~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 :)
