The Body Shop Satsuma Energising Gel Lotion Review: Hey Guys, I hope everyone is having a good weekend. Today I am going to talk about The Body Shop Satsuma Body Lotion. Satsuma is Japanese Orange as far as I know. I love the smell of oranges and that is the reason I picked up this body lotion. Also the fact that the bottle says “Gel”-Lotion quite intrigued me. So let us get into more details about this product and learn about my experience with it.

In Detail The Body Shop Satsuma Energising Gel Lotion Review, Swatches and My Experience
The gel lotion comes in a transparent plastic bottle packaging with a pump dispenser. The pump dispenser has a lock which I can secure and prevent the product from spilling during travel. Like all TBS products, this one has all details about the product written on the labels. Overall I really think the new packaging of TBS products is thoughtful as well as more user friendly.
When I say satsuma, think of fresh and sweet smelling oranges. Well because that is exactly what the product smells like. It smells fresh, citrusy with strong notes of orange. The lotion isn’t exactly creamy. Its a hybrid between gel and cream like the name of the product suggests. Its not wobbly like a gel, neither super creamy like a lotion. Because its super light weight, it gets absorbed very easily into the skin.
How I Use it
I have been using this satsuma body lotion everyday morning after bathing. I take it on my palms and apply it to my body. Like I said above, it absorbs quickly into the skin. The lotion never feels oily or sticky at all. Its very easy to apply.
Although the lotion isn’t too thick, it provides my skin the perfect amount of hydration. I mean, my skin does not feel dry at all. Usually, I prefer such light weight moisturisers for summer months like right now. These do not make my skin feel oily or sweaty even if I am out in the sun for sometime. The part that I love the most about this lotion is its smell. To me, it smells refreshing and energising in the morning. The sweet citrusy orange scent this has is perfect for starting my day.
I have simple reasons to love this body lotion. My favourite is its amazing scent. Secondly the fact that this gel-lotion provides my skin the perfect amount of hydration during these hot months. Because of shea butter in it, my skin never feels dry. Orange fruit water makes the skin feel refreshed and toned. However, this product is not completely natural. It does contain some chemicals. Therefore, make sure to test it on a small part of your skin before applying it all over. Also, it you have very dry skin, I don’t think this lotion will be sufficiently hydrating for the entire day.
I do recommend oily skin as well as normal skin beauties to try this out. If you like fresh, sweet citrusy fragrances, you will love this body lotion. I specially have been loving this for the summer months. However this can be quite nice during spring season too. If you have tried this product before, please do not forget to leave your valuable comments and share your experience with all of us.
