Body lotion – Garnier body Cocoon (Product review)


By Adivaah
Garnier I have tried body lotions like Nivea and  Vaseline for my dry skin but they didn’t prove much effective for the extreme dryness and I had to reapply the lotion often. Before I bought this, I had seen the Garnier Body Cocoon ad so many times on the TV but I just gave it pass thinking it wouldn’t be that effective. Then finally, one day when I ran out of Vaseline lotion I went to the nearest super market to get a new bottle, while having a look at the different products I noticed the Garnier Cocoon and decided to try it just because of the fact that it is manufactured by well known brand L’Oreal. And I’m very happy I did that because this has proven to be my  best  body lotion.

What does Garnier claim about this product? 

 If your skin feels dry, rough, flaky and  tight, Garnier Body Cocoon moisturising lotion will soothe and restore the skin’s suppleness, leaving it feeling unbelievably soft.

Its creamy yet light texture is instantly absorbed into the skin-enveloping it in a nourishing cocoon of softness, leaving it deliciously fragranced.
It has nutritive fruit oils from apricots, olives, blackcurrants and avocados to deliver an immediate burst of moisture to the skin.
Garnier uses, wherever possible, active natural ingredients which have been carefully extracted to preserve their quality and purity. Products have been dermatologically tested to ensure respect to your skin.

Pros of Garnier body Cocoon

This certainly is a very good moisturizing lotion & is very effective in soothing & restoring the skin’s suppleness.

The texture is very light and  not very runny, just bit of rubbing for a few seconds and it easily gets absorbed without leaving an oily film.
The fragrance is very mild and smells like fruits because of the presence of fruit oils from apricots, olives, blackcurrants and avocados.

 Aromatic Palm oil softens and heals cracked skin, renews and purifies damaged tissues, eliminates dry skin cells and prevents infection.                   
Olive oil can also help relieve sunburn. Olive Oil contains polyphenol compounds that act as antioxidants to help prevent and repair damage to the skin done by accidental sun exposure.
Black currants have a very high content in antioxidants and vitamins.
Avocado is high in sterolins, which are reputed to reduce age spots, help heal sun damage and scars. It is the sterolins (also called plant steroids) in the oil that helps to soften  the skin and imparts a superior moisturizing effect 
Grape seed oil has mildly astringent qualities, which help to tighten and tone the skin, making it a good cosmetic ingredient for anti-aging products. It is light and finely textured oil and is non-comedogenic.
Apricot oil is often used for body massage and for keeping the skin all glowing and healthy.
The visible results claim is completely true because as soon as I apply this and  rub for a few  seconds,I see an instant glow and  smoother and softer skin. I totally love this for the instant results.

For me, this softness lasts for atleast 6 hours & after that though it doesn’t look dry but I feel an urge to apply it once again because of the smooth feeling. So the claim that it acts like a cocoon is very true.
This product is affordable, because of the texture you need a little amount and  this will come a long way.
The packaging is very decent and hygienic! It’s an orange coloured bottle with a flip cap, which can be carried in a bag as well & will not be messy at all.
This has proved to be a very good body lotion for my dry skin during all weathers.
Cons of Garnier body Cocoon:
This doesn’t spread in a jiff; you at least need a few seconds of rubbing, people who rush to work will not like this.
Will I buy this again?  Yes I will, I have been doing this and  will continue because this has really stood up to its claims of providing cocoon to the body and retaining the moisture and  smoothness!

  4. anamika, my skin is facial skin is combinational skin, which is now tending to be drier. And body skin is dry. I heavily urge fr moisturization.

  5. well body cocoon is definitely a good product, but for those with extreme dry skin i suggest cetaphil(the one for dry skin), its worth buying.
