Talk About Overpriced...!
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Body Lotion

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Body Lotion
Advantages: Posh packaging, good as a body lotion
Disadvantages: Too expensive for what's inside
Some things I would pay more for because they are just naturally better products. But the prices of designer companies charge I just do not comprehend. Of course, they are slightly better quality, and have worked hard to gain their designer status, and so have the right to be slightly more expensive than your average product, but the fact that they charge several times over what they really ought be charging is just beyond ridiculous. Sometimes I like to buy designer brand perfumes because they actually do smell superior to others, but this is a BODY LOTION, and I think that Chanel has by far over priced it. Luckily for my purse, I myself did not BUY this body lotion, I was given it as a gift, but I believe that you can obtain it for just under £50? Now, think about what you could do with £50 instead of splashing out on a posh body lotion... Well, here are my views on this product:
I can't lie and say the lotion is horrible- it is rather nice actually, but nothing out of the ordinary. The lotion itself is not really like a lotion; more like the texture and thickness of milkshake or thin pouring yogurt; which I find is irritating as it makes it all the more easier to spill. The texture of the lotion also makes it slightly difficult to apply; it does not come slowly out of the bottle as an easy to handle lotion and you can't dip your finger into it like a body butter. Instead, when you try to tip a bit onto your hands, it takes quite a bit of effort to make sure that the whole lot does not come streaming out. It is reasonably easy to apply; it has an smooth, cool, silky feel as you rub it into your skin and is not very greasy. However, I find it more like a body milk, and I feel as if they should have stated something about it on the bottle.
The smell is not amazing, but it is not bad either. Whilst some may choose to call the scent exotic and sophisticated, I cannot help but find it a little old fashioned; like something my gran would wear. This is in no circumstance a BAD thing; however, I would prefer something lovely and fruity like the Body Shop's body lotions or body butters which only cost a fraction of this product's price. The smell does linger there for a few hours, but it is nothing out of the ordinary.
QUALITY AND PACKAGING:
The packaging and quality are the only aspects that actually meet the expectations of the price: but who pays that much for a posh bottle or a sophisticated looking card board box? The bottle is sleek, sophisticated and cubic, with gilt lettering, which makes it look posh. This all comes in a smart looking cardboard exterior with the same posh gilt letters. I cannot complain of the quality either; but then, there are so many other good quality skin care products out there available to you for a fraction of this product's price.
This is in no way a BAD product, but then for the price of it, it is not notoriously good either. i am not necessarily trying to ward you off this product, I am just saying that you can get better for much less money. But if you will insist on spending a fortune on a body lotion because it has a designer logo adorned on it, then I guess this body lotion is worth a try.
Summary: A reasonable body lotion for an unreasonable price
