The Body Shop Amazonian Wild Lily Body Lotion



I've really been enjoying trying out body lotions recently. Most specifically my Tuscan Rose Body Butter as I had not really used a butter before now and have really noticed the benefits of long lasting moisture. Quite a few of my body lotions are floral which I feel fits in lovely with spring time. That's why I decided to test this product out now and see how it will work for me in the upcoming months.

The Amazonian Wild Lily Body Lotion* comes in a wonderful pump container which I really enjoy. It is slightly harder to measure the amount of product I get this way, as the pump is quite stiff and generally shoots down giving me the amount of a full pump. However I think that it will make it easier  to make sure I use up all the product this way and the container can be reused.

I like the cleanness and the pattern of the label. What's great about The Body Shop is that they usually represent whatever is in the product on the packaging outside. Therefore it is very visual and you always know what you're getting. Obviously The Body Shop is against animal cruelty and like to source their ingredients through community fair trade as well. These are also values which add to the intrigue and reasons to buy this product specifically over all others.



As you can see, the lotion is quite thin and watery - much thinner than any other lotion I have come across. Because of this it soaks in really quickly and really well, but it's consequently very light on the moisture side. It definitely gives hydration but it's not anywhere near as rich as a body butter.

I think that this formulation will be great in the spring and summer as you're not battling with cold, harsh winds and therefore your skin doesn't need that heavy layer of moisture which protects you from a tough climate. It is light and has a strong floral (lily) scent which only draws me in. It feels like i've walked through a field of flowers once i've applied this.

It's certainly a different product in it's own right and I will use this during times when the other products I own are too much. It has its own place and own time - just like you would have different hair products for shine and for volume, this is for light summer moisture instead of heavy winter hydration. I would recommend that you go and check this out in store too see what you think. There are tonnes of floral and fruity scents on offer which means you are bound to find one you will like :)

  1. I haven't tried any Body shop products for years, I loved it back in the day but it got too expensive for little old me! I love light moisturisers so may be worth me heading into the BS and checking this bad boy out!

  5. I like this product. I use this product. Present my skin is very nice. So, it is a standard body lotion. it definitely is a
    treat and works out more expensive than your normal tub of body lotion.
