world! It transferred me to a world of creams and strawberries where the little strawberry shortcake lives. The smell is extremely fruity, sugary and sweet. It opens up with a sweet scent of wild strawberries like a strawberry milkshake loaded with frosty sugar. And I can eat it with a red velvet cake. That is what the blend is about. It has fresh and frosty hints of freesia and plums which makes it a better scent for me. The base is a creamy amber vanilla one which adds that muskiness to the fragrance. The scent is extremely girly and people around will like smelling you! It is a perfect one for summers and winters too! But it is a scent which is very syrupy and not everyone will like this. It portrays a very fun, crazy girly image of a woman. The scent screams that the girl will do what she wants, and does what she loves to do. It so screams my personality 

It gives an instant boost of hydration to my skin which makes my skin look fresh and bouncy. I can feel the softness and the supple touch after using this. It keeps my skin hydrated for 7-8 hours and then a little re-application is needed. It is good for winters too as it works good for normal and dry skin both. The scent stays for 2-3 hours and then only a faint scent lingers on my skin.
Overall, I am loving all the wintery lotions from Bath and body works and now I am going to start stocking up on summery scents now!

Review for Victoria's Secret Love Spell Body Lotion - 4 months ago

Come winter and all our body butters body lotions come out. I love buying/colleting nice smelling body lotions and Victoria Secret being a brand not easily available in India, I try to get these products from US whenever I can. So today’s product the VS Love spell Body lotion was part of the gift set I gave to my sister which includes body wash, body lotion and body mist. Recently when she was at my place I got to know her opinion on this product and also tried my hand on it.
A flirty, floral fragrance. Hypnotize in Love Spell, a vibrant, irresistible blend of lush cherry blossom and juicy peach. Experience the luxury of fragrant hydration. Fast-absorbing formula contains nourishing aloe, oat and grapeseed extracts, plus antioxidant vitamins E and C. Massage on for silky, replenishing moisture. Skin feels soft, smooth and touchable the ultimate sexy sensation.

My take on Victoria’s Secret Love Spell Cherry Blossom and Peach Hydrating Body Lotion:As I experienced with other Victoria Secret Body lotion before, this body lotion is also equally moisturizing. It keeps skin hydrated in winters too. But me and my sister none of us have dry skin so I can’t tell how good it will be for extremely dry skin in winters. But for normal to dry skin it has sufficient hydration. It has goodness of aloe, oat, apple and grape seed oil. Consistency wise it’s not very thick neither very runny, and it gets absorbed in skin easily without making it feel greasy.

If talking about the smell, it has fruity + floral smell. Where fruity smell is more dominating, it’s a great mix of sweet + citrusy smell. So people who like citrusy smell or sweet fruity smell both will like it. The fragrance lasts for good 3-4 hours on skin, and as smell settles down it smells more flowery then fruity. If the body wash, lotion and mist all are used from same range then the smell lasts all day long. This gift set comes in a nice hand bag (violet bag with golden detailing) so a great option for gifting.

 If you love nice smelling hydrating body lotion or you are fan of VS do try this body lotion. :)

Review for Bath & Body Works Fresh Sparkling Snow - 4 months ago

Today, I have another body lotion for you all from Bath and Body Works. Don’t worry, this is the last of the lot (I guess so  ).

America’s #1 Body Lotion! Infused with Shea Butter and our exclusive Daily Moisture Complex, our enhanced lotion contains more of what skin loves, leaving it feeling incredibly soft, smooth and nourished. Fortified with nutrient-rich ingredients like protective Vitamin E and conditioning Vitamin B5, our fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula delivers 16 hours of continuous moisture.
Starting with the packaging – Bath and Body Works Fresh Sparkling Snow body lotion comes in a transparent plastic bottle. The bottle has a push-top cap. The bottle is sturdy, but huge to be carried along during travels. This fragrance, sadly, does not come in travel size. The packaging is quite simple compared to other fragrances that I have reviewed recently. It has a simple “glittery snowflakes and flower design” against a blue background with a shiny silver cap. The packaging is very simple and functional.
The consistency of the body lotion is medium, neither very thick nor very runny. It spreads well and gets absorbed easily into the skin. The lotion does not leave my skin greasy, but very smooth, moisturized and hydrated. Bath and Body Works claims that the body lotion provides moisture for 16 hours and it does keep my dry skin hydrated for the whole day without making it greasy at all. Dry areas of my body like elbows, knees and feet do need an additional dose after some time.

The product which I am going to share with you all today, is another new launch from Nivea. Nivea Body Lotion Extra Whitening Cell Repair aqnd UV Protect SPF 15 (quite a mouthful).  Disclaimer : I do not encourage any kind of whitening products. The Ingredients (50X Vitamin C, a natural remedy for tan), is what attracted me towards it.  I do not have much tan, but a bit of unevenness is always there, if you are an active working female, and basically I purchased it to reduce it.  Let us move on without further ado and find out how it fared on me.

I had used the earlier whitening version of Nivea Body Lotion and it worked fairly well for me as a good body lotion, but did not do much as far as the tanning part was concerned. As far as the whitening claims are concerned, it is something which should be ignored without any further thought.  This new version, however, claims to be paraben, bleach and mineral oil free (wow! I was actually very happy to see that) and claims to whiten (please read “even tone” wherever whitening is mentioned) and smoothen the skin in 14 days (now this is one tall claim).  It comes in a flip top bottle. The cap shuts tightly after use, so there is no scope of leakage at all. The small and medium size are easy enough to fit in your hand bag, so this is one travel friendly product.

This Nivea Body Lotion is paraben, mineral oil, colorant and bleach free. You can check that from the ingredients. So, for me, it was a winner from the moment I checked this *happydance*.It smells almost the same as the Nivea Whitening Lotion, just a bit more floral and a bit citrusy, but the notes are more or less the same, traditional Nivea. I am not complaining as I love the smell of Nivea body products.  The body lotion is of a consistency between thick and thin, more on the thin side, and is white coloured.

As far as the fairness claims are concerned, I do not believe in it, but yes, I do see a bit of evenness on my hands after 7 days of use. Not dramatic, but yes to some extent. Although I must say that it did not do anything for the pathetic tan on my feet, sigh, nothing works there *sob* ( I soon have to figure out some routine for my feet, they are becoming UGLY kind of ugly *scared* ). With continued usage, it will give better results and I am not complaining, because this does not use harsh chemical agents to produce quick results, so, I guess by the time this bottle shall be over, it shall make quite a difference to my body.

Review for: Pure Beige
Flawless. Fresh, breathing, natural skin. Shade-true gel-liquid foundation. SPF 18*.  New shades formulated for women of colour, with 5D Pigment Technology.  It’s face makeup that fits you. No oils, no waxes, no nonsense. Natural, light to medium coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be. Fresh, breathing, flawless. Exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin’s natural highs and lows to show through.  New shades formulated specifically for women of color contain revolutionary 5-D pigment technology to balance your skin’s authentic tones and highlights.  Available in 18 Breathable Shades. SPF 18*
Apply evenly to your face and blend with your fingertips.
I think I share a love-hate relationship with this foundation.  I have had it with me for almost ten months now and I have used it on several occasions across many seasons, so I think I will be able to make up my mind about how I feel about it now.
For one, I love the chic glass bottle that it comes in. I believe that the UK version of this foundation comes with a pump (I’m not entirely sure, but I think it does). I have the US version of the bottle and it comes with a regular screw cap, which of course makes it harder to use. But I think the packaging looks sleek and classy.

Review for AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion - 4 months, 2 weeks ago
I do love cold weather because it makes snuggling in my warm bed feel better than ever, and I can wear my jackets and wintery clothes and such…but it also brings about something that I really dislike which is dry, rough, flaky skin. So I turn to my trusty Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
Aveeno daily Moisturizing Lotion is naturally nourishing lotion contains Natural Colloidal Oatmeal blended with rich emollients and is now proven to help skin build a “moisture reserve,” so skin can replenish itself. Its fast-absorbing formula helps prevent and protect dry skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and naturally healthy looking. It’s fragrance free, non-greasy, noncomedogenic and gentle enough for everyday use – good for sensitive skin.
According to Aveeno, the natural colloidal oatmeal ingredient in this product aids in leaving a sort of protective barrier on the skin, to prevent water loss and therefore retain moisture. Aveeno also recommends their ‘oatmeal’ line to those with very dry, sensitive skin. That would be me!
Having had extra dry, sensitive skin since birth, I guess I’ve become a bit of a lotion connoisseur. I have tried out a lot of products and this lotion of one of my great finds.
The Aveeno lotion is fragrance free. I prefer my body lotions to be unscented since I find that fragrance free lotions less likely to irritate my sensitive skin. Also, I often use perfume, so I don’t want the scent of my body lotion to conflict with that of my perfume.It’s gentle to my skin. This did not cause any irritations or reactions at all. I also have a small spot of eczema on my hand and this lotion does not aggravate it. This doesn’t cause any acne on my back either, like some products sometimes do.It doesn’t have a very sticky texture. Some heavy-duty lotions still feel sticky on my skin even if it’s already been more than 5 minutes after application. This does not. I wouldn’t say that it sinks into the skin immediately, but my skin feels soft and supple, instead of greasy, by the time I’ve finished my beauty routine.Actually does what it promises to do, which is to relieve my extra dry skin and keep it feeling moisturized for most of the day. It’s really more moisturizing that most drugstore lotions that I’ve tried, and I find that I only have to reapply at night, or for especially dry spots like elbows, etc, I just apply halfway through the day.Is packaged in a bottle with pump, which I find more hygienic to use than a jar.Is relatively affordable. The 18 fl oz (532 ml) bottle is priced at $10.99 or approximately Rp. 500. This bottle is huge. I can use it daily for about 5 or 6 months before I run out. Smaller sizes are also available.

Review for Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream - 4 months, 2 weeks ago

Wellness Guru Expert Level 1
My aunt got this cream for me from USA which was recommended to her by a dermatologist and I must say this is one of the best moisturizing cream for very dry and sensitive skin.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream is clinically proven to provide immediate and lasting relief from extremely dry skin. Its unique formula and superior system of emollients and humectants binds water to the skin, preventing moisture loss.
The fact that it is fragrance-free makes it great for sensitive skin i.e it does not have the Parfum ingredient. Otherwise it has a mild scent that fades off quickly. Also it is  non-comedogenic so it  can be used on the face as well. Though, I haven’t tried it on the face since I have a combination skin. But I do tend to get eruptions on my upper arms sometimes, so I try to avoid using it there, however, I did not get any when I used this product on my upper arms too.
The cream is a quite thick. If you see the picture you can see that it still holds it shape. However, it blends in very nicely. I generally apply it after a shower and it definitely keeps my skin soft for the rest of the day. I occasionally have periods of dry skin even when it is not winter, yes, even in summers sometimes, so I apply this before going to bed.This cream will work best for very dry skin, otherwise you might find it greasy .Also, I have the 20oz/566g jar ( also available in 3oz and 16oz which is 85g and 453g respectively).  The quantity I have is lot as you can see which can easily last me two winters. I had got this cream before the last winter started and I still have half the jar left. However, there is no mention of the shelf life on the jar.

Review for Olay Quench Daily Lotion - 4 months, 2 weeks ago

Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1
Hope you all had a cozy winter weekend. This is my first post on IMBB and I am really thrilled to write. I came across Olay through a family friend when this brand was not even launched in India. The first product that I used from this brand was a bathing bar and I would swear it was the most moisturizing soap I have ever used. So, while my friend was visiting states I asked him to get a body lotion from Olay. You would have to read on to know how it faired for me.
24 hour moisture from Olay. The result of over 50 years of Olay skin science, Olay body lotions go beyond moisturization to improve skin’s barrier over time. With continued use, skin becomes noticeably soft, smooth and more resistant to skin dryness.
I have been using this body lotion for 6 months now as it is quite a big bottle. The bottle comes with a pump dispenser, so there is no wastage of product. The lotion has a creamy texture and gets readily absorbed in the skin. I totally love the smell it imparts to my skin. The smell is neither floral nor fruity, but a smell which I think even sensitive noses would like. I do not know if the fragrance is too strong for people around me, but after two hours or so the smell settles to a subtle fragrance. I can only smell the lotion if I bring my nose close to my skin.
A coin sized quantity is enough for a single hand, so a little goes a long way. It leaves the skin soft and supple. There are soft shimmer particles, which imparts a subtle glow on the skin. The shimmer particles are fairly visible in sunlight, though I could also mark that they shine under the LED lights. The shimmer effect stays for atleast 12 hours, but I cannot vouch for the moisturizing effect for this long. I have tried to capture the shimmer in the sun, but unfortunately my camera was not able to separate the glare and the shine. In person, it looks beautiful.
I have very dry feet and elbows, which is bothersome even in summers. This lotion can only moisturize my elbows for upto 4 hours after which they start to feel dry again.Overall, I would say that I totally love this Body Lotion and I am disappointed that it’s still not launched in India. I have almost run the search on every possible site to repurchase it again.
