I got this body lotion as part of a set I received for my birthday, originally i didn't want to use any of them because the packaging was so cute but i finally decided I should start using them to see if I like them or not.
I have to say I was hugely disappointed by this product, the smell is awful it makes me feel sick. it is far too artificial smelling there is absolutely NO natural scent to it. I also found that it was very sticky to apply however I must add that it is moisturizing and fast absorbing so the sticky feeling does go away quickly.
I will not be repurchasing this product however it is not a bad moisturizer for normal skin if you can get over the smell.
I love the smell of fresh cut strawberries and had high hopes that this body lotion would mimic that wonderful scent. It failed miserably ! The first whiff just about blew the top of my head off, it's way too artificial and sickly sweet. I don't have dry skin so I never need a heavy moisturizer even in winter. This lotion was thin and only moisturized lightly, which was fine but the sticky feeling was so horrible. It absorbs very fast but leaves a very sticky residue, this eventually dissipates after about two minutes but the fact that it does this just really puts me off ever using it again. I also find that my skin feels dry after using this, perhaps it contains a high alcohol content. I also find this to be expensive for a small body lotion, I'm glad I bought this on sale so I don't feel so bad pouring it down the sink !
Makes me feel like a strawberry :3
Smells wonderful, sinks into the skin fast, doesn't have that sticky finish. Good for after the morning shower, and you really don't have time to wait your body lotion to sink in and not stick to your clothes.
It smells really good but a bit too sweet :/ it glides on my skin like a wonder and soaks in pretty well but feels a little sticky :/ I can feel my tank top sticking to my skin after putting on the lotion. I would use up every last bit but wouldn't buy again.
I love this lotion because of how fast it soaks into the skin and i can whack on my clothes without that sticky feeling. When i use other lotions and moisturisers i find it so much hard for my jeans to slide on haha.. its like they get stuck so i have to sit and wait for it to sink in which is a time waster.... except for Payot... i don't have a sticky feeling with their moisturiser. Personally i like the scent and i can sniff that sweet smell all day haha.
This lotion/puree is absolutley amazing... I am not sure how good of a job it does at moisturizing your skin, because I use it on top of a shea butter lotion i use every night and day, but it smells WONDERFUL. Its called a puree for a reason, everytime you put it on it feels and smells like you cut up chunks of strawberries and smothered them all over your body. There is no other smells of chemicals or additives- it smells exactly like fruit, nothing more nothing less. I also love that there products are as natural as they come, and they do not test on animals... you would be shocked if you really knew how many companies do actually test on animals. Smells amazing, all natural with no added chemicals and no testing on animals? its a win win... however you do pay the price as their products are not cheap. They have several sales through out the year- usually in Nov and Dec that help a little with the prices. I will pay the money for this product though... its well worth every penny.
I bought this solely for the smell, which I think is absolutely delicious. Reminds me of some sort of candy I had as a child. Putting it on makes me feel wonderful.
As far as moisturising goes, it's very light. Speads easily and quickly, but it doesn't do much for dry patches, and sometimes leaves a sticky residue if you don't rub it in 100%. But like I said, I use it more for the yummy smell!
This product smells just like a fruit smoothie at first but after a few minutes it tends to get a chemical-y fake strawberry smell. It isn't terrible, and I feel like I keep going back and forth between smelling the fruit smoothie and chemical scent. Like other reviewers have said, this is a light lotion, but the bottle says it is for normal skin so I can't complain about that. I really like the pretty pink color, but I wish that it didn't contain artificial colors. This was my first bodyshop product and I really wasn't overly impressed.
1. Pleasant cooling effect
2. Convenient packaging
3. Spreads easily, gel texture
4. No oily residue
1. The scent might be too sweet and artificial
2. Not moisturizing enough for my normal skin
Won't buy gain!
The smell of fake strawberry is very strong and may be too sweet for some people. After applying, it doesn't have a sticky feeling which I liked. It helps a little as a moisturizer. A little goes a long way so I won't be repurchasing this product for a long time.
