Today I will be reviewing Parachute Advansed Deep Nourish Extra Dry Skin Body Lotion which is for extra dry skin. As you all must be aware by now that I have dry skin so anything that says extra dry skin catches my attention immediately as I feel it will keep my skin super moisturized and soft for long than the products meant for normal skin or dry skin.
Shelf Life: 2 years
Directions for use:
For best results, apply daily all over your body. Suitable for use by entire family.
This body lotion comes in a same curve shaped bottle as all other lotions from Parachute with a flip top cap. The fragrance is kind of strong, don’t smell exactly like coconut milk but some floral smell which is not irritating but some may find it gross or too strong, this is just what I feel.
This lotion is meant for extra dry skin which is why I was interested in trying it as my skin is very dry and in winters, dryness takes more of its toll on my already dry skin. So to start with its consistency, its flowy but the texture is thick and takes some time in getting absorbed but I don’t mind spending extra minute in rubbing it to make it fully absorbed. It moisturizes pretty good and leaves a nice sheen behind which can’t be said greasy but if you have oily skin, you may find it a bit greasy as it’s meant for very dry skin. It keeps skin moisturized for 4-5 hours and you have to reapply it and it also easily gets rubbed away by long sleeves sweater so reapplication is a must with this lotion. It’s not that type of lotion which penetrates deeper and leaves a soft feeling on top. No, it’s not that! It will get rubbed by your clothes. I generally apply body lotions when I feel my skin is dry and needs some moisture, it can be even 3-4 times a day that’s why I keep on using different lotions. I have 10-12 body lotions at present but the one I’m actually loving is Nature’s Essence body lotion which is amazing in lightening skin tone and I will be reviewing it soon, I know you all also want to know the secret weapon to lighter skin. :-P
