Texture & Scent:
This lotion is quite runny, so it spreads unto your skin quite well! This gives a cooling sensation once applied (hint: alcohol), and the lotion sinks in really quickly which is nice. This smells like the other lotions from this range... powdery and soft - it's quite comforting actually! haha!! :D
I bought the smallest bottle which is the 75ml one with a flip top cap! There's another bigger one which contains 400ml and it comes with a pump.
The dispensing hole:
This lotion sinks in quickly, but i find that i have to reapply after a few hours!
Price & Availability:
This lotion is priced at RM6.70 which i think is pretty affordable! The 400ml pump version is priced at RM23.60. This lotion should be available at most Guardian / Watsons outlets and your local supermarket! :)
Since this absorbs quickly, it's perfect to use in the mornings when you're in a hurry! :D
I was in the mood to try something new when i came across this product in Watsons!! The "Intensive" word probably sold me instantly (until i forgot to check the ingredient list!!) because my legs were all dry and itchy at that time (Rosken running low... lol!! :P).
The moment i put this lotion on, i realised i made a mistake in buying this product! This gives a cooling sensation on the skin which usually means it contains alcohol! Probably because of that, this lotion sinks in really quickly, making this ideal to use when you're in a hurry and but need some body lotion before putting on your clothes! lol!! :D
Despite it being labeled "Intensive" and for dry to very dry skin, i find that this didn't help my scaly dry legs much. Sure, it did curb the itchiness, but my legs were still dry and scaly after i finished the bottle! On other parts of my body (like my arms) which are not dry, this performs nicely to soften skin and keep it moisturized!
So to summarize, while i love how affordable this lotion is, i won't be repurchasing because 1. it contains alcohol (which is a no-no for my skin) and 2. i wished it was more moisturizing! I much prefer the Extra Whitening one!
