Parachute Advansed Body Lotion for Dry Skin

Hey all…Welcome to HnB! Thank you for your time while you read through the post! Keep coming back for more interesting stuff!

My new pick for a moisturizer this time was Parachute Advansed Body Lotion – the dry skin variant. There is also an All Seasons variant available. I was scrambling to buy this one from the time I saw its promos and once I saw them hit the stores.. yo i went and bought one for myself..

Parachute has been a household name for decades now and I was expecting something really good from this new venture of them..

Price:Ā  INR 49 for 100 ml.

Packaging:
The container is beautifully shaped.. the curves give better handling of the bottle..even if u buy a bigger one.. attractive but soothing shades used for the container.. flip-open cover is easy to use and also travel friendly…

What the product claims:
Contains 100% natural moisturizers.. for soft n silky skin with the milk of coconut fruit. Suitable for use by entire family.

Ingredients:
Aqua, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Glycerin, Isopropyl myristate, Stearic acid, Triethanolamine, Coconut milk, Glyceryl stearate, Hydrogenated vegetable oil, Dimethicone, Steareth – 21, Steareth – 2, Fragrance, Methyl paraben, Carbomer, Propyl paraben, Phenoxyethanol, BHT, Disodium EDTA.

The way I see it:
The texture of the lotion is wat would strike to you first.. Its not a runny one but isnt very creamy too.. A white lotion that would sooth your olfactory nerves.. Yes!! I love the mild fragrance this lotion has.. was expecting myself not to smell of coconut all over and yes it helped me out… šŸ˜€

It gets absorbed into the skin so very easily that I end up applying too much on the skin… This is one moisturizer for sure that has made me overcome my laziness to apply one.. ;pĀ  Its non-greasy and glides into the skin so quick leaving a mild fragrance behind… Also gives a light glow to the skin…

  • Many of us check the effectiveness of body lotions through its thickness or extremely creamy texture. We tend to think, thicker the lotion more effective it is as a moisturizer. This is a myth, because in reality an overdose of lipids on our skin can actually trap the body cells and make the skin look dull. Thick creams can also block the pores as a result of which the skin cannot breathe.
    Light moisturizers can get easily absorbed in your skin without blocking your body cells. It enables your skin to breathe thus making your skin smooth and glowing. Viscosity of the lotion has nothing to do with its effectiveness as a moisturizer.
    The most effective moisturisers are the ones which penetrate deep within the skin and nourish it from inside. The mark of a great moisturiser is that your skin gets better with continued usage.
