Valentino Rock n Rose Body Lotion
Advantages: Nice and soft for the skin.
This one comes in a really pretty bottle which is made of a sturdy plastic and it has a small hole at the top of the bottle to release the lotion. It is a nice baby pink colour, it has a black top of which is quite fancy with nice diamond shapes which point towards the top of the top. The top can easily be twisted to take it off the bottle. The bottle has the name clearly on the front. I love the design of the bottle and it looks really attractive on my dresser in my bedroom. Pink is my favourite colour and so the bottle matches my bedroom colours.
Inside the bottle the lotion is white in colour and I can detect a hint of pink colour, the smell of the lotion is very apparent as soon as the top is removed from the bottle. It has a really nice fragrance and it smells of a floral fragrance in my opinion. The fragrance is quite a strong one but not too overpowering for a more expensive lotion. The lotion can be easily squeeze from the bottle because it is plastic, even thought it is quite a strong plastic it is very easy to just give it a quick squeeze to release the lotion. I tend to squeeze this one onto the palm of my hands and then just rub it gently into my skin. This one is not too thick, it has a thinner consistency. I first thought that it would be much thicker when I first saw my gift but I was wrong, the consistency is much thinner than I imagined it would be. It is however not a runny consistency, it does not run from my hands while applying it to my skin. This one does soak into the skin quite quickly and it absorbs really well. It does not feel tacky or sticky on the skin when it is applied or after it has dried.
My skin feels absolutely soft and smooth once it has dried and while applying it I can definitely smell the fragrance. I apply it to my arms, legs and torso. I find that it does not irritate my skin at all and I have sensitive skin and I have had not problems at all since I began using this one. It moisturises really well. I can definitely smell the fragrance on my skin for quite some time after application. It lasts for such a long time. It gives my body that extra smell along with my perfumes. I more often than not use this one for when I am going out for the day, since it is a more expensive lotion I would rather just use it for my outings instead of using it on the days I am at home. I have used it a few times when I am staying indoors too but just for my outdoor days I much prefer to use it on those occasions since it is a more expensive lotion. This is just my preference with an expensive one so that the bottle lasts a lot longer. This one I would say is suitable for using day and night and even if you do not go out for the day it is still nice to give your body a nice smell. I really do love this one for when I am going out for the evening to a party etc, I find it gives that little bit of extra fragrance for my body and a nice treat.
Only a small amount is needed for this one to soften the skin. It makes the skin nice and soft and extremely smooth. I have a few dry patches on my body and so I just pay a little extra attention to those areas and just apply a little extra lotion and it has helped to soften those areas perfectly well. A little really does go a very long way too with this one. I first thought when I saw the bottle size, that it would be gone in no time at all but I was wrong, there is still quite a bit left in the bottle. It is extremely a good quality lotion, hence why only a small amount is needed to soften the skin.
The size of the bottle is not too big, it measures approximately 4 inches from the base to the top. The width of the bottle measures approximately 2 inches, it is a chunky kind of bottle and sits well on a dresser without tipping over as some other brands I have found tend to do, this one is absolutely fine. It is a really nice size to place in an over night bag. It is ideal for these occasions so that a nice smelling lotion is in the bag for those special nights out. It is a lightweight bottle and weighs very little for travelling.
I do not honestly know how much this one costs because I said earlier in my review it was a gift from my mum. I would most definitely highly recommend this one because it has a long lasting, super fragrance and in my opinion a perfume spray would not even be necessary to use along side this one because this one does have a strong enough perfume smell and one that is just like wearing a perfume and could be used as an alternative. Some lotions do not often give such a long lasting fragrance but this one most definitely does in my opinion.
I would most definitely buy this one with no hesitation. It is a beautiful lotion with the added bonus of the lasting smell on the skin. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a more expensive lotion because I just think you would not be at all disappointed with this lotion. It gives me all the results that I expect from a good brand of lotion.
It would make a lovely gift for someone special and I am so grateful my mum bought me this beautiful body lotion.
I give it 5 stars.
