This is my preferred lotion in the 'HEAT' range and perfume.
This is lighter in scent and I feel more comfortable wearing this in the day time as well as having the luxury to wear it at night.
The lotions are very closely styled on the perfume and carry the same notes:
RED VANILLA ORCHID
CREAM DE MUSK
GIANT SEQUOIA MILKWOOD
Heat is certainly what the scent reflects and I was surprised to like this as much as I have due to it being a 'Celebrity' fragrance as in previous purchases I have found that they haven't delivered. From the style of the box to the gorgeous fiery red bottle the whole look reflects the element. This really brings added value to what you're paying for.
This scent is great and light, floral but sensual. I would say this is quite a sparkling scent and uplifting, ready and confident for a new day ahead.
I normally feel confident to just pop this into my bag and use more than perfume. I also much prefer a lotion then carry a perfume around as you can that wonderful perfume scent but its subtle so when you are at work it's noticeable but not overwhelming.
Prices vary online, but I paid at the time £22 but found out much later on you can get the whole gift set for nearl the same amount!
I recently reviewed Beyonce's debut fragrance 'Heat' which I really liked. I received mine in a set with other goodies also containing the shower gel and body lotion. At first I was rather put off being it was a celebrity product and her music being so far off what I normally listen too; but I was wrong and extremely glad I gave this a go.
Beyonce Heat Body Lotion:
'Indulge your senses and light up the night!'
I'm certain many of you have heard of the singer and actress Beyonce Knowles; however her music as talented as she is, is just not my taste being a metal lass myself. So when I opened this gift set I assumed that I wouldn't like it, but I was wrong as it has turned into one of my favourites.
After using the 'Heat' shower gel I followed up by using the matching body lotion, it really did smell just like the perfume absolutely gorgeous!
I was a little worried at first trying this as it contains gold sparkles and I didn't really want to look like a Christmas tree, but it was only subtle hints of gold which when caught by the light gave you a little shimmer which was just right and not over the top. Lovely on a night out.
The fragrance of the lotion matched the perfume to a tee following the same notes -
Top Notes - red vanilla orchid, magnolia, neroli and blush peach
Middle Notes - honeysuckle nectar, almond macaroon and crème de musk
Base Notes - giant sequoia milkwood, tonka bean and amber.
The cream is of a medium consistency and glides over skin with ease leaving my skin soft, irresistible to the touch, moisturised and smelling great. For a lotion it has great staying power I applied to my skin on the night and the morning after you can still smell hints of this on your skin; however the golden shimmers seem to disappear which doesn't really bother me.
My skin feels fresh and soft and this feeling also last on my skin giving it the radiance it needs, perfect all round lotion.
Eau De Parfum
Gold Sparkling Body Lotion
Price and Availability:
The lotion itself will cost around £10.00 but if you do like the aroma I would suggest getting the gift set as for an extra few pounds you're getting the perfume and the shower gel also.
My gift set was purchased from Boots and for £23.00 with the shower gel and body lotion is great value for money. A little goes along way so this set will last you for a long time.
ASOS are doing this set for £13.95! Amazing price for a wonderful great smelly set!
You can also purchase this from online stores such as -
This is a great body lotion for when you're off on a night out or a special night in, the fragrance last well; my skin feels great and lasts all night long. Better value within a gift set but the lotion can be found cheaper if you shop around. A memorable, bold and sexy fragrance, one that shall be in my favourites for awhile yet to come. Well maybe until I try her new fragrance 'Heat Rush'!
A big five out of five stars from me.
Thanks for reading :o)
Heat is the first fragrance from Beyonce with the tag line 'Catch a Fever' certainly is a big hit for me, knowing that this is her first fragrance product makes me wonder will she bring anymore out? Well if she does I will certainly be giving it a go hoping it will be just as nice as this one.
Heat first hit the market in February 2010, I had no idea it had been out so long and was inspired by her tour. Unlike some celebrate products Beyonce was very much hands on with this product even down to the detail of the bottle in an antique looking glass and hints of her mother's collection of antique flacons and in her favourite colour red. Which follows on the same theme with the lotion bottle in red and a golden shimmer which looks very fetching in my bathroom.
