We’re leaving the monsoon season behind and heading towards milder weather but hotter months. So when it comes to body care products, body lotion might be the last thing you want to use as part of your self-care routine.
But as someone who is constantly being in air-conditioned rooms and workspace, I cannot forego body lotion applications. My originally normal skin has transitioned for the worst ever since I’ve started working in the office about 5 years ago and body lotion is such a staple on my workspace; both at the office and currently at home.
While I do indulge in highly moisturising hand and foot creams, I would prefer to use lightweight yet hydrating body lotions. I don’t mind reapplications throughout the day so I definitely would appreciate for my body lotions to come with a nice pump as well and if it can prolong the scent of my daily perfumes, that’s a bonus!
Speaking of perfumes, I love continuity of scents from my body wash to my daily perfumes so I’m so happy when I discovered this Delicious Glow Body Lotion from Love Beauty & Planet while also enjoying the Body Wash sister as I absolutely in love with the scent of the Murumuru Butter and Rose aroma.
- This Body Lotion provides 24 hours moisturization and the formula is infused with natural murumuru butter which is a lot like coconut oil and comes from the white fat found in the nuts of the Amazonian murumuru palm tree. This fat is known to be deeply moisturizing so it helps nourish, soften and protect against dryness.
- It has a warm, floral rose fragrance.
How to Use:
Massage liberally on your skin everyday.
Capacity: 400ml – about 80 applications. I only use this in the morning so that’s about 3 to 4 months of daily use for me.
Water, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Glycol Stearate, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Fragrance, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Triethanolamine, Glyceryl Stearate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Cetyl Alcohol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Carbomer, BHT, Disodium EDTA, Stearamide AMP, Tocopherol
Basically, the product comes in a sturdy clear plastic bottle so it’s easy to monitor the amount of product left in the bottle. There are product description and ingredients list printed at the back of the bottle in English for your convenience.
At the bottom of the bottle, there is the product expiry date printed in the format of EXP DDMMYY (Date-Month-Year).
The body lotion comes with a great pump as it dispenses out appropriate amount of product every time and I can simply push it down and twist to securely lock in order to prevent spillage while travel although I would usually just decant my body lotion in a smaller container. For domestic travel however, I would be carrying the whole bottle for my family members and I as we always travel together.
The body lotion is in that lovely white colour as with most body lotions do. I usually need 3 to 4 pumps of the product for my whole body.
I can tell that the lotion definitely leave some sort of film on skin as it retains the moisture but not to worry, as it only feels slightly sticky on skin. Although I don’t think those who easily sweat during the day would appreciate this but as my skin is a little bit dehydrated with some flaky area along my calves, the considerably lightweight texture is sufficient enough.
Overall, I give this body lotion 5/5. I personally love the buttery rosy scent because I love this kind of scent to begin with but half the people around me don’t find the scent appealing at all so yes, it’s either you really like the scent or not a fan of it.
Looking at the ingredients list, there are 5 ingredients (underlined above in the list) that are not suitable for those with fungal acne so definitely avoid using this product if you’re one. I have been using this body lotion for months now I’m halfway through the bottle already and I haven’t experience any irritation so far which is great.
Also, if you are into vegan body products then this brand is surely interesting enough to check out plus with each purchase, RM1 will be donated to the Malaysian Nature Society for the conservation of the Malayan Tapir. Awesome, right?
