Passion Indulge Sea Breeze body lotion review

Hello!
I'm currently obsessed with body lotions and  am purchasing anything I see that looks good :D
My best friend's birthday is coming up and I decided to give her a gift basket so I went shopping to buy stuff to put in it. The initial plan was to get her Vaseline's Cocoa Glow but the SA told me that Passion Indulge's lotions are really good, and the packaging was cute enough to convince me to :D
I saw 3 variants at the store - Strawberry, Papaya and Sea Breeze. I found the last one to be most interesting as I've never had a lotion like that before so picked it up for myself. There are about 9 varieties though. They also have shower gels, bath oils and other aromatherapy items. A little something about the lotions from their website: " Your skin is under constant assault. Weather, stress, environmental factors, diet and even lack of sleep can all leave your skin looking and feeling tired dry, dull or troubled. Adequate skin dehydration is the key to healthy, beautiful skin. All our lotions are carefully designed to protect your skin moisturize it and keep it hydrated. Treat yourself to radiant, healthy skin with our range aroma lotions that help you to enhance your skin's natural sheilding abilities. Our range of Aroma body lotions help you to feel pampered cared for all day long! Passion Indulge's winter care body lotion is a highly researched based formula with deep poring and long lasting combination of sweet almond oil, glycerin and moisturizers like shea butter, olive oil, and extract of fruits like strawberry and papaya, which will protect the skin from cold weather and chapped skin & enhances the smoothness of skin texture".



The product packing is lovely! So simple, yet attractive. The bottle is plastic and a brown paper clings on to it with Passion Indulge and other details of the product listed. A small piece of rope (or thread) is around the neck of the bottle, with the variant name printed on it. That is so cute! The lotion is even herbal. It claims: "Herbal Handmade | 100% Vegetarian". Yayyyy herbal products!

Price: Rs.120
Quantity: 100 ml. Bigger bottles also available but I chose the travel friendly one.



Now coming to the review. The Sea Breeze variant is a hydrating lotion. I have never seen or heard of this company before. The bottle is just 100ml (note: the company says it is 100 ml when packed). The lotion comes in a normal bottle, no pump or anything. But I found it really hard to get the lotion out of the bottle at first. I think it took almost a minute!



The consistency of the lotion is slightly on the thicker side. It reminds me of whipped cream. But it is not a disadvantage as I feel it moisturizes and hydrates the skin better this way. The lotion glides on at ease but it takes a while to get absorbed into the skin, more than 2 minutes. I think this is better used as a night cream. My skin does not feel greasy, though it looks like it is till the product totally seeps into my skin. The bottle is small enough to fit into a purse and is travel friendly.



The fragrance of this lotion is the biggest turn on for me. I LOVE the smell! I can't really describe what it smells like, but it does remind me of standing on the sea shore lost in my thoughts. It also reminds me of those nice hotels :D. I think I've started comparing lotions to hotels a bit too much these days lol. The fragrance stays on the skin for about 4-5 hours but the hydration remains. I have not used it on my face so cannot talk about breakouts. The lotion moisturizes well during the winters. I think it is worth the money.


Pros:
- Hydrates skin
- Smells amazing
- Travel friendly
- Herbal and safe

Cons:
Can't think of any!

Yay or nay to recommend?
Yay! Do check out the lotions range, they do exactly what they claim.
