What do I use it for?
I use it as a body moisturiser.

How do I use it?
I use it as it states on the packaging, after a shower. Sometimes I use it before I got to bed, however considering I shower before I go to bed, it’s kind of the same thing. I apply it all over my body starting from the feet, massaging them a little bit if I can be bothered. Then I apply to my legs using a circular motion, torso, arms and the rest rubbed into my hands.

My verdict?
The body lotion is not as thick as I would like a ‘body butter’ to be. I’d say the consistency is more like a thick body lotion, not as liquid-y but certainly not quite as solid or thick as a ‘body butter’. It will keep you moisturised for a couple of days but for nice, hydrated skin I would apply everyday. It won’t cure very dehydrated, scaly skin but it will temporarily improve the appearance of dry skin.
The scent leans more towards the pink grapefruit side. It’s quite refreshing and pleasant if you like the scent of pink grapefruit, as I do. The scent does smell artificial although not grotesquely so. The scent does last during application and it lingers for a short time afterwards. If I apply it after a shower in the morning I will get very slight hints of this throughout the day but it is quite faint.
I love that it sinks in quite quickly. I am able to get dressed after a few minutes without feeling sticky or uncomfortable.
I believe there are four different scents including Peach & Pear (orange), Coconut & Lime (green) and Pineapple & Passionfruit (yellow).

Rating:

Although the price is very affordable, it does not provide enough moisturisation for me and it’s not the best scent I have experienced.
