So winters are here finally. Our struggle to deal with dry weather has just begun. So, I thought, it is best time to talk about a body lotion which is among one of my favorites.
Today, I have a review on The Body Shop’s Wild Argon Oil Body Lotion. TBS has been one of my favorite brands. Almost all the products that I have used from TBS are pretty awesome. Be it their lip butters or the body mists; nothings has disappointed me so far.
I tried my hands on their whipped lotion last winters and I have been enjoying it since then. Before I proceed with the review I would like to mention that it’s a review based on one year of experience with this lotion from TBS.
Let’s begin now. First, with the ingredients.

Price: INR 575/- (offers on TBS are not frequent. Most of the time you end up paying the exact MRP. Sad, I know.)
Ok, so let dive in detailed review.
The first thing that impressed me was the packaging, very handy. A lotion in a pump bottle is the most convenient thing. So 10 on 10 for the packaging. You can keep it beside your side table and pump out the product to slather ‘moisture’ at your convenience. Or may be on your vanity. Thought it is bulky bottle to carry around in your bag. Some time while traveling I skip on this one and instead take another tiny bottle of lotion with me. But, there is always a way out. Use an old bottle and transfer the product in to it to easily carry it with you while traveling.
Next obvious thing that I will notice is it’s fragrance, which is flowery in this case (very close to jasmine scent). But do not worry , it do not smell like jasmine completely.There is a slight hint to it. It kind of and have some hints of lemony smell as well. I personally do not want to smell like a jasmine flower, but this lotion has a scent which is mix of jasmine and lemon. That is why I do not complain about the smell of this lotion.
Making it simpler to understand, I would mark it 7 on a scale of 10, for it’s smell. Overall, I would say, it is not the best smelling lotions in the world but, definitely one of the best lotions.
Talking about the texture of the lotion, when I slathered this lotion on my body, I was impressed, totally. I love how moisturizing it is. It is exactly what I expect from a body lotion. I have super dry skin and I hate the feeling of being dry(every one does). And I would say most of the body lotions, not do not do their job. It is winters and I have dry skin already, so need something really moisturizing. And yes TBS wild argon whipped lotion did it’s job. So, for moisturizing, I will mark it 8 on 10. Well, nothing is perfect after all. Right?
Talking further, the lotion is thick when you first apply it, but is not sticky at all. Once you are done applying it on your body, you will be left with soft and amazing skin. It has glycerin, sesame seed oil, argan oil, sweet almond oil, shea butter,coco, which are all know for their moisturizing properties.It is any day better than the body lotions I have used so far and I can’t wait to try their other variants as well.
Will I recommend it to my friends/ family: Yes, I will. In fact I have already bought one for my Mummy.
Will I buy it again? Definitely, I will. No second thoughts to that. Though I may try other variants and explore.
Now, let me summarize the whole review for you (with marks on a scale of 10).
- It is moisturizing- 8/10
- It smells good, though not the best smelling lotion ever. 7/10
- People with very dry skin will definitely enjoy it. 8/10
- Handy bottle. 8/10
- Beautiful packaging, I like it how it looks on my vanity table. 9/10
