Botanicals Lemongrass & Mandarin Body Lotion

July 24, 2015

Botanicals, the multi-award-winning natural organic skincare brand from Leicestershire, which uses the pure power of plants to bring beauty, health and wellbeing to skin and which is certified organic by The Soil Association.

Yet again Botanicals have been shortlisted in the FreeFrom Skincare awards! Four of their amazing products were up for awards in different categories with 2 winning silver and bronze awards! AND they were up for the coveted Best FreeFrom Brand award again, defending their title!

I was lucky enough to try the Revitalising Body Lotion: Lemongrass & Mandarin which retails at £21.95 for a 200ml bottle with a handy pump dispenser. 

Skin softening shea and cocoa butters, are blended with soothing aloe-vera and revitalising lemongrass, in this pure and natural body treatment.

I really enjoyed using this. It has a delicious scent that lives up to the 'revitalising' promise  yet is far from over powering. The bottle is plastic but it is tinted an amber brown colour so at a glance it looks like glass which maintains the aesthetic appeal. I like the pump applicator as it makes application simple, easy and clean.

I have had this for a few weeks now and it has been a joy to use. Not only that but I have noticed that the level of product has barely changes so although £21.95 is a reasonably large initial outlay you do get good value for money, especially when you consider the standard of ingredients.

Full list of ingredients:
Aqua, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil* butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter*, theobroma cacao seed butter*, glyceryl stearate, cetearyl alcohol, glycerine***, olea europaea fruit oil*, linum usitatissimum seed oil*, sucrose stearate, sodium stearoyl glutamate, aloe barbadensis leaf juice powder*, camellia sinensis leaf extract*, coco-glucoside, coconut alcohol, tocopherol, xanthan gum, benzyl alcohol, lactic acid, dehydroacetic acid, parfum* citrus nobilis (mandarin orange) peel oil*, cymbopogon flexuosus (lemongrass) oil*, citral**, geraniol**, linalool**, limonene**.
