“ Brand: Oriflame / Type: Body Lotion / Subcategory: Body Milk / What it does: Moisturizes, „
When I buy a shower gel, I tend to get the same scented body lotion. This is how Oriflame Body Lotion with Moisturising Coconut & Ricemilk ended up on my bathroom shelves.
It comes in the same sort of bottle like the shower gel - fairly plain, with a lid at the top. The only difference is that this bottle is only semi-transparent. It is brown at the bottom and the colour fades to the top. It also has pictures of coconut and ricemilk - very temtping indeeed.
The lotion is white so we can easily see how much of it is left in the bottle. It has a lovely, sweet coconut scent (no ricemilk noticed!) - just exactly the same one as the shower gel has. This one, however, stays for longer. Even though it is not very intense (at least compared to the Body Shop), you can still smell it on your skin after a few hours. It can also be smelled in the bathroom for a bit, but again, compared to the Body Shop smells, this ones was gone fairly quickly.
I really like the texture of this body lotion, it is not too runny - I hate when it is like this as I tend to spill quite a lot of it on the floor - but at the same time, it isn't very thick (I am not a fan of squeezing the bottle five million times just to get a tiny bit of lotion out). The skin absorbs it very quickly.
Most of the times, I use body lotions for pleasure. I think this one does its job OK - it isn't amazing, and it is definitely not for dry skin (I think that Oriflame promises that it is good for dry skin, but unfortunately, it isn't).
I remember I paid something like £4.00 per 200 ml bottle but at the moment, I cannot find it on Oriflame website so I'm unsure whether it is still available and I don't know the exact price.
