Malavara Lime Vetiver Body Lotion Review
Today I am going to review Malavara Lime Vetiver Body Lotion which came with a monthly Fab Bag. It came with a shower gel of the same kind. I have used this a lot and I quite like it. It gives out a very refreshing summery vibe which instantly lifts your mood.
I have recently reviewed the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner for you all here.
They claim it to be a deep nourishing moisturiser with sharp notes of citrus verve. The natural reviving qualities of Vetiver and lime helps in skin illumination.
Direction for Use
After showering or bathing with the Malavara Lime Vetiver Body wash, take a generous amount of the Lime Vetiver body lotion and apply it on to your skin for moisture and fragrance retention. It is for external use only. If irritation or discomfort occurs, it is preferable to visit a dermatologist or simply discontinue using this product.
Once opened, the lotion has to be used up within 6 months. It expires in 24 months from the date of packaging.
Price & Quantity
It costs INR 390 for 60ml.
Not mentioned. Patch test is preferable.
It comes in a transparent plastic cylindrical bottle with a silver screw on cap on top. The writings on the body is a little hard to read as it is in light lime green colour which comes out as blurry against the white colour of the lotion.
The cream is medium thick and it is quite smooth. It spreads very easily and takes a few moments to get absorbed fully into the skin. It is quite refreshing and makes the skin cool down. It provides medium moisturization and hydration. It has strong notes of lime in it which lasts for several hours.

My Experience with Malavara Lime Vetiver Body Lotion
Since the product doesn’t contain SPF, I could not wear it during the day whenever I was heading out of doors. Overall, I think it is a pretty good hydrating and moisturizing body lotion for the summer time. Skin becomes very dry after using the Lime Vetiver body wash so this body lotion comes to the rescue by cooling down and hydrating the skin. For me it provided sufficient moisturization and hydration needed for the summer time and I loved that strong lime fragrance.
Whether I would recommend this product again:
You can give this product a try if you are into lime fragrant body lotions. There are many better body lotions available from various brands in reasonable prices and amounts. I personally would not repurchase this product as it exorbitantly priced and there are much better products available in the market.
