I used to absolutely love Davidoff's Cool Water perfume and I hadn't had it for years. So, when people were asking what I might like for Christmas when I was six months pregnant, I suggested that someone might like to buy me some. They went one better and bought me a gift set which included a small bottle of perfume and a tube of this moisturising lotion. I say they went one better, but they would have actually been better saving their money and skipping the lotion to be honest because it just isn't that good.
There's not much that I can say in the way of positive things about it. It does smell nice. In fact it smells just like the perfume which is good because it means that you can use the two of them together. As the name suggests, it has an aqua based scent. It is light and refreshing and great for summer especially. But even here it falls down because the smell just doesn't last very long. I put it on and even just a couple of hours later and I can't smell it at all, which is a shame.
As if that weren't enough, there is more bad stuff. The lotion itself is pretty lousy. If I am being fair, I do prefer a thick creamy moisturiser - in fact I prefer a body butter type moisturiser - but even so this isn't good. I just find it really thin and watery almost (watery by name watery by nature!). It pours out pretty quickly which is annoying and it looks really thin in your hand which is not a good sign. I have found that it seems to make my skin even drier somehow. It does rub in really well but that's because it is so thin. The effects of it are not remotely long lasting and I really, really don't like it at all. Which is especially annoying because it is flipping expensive.
I think it is only available as part of the set, but it does bump up the price and I wouldn't recommend it in anyway shape or form. I'd advise skipping this and spending the money you've saved on a bigger bottle of perfume or something else entirely!
