Now that the temperature is getting even lower there is nothing I love more than taking warm bath’s and lathering myself up in creamy lotions or creams, before brewing a nice cup of tea and making a “blanket nest” on the coach.
This is the season after all 😉
So after running out after my favourite lotion and finding out that it had been discontinued I found this one at my local grocery store.
I have tried out a lot from the Garnier Respons line and I have had mixed results from the various products, but I did decide to try this out since it claims to be non greasy and non sticky, two qualities I’m always looking for when it comes to body lotions. It also sounded really luxurious since it has oat cream and almond milk in it.
Another claim is that it’s extracts are of 100% natural origin and it is formulated without parabens.
So how did this work out?
The packaging is a tear shaped bottle made of plastic and with the standard pump.
The bottle holds 250 ml of product.
The first thing of notice is the very heavy gourmand scent this body lotion has. I did initially like it but it proves too strong the longer I wear it also smells very cheap after a while.
I don’t like it and I am very disappointed since I had very high hopes that the scent would be a “soothing and natural” gourmand scent instead.
What makes it even more of a let down is that the formula itself is absolutely wonderful. I cannot praise the formula high enough as it really does fulfill what it claims and leaves my skin soft.
The texture is this really creamy thick lotion, which did surprise me since I initially thought this would be much more milky in texture because of the quick dry claim.
It’s not quick to dry however but it really does not matter that much when I’m left with soft skin that feels soothed. I often get very rough skin on my arms and legs during the winter so this body lotion has really helps with that.
Too bad that the scent ruins it 😦
But if you love heavily sweet gourmandy scents then you will love this.
It is great at moisturizing skin and it really does have a soothing effect but for me the scent ruins everything.
I will however recommend this to people but personally I won’t buy it again.
