Parachute Body Lotion for the winters



Parachute Body Lotion for the winters
By Simantini,
Taking care of the face is a task tough enough, so when it comes to the body, I prefer something that is actually good in quality. So, in my search for that “good” body lotion, I purchased the Parachuted Advansed Body Lotion last month. I have used the ones from Ponds, Nivea and Vaseline, and was not really happy with any of them. So, let’s see if Parachute makes me happy or not?

Body – The shape of the container is attractive and funny too! I mean, isn’t it crazy that they actually came up with the shape of a woman’s desired body shape? Anyway, the shape makes it easy to hold the bottle at least.
Quality – Pretty good actually. It is not too thick, so you don’t get the sticky feeling. And yet it stays on the skin for quite a few hours. Being the lazy that I am, I can actually apply it at a gap of 12hours and roam about without worrying about the skin getting dry.
Another thing that I give a thumbs-up for is the smell.  The lotion smells sweet, but not in yucky-sweet way. It’s a light sweet smell, and stays on the skin for an hour or two after you have applied it. I haven’t tasted it yet, so can’t give you a report on that! :P
The pack says that this body lotion can be used by the whole family, so I suppose children can use it too.
This body lotion is particularly for the winters. However, you also get a body lotion from Parachute that is suitable for all seasons.
Price and Quantity – I got the 250ml bottle, and it cost me 99 INR. The bottle lasted me more than a month, so quite a good bargain I suppose.
Perks – With the lotion, I got a bottle of Parachute Hot Oil therapy free. You can see the offer being mentioned at the bottom of the bottle. The offer is valid for smaller versions of the body lotion as well. The oil is good, especially when you are the traditional nariyel-tel loyal like me!

Ups
1.       Good price.
2.       Not excessively sticky, or too watery. Good consistency.
3.       Nice packaging.
Downs
1.       It’s good, but nothing memorable about it. I think I would like a couple of flavors to it, like strawberry, apple and such winter fruits.
Recommendation – Give it a try. It’s a good one for the mild Kolkata winters. Even if you are not residing in my city, if the winters of yours don’t go below a nice 15 degree Celsius, you could use it without any trouble.
Re-purchase – Yes. The Ups are more than the Downs, so “January will see me getting another bottle of this. Now, I really hope that the hair oil offer will be on till then! J

    1. I was very impressed by the curvy bottle that they had used and also the ad was very sexy so I decided to give it a try. The lotion is thin and not greasy on the skin like some other lotions that I have tried before. The moisturizer works really well even in the winter and I had no issues of itchy or dry skin even when I went out in the cold. I can say that the moisturizer works really well on my skin and I would recommend it to others too!

    1. I am in love with the Parachute Advansed body lotion! I like how it doesn't feel greasy on my skin and the sweet smell is so nice and not overpowering like other lotions! The moisturizing effect works great for me and has kept my skin nice and soft even through the winter season.. I've been stocking up on it and have even given it to some of my friends as gifts.. they all liked it too!

    1. Yeah, I agree with you. Especially the natural ingredient like coconut milk present in it makes the skin nice and soft. Am just loving the Parachute advansed body lotion from the day I started using it. Thanks to Parachute...

  12. The most effective moisturisers are the ones which penetrate deep within the skin and nourish it from inside. The mark of a great moisturiser is that your skin gets better with continued usage. Natural Ingredients like Coconut Milk help with not just superior moisturizing but a long lasting one as well. Skincare experts report that the topical use of coconut milk actually improves skin conditions
    Products like Parachute Advansed Body Lotion with 100% Natural Moisturisers including the milk of Coconut Fruit will actually make your skin better with continued usage. So go ahead and pamper yourself to get better looking skin.

  13. Parachute Advansed Body Lotion seems to work wonders on my skin! I have been using it for a few months and my skin has gotten smoother and stays soft without drying under the harsh winter. I like it and would recommend it to others too. Its not even greasy and I feel good using natural ingredients on my skin!
