Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion Review !

PR Sample

Hiya,
It is winter and the climate is cold in most of the parts. As and when the weather changes, our skin also feels stretched and rough. To enjoy smooth baby skin which looks younger and firmer, using a good moisturizer is must.  My facial skin is oily but my body is on the dry side. I am pampering myself this winter with the all new Himalaya’s Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion.
It contain some of the best moisturizing ingredients. Wheat germ oil is known for its anti aging properties and it boosts your skin’s elasticity .This lotion is high in anti-oxidant properties and the cocoa butter helps to detoxify and speeds up the process of skin repair.

Product Claim:

Olive Oil and Grape Seed Oil help in repair and regeneration, restoring healthy skin with a long lasting glow.
Key Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Olive Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Wheatgerm Oil
Price: 250 for 400ml
My Take on the Product:

Himalaya’s Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion comes  in a simple opaque white plastic bottle with a green flip cap. The bottle is travel friendly. The pack is available in 100,200 and 400 ml versions. I prefer pump dispensers for body lotion. This bottle is sturdy and easy to access but the residual layer forms over the cap and we have to clean it often.
The lotion is white with a light tint of brown due to cocoa butter. The product has a creamy texture and this lotion will has got a rich base of ingredients like cocoa butter, olive oil, grape seed oil and wheat germ oil.
The product soothes and treats dry skin well with its intensive formula. It is natural and organic but it has parabens. The product will take care of the dry skin and keeps it hydrated. The lotion is light weighted and not heavy. It has a pleasant cocoa butter fragrance that lingers for sometime. The smell doesn’t last whole day.
I massage this lotion to my damp skin and it takes only a couple of minutes to settle. My skin feels soft and smooth.
It is non greasy and gets quickly absorbed into the skin. The moisturization it gives was enough for my combination skin. For people with intense dry skin, you might need a heavier formula. It didnt irritate my skin.
The lotion doesn’t have SPF. It doesn’t leave any stain.

Overall Thoughts:

I am loving this body lotion right from my first use. It is hypo-allergic. Oily skinned people can give it a try too as it is light weight and non greasy. Overall, Himalaya’s Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion is a simple and effective product. It is not so luxurious but it does its job well.  I like the lingering cocoa butter fragrance and the smooth silky effect on my skin. I hate the parabens and no SPF factor. It is great for dry skinned beauties and I rate it 3.75/5
