Review: Himalaya Herbals Soothing Body Lotion (Dry Skin)

Ladies & Gentlemen..
Here with a review of my Holy Grail Body Lotion (so far)...
Himalaya Herbals Soothing Body Lotion, Dry Skin.

So far..after several trails..ive finally found a Body Lotion thats good for my dry body skin.

What the product claims:

"A daily use, non-greasy body lotion with
Almond and Orange oils that penetrate deep into your skin to replenish lost moisture and ensure essential moisture balance, to keep your skin soft and supple. Sunflower oil softens and smoothens the dry and rough skin. Apricot kernel oil revitalizes the skin while Grapes, with their antioxidant activity, control blemishes and breakouts, and preserve the youth of your skin.

Directions for Use:
Best used after a bath when your skin is most receptive.

  1. Nourishes
  2. Moisturizes
  3. Protects

Pack size:
Soothing Body Lotion for Dry Skin is available in pack size of 200 ml & 400 ml.

Key Ingredients:
Each ml contains:

Sunflower oil (Helianthus annus)
44 mg

Grapes (Vitis vinifera)
20 mg

Apricot kernel oil (Prunus armeniaca)
1.5 mg

Flax seed oil (Linum usitatissimum)
1.5 mg

Orange oil (Citrus aurantium)
1.5 mg

Sweet Almond oil (Prunus amygdalus)
1.5 mg" to move on with the main part of the are the tid-bits..

Costs around 200INR for 400ml.. and 100INR for 200ml. The prices mentioned are not exact..its just a rough figure that I could remember so far. So, when it comes to Himalaya Herbals price range, they are quite affordable or to say quite cheap for what the result they deliver. U need not think twice if u r on a budget.

Its got citrus tones to it. Or much like an orange. But I love the fragrance. It may be strong after bath, but vanishes after sometime.

Much like a Body Lotion to say..If uve tried Vaseline White..its somewhere near to it.

Time to Absorb:
This is the worst quality of this product. It takes its own time to sink/absorb in to skin. U have to apply it, massage it twice or thrice to get the lotion soak in. Its horrible if its summer, though i manage it by applyin just a little during those hot/humid days.

Is it greasy?? is greasy..but if ur body skin is dry.ul have that glowy look, but not the greasy feel. Basically, my body skin being dry, i prefer bodylotions, which adds some shimmer or glow. So this is not a prblem for me. But for those with normal/oily skin, they may suffocate like hell.

Does it moisturize enough??
Damn good.. Its my reliable lotion during winters. During summers, as i said, manage by applying just a tiny amount. Infact it used to moisturize so good, that my skin would behave normal, though i skip applying it the next day..u know when u r busy or tired..

Other Pros
My skin being dry, it shows up with some dark paches now and then. This lotion totally toned them down and my skin started to show off that brilliant glow. U know as though uve applied some sheer bronze. I done with all the things u need to say abt while Reviewing a product..?? I think i have to mention the Cons as well.. So here u go..

Nothing so far..atleast for me..but takes forever to sink in to the skin..

And now for the latest news..
Just is the time, when I went searching the Himalaya Herbals Website, to get the prduct details and to my surprise, came to know that they've discontinued this product and introduced 2 products in.
Now I dont know whether either of the Protecting Body Lotion or the Nourishing Body Lotion will do just like the older one. But im sick of it..because earlier I used to love their Shampoo, but as soon as theyve changethe formula..i totally disliked it. Now Im a bit concerned what happens with this.
I just want to cry out.."Himalaya..Why do u have to change them when they are damn good..!!"

  7. A young skin renews its surface layers every two to three weeks. Over time, as we age and our skin experience sun, stress, pollution, poor diet and poor water intake, the cell turnover rate slows down causing the upper most layer of the skin to become thicker.More various body butter visit:
