I tried out my sample of Bodycology Brown Sugar Vanilla Hand & Body Lotion today, and I enjoyed using it. I am not sure what it is about food scents, but I tend to always like them, especially when it comes to dessert-type fragrances. This one did not disappoint. It smelled pretty good, a very warm vanilla scent.
Concentrating on texture, I found the lotion to be light, yet very creamy. I found it to be very moisturizing and non-greasy. It was easy to spread.
The lotion has some nice therapeutic ingredients in it like aloe vera to hydrate, cocoa and shea butter to moisturize, and Vitamins E & C to nourish.
The lotion is not oil-free, nor is it fragrance-free which is why I rated that section a 0. It contains soybean oil.
I found a confusing sentence on the back of the sample. It said: This finished product is not tested on animals. This troubled me because it made me think that perhaps this formulation was not tested on animals, but maybe during preliminary processes of making the product maybe animal testing was used. Unfortunately, I saw this after I had pretty much used the whole sample up. I am not saying that this is what Bodycology means by that statement; all I am saying is, I found that statement confusing.
