Majority of us tend to use body lotions only in winters when our skin gets dry. This is wrong. Body lotion is beneficial in all seasons and is one of the most inexpensive ways to nourish our skin. If you live/work in a harsh climate or have sensitive skin, applying body lotion on regular intervals will protect your skin from being chapped or dried.
Today I am reviewing a body lotion from Yves Rocher – Yves Rocher Cocoa & Raspberry Perfumed Body Lotion.
PRICE – GBP 4.95 for 300 ml
WHAT THE BRAND CLAIMS
Envelop your skin in infinite softness and a delicious, indulgent scent.
Indulge your skin with this body lotion, enveloping it in the delectable and highly addictive scent of cocoa and raspberry.Velvety, smooth and moisturizing, it leaves your skin feeling soft. . It’s so good, you won’t get enough of it this winter!
Secret of formula: vegetable oil (rapeseed), blueberry water with softening properties, cocoa bean water, organic raspberry extract.
Formula tested under dermatological supervision. Paraben free, Ethoxyl free.MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT
Firstly, let me admit- I love body butters, body souffles and lotions a lot and there is not even a single day in my life where I not apply anything before I take my beauty sleep. I always feel in any climate or skin conditions – a body lotion is absolutely necessary. In the same way you take care of your facial skin – you have to take care of your body too. Many of us work in a/c rooms the whole day and don’t drink water properly. All of these results in dehydration of body and body needs to be hydrated too. So make sure you drink a lot of water everyday and include lots of fruits and fruit juices in your diet. Apart from these measures, its equally important to use some good products that helps replenish the rough areas on your skin.
Yves Rocher Cocoa & Raspberry Perfumed Body Lotion has a very light liquid-cream formula which is quickly absorbed into the skin while it leaves a delicious sweet cocoa and raspberry scent somewhat similar to sugar coated cherries…I love the fragrance! The fragrance lasts for about 3 or 4 hours.
It has a smooth texture which is moisturizing and hydrating but slightly sticky for few minutes too. My skin feels so soft and smooth so I bet I’ll be using this lotion quite a lot this winter.
The fragrance is very sweet. If you are not fond of fruity fragrances- you might want to skip this one. But, I love it. This is a limited edition product and its available only on selected stores. Online – its sold out.I like to use it at night after a bath. The fragrance is not overpowering and this lotion is paraben & ethoxyl free. This can be also used as a after wax smoothing lotion for legs. It leaves the area really soft and hydrated.
THE ‘YAY’ FACTORS
- Hydrates skin well
- Leaves skin soft and smooth
- Can be used as an after-wax lotion too
THE ‘NAY’ FACTORS
- Bulky for travel
- Not everyone would love the sweet fragrance
- Feels slightly stick upon application
- Hard to find now being a limited edition product
Overall, a great product with awesome fruity fragrance and hydrates body for long time. Only problem is – its hard to find and if applied too much – it feels a little thick and sticky on application.
Tip – Apply on the palm of your hands and spread it on the area gently till its absorbed.
HnB Ed* – Amazing pictures Renji! Yves Rocher products are definitely worth it! Sweet fragrances are not my thing but glad you are liking this lotion! 🙂
