I was bought this last Christmas as part of a gift set. When i first smelt the perfume I wasn't overly impressed so I put these products to one side. I was going for a night out and had run out of my usual scented body lotion so I picked this up to use and was very pleasantly surprised. The smell is lovely in comparison to the perfume and it lasted all night! It was great and I even got a few comments on what I was wearing. My skin felt very soft as well which was great as I had bare legs. Even though it doesn't say it I found there was a nice shimmer to this body lotion when I applied it- it made my skin look really healthy and glowing- always a bonus.
I would recommend this lotion for anyone who wants the scent to last all day and who wants lovely glowing skin- however I just wish the perfume smelled as nice so I could have worn them together and made the most of the scent.
As it was my birthday a few weeks ago Ive managed to get a massive list of products that Im yet to review and as my product suggestions are through the roof at the minute I thought Id write about a few of my presents today starting with the ones I like and use the most. Perfume is always a brilliant thing to buy for me whenever and as my family know this - I drop a lot of hints - they always buy me perfume sets of scents I use a lot. This year I happened to get a large SJP NYC set which I was very happy with as I love the perfume but hadnt tried out any of the other same scented products so I was overjoyed to get this 'Sarah Jessica Parker NYC Body Lotion' in the large set. I started using it straight away as I love layering up products of the same scent and this has quickly become one of my favourite body lotions - I even use it while on the go!
Price: Singular bottle - Around £4 (The large set I got was £25 which included this lotion, a shower gel & a 50ml bottle of the perfume).
Stockists: CheapSmells & Amazon.
Other Info: This product is available in 50 & 75ml tubes. This cream can be used alone of layered up with the proper perfume and can be applied all over your body. I personally wouldnt use this on my face as it is very perfumed BUT apparantly you can do that.
This cream comes in a medium sized and VERY hot pink 75ml tube which I have to say is instantly noticable and a very nice colour! I like the fact that the lotion is in a tube rather than a bottle or a tub as it makes it much easier to apply and is much more hygenic - and I believe it comes in the same tube regardless of whether you get it in a set or buy it alone. On the front and back of the tube is all the information you could need - shelf life, ingredients, directions for use etc and if you have any additional questions or problems there is a website address you can write to with them so everything should be answered either on the tube or by the website. The packaging is gorgeous I think - very SJP - and practical as well as I can even use this on the move - my skin needs a lot of lotion in this sunny weather so the tube design is perfect for me. And the colour certainly makes an impact!
The cream itself is a light pink/white and is typical lotion consistency in my opinion. It is quite runny but it does feel very light and that usually means it is easily absorbed - so just what I want from an everyday, average body lotion. Dont get me wrong it isnt as good as a body butter on areas like my knees and elbows but it doesnt claim to be and I didnt expect it to be so I cant complain too much about that. This feels very light on my skin and it sinks in really quickly so I dont have to wait around to get dressed which is basically everything I want from a body lotion. And thankfully this doesnt leave any kind of residue behind on my skin after its sunk in and my skin doesnt feel clogged or heavy so the consistency of this is as close to perfect as possible and works wonders for my skin type.
The scent of this lotion was obviously the main reason I bought it and Im happy to say it has not let me down. This smells exactly like the proper SJP NYC perfume so much so I can wear this alone and still feel like Ive sprayed myself with the EDP. It has the same gorgeous fruity and sweet fragrance which goes with the summery weather perfectly and although it is strong enough to be worn alone and still be noticable it does smell even better - and lasts longer - when you layer it up with the perfume. The scent lasts all day long on my skin and I absolutely adore it - Im very glad I got the set to try out as the lotion is just as nice as the perfume is - scent wise anyway! Again Im happy to say that the results are great as well, my skin feels very hydrated and moisturised after Ive used this and it even helps prevent it from drying out in this hot weather like it normally does. The scent is stunning but it alos makes me skin feel great as well so I cant find fault with it. Cheers for the birthday pressie mom! Highly recommended - get the set as then you can layer up all of the gorgeous products.
Thanks For Reading.
