The Body Shop Mango Whip Body Lotion : Review, Swatch

I am a huge fan of The Body Shop when it comes to their skin care and I have mentioned it earlier too. When I don't know what to choose for my dry skin I go straight to The Body Shop and their scrubs, shower gels, lotions and body butters have always helped me. From then on I made sure I always had back up of their products to help me during emergency. When summers started I did remember a couple (or more) of their mini body lotions I had and I started using the Mango Whip version first.


I love mangoes and that is the only thing I like about summers ! As soon I took this body lotion I opened it to sniff the fragrance of true yummy mango but unfortunately it smelled more artificial like that of a mango essence mixed with a lot of butter ! The fragrance was neither fresh nor strong :( I had to squeeze the bottle to get the lotion out and unlike what I had imagined the lotion was really light, flowy and got absorbed immediately. Though it mentions that the lotion is meant for very dry skin, even if you have normal skin you will love this body lotion. 

  • The lotion is not very thick.
  • Gets absorbed instantly.
  • Leaves the skin soft and supple.
  • No strong fragrance.
  • Travel friendly mini bottles.

  • You won't find any significant Mango fragrance.
  • A bit difficult to get the product out.
  • Though it says it is meant for very dry skin, they might need those heavy body butters and not this body lotion.


The price of  The Body Shop Mango Whip mini body lotion that comes in a set of four mini body lotions is Rs.1250  Rs.1125 for 4 * 60 ml.


The Body Shop Mango Whip body lotion suits this summer so much. Since the lotion is light, it gets absorbed instantly by the skin. I take it with me in my bag while travelling and it comes so handy this summer. Skin feels soft and glowy after applying this. Though this claims to be made for very dry skin it would also suit dry skin and normal skin. These mini ones are available only during few festive season or sale so keep an eye on the TBS store whenever you go across that way.

  1. I'm not a huge fan of TBS.. I feel their products have never really worked for me but I still keep stocking them :)

    I've never felt the need for body lotion. But got tempted after I read mango. Good thing the smell doesn't last long. Otherwise I would have gone ahead and purchased

    1. Haa Haa :) Be happy that you can't find these easily :)

  2. hvnt seen this one around but i will keep an eye :)
