Skin type: Normal to dry
Some time back, I came across the Strawberry Hand And Body Lotion from the house of Bryan And Candy New York. After using it daily for some time now, I wanted to share my thoughts with you all. So let’s start with the detailed review and see how did this one fare out for me. Keep on reading…
What The Brand Claims: Plunge into a fruity trip for your skin with the goodness of strawberries. Get a natural blush with breathtaking fragrance of berries. Its light and non greasy formula penetrates deep into your skin making it soft, supple & smooth. Shea Butter naturally moisturizes and effectively softens the skin.
With a strong antioxidant effect, it protects your skin from the damaging effects of free radicals. Our Hand & Body Lotion is enriched with Hyaluronic Acid which helps hydrate your skin for long hours and is known to prevent effects of aging. Free of Sulfates, Paraben, and other harmful ingredients. It is suitable for all skin types.
Packaging: The lotion comes in a glossy red-colored tube with strawberries drawn all over. It is quite sleek and does not feel bulky at all. As you unscrew the top silver cap, there is a foil covering that needs to be removed in order to use the product. All the important information such as date of manufacturing, MRP, ingredient list, shelf-life, directions to use and net product volume are clearly mentioned. Overall, the packaging is attractive, hygienic as well as travel-friendly!
My Experience With The Product: Bryan And Candy Strawberry Hand And Body Lotion is white in color and has a gel-creme texture. It is incredibly smooth to touch, feels really lightweight initially and glides on the skin effortlessly. However, as soon as you start massaging, it takes time to get absorbed and even then, it does not completely blend in. It leaves just a tad bit of greasy feeling behind that I do not like.
The lotion effectively hydrates the skin and makes it soft and smooth, but it does not provide deep moisturization. I feel this lotion would work best for those with normal to dry skin and would especially be great for the cooler months of the year.
Now coming to the fragrance, I was expecting a Strawberry scent, but unfortunately this one has an artificial fruity scent that does not really feel like Strawberries! The scent is prominent and would not be liked by everyone. It lingers on for quite some time and can be overpowering for sensitive noses. The product retails for Rs 400 for 125 ml and can be easily found online.

Concluding Thoughts: Bryan And Candy Strawberry Hand And Body Lotion has a gel-creme texture that beautifully glides on the skin and makes it soft, smooth and hydrated. This is a cruelty-free product and does not contain parabens and sulfates either, which is great!
Unfortunately, on the downside, the lotion does not completely blend into the skin and leaves a tad bit of greasy feeling behind. Next, it has an artificial fruity scent that is strong and would not be liked by everyone. Also, it does not provide deep moisturization, contains alcohol and is definitely overpriced.
Thus, I am not at all impressed and would neither recommend nor repurchase this. There are much better lotions available in the market today. Disappointed!
Till next time,
