The Body Shop Moringa Softening Body milk review

The Body Shop Moringa body milk comes in a plastic transparent bottle with black colored spray nozzle.  The transparent bottle makes it easier to know the amount of product left in the bottle. The spray pump has a black cap making it easy and spill proof to carry. The ingredients list and other details is written at the back of the bottle.

TBS Moringa body milk is a light weight, cream colored lotion with runny consistency. The thin consistency helps in proper spraying. It has an amazing floral fragrance which is light and not overpowering. The smell lingers on for few minutes before dissipating. TBS Moringa body milk is easy to spread and absorb. It doesnot feel sticky like some other variants of The Body Shop lotions (I am looking at you, Strawberry Puree lotion). However, I feel it was bit low on moisturizing on my dry skin and I would definitely need something richer for winters. However, it was just okay for summers, providing enough hydration to the skin to not feel uncomfortable.

Now coming to the packaging, I am not a fan of spray moisturizers and TBS Moringa spray nozzle felt bit hard to use and doesn’t spray effortlessly. You have to put in some effort to spray the lotion directly on the skin. So I had to spray the lotion on my hands and then spread it on my skin. And while spraying on the hands works fine, it feels unnecessary to have spray pump especially when the lotion is so liquidy that it can be directly poured from the bottle. Plus it needs 3-4 pumps of the spray nozzle to cover one hand, which might be an issue  if you are short on time.

If you are looking for a face lotion, I HIGHLY recommend THIS product

 

 

 

 

Overall, this a lightweight lotion with amazing floral fragrance. It  gets absorbed well and doesnot leave any stickiness on the skin. But I would probably not repurchase this as I find this bit low on hydration for my dry skin. The spray mechanism feels luxurious but honestly it is not my type. I prefer simple pump dispenser/ no dispenser at all. Also the spray mechanism is quite an effort to use. But I would definitely suggest this to oily skinned people who need a bit of moisturization especially in winter months. Also, these are available at reduced prices at the moment, but for the MRP printed on the bottle, I find this a little expensive. This is a perfect body lotion for hot and humid days when you want just enough hydration minus the feeling of heaviness. This is not a MUST TRY product but oily skinned people should check this out.

Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion Lavender & Neroli SPF 25 : Review

 

Forest Essentials is my favourite brand for skin care and I love LOVE the products. One whiff of the products and it takes you to heaven! Even the fragrance inside/around the store is irresistible. I have already reviewed Forest Essentials lip balm HERE and I am reviewing another holy grail product from the brand in this post- Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion Lavender & Neroli.

 

This Light Day Lotion is a silky light weight lotion that steeps into the skin easily leaving it soft and smooth with a non-greasy feel. It has an SPF 25 due to Yasada Bhasma, which is a natural sunscreen and an herb infused derivative offering long-lasting protection from the harsh rays of the sun leaving skin supple, toned and fresh.

Pure Lavender water, which is therapeutic and calming, nourishing Oat kernel extract and stimulating Neroli oil combined with zinc, known for its healing and regenerative qualities, to firm and clarify the skin. It also contains Ayurvedic herbs like Ashwagandha and Gokharu along with Almond, Wheat germ and Olive oils, which not only provide nourishment but also prevent the skin from the damaging effect of free radicals.

 

Price: Rs 1750 for 40ml

Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion Lavender & Neroli SPF 25 Review

FE Light Day Lotion Lavender & Neroli comes in golden square shaped, plastic bottle with pump dispenser. The packaging itself screams luxury and prettifies your vanity. It comes in pump packaging with a golden lid. The bottle is sturdy, light weight and easy to travel with. However, the packaging is opaque which doesnot let you know how much product is left inside the bottle.

The texture of this lotion looks thick in consistency but it blends like a dream. One pump is sufficient for entire face. It is highly emollient and blends easily. It is non greasy and gives a matte finish making it perfect for summers. It absorbs quickly and even though it contains SPF 25, it does not leave any white cast behind. Forest Essentials Neroli and Lavender day lotion smells divine. It has a soothing fragrance of lavender. But unfortunately (fortunately for sensitive noses) the fragrance doesnot linger for long. This lotion feels just perfect, neither too heavy or nor too light for my combination skin in summers. However, I will not be using this in winters when my skin gets excessively dry.

Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion Lavender & Neroli contain an SPF of 25 which is always an added benefit. But you should always apply additional layer of sunscreen, preferably of higher SPF when stepping out in sun.

The only downside of this amazing product is its price. This is an expensive product but one bottle will easily last an entire season as only a tiny quantity is required every time (1 pump is sufficient for face).

Forest Essentials products are cruelty free and does not contain parabens

 

 

 

 

Overall, I will highly recommended Forest Essentials Day lotion Lavender and Neroli for oily skin/ combination skinned beauty. This product is perfect for summer months. This lotion smells heavenly and blends like a dream. It mattifies the skin and does not feel heavy. Added SPF is always a benefit. However, this is expensive. But one bottle will easily last 3 months at least. I will definitely repurchase this when it gets over.
