Gosh! It is raining here continuously for past 2.5 weeks with only a bit of sun peeping in for 1-2 days in between! And how I hate it, when I have so many important events coming up now in next few days! Seriously gals, it might be romantic to get wet in the rain of few hours but this prolonged bad weather is taking a toll on everyone’s daily life. Anyway, I would stop whining now and get on with today’s post where I am reviewing Himalaya Herbals Intensive Moisturizing Body Lotion for Dry/Extra Dry skin. So all the dry skinned ladies like me (and even who are not) read on! ;)
WHAT IT CLAIMS:
" Himalaya Intensive Moisturizing Body Lotion is a specially formulated body lotion for dry skin. It intensely loisturizes, softens and smoothes your skin. The moisturizer is enriched with the goodness of Cocoa Butter , Olive , Wheatgerm and Grapeseed Oils , which replenishes the lost moisture in dry skin. Naturally derived ingredients restore skin's elasticity, leaving it softer and toned than before.
Cocoa Butter, also known as oil of theobroma, is a high quality emollient, a skin softening and moisturizing agent. It promotes healing and prevents drying and cracking of skin. Cocoa Butter also contains antioxidants that can help repair your damaged skin.
Olive Oil, enriched with Vitamin E, nourishes, protects, and softens skin and prevents chafing. It has soothing and anti-microbial properties, which ensures that your skin is healthy.
Grapeseed Oil, possesses astringent qualities and thus its application helps to tighten and tone the skin. Grapeseed has high content of linoleic acid, a fatty acid essential for the skin. It also serves as a wonderful moisturizer and nourishes the skin.
Wheatgerm Oil, is a rich source of natural Vitamin E, which nourishes and boosts skin's elasticity. “- From Website.
I have been using the lotion for past 2weeks and I am going crazy for its awesome smell :x . I think it smells like chocolate but my mom says it smells like ice-cream so concluding that I can say it smells like some chocolate ice-cream that tempts me to lap it up everytime I use it, :P and the smell is retained by the skin for quite some time and permeates to the room too :D!
WHAT I LIKED:
- The smell…err.. I think I have said enough about it!
- It nourishes your skin and gives a healthy look to it yet doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.
- The consistency is neither too thick nor too runny. Just perfect for even application.
- I find all the Himalaya Herbals products decently priced.
- Comes in a sturdy packaging with a flip-cap dispenser and is travel friendly.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE:
- Though it doesn’t leave a heavy feeling on the skin but the skin does feel a bit oily to the touch.
- It is quite light and very suitable for summer/ rainy seasons, but for winter I don’t think it would be enough moisturizing for intensely dry skin.
I think I have found a replacement (if I ever require it) for my HG body lotion and that suffices it to say that I loved this product. :D
RATINGS: 4.5 out of 5
