“ Brand: Beautifully Delicious / Type: Body Lotion „
You may be aware that I recently reviewed a Bath Fizzer from the Beautifully Delicious range, which in my opinion, was a very disappointing product. If you are not familiar with the manufacturer I would advise that they were launched in 2006 and are responsible for 29 different types of beauty products, such as body butters, bath cubes and lip balms. Although my review on their Bath Fizzer was extremely negative, my experience of using their Papaya and Mango Moisture Licious Body Lotion considerably differs and I would like to share this with you.
APPEARANCE OF THE PRODUCT
As I received four products contained within a gift pack their sizes are slightly smaller than normal with 50ml of body lotion being presented in a sturdy plastic tube with a lime coloured label, as opposed to a bottle with the full sized product. In the upper left hand corner is the company logo, which is an image of a black apple with their name situated inside. On the lower section is an image of an extremely mouth watering papaya and mango and we are advised that we should treat ourselves, as it's almost good enough to eat!
The rear of the product provides us with a little quirky information where we are informed to escape to the bathroom and to massage the lotion into our skin. The tube sits on an easy to open black screw top lid and its' entire appearance is very appealing and calming to the eye.
MY EXPERIENCE OF USING MOISTURE LICIOUS BODY LOTION
As soon as I unscrewed the lid I was immediately greeted by the most refreshing and delicious fragrance of papaya and mango and I would most definitely agree with the claim made by Beautifully Delicious, as it most definitely smells good enough to eat. Whilst the aroma was very fresh and uplifting I was expecting to be bitterly disappointed, particularly after using the rather dull and boring Bath Fizzer. I gently squeezed the tube and a reasonable amount of fairly thick body lotion dispensed from the small opening, which felt very cooling and luxurious when applied to my skin.
As per the directions on the reverse of the tube I moisturised the white lotion into my skin using a circular motion and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with its' consistency, as it resembles that of a cream as opposed to a lotion and feels very luxurious as it quickly absorbs. The delightful fragrance was evident the moment I dispensed the product from the tube and I an pleased to advise that it did not feel sticky on my skin.
I do not have a favourite body cream or lotion, as I tend to alternative with the many products that I own. However, this is most certainly a product that I will purchase again and due to its' very fresh and fruity fragrance I would be more inclined to use it in the spring and summer as opposed to the cold winter months. The lotion left my skin feeling extremely soft and moisturised and the staying power of the papaya and mango fragrance is simply first class.
Due to the extreme weather conditions that we have recently been experiencing I have spent more time in centrally heated spaces and as a result, my skin has started to suffer. However, I have a strict beauty regime and by using good quality products I have been able to restore my skin to its' former glory. As this is such a stunning product, which will leave your skin feeling silky soft and smooth, together with the added bonus of a fantastic uplifting fragrance, it receives a full 5 stars from me.
I am pleased to advise that I did not suffer any adverse effects when using and I have nothing but praise for this product. The body lotion should be used within 12 months of opening and the empty tube can be recycled once empty. There is an extremely lengthy list of ingredients contained on the reverse of the product, but for obvious reasons I do not intend copying them into this review.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
As my 50ml tube was contained within a gift set I am unable to provide you with a price of this size. However, I have checked on the Beautifully Delicious website and at the time of writing (8 January 2011) I would advise that a 500ml bottle will cost you £4.99. Beautifully Delicious products are available in most branches of Superdrug and a friend informed me that they can also be purchased in Next, although this is not something that I was aware of.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
