Just Go To Bath And Body Works For Lotion

If you're looking for a lotion that you can put on and smell pretty while wearing it, this isn't a horrible choice provided you like extremely floral scents. It moisturizes well enough, but doesn't last very long as far as giving a massage goes. You might as well be using a lotion from Bath and Body Works. On the plus side, it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy or gross after it sinks in.

What is it, and what does it do?

This is a massage lotion from Zoƫ. It's meant to provide nourishment to the skin while offering some aphrodisiacal scents and a wonderful massage. As far as massages go, it's no better or worse than using a body lotion to give a massage, and it does moisturize nicely.

Oh cool! What does the bottle look like?

The bottle holds 5.25 ounces of lotion and features a convenient pump top. I think the coolest thing about the pump top though is that it doesn't pop up when you unlock it so you can easily twist the pump back over and lock it up again for traveling. There's nothing overly risque about the bottle, although there's an illustration of the backside of a naked woman on the front. To be honest though, I could easily see it on the shelf at like, a Walgreens or something similar. It's all done pretty tastefully.

Ok, but what about the ingredients?

Those are also listed on the back of the bottle. They're listed as Oenothera Biennis (evening primrose) oil, Helianthus Annuus (sunflower) seed oil, Persea Gratissima (avocado) oil, Olea Europaea (olive) oil, Rosa Canina Fruit (rose hip) oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Quanternium-79 Hydrolized Silk, Vegetable Glycerin USP, Emulsifying wax USP, Citric Acid, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol.

Neat, what does it smell like?

It's hard for me to really pinpoint what I think this smells like. The closest I can come is "stereotypical potpourri." It's overwhelmingly floral, and pretty perfumey. On the plus side, the scent fades away after a few hours, but in the mean time if you don't like the scent you'll hate the way you smell. This particular scent is one that has the potential to trigger headaches in those with sensitivities to scents and fragrances.

Well then. How does it work for massages? How about as a moisturizer?

Well enough I suppose. It's not going to be any better for you than any other body lotion really. It lasts a few minutes, sinks into the skin nicely, and you end up with a lot of friction until you add more lotion. It does smooth around nicely, but it seems to take a lot to cover relatively small areas. We ended up using 6-8 pumps total to get two rubdowns for my small back, and I used about that many to cover my entire body with lotion to moisturize. It's nothing remarkable as a moisturizer either. It'll work well for anybody who wants a little bit of extra moisture, but it won't do any deep moisturizing really. On the plus side, the skin isn't left feeling greasy or lotiony for more than a few moments after rubbing it in.

I see. And the skin is left feeling soft and smooth and all of that?

Yep. I find that I want to wipe my hands off when I'm done applying it, but that the rest of my body doesn't feel that way. After a few minutes I can forget that I put anything on, and my skin does feel soft and smooth.

Got a picture?

I do indeed. Here's one that shows the lotion up close, and how it stays in place.]

Overall, I'm not really all that impressed with this stuff. I mean, there's nothing terribly wrong with it, but I just have such lackluster feelings about it. I like the scent well enough, but it isn't "me" enough to want to use it very often.

It's a decent lotion if you don't need deep moisturizing, and some people are going to like the scent. But a lot more people are going to hate the extremely floral scent and want longer massages than what this is going to give. If you're looking for a very floral scented lotion, this isn't bad, but for its intended use it's pretty meh.
