Review : Gwendolyn Body Lotion

Hello, all you pretty girls (and guys). Today, I'm going to review a body lotion that I've been using a for around 3 months, give or take. A little bit of background on the product brand, Gwendolyn. It's a local brand here in Indonesia that produces body lotions, hand sanitizers and lip balms. You can check out their product line up just by clicking right here

Isn't it cute how the builidings are shaped like their body lotion bottles?

Gwendolyn Body Lotion 
One of the characters from my favorite Rachel Raspberry

Gwendolyn Body Lotion is specifically formulated for tropical weather as it moisturizes without leaving sticky or oily feeling on your skin. Key ingredient used in the lotion is ‘jojoba oil’, which provides all-day moisturization, increasing skin’s softness and preventing the skin from cracking. Gwendolyn body lotion does not only moisturize but it also comes in a variety of lovely and long-lasting fragrances that will leave you day-dreaming and feeling delighted all day.

How I Use It
I squeeze about a fingertip length amount of product onto my hand and smooth it over my arm. 

What I Like About It
  • The price is super affordable. The smallest size (95 ml) is priced at Rp 25,000!
  • Their product packaging are super duper cute and adorable! Each scent has a different girl character representing that certain fragrance. 
  • The bottle has a push on cap so I don't have to twist it to dispense the product. I tend to hate those twist cap packaging because I often slipped, dropped the cap and lost it because it slides under a table/desk/sofa/etc. T^T
  • The size makes it perfect to carry in my makeup bag
  • The scent is therapeutic, especially when I'm under a stressful condition. My favorite is Rachel Raspberry, which has a berry, bubble gum scent that's both sweet and energetic.
  • It doesn't feel sticky or greasy after applying it
  • My skin feels moisturized for a good 2 hours (if I'm in an air-conditioned room) and around 6 hours ( if I'm outside in a hot condition). Plus, my skin feels so smooth after using this!
What I Hate About It
  • The counter is only located at Kelapa Gading Mall and Cibubur Junction (according to their website
  • Maybe because I have super dry skin, this lotion isn't as moisturizing as Vivelle body lotion. However, I still like to use this.

I would recommend this to :
  • Someone who likes scented body lotions
  • Someone who's on the go and likes to reapply body lotion, but want a compact size to fit in their bag
