~Daisy Luminous Body Lotion~
This body lotion is part of the Marc Jacobs Daisy collection. This fragrance collection also includes a perfume, body butter and a shower gel. Ideal if you wish to buy all of them to layer the scent.
Daisy Luminous Body Lotion is said to offer a light Daisy scent when used alone or a more intense scent when both the body lotion and perfume are layered together. The promise is that your skin will be left 'petal soft and renewed'. It carries the same scent of the perfume which includes notes of wild strawberry, violet, grapefruit, jasmine and gardenia.
The body lotion is presented in a gorgeous, classy looking tube. The tube is white with a gold cap and gold writing. A black band illustrating daisies runs around the bottom of the tube. The tube doesn't have a removable lid. The cap has a hole in it and it is case of twisting it slightly to open the hole. I found this out the hard way and wondered why I couldn't remove the lid! The tube can be recycled and has a shelf life of 24months. I love the design of the tube but it is the same design as the shower gel and they would be easy to mix up.

I originally won a bottle of Marc Jacobs Daisy in a competition for have since finished it. I am however, still the owner of the body butter and the body lotion so can still experience this delightful scent until such time as I can afford another bottle of the perfume. I have a 75ml sized tube which was part of a fragrance gift set that my sister received. She doesn't tend to use highly perfumed body lotions so normally gives them to me to use.
Having previously reviewed both the perfume and the body butter, I thought it was about time that I told you about this gorgeous body lotion. Previous readers of my reviews will be aware of my love for expensive body lotions and this definitely falls into this category. To be honest, I actually find this to be cheaper than most premium branded body lotions and worth every penny as the quality is top notch.
~Fresh As A (Luminous) Daisy~
I love wearing this body lotion but find that it is best worn on warmer days. The lotion itself is easy to dispense once you have worked out the cap mechanism. The lotion has a reasonably thick consistency and a beautifully cooling and creamy texture. I do not need to apply much to coat my skin as it spreads very well. Whilst the body butter is more luxurious to apply, I find this body lotion to be quite indulgent as it is quite rich yet lightweight at the same time.
The lotion sinks into my skin quickly and no sticky residue is left behind. I can understand where the 'luminous' part of this body lotion name comes from as a light shimmer is left on my skin. It isn't a 'look at me' glittery shimmer but more of a healthy, skin brightening shimmer that looks good when the sun catches it. It is quite understated and doesn't cheapen the product in any way. It looks very feminine around my shoulder and neck area. It would be ideal to use when on holiday.
In terms of moisturising benefits, this body lotion does perform well at leaving my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. I find that the surface of my skin is silky smooth to the touch but it doesn't work as effectively on extra dry areas such as my knees and elbows. Something more intensive is needed for these areas as this is pretty much a lightweight body lotion. I normally slather on the lotion across most of my skin but use the body butter on the extra dry areas. This way, my skin is all scented with the Daisy scent! My skin is still beautifully soft later in the evening.
It is fair to say that this body lotion smells absolutely divine! It is very much like the perfume but on a lighter scale as you would expect. The scent of this body lotion is Summery, clean and fresh in my opinion. The scent is gorgeous from the moment that I apply this lotion to my skin. I can pick up a beautiful combination of sweet and fruity notes with fresh, leafy undertone.
A soft, airy floral note comes through after a while but the main focus is on a fresh sweetness which makes this scent amazing and very feminine. I can notice the scent on my skin for a good 6 hours or so. I have used this alongside the perfume (before my bottle ran out) and found that both products complimented each other perfectly and the scent was evident on my skin for most of the day. I find the overall scent to have a pleasant strength. It is noticeable but not overpowering in anyway.
Okay, so this isn't a cheap body lotion but it is soooo worth it. It is the perfect, perfumed lotion to use during the day and is a treat to use. My tube is lasting well as I only require a small amount per use. It is very gentle on my sensitive skin and leaves my skin beautifully soft and smelling gorgeous. I cannot really fault it and therefore, can highly recommend it.
Thanks for reading :)
I actually got this body lotion as part of a gift set. Now, considering that I barely ever use the body lotions in a perfume gift set, this little beauty did lie in my room for a while before I used it. But one day I needed a lotion to just pop in my bag, and this proved to be perfect to be able to fit in my handbag when out and about. And I've been addicted ever since!
The actual bottle is in the same style as the Daisy perfume; gold and white with black detailing. The lid on the bottle is a twist one; you twist it to the side to get the product out and then twist it back to lock the product. The lid does not actually come off; it just leaves a hole ready for the product to be released when you twist it. This is very handy, because it makes it very easy for you to just get some lotion out quickly when you are out and about, rather than fiddling around with lids.
The lotion itself smells pretty much the same as the Daisy perfume. If you have not smelled Daisy before, then you will not be disappointed. It has a very light, yet sweet fragrance. It smells almost like white musk with a bit more sweet scents added. Because this lotion is so heavily perfumed, it lasts near enough all day. I often use this lotion and people are asking me which perfume I am wearing; so it doubles up as a moisturiser and a perfume! Perfect.
In addition, the lotion has specks of glitter in it, which are particularly noticeable on your skin when the light shines on it. At first, I was not too sure about this. But now I really love it. Its girly and perfect for a night out. I put this lotion all over my chest when going out clubbing; it moisturises, makes me smell gorgeous and gives a lovely glitter as well!
My friend gave this to me for a birthday present, as well as the Daisy Marc Jacobs EDP and shower gel too.
~Packaging and Appearance~
Marc Jacobs Daisy Luminous Body Lotion comes in a small (75ml) tube or a large (150ml) tube. The tube is white with a golden lid. On the front of the tube is the title of the product, and on the back of the tube is the address of the Marc Jacobs company, the website and the capacity of the tube. The ingredients are on the black box the lotion comes in. The cap of the tube is quite strange - it's not a twist-off cap, you just twist it anti-clockwise until it click and a small hole appears in the top of the lid, and the lotion comes out of this hole.
The lotion itself is scented just like the perfume - a light, sweet, floral smell. The lotion is white in colour and has tiny fragments of glitter in it. The lotion provides good moisturisation and smells gorgeous, and the tiny fragments of glitter give your skin a gorgeous shimmer, so this lotion is for special ocassions only - partly because it is glittery but mostly because of the price! However the lotion is quite thick, so you don't need a lot. The fragrance may irritate sensitive skin, but I haven't got this problem.
One 150ml tube is £22 from Amazon, and the smaller tube (75ml) comes in a gift set (with 50ml Daisy Marc Jacobs EDP and 75ml Daisy Marc Jacobs shower gel). £22 is a lot for a lotion but it is designer and it's worth it as it's a nice rich lotion that smells amazing and looks amazing, and it's perfect for special ocassions.
I have a bottle of the Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume which I absolutely love. The bottle is the best thing about this perfume in my opinion so it's a shame that this body lotion does not come in the same type of packaging with pretty daisies on the top but nevertheless this lotion is still great. It does however have a cute little border of the daisy design around the bottom of the body lotion so I guess that it some consolation. On the top of the body lotion the words, Daisy, Marc Jacobs are just simply written and then the screw cap is a lovely gold colour, just like the top of the perfume bottle. The smell itself is described as radiant and enchanting fragrance and is classified as a floral femininity fragrance. It comes from the American designer Marc Jacobs. He is very successful and is currently the Creative Director of Louis Vuitton! They market this lotion as carefree, flirty, natural. It is supposed to be happy and youthful and sophisticated but not too serious.
I have a number of Marc Jacobs perfumes and products now and I do like the quality of them and the attention to detail that they possess. To me they are always quite an upmarket product even if you are paying for that pleasure. This body lotion is no different. According to the information on this lotion it has ingredients of wild strawberry and ruby red grapefruit which give it a luscious natural freshness, while the base notes of musk and vanilla give a warm sensuality. I absolutely love this smell and think it is one of my favourites. I generally tend to really like smells like this as I always find them quite light and easy to wear. I would say this lotion is probably an every day lotion as it does not have a musky scent that would be more suited to evening wear so it's nice that it's an everyday lotion. It's definitely light and not too sweet and does not smelly overly fruity or sickly in anyway.
The lotion is very luxurious in my opinion and makes my skin nice and moisturised. I love having this lotion as well as the perfume as it enables me to layer the fragrances and get a really long lasting smell. It is an expensive lotion. A 150ml tube will cost you £22 so not cheap but it does last a while and is nice as a present!
I first tried Marc Jacobs Daisy when I brought the gift set over christmas, but it wasn't until the other day that I tried the body lotion, im not a huge fan of body lotion only because it takes forever to dry im very impatient, however i found this body lotion amazing.
Firstly it dries very quickly and really hydrates the skin leaving it feeling really soft and incredibly silky. The smell is lush as well, it smells exactly to the note of the perfume some moisturisers that you get with perfume smell differently not this one though, it goes great with the perfume, and if your do not want to wear perfume out this body lotion is more than enough.
The lotion itself is white and fairly thick, but so easy to rub in and a small amount covers a large part of the body and leaves no marks on your cloths either. One thing that really stood out about this body lotion is how once it is applied it leaves a slight golden glitter on your skin that makes your skin glow and look amazing it even looks like you have a slight tan, perfect for those wearing it out to a party or down town.
The bottle itself is one that I have never seen before it is a white tube and comes in 150ml or 200ml, the lid however does not come off it is twisty. You simple twist the lid and a small amount of lotion comes out which is fantastic because you only use what you need so there is no waste. The most amazing part is though that the lotion does not dry up and go all gooey, and the lotion does not run out of the hole either. I personally find the twist lid better than the lids you have to unscrew because it means less mess to deal with and you do not have to worry about loosing the lid or trying to screw the lid back of with slippery fingers.
The scent of marc jacobs if VeRy floral and fairly sweet, daisy really does smell like daises. It is not over powering or to weak either. The body lotion is truly great for anyone who is not keen on wearing perfume or is looking for a great smelling moisturiser.
Price wise it can range depending on where you buy the product or whether you buy the moisturiser as a set. For a 200ml bottle you are looking at a price range of around £25.
This may seem a lot but the moisturiser is great and lasts such a long time the life span of the tube of body lotion is 24 months so you have two years to use it if you just want to keep it back for special occasions..
I received the Daisy by Marc Jacobs in a box set that included the perfume. I love this body lotion for many reasons. Number one is because it is a nice moisteriser which works just as well as any other moisteriser I have used
Another advantage is that it smells just like the Daisy by Marc Jacobs perfume therefore compliments the scent nicely. I also find it is useful if I run out of the perfume so I am able to use the scented moisteriser alone instead of my perfume until I am able to get my hands on some, with the same scent.
I like the glittery sheen it gives the skin, it is very subtle so suitable for day, night, summer and winter.
However what I do not like about the product is the container that it comes in. It is a tube that is squeezed, however the only way you can get it out is to twist the gold lid which can get a little bit messy as I often end up scraping moisteriser from the bottom of the lid.
Another of the disadvantages is that it probabaly could not be used on sensitive skin as it is perfumed.
Overall I love this moisteriser and body lotion, it really compliments the perfume well. Not sure if I would buy it on its own outside the box set of perfume however will definitley continue to use it until it is finished.
