Victoria’s Secret Vanilla Lace Fragrance Lotion Review

 

Hi Fragrance Lovers, Today I’m reviewing another fragrance from Victoria’s Secret – Vanilla Lace  Fragrance Lotion. My hubby gifted me three scents from this range. I haven’t used the other two yet. But yes, I will review the other two soon. My love for this brand is endless and VS has never disappointed me. Let’s see how was my experience with this one.

Price- Rs. 1630 for 236 ml/8 fl oz

Product Description-

  • A blend of juicy cassis with the warmth of creamy musk
  • Fast-absorbing, non-greasy
  • 24 hours of rich hydration for nourishing skin

The copper-gold packaging is very appealing. It doesn’t come in travel size. The white lotion’s consistency is milky. So, it doesn’t require excess rubbing or tugging. You’ll feel scrumptious with a burst of  vanilla  and smooth yummy cream. Those with sensitive skin can go for this body lotion as it won’t irritate or cause any reaction. The lotion can be used in any season and the quantity  lasts long.

My experience with the product-

Packaging- All the lotions in this range  arrive in vivid packaging. This one comes in gorgeous copper and gold colored tube. The  golden cap has Vctoria’s Secret logo on the top. The press open feature is something that I like because it   brings out the right amount of product from the tube. The tube is a bit heavy to carry for travelling. Nevertheless, it looks sophisticated and it’s another  beauty in my collection.

 

Fragrance –As the name suggests, the fragrance is delicious and is pure vanilla. The label describes it as ‘Fragrance Lotion’, which tricks us to believe that it will be quite long-lasting.However,the scent starts out a bit sharper, but turns into a mild one within a few minutes of application, and finally vanishes within 3-4 hours , which is the biggest disappointment with this lotion.I just wish it lasted more.

 

Texture- I assumed that the lotion would be thick, but it’s actually a bit runny in texture.. It doesn’t require constant rubbing, unlike most of the lotion and creams, and gets instantly absorbed by the skin. Although it hydrates my skin a bit, I can’t that say it makes it very soft or smooth.The texture is suitable for every season, especially  summer season because it feels as if nothing is applied on the skin. It can be used by both oily skin and dry skin.

Overall, I’m not impressed with this product. The watery texture is very disappointing.i as expecting much better quality, after all its VS!

Pros-

  • Sturdy, spill proof and hygienic packaging
  • Non-sticky formula
  • Pleasant fragrance
  • Gets absorbed instantly
  • Leak proof packaging
  • Light-weight formula
  • Doesn’t feel sticky or greasy
  • Leaves the skin moisturized for about 5-6 hours

   

    Cons-

  • Doesn’t soften the skin
  • It doesn’t live up to its claim of 24 hour moisture
  • The fragrance doesn’t last very long
  • Not great for very dry skin
  • Expensive

I would recommend this fragrance to vanilla lovers, if you don’t mind the poor lasting ability.But I won’t repurchase this product . Sorry VS !!! You failed this one for me 😦
