Review of The Body Shop Strawberry Body Lotion by CountessDementia
I've always loved The Body Shop's body lotions, my body moisturizer of choice during the warmer months. In the hot humid Malaysian climate, the body butters have never failed to make me feel like a walking oil slick. Never so with the lotions, which absorb readily into sun-parched skin to leave it soft, smooth, supple and vibrantly fragranced. Like my other favourites Mango and Satsuma, Strawberry is lush and ripe in its tropical sweetness....a pure explosion of summer. The scent is so beautiful and long-lasting, often lingering up to 12 hours after application. I'm currently layering it with Victoria's Secret's Grapefruit Kiss and Crabtree & Evelyn's Pink Grapefruit and Cucumber body mists to add a tart citrus hint to the juicy berry sweetness. The texture and consistency are light yet moisture-rich, and keeps my skin looking dewy-fresh all day long. Plus points for the effective packaging too. The twist-and-pump nozzle makes application a real treat, and it's handy for travel purposes too. I can't tell you how many expensive lotions I've had explode in my luggage despite repeated checks on tightening bottle caps. This has never been an issue with a TBS body lotion. Here in Malaysia, this lotion retails for RM 36, a wallet-friendly departure from my usual high-end department store buys. But for the divine quality and scent, this is one cheapie product I find myself coming back to time and time again. Highly recommended!
