As I have recently reviewed the Kylie Minogue Showtime fragrance I thought I would also review the sparkling body lotion that also came in the gift set I received for my 30th birthday.
The Showtime fragrance is very fruity and initially over powering when you first apply it and I was wondering whether the body lotion would be the same. Thankfully it isn't. The body lotion has a much subtler version of the Showtime scent in which you can still smell the fruitiness but you can also smell that "body lotion" smell that so many lotions seem to have!
The body lotion that I received in the set is a 150ml bottle and comes in a deep pink tube with simple silver writing on the front. I have had a look online and it would seem that you can buy the body lotion for around £5.00 in some places but that it is most commonly found in the gist sets.
There is a screw top bottom to the body lotion which you simply twist to expose the bottom of the tube where there is a hole for the lotion to come out. You squeeze the tube and the lotion comes out. I would say squeeze the tube gently as the lotion isn't overly thick and will squirt out quite quickly.
Now the tube says the lotion is a "sparkling" body lotion so is this accurate? Well there are tiny glitter type particles in the lotion but it isn't enough to turn you into a glitter ball! You may notice these small particles on your skin if you look closely enough or if the sun hits them but they don't really stand out. I think it is a nice touch to the lotion though.
When you apply the lotion as with any other you can apply it all over your body if you wish. The lotion rubs on very easily and you don't need a large amount to feel moisturised. I tend to use the lotion after a bath when my skin seems to be more receptive to being moisturised. After applying the lotion my skin does feel really soft and has a lovely fruity and floral scent to it which is really nice.
I would definitely recommend this product either for yourself or as a gift to treat someone as it is cheap enough, has a lovely scent and makes your skin feel soft which is all I can really ask from this product.
