I received this for review couple of months back and I have been using it since then.
The Look: A creamy white emulsion
The Smell: Nice amalgamation of citrus and floral notes, which lasts for sometime and lingers on through the day.
My Take: The lotion has a remarkably light texture and gets absorbed completely without leaving any oily film. It equally hydrates and makes the skin smooth. Over time with usage, I feel it has a mild exfoliation effect on the dead skin cells of the skin. I would recommend it to people with oily to normal skin, and it is a lotion ideal for use during summers. It doesn’t make the skin lighter or fairer though, but it does improve the skin texture.
I recommend it to people for its awesome texture and skin smoothening properties.
- Improves skin texture
- Nice lingering smell
- Gets absorbed easily
- Makes the skin smooth
- No lightening effect on skin
Price: INR 249 for 200ml
Product Score: 4/5
Product sent by brand, but honest review.
Well, I really love this lotion 🙂 and thats it ?….. Somehow, I don’t feel like writing nowadays, well the soaring temperatures in Bangalore might be to blame…….
…… If possible, I could just post pictures and let them do the talking ………….
The look: A white emulsion that is moderately thick
The smell: Very nice , and mild
My Take: Well, to just put in ………decent and good body lotion ! I did not notice any lightening or whitening effects , well I don’t expect it from any products now :). A good body lotion for normal to oily skin types and also great for summers and if you have dry skin, then search for something else 🙂
Price: INR 295 for 300 ml

I was tempted to buy this solely for its heavenly aroma. Few months back, I had reviewed the TBS Peach Shower Gel too, which also had a refreshing smell of real peaches! So read on to see how it fared 🙂
The Look: A thick milkshake kind of texture with a light peachy pink hue.
The Aroma: Heavenly, smells of real peaches I guess 🙂 very fruity and refreshing.
My experience: I bought this last December to satiate my quest for a really moisturizing body lotion. The SA in the TBS outlet told me that peach body lotion is suited to dry skin, though I could not find anything written on the bottle. The texture is thick and milky, and spreads easily. Also, the aroma is heavenly, and it lingers on for quite some time especially on the clothes. So it fares really well in all fronts except the moisturizing factor, hmm infact this is the most important aspect. This is not as moisturizing as is expected of a lotion, meant for dry skin. Rather, I would call it a body lotion suited for normal to oily skins or a summer moisturizer. This is not a perfect winter moisturizer, especially if you seek intensive hydration. So, I would not recommend it to dry skinned beauties, though it is ideal for normal to oily skin types.
Price: INR 795
Summary: Great smell, to die for, the sole reason to buy this 🙂 . A moisturizer suited for oily to normal skins and for the summer season. The fruity smell lingers on and adds to its USP as as a ideal summer body lotion. If you have dry skin, it might leave your skin craving for more moisture.

Nivea is a brand which is very close to my heart, in the sense that I have grown up seeing the round blue tin dabba lying on my mom’s dressing table :). Also, it was the cream that my mother used for me and my brother :). So down the ages the brand has launched a number of new products in the Indian Market, and I am all set to review one of those.
I bought this body lotion about a month back and have been using this every day before going to sleep. Its highly moisturizing for my combination skin and immediately lends a smooth and quenched look to the skin. The moisturizing effect lasts long enough and It does not leave any oily film or make the skin sticky. It smells typically of the old nivea cream, very mild and feminine, I love this smell. The consistency is thick and runny and it spreads easily all over. The concern is, I think it may be suitable for excessively dry skinned ladies inspite of the claim of being suited for “very dry” skin.
Here is the what the back of the bottle says:
Price: Rs.198 for 250 ml
Summary: Not a must buy, but a good budget buy :). Moisturizes and smoothens skin which lasts for 12 hours. Also might not be moisturizing enough for very dry skin . Contains Paraben and Silicone. Also, did not cause any adverse reactions on skin.
Product Score: 3.5/5
