1. AMWAY G&H body lotion:
MRP 405 INR, NET QTY. 250 ML
Suspected Harmful chemicals- Although all the ingredients used in this lotion are said to be safe. But some of them are banned in Europe for their carcinogenic (e.g potential to cause breast cancer) and other toxic properties. Those harmful ingredients which are found even in this lotion are:- TEA ( triethanolamine), DEA, diazolidinyl urea , Parabens
Consistency- A little runny like shampoo. Skin stays matte.( Neither feels rough nor smooth- at least to me).
Will I recommend?
1)6-7 hours on normal to dry skin. (No anti aging properties though)
2) Works on normal to dry skin. For Very dry skin I think better alternatives are available.
Although I love Amway's nutrilite and artistry range. I did not find this lotion very appealing. So NO.
I daresay it is just an average lotion.
MRP 190INR, NET QTY. 300 ML
Suspected harmful ingredients:(Less harmful but harmful if used for long time)- White soft paraffin , Dimethicone, MAGNESIUM ALUMINIUM SILICATE, DMDM Hydantoin, EDTA
It also contains glycerine which Provides a layer of oil on the surface of the skin to prevent water evaporating from the skin surface.
( Now if my skin doesn’t breathe or evaporate water how would it throw out toxins from my body system?Just Curious. Do you have answer?)
Will I recommend? :-
3. HIMALAYA INTENSIVE MOISTURIZING BODY LOTION-
MRP: 140 NET QTY. 200 ML
2) Harmful depending upon concentration in the product:- acrylates copolymer (LINKED to cancer –breast cancer), EDTA, fragrances, phenoxythanol (reproductive toxin).
Consistency is thick .But less sticky than Vaseline’s cocoa body lotion.Which makes it a better option for summer season than Vaseline’s.
2) Skin stays soft.(No anti aging properties:( )
Will I recommend?
MRP: 87 NET QTY. 100 ML
Suspected Harmful ingredients:- CONTAINS EDTA, PARABENS , ACRYLATES, Mineral oil ( premature aging) ,FRAGRANCE(When they don’t mention particularly which fragrance like lavender, put the product down because it could also mean that product has an allergy causing ingredient to give it a nice smell.)
Consistecy: Runny, Medium light texture.
NOTE: I have mentioned suspected chemicals because all these chemicals if harmful or not is still debatable. These chemicals are approved by U.S FDA and claimed to be safe, and parabens are even used as preservative in some medicines as well, like absolute 3G( multivitamin tablets) . However, some other researches disagree with these chemicals being safe. As I mentioned, Some of these chemicals are banned in Europe for their suspected harmful effects.
5. AVON skin so soft whitening hand & body lotion -
It works well on normal to dry skin.
And the authenticity of her review was proven by her genuinely amazingly soft, supple and glowing skin!
Note of Caution:-(These are strictly body lotions. Applying it on face may result into acne, black heads and white heads when used excessively. Almost all body lotions contain one or the other ingredient that clog your pores so that to avoid evaporation of water from your skin. Also, KEEP BODY LOTIONS OUT OF CONTACT WITH EYES OR ANY SENSITIVE AREA AND don’t use one body lotion for long time. As they usually contain chemicals, long time use can lead to bad health effects.)
REMEMBER THERE ARE VERY FEW BODY LOTIONS FOR SENSITIVE OR SUPER SENSITIVE SKIN. CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR/DERMATOLOGIST BEFORE BUYING A BODY LOTION IF YOU HAVE SUCH SKIN.
