Let’s get some things straight. I am a super sloth when it comes to applying body lotion. Most of those I have tried left me slippery, and leaving greasy prints everywhere I go. My requirement of a good body lotion is something light weight, absorbs quickly, moisturising and subtle in scent. Some lotions give me a headache – the scent is too strong for my taste. If your requirements match mine, then take a look at Nature’s Lab Body Whip.
The Body Whip comes in a plastic jar that is hard to break. I’ve dropped this so many times, I’m about to declare myself a clutz. Thank goodness for the new packaging. When I first bought the Body Whip a couple of years back, it was in a heavy glass jar that looked like a cookie jar. If I dropped that, RIP Body Whip, for sure. There are also 2 versions, Refreshing Body Whip (contains grapeseed extracts) and Soothing Body Whip (contains green tea extracts) which is what I bought. The Soothing version, I find, has a lighter scent.
Soothing Body Whip contains shea butter, cocoa butter, green tea and chamomile extracts. I was told that this lotion, other than moisturizing the body, gives a scent of relaxation, and it is good to unwind from a hard day. Well, this probably isn’t written in black and white, just a sales pitch, but I do like the scent. It is a subtle soothing scent for the soul. I also love the texture of the lotion. It is light like runny whipped cream. It goes onto skin like melted butter, like ice on a hot pan. It absorbs into skin almost immediately, leaving skin smooth and supple. There is no greasy residue at all and I even apply it to the soles of my feet. When I walk on my marble floor bare foot, I do not leave any unwanted footprints. I washed my hands 3 minutes after I applied the Body Whip all over my body, and NO greasy residue yet again. Awesome! I hope the photo below shows the texture of the Body Whip. Otherwise, it is rendered useless and a waste of blog space. LOL!
For those of you who are a bit particular about what you put on your skin, here is the list of ingredients. Yes, I see alcohol. Nature’s Lab Body Whip’s retail price is RM98 which is steep. I had a RM30 voucher at that time, so I got it for RM68 instead. It is definitely a splurge in exchange for a texture I love. My skin is moisturised and I don’t feel sticky under my sheets. Compared to L’occitane, this is still a bargain.
To summarize, good stuff only if you’re in splurge mode. I probably will not repurchase this all the time … only when I feel like indulging myself. This bestseller can be found at TNS Skin L@b stores nationwide or you can check out their online store which offers free shipping within Malaysia. They also ship worldwide at a fixed rate.
Do you pamper yourself once in a while? What is your most indulgent splurge for your body?
