The Body Shop Shea Whip Body Lotion Review

The Body Shop Shea Whip Body Lotion (Rs 595 for 250 ml) available at Flipkart
So after using Shea Body butter in winters, I went ahead and bought The Body Shop Shea Whip Body Lotion. The major difference between these two is that Shea Body Butter is thicker and adds extra layer of moisture.

What TBS Says
Its Best if you want to Indulge in a light, fluffy moisturizer that leaves your skin soft, smooth, and supple with a fresh, classic scent. Best for Very Dry skin.This lightweight whipped body lotion has a subtle nutty scent. It hydrates dry skin and leaves it feeling soft and smooth. 
• Light, whipped texture 
• Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth 
• Subtle nutty scent
How it works:
  1. Community Trade shea butter moisturizes and helps to soften skin; has antioxidant vitamins A and E to help protect and nourish skin.
  2. Community Trade organic babassu oil moisturizes skin.
  3. Sunflower seed oil softens and moisturizes skin.
Directions to use:
Pump the lotion into your hand and smooth onto the skin. Apply as often as required.
Why I liked this
The Body Shop Shea Whip Body Lotion is an excellent stuff for people like me who have terribly dry skin. Its very moisturising without being greasy. Absorbs easily despite of the thick texture. The packaging is great, I really like pump bottles. Smell is strong nutty but I like it. I carry it along to work in a travel-size bottle (purchased from QVS) and reapply if and when required.

 I love these travel size bottles from QVS
Any Dislikes:
  1. Though The Body Shop Shea Whip Body Lotion is very moisturising I still have to reapply it during the day specially on the driest parts of my body (e.g. legs).
  2. People who dislike strong fragrances wouldn’t like it.
My Ratings: 4/5 
Would I repurchase : I have dry skin and very dry legs, so I definitely need a heavy duty body lotion like this one. The Body Shop Shea Whip Body Lotion is going to last for at least 3-4 months. I might repurchase it during winters.
