I like the Benefit range of cosmetics and body treats, so when I spotted this on half price offer whilst scouring the internet I decided to give it a go.
The body lotion is described as "a warm and inviting fragrance that captures a playful tumble of white blossoms." Quite a poetic start for a body lotion!
The product comes in the obligatory and in my opinion, unnecessary box, which can be recycled. Inside the box is the 200ml tube of body lotion which has a screw on/off lid. The bottle itself is plastic and pale pink in colour with bits of information about the product on the back, but written in such a way as to make you think you are getting something really tempting. This is apparently the product for "bare skin beauty" and is a "flirtatious body lotion"
I unscrew the lid to see exactly what this is all about and when I give it a squeeze the body lotion comes out easily. Its not as thick as I expected it to be but then again it is a lotion and not a cream so it will be easier to apply to the skin. It is white in colour and has a definite floral scent. I cant distinguish what the exact smell is but it is very feminine and I do like it. Apparently the notes are: Apricot, White Ginger, Fresh Water Blossoms, Himalayan Poppy, and Warm Peach so this would explain the floral smell.
The instructions on the back of the bottle tell me to apply the product to my whole body (although rather more poetically) which I tend to do after a bath. It does go on easily and because its not overly thick it doesn't take too much massaging into the skin for it to be absorbed by the skin. What I didn't notice when I first dispensed it onto my hands is that it does leave the body with little shimmering highlights. These are quite subtle and whilst they would add a nice twist to skin if going out they are not so obvious that it becomes uncomfortable when just bathing and then into pjs! I have found with some products that the addition of shimmery bits can make the product less moisturising but thi is not the case with this body lotion; it does moisturise my skin, and leaves no sticky residue.
The product is available in chemists and online and although the RRP is about £20 (not cheap) there are lots of discounts to be found online.
This is a decent enough body lotion which does the job well. It is easy to apply and a little goes a long way. I like the smell which is floral but not overpowering.
The main sticking point for me is the price. I think £20 is rather steep for a body lotion and regardless how good it is there are lotions out there which do the job at a fraction of the cost.
I would recommend this as a body lotion and great if you get it as a present but I don't think I would be tempted to buy it for myself as an everyday kind of purchase.
Thanks for reading
