Parachute Advansed Body Lotion Dry Skin ~ Review & Swatch

What Parachute says about 'Intense Care Body Lotion':  

Pamper yourself for the first time ever with the nourishment of coconut milk which moisturizes and hydrates the skin like no other ingredient! As the coconut- based moisturizers are similar to the skin’s natural oils, they penetrate the skin deep within and lock in moisture, doubling moisture levels in just 2 hours. The result is soft, delightful skin you’ve always dreamt of!

Parachute Advansed Body Lotion Variant Details
  • Dry Skin, Intense Care: for dry skin that needs intense moisturization
  • All Season, Gentle Care: for skin that requires light moisturization
Price:  49 INR for 100 ml

Look & Feel:

  • Texture:  A light weight hydrating moisturiser with the required consistency of a body lotion. Higher water content is clearly noticeable in the swatch.
  • Package: Comes in a curvaceous plastic bottle with a flip cap.  It's convenient enough to open without spilling and stylish enough to carry in a bag :)
  • Fragrance:  When smelled through the bottle the fragrance of freshly crushed flowers is observed. No don't get excited because it smells mostly like coconut oil on the body. It's not bad but after sensing the floral fragrance the coconut fragrance is not so appealing to me.

The Effects

L2R -- Before and After Effects

  • Moisturizing? Though it's formulated for dry skin it caters more to the needs of a normal skin.  Softens the dryness caused due to seasonal changes but will not provide intensive care and healing for dry skin.
  • Absorption? Spreads easily and gets absorbed without much effort.  Aquatic cooling is felt on application which is appealing in summers :)
  • Sweaty? No not all :) 
  • Greasiness? Noticed only when more than required amount is applied. However it gets absorbed in about 15 minutes.

Slight Oiliness When Applied More

Buy This:
  • For light moisturization in summers.
  • For normal to oily skin
  • For the affordable pricing
Don't Buy:
  • If you have extremely dry skin
  • If you don't like the smell of coconut oil on body.
Final Note:  Ignoring the 'Dry Skin' tag and the coconut smell it indeed is a very good body lotion and will not disappoint in fulfilling the needs of a normal skin
