“ Brand: Revlon / Type: Body Lotion „
Aquamarine Body Lotion with Aloe by Revlon is yet another of my 99p shop bargains (I do shop in other places, too.. honest!). I picked up this huge 14.9fl oz (437ml) bottle as I felt like a change. **Packaging** The packaging looks really retro and it being in 99p land I guess it may be discontinued or old stock. I think it looks quite funky though and the product inside is not dried or anything so I'm all for the retro look! **The claim** I like aloe as an ingredient in many items, like deodrant as I find it is kind to skin and usually has a nice aroma. This lotion is billed as a protective emolient that moisturises and is good for normal to dry skin. The back of the bottle claims you can restore skin to a glowing, healthy look and velvet-smooth vitality. **What's it like?** Well, for starters it has quite a curious smell, a mixture between sun tan lotion and e45 cream, some might say it's a bit of an old lady smell! Whilst it's not unpleasant, it is quite strong so I tend to use it at night before bed. The bottle also claims that it is non greasy and if you give it a couple of minutes to sink in I think this is true. **Verdict** Whilst I won't use it every day, this body lotion is a total bargain and will last ages. It's a good credit-crunching product and sinks in really well. I'd consider taking a bottle of this on holiday for post-sunbathing moisturising. My skin feels soft and rehydrated since using this product. I think I'll get some more!
