Biotherm Lait Corporel Review

Pros:  

Smells fresh of citrus.

Cons:  

Needs to re-applied several times for a good hydrating effect and the smell doesn’t last more than 30 minutes.

More: 

This body milk is the dinosaur of body lotions, it has been around since 1971 (did it go to Woodstock I wonder).

This body milk comes in a big package and you need it. First of all it is not a lotion but a body milk, so the consistency is pretty light. It does hydrate your skin leaving it very smooth, but you need a big amount per use for dry skin. It has a very fresh smell of citrus but unfortunately the smell does not last long.

So basically this is an ok body milk, which manages to hydrate your skin, has a nice silky texture, but is nothing extraordinary and since the smell doesn’t last for long, my guess is that you can find a cheaper version at the pharmacy. If I buy expensive body lotions it’s because they smell extraordinary or do miracles for my skin, this one does neither, even though it leaves your skin silky and smooth (after using a handful).

The Body Shop: Spa Wisdom Japan, Yuzu & Rice Body Milk

 

Pros:

Against animal testing*! Easy to apply with the spray function. Use for summer.

Cons:

A bit thin, doesn’t feel like it goes that much “in depth”.

More:

This body milk smells fresh and is easy to apply, first of all because the bottle has a spray function, second, because it’s a very light cream. I would use this product in the summer when my body needs a light relieving moisturiser that smells fresh and summerly. The smell is a bit too much for me for every-day use.

Another plus is that you support community trade with this product.

*I have to mention that The Body Shop was criticised for selling their products in China, where the government (for reasons I don’t see) requires animal testing. When it came to the media’s attention, Body Shop quickly removed their products from the Chinese shelves (More here and here).
