I've been clearing my stash of body products recently in my Project Pan. I feel like they've been building up beyond control. But generally there's nothing more enjoyable than trying out a new body lotion, butter or souffle when I get out of the shower. The real test comes down to how long the hydration lasts, how quickly it absorbs and how pleasant the scent is.
In my Birchbox this month I was given a sample of the Moisturising Almond Body Milk shown above. Naturally this went straight to the test after showering that evening. The first thing I noticed was how runny the product is. They aren't lying when they say it's a milk!
The hydration is definitely short term. It lasts for around 24 hours and then you're going to want to top up. However, it did say on the product description card which came with the Birchbox that you're meant to use this on a daily basis. Personally I find that to be a huge faff so it's not really appealing to me - though the light hydration might be quite nice for those warmer months when you don't want to get greased up and sticky.
It absorbs very quickly which is a definite bonus. After applying it my legs looked a lot smoother and nicer. I think this might be due to the rosewater in the lotion which helps to soothe and calm the skin.
The smell is very spa-like. It's quite herbal and creamy and I really love it. It certainly lingers on the skin but it's not a heavy, overpowering fragrance - simply subtle and light.
Over all I think this will be a nice product to use in the summer. I can't say I've fallen in love with it and would re-purchase it but it's a nice easy product to use for those days when you're on the go.
