Mygirlypedia was quite silent for last few days, as I was unwell… All thanks to the unpredictable climate… Its sometimes hot and sometimes rains… Phewww….
Since the weather outside is getting colder day by day.( Winter is coming…!!!!), my skin is slowly turning dry. As I have my squad ready to combat dry skin, I am writing this post for you so that you get prepared for fighting against dry skin too.
I have tried a lot many body lotions. Read ‘lot many’ twice. #wink So here are reviews of some of the body lotions I had bought more than once, for my ‘dry skin’. Read on to know my take on these.
Himalaya Herbals Intensive Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Body Lotion
This I had picked up once I was traveling. The word ‘Cocoa‘ is enough to sale a body lotion for me. Plus, this is travel and pocket friendly. When it comes to its effectiveness, this didn’t help with dark patches/marks but it did moisturized my skin for a good amount of time for 5-6 hours. Compared to the money I had spent on this, I was happy with the results.
Price: 126 INR for 200 ml

Parachute Advanced Deep Nourish Body Lotion
Are you a lover of coconut and its aroma??? You will love this lotion. Its non sticky, light lotion. Smells like coconut sweet dish. It moisturizes your skin nicely for approximately 9 hours. Available online as well as in local stores.
Price: 218 INR for 400 ml

Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion
Once upon a time my mornings were incomplete without this lotion. Post bath must was this one. It smells heavenly. It locks moisture for a very good duration of 7-8 hours. I will definitely recommend this to you. Between I cheated on this lotion for the next lotion, ONLY because I was kind of bored with this one. (Excuse me if this sentence sounds weird.)
Price: 120 INR for 250 ml

Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Glow Butter Lotion to Dry Skin
This is my most favorite body lotion. No matter how many times I get bored and decide to try something new, I end up coming back to this.
Again the Cocoa, the one who adds glow... The fragrance is delicious(trust me it is). Apart from doing its regular job of adding moisture, it does lighten the dark patches or marks on your skin. Thus making your skin lighter and glow. The moisture it locks stays for really long. For me, its a magic. I apply it in the morning post bath. My skin stays moisturized through out the day. ..!!! Highly recommended for dry skinned beauties. Also it is affordable and available in local drug stores.
Price: 212 INR for 300 ml

Vaseline Healthy White SPF 24 Triple Lightening
Another version of the previous lotion but smells entirely different huun. It had added benefits of SPF 24 which helps in protecting skin from harsh UV rays. You might be thinking do we really need SPF during winter. I would say yes. The cloudy weather and the sun rays are deadly combination for skin. They do more harm. Thus SPF is must. If you ask does this really works when it comes to skin whitening… I would say the effect was kind of temporary. Skin feels light when its on. As the lotion fades, natural shade of skin gets visible. As per as moisturizing is concerned, it does a moderate job.
Price: 263 INR for 300 ml
