In Detail ST. Ives Swiss Vanilla Advanced Body Moisturizer Review
The product comes in a huge bottle with pump dispenser. Pump dispensers are always welcomed because they are hygienic as well as very easy to use in the bathroom or outside. I specially love this variant because I am in love with vanilla. Let me tell you, I never used to be a great fan of vanilla fragrances before I met Astha. She has inspired me to fall in love with vanilla. Now for me vanilla has become one of those scents without which I cannot live. I was actually gifted this bottle by my cousin who lives in states. It is not very readily available in India. I really wish St Ives officially comes to India because they do have some really good products, specially their scrubs and body lotions.
This moisturizer itself has a very nice creamy consistency and feels pretty soft and silky on the skin. After application it absorbs in the skin quickly and does not feel greasy or oily. The vanilla scent or fragrance lasts on me for good 2 to 3 hours and I cannot rave enough about how much I like good smelling body lotions. This lotion is highly moisturizing and will be great for winter months. I did hear that they are going to discontinue this line and come up with something similar however, I am not really sure about that yet.
I usually like to apply it during the day after shower. It keeps my skin moisturized for the whole day. I have really dry skin on my body and this works very nicely in keeping it moisturized. I have been using this for the past few months and I still have around 1/4th bottle remaining so, this product does last for a pretty long time. It is a huge bottle anyways.
Overall I would say I have really enjoyed using this body lotion and anyone who needs good body moisturizer and likes vanilla fragrance must give this a try.
