Body lotion in Monsoon.. seriously? Yes, you need it: Parachute Advansed Summer Fresh Body Lotion

Who needs body lotions in summers and monsoons? I do. My facial skin may be oily, but my body skin is super dry. And even when it is not, I just enjoy the feel of body lotions which hydrates my skin. it's soothing!
When Parachute launched it's body lotions, I was pretty skeptic at first. Well, I like their coconut oils, but body lotions? Hmmm.. But I had shown you that I had been sent in a bottle. Perhaps if it wasn't sent, I might have not given it a thought. But it's good that I did. When I opened the beautiful package, the minty green bottle was there.
( Out friend Simi had reviewed the other variant here)

My sister and I quickly popped in a few Fox mints which are yummy btw. Being not the biggest fan of coconuts, the idea of coconut milk made me scared of it. I would have hated to smell of coconuts!
But on opening the light fresh fragrance felt good. The scent lies somewhere between fruity and floral. It is quite discernible, but not overwhelming enough to titillate your olfactories and give you an allergy.

The best moment was the application. It's so light and hydrating. Added bonus, it is soothing. I have been using this lotion for the past few weeks. I love the way it gets completely absorbed into my skin making it soft.
Today, after shaving my legs, I rubbed this in and it felt so good. The redness that I usually get did not show up this time and I loved the light cooling and soothing sensation.


What I did not like?
Is that possible? Yes. Still it is possible. It claims to posses sunscreen properties. But there is no mention of any kind of SPF without which, any dermatologist and even your good sense would say, the claim cannot be grounded on real reasons.
I am not alright with this. I could have been all praises had there been so such claims.

Overall priced 125 INR for a 250 ml bottle I think I can get more than what I bargain for.

Do I recommend? yes! Strongly.
Shall I repurchase? Yes. I am surely getting a second helping.. ooops.. second bottle of this one.

What about you? try or pass?

product sent by the brand. But my opinion is honest as ever.


  1. for me drugstore sunscreen lotions and body lotions are a must for year round for a nice moisturizing feeling!

  2. Sounds good! I use Body Shop's satsuma lotion, it's yummy! But might try this for a change. :D

  3. Hi Nivedita, I had read your earlier preview about the product as well. This time great review. I have similar skin like you do. My face is very oily while my body is very dry...it needs constant re-hydration. Parachute advansed body lotion summer fresh was my ultimate choice...so light and smooth.
