The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion

My Take on The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion:

I recently got over with Jergens Age Defying Multi-Vitamin moisturizer and started looking for unused body lotion in my stash and I came across The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion which I have used once or twice and I thought to use it again for reviewing it on the blog. It has a very refreshing orange smell which feels amazing and divine. Anyone can make it out that I have used something orange smelling when I use this body lotion but unfortunately the fragrance doesn’t stay for more than 15-20 minutes.The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion ReviewThe lotion has a very light weight texture and somewhat flowy consistency, it gets absorbed within seconds leaving skin moisturized but that moisturization veil isn’t visible much, you can only feel that something cool has been applied to your skin and you don’t get that moisture feel! The moisturization isn’t enough to hydrate dry skin or for winters as in winters, skin needs extra moisturization and this body lotion doesn’t give that! It feels very light and absolutely non greasy so that makes it quite good for oily skin but unfortunately for dry skin, it isn’t good enough!!

My skin feels the need of re-application after 3-4 hours and for my dry palms, I need to apply it after every 30 minutes :/ I think that’s coz it’s a water based lotion and not oil based so it’s definitely not for winters but for summers, it’s a really good body lotion with refreshing summery orange smell.The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body LotionThe Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body LotionThe Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion SwatchesPros of The Body Shop Satsuma Puree Body Lotion:
