That claimes an awful lot so I was expecting an awful lot, But…I do not feel that it delivered much. That said, the bottle is VERY girlish, and pretty, and is probably why it sells so well. Kudos to whoever designed the bottle! :o)
1.) Yes, it was hydrating and very moisturizing. It went on well and was not oily, or sticky. *This is a good thing*
2.)It smelled just ‘alright’ I found it to smell like a sweet cocoa butter. It was a light tan color when applied.
3.) Bottle says that there is caffeine and green tea stimulators in it, so I was expecting a bit of a boost, given it was 6pm when I used it. But nope, didn’t feel any more energetic then I normally do.
4.)Bottle says it has a light bronzer in it.
It must be a VERY light bronzer because as you know, with most bronzer lotions, you need to wash your hands right away. My salon was out of wipes so I did not wash my hands right away, and an hour later I had no brown palms. My hands were very soft and moiturized though. There was only a slight after tan odor.
5.) Even after waiting a full 24 hours, which is generally suggested, I did not see a difference in my color what- so- ever. Which is the whole point of using a lotion.
****All in all, I would probably not purchase this lotion myself. If I need a good moisturizer, I would stick with my coconut oil, or straight up cocoa butter.
This product retails for $64 in salons or $26.45 online.
