Bath and Body Works Lemongrass Cardamom Body Lotion

RRP: $13 for 6.5fl.oz.

--What does the promo say?--
"Just relax. Lemongrass essential oil enhances clarity. Cardamom essential oil helps soothe the mind. This ultra-creamy body lotion contains natural soybean oil to nourish and moisturize skin and glycerin to attract moisture to skin."

A translucent green pump-action bottle, evoking the colour of cardamom pods. The label is classy and understated, and is reminiscent of Crabtree and Evelyn packaging. A class act all the way.

Massage into arms, legs, stomach and chest area after bathing.

Although it is not really visible through the bottle, the lotion is a simple creamy white, and leaves no discernible residue on the skin when rubbed in.

While the cardamom is less detectable than the lemongrass, the two combine expertly to create a pleasant scent. It is a subtle and sophisticated scent that is perceivable but not overpowering.

Not too runny or sticky, though perhaps I would prefer it to be slightly more creamy and luxurious. However, it rubs in very easily and smoothens skin effectively.

--Effects on the skin--
Helps to maintain a good overall skin condition, balancing out any irritation or dryness.

--Value for money--
For a mere $13, you just can't miss out. Stock up whenever you're Stateside.
