In Detail The Body Shop English Dawn Gardenia Body Lotion Review, Swatches and My Experience
English Dawn Gardenia Body Lotion comes in a opaque white plastic bottle and a black press open cap. It is a skin-softening lotion infused with natural extracts of white gardenia flowers. The lotion is pure white in color and has a fresh, floral and delicate fragrance that is infused with the glorious fragrance of white gardenia.
The lotion lends a sweet scent to the whole body which lasts for about 2-3 hours. There are more products also in the this English Dawn Gardenia Body lotion range. For example the body mist and shower gel which can be used for layering and longer lasting fragrance. Its a really pretty, light scent that isn’t too overpowering. This collection smells absolutely divine.
The consistency of the lotion is medium, neither thick nor runny. It easily gets absorbed into the skin and is not sticky or greasy at all. The lotion leaves a soft feel to the skin, and also enhances the quality of the skin by making it soft and smooth with regular use. It is great for all skin types.
However dry skin beauties might not find it aptly moisturising in winter months. I am happy with the results till now but as winter intensifies I will have to switch to something more moisturising.
Overall, it’s a lovely smelling moisturiser that your skin will quickly absorb and completely love. It made my skin smooth and nice. You can try it if you are looking for something light and are a fan of floral smelling products like me.
