I love to slather my body with a nourishing body lotion after a nice bath but as summers hit the weather it almost becomes impossible to brush off that greasy feeling after applying a lotion. I was in a constant search of a lightweight body lotion which absorbs quickly into the skin and my search ended when I found this VLCC Almond Honey Body Lotion. So let’s get started with the VLCC Almond Honey Skin Brightening Body Lotion Review.
Product Name: VLCC Almond Honey Deep Nourishing and Skin Brightening Body Lotion
Price & Quantity: It retails for INR 275 for 350 ml of the product.
Availability: It is available online and offline easily. Buy here to get one free! (BOGO offer)
Shelf Life: 36 months from manufacturing date.
Ingredients: In the image below!
Packaging & Appearance: VLCC Almond Honey Body Lotion Review is a very big and bulky cylindrical bottle with a pump on top. The pump isn’t too sturdy or too flimsy. On the front it has the name of the product written and at the back it has all the other details. The packaging isn’t travel friendly as the bottle is too big and the pump will spill the lotion.
Smell: I really love the fragrance of this lotion. It’s very refreshing and kind of citrusy and sweet. I really enjoy putting it on my body after a nice bath.
Swatch: In the image below. You can see my skin after it is absorbed and there is no greasiness at all.
Variants: There are no variants available in this product but VLCC does have some other body lotions.
Claims: This light, non-greasy lotion is enriched with pure almond oil and honey. It nourishes skin to help retain elasticity. It leaves skin glowing and youthful.
My Experience: I ran out of my body lotion and was looking for one when I came across this VLCC Body Lotion. It was on a buy one get one offer and not just that, it had 30% discount on it as well and hence it costed me for INR 193. Who will ever leave such an amazing deal for two 350 ml body lotions each? I literally felt like such a smart shopper after buying this lol.
Its pump packaging was one thing that attracted me as it helps top apply the lotion quickly. The pump of the packaging is good but sometimes the product goes here and there. The fragrance is another thing that I really love as it’s so refreshing.
It is a very lightweight body lotion but hydrates the skin well. It is amazing for summers but wouldn’t work in winters. As the skin starts getting dry after 9-10 hours. I have a normal skin but still is feels dry sometimes. So for people with dry skin, it isn’t a good lotion to go for. Other than that I really like its texture, it’s hydrating and non-greasy and it’s perfect for summers!
Texture: The texture of the lotion is very lightweight and non-greasy. It just absorbs in the skin very quickly.
Staying Power: The staying power of the VLCC Almond Honey Skin Brightening Body lotion is maximum 9-10 hours after which your skin will start to become a bit dry and if you have a dry skin it might lose its moisture earlier.

Jhalli Diva Verdict: 3.5/5
Do I Recommend?
Yes, I do recommend it to anyone who has normal to oily skin type. It will work amazingly well for them in summers as its lightweight texture will make you go wow. But if you have dry skin then it won’t work for you.
Will I Repurchase?
Yes, I might repurchase it if I find the BOGO offer again. For this summer I’m sorted as it’s going to last me a long time. So I might purchase it in next summers as it won’t nourish my skin much in winters.
Overall Summary: If you are looking for a lightweight and non-greasy body lotion for summers then you ought to buy this one. It smells amazing, absorbs easily into your skin and hydrates your skin very nicely. The only downside of VLCC Almond Honey Body Lotion is that it isn’t suitable for dry skin people or for using in winters. If you’re okay with it then go ahead and purchase it!
