Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange Eucalyptus & Sage Skin Refreshing Body Lotion : Photos, Review, Swatch

My skin does demand moisturizers even during summers as I feel it makes my skin much more shiny and smooth after using a moisturizer. So all I would need is a light body lotion when compared to those heavy body butters that I use during winters ! So I had to stock up one such body lotion and I remembered I had the Crabtree and Evelyn Tarocco Orange Eucalyptus & Sage Skin Refreshing Body Lotion. Just started using it and I thought I would review it today.

Description

The body lotion comes in a tube packaging with a flip open cap. The outer cover has this attractive prints that can be found in all C&E products and I have to agree that these pictures tempt me too. The body lotion is a flow-y liquid that is super easy to spread and my dry skin instantly absorbs it. So, for this reason I had kept it aside for those quick mornings when I really have to rush yet can't skip a body lotion ! After application my skin feels smooth but the effect lasts only for a couple of hours !

I have to talk about the fragrance here - it predominantly smells of orange and some masculine fragrance that reminds me of some old shaving lotion/cream my dad use to have !! However, this one definitely smells fresh on the skin but not very sweet or fruity. Sadly, the fragrance vanishes pretty quickly and I don't really smell anything after 30 mins !

  • Tube packaging is very hygienic and convenient to use.
  • Smells of oranges at the same time the fragrance is not very strong.
  • The tube is very convenient to use during travel.
  • The body lotion is light and thus gets absorbed easily.

Verdict

This is a good body lotion for summers [fragrance is perfect for the season too] and especially for oily skin this would be just perfect. Since I have dry skin, my skin drinks this body lotion [like how i would gulp down a chilled juice during summers] within seconds after application. My skin does feel soft and supple for a while but I have to reapply at least a couple of times in the same day ! I am too lazy for all this reapplication so I might not repurchase this ! You can see the hand cream that came with the kit here.
