I love the vanilla fragrance and i like a little shimmer in my body lotions for parties and the like.So that is what made me buy this body lotion without even testing it at the store.. Good move or a bad one ?Read on:
- Price : Rs 795
This lotion smells like vanilla heaped with lots and lots of sugar! It smelled sickly sweet to me but the good part is the sweetness settles down in a while and your are left with a okayish vanilla fragrance on your body!
The lotion is very moisturizing and rich. In Mumbai (India) one doesn’t need heavy body lotions unless you have very dry skin. I have normal to oily skin and this one takes care of my moisturizing requirements.I applied it in the evening and my skin felt moisturized till the next morning.
The packaging is a plus point as it’s a pump packaging and the pump gets locked on twisting it, so it is a travel friendly bottle.
But this is where the good part ends! The lotion is thick and very difficult to blend into the skin. The shimmer in the body lotion isn’t soft enough to give u glowing look. It’s the obvious shimmer making you feel like you played in glitter..! The biggest faux pas here is that the shimmer is SILVER!!!And it is not the fine silver but a gritty one! It sort of looks cheap when seen up close.I seriously feel if the shimmer was a gold or a champagne color this product would be great .Most Indian skin tones cannot carry off full on silver shimmer.
The shimmer is very visible on the skin and instead of giving a soft, lit from within look it makes you feel like you played with a Christmas tree all day long.!
This year the TBS collection disappoints and the fragrances of the other two ranges are also very medicinal! Skip it!

I don’t think I really need to list out pros and cons after reading the review!

My rating 2/5… 2 just for moisturizing properties and the pump packaging.
