Temperatures are soaring and the heat made me want to upgrade my body care routine for the summer. Sweat is the most common problem I can face this season and it can also lead to bad body odour if not kept in check. Now, as much as I’d like to stay fresh all day, it isn’t advisable to wear deodorant all over; and so my favourite alternative is to opt for body lotions that also refresh my skin rather than simply moisturise. While I do have some pretty unique scented moisturisers that I reach for all year round, this season I needed a formula that would moisturise without leaving a sheen on my skin and some cooling action that would keep me feeling invigorated. After searching high and low, I finally came across this soothing body lotion that has cooling ingredients like cucumber and aloe vera. Of course, I had to try it and I’m glad I did because this one is the only body moisturiser I’m using all summer. Here’s why I think it’s the bomb.
The Oriental Botanics Aloe Vera, Green Tea & Cucumber Body Lotion moisturises and delivers a cooling effect. It thoroughly hydrates and refreshes skin and does not leave any greasy residue behind. This moisturiser also helps calm inflammation caused by sun exposure or body acne and keeps skin looking radiant and feeling soft and plump.
The formula is just amazing. This body lotion actually cools my skin and there’s no lie when it claims to make skin super soft and hydrated without greasiness. And a little goes a long way with this one. The milky formula transforms to a gel-like consistency and spreads out to envelope your body with soothing moisture and disappears into the skin. It also has a mild cucumber fragrance that is just a treat to the senses.
Texture – 9/10
Packaging – 10/10
Formula – 10/10
Apply it on clean skin after a bath. Open the cap of the tube and squeeze out a dollop of moisturiser. Dot the areas you want to moisturise with the lotion and then massage it in. Apply sunscreen over it once the lotion is absorbed into your skin.
