I am a self confessed chocoholic! Truly a sucker for anything with chocolate or coffee in it 🙂 I have tried n number of body creams and lotions which promise a chocolate fragrance and are NOWHERE near it even ! waaa waa…sadness I tell you 🙁
Then I came across this new brand. Plum Goodness. I had a good experience with its green tea mask reviewed here. Also I read such raving reviews about it online everywhere…hat this is like luxurious chocolate…you feel intoxicated by the fragrance…I HAD to give this a try. Shall we see how it worked out?
What is it and who is it for?
A chocolaty smelling body lotion that is free from most chemicals and is suitable for everyone.
Rs 390 for 200 ml
Sensitive Skin Alert?
What does the Brand Claim about Plum Choco Latte Luxuriant Body Lotion
You will be pardoned for thinking this is the real thing. With its indulgent aroma and silky texture, we would do well to remind you that this stuff is only for your skin to drink, and therefore strictly inedible.
♥ Never-before silky texture. Soft, light Moisturization that your skin needs!
♥ Antioxidant cocoa butter for younger, brighter looking skin
♥ Haunting chocolate aroma that lingers
♥ Convenient pump pack that dispenses only what you need
Pity, it’s not edible.
The only way to enjoy the luxuriance of this lotion: get it all over you. For best results, turn up some soothing music on your headphones and close your eyes.
My Experience with Plum Choco Latte Luxuriant Body Lotion
This body lotion comes in a sturdy and functional packaging. The plastic looks a bit cheap, but it’s not like seriously bad. Keeping the looks aside, the packaging is very sturdy and not bulky, so it’s decent for travelling too. I like the handy pump, which dissipates just the right amount of lotion.
The lotion is very light and has a thick milkshake consistency. It gets instantly absorbed in the skin without any greasiness. So here comes my first observation. This lotion is not suitable for everyone. Only oily skinned beauties or people who like really light lotions will benefit from this. If you have normal to dry skin, this will be pretty average for you.
Next…the major point…the fragrance!! Arrrgh!! I am angry. I am Angry. I am Angry.
Why do people sing praises of a fragrance that is not even in the same room as chocolate? It’s like chocolate flavored complan peeking through the window. Honestly, utterly disappointed. Nothing remotely pleasing about the fragrance. I bought it…and after 3-4 uses it is lying on my shelf..Waiting for expiry.
Don’t get me wrong. The brand is great, ethical…and has some pretty decent products. This though, is NOT one of them.
Positives of Plum Choco Latte Luxuriant Body Lotion
- Cruelty free ethical brand
- Sturdy Packaging
Negatives of Plum Choco Latte Luxuriant Body Lotion
- Not very moisturizing
- Does not smell good
Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?
Nope. This one is not recommended. Try their green tea mask though, that’s pretty nice!
