    Hey Akshata, I loved your choice and you are correct, today we are spoilt with choices. I have used parachute advansed deep nourish body lotion as I have dry skin. But it’s a winter wear. For summer, I use its other product that’s specific for summer skin care; it’s called Parachute Summer Fresh Body lotion. It has coconut milk which is good but mild enough for summer care, mint extracts to keep the skin cool and double sunscreen to protect the skin from harmful UV rays. I love this product. I would recommend you also use it and give your review.

    Hey, I loved this collection and have tried most of them. I was a bit disappointed with Vaseline coco butter but one thing really attracted me. I would try TBS Shea Whip body lotion. Thanks great post!

    Great collection..I’ve used a few of them and loved them too. But my recent favorite is Oriflame Happy Skin Hydrating Body Lotion. Its runny and a very little is required every single time compared to the most of the lotions available in the market, which are extremely thick. Its very light in texture and gets absorbed by skin easily. And best thing it does not bother sensitive noses as it has no particular smell :)
