The Body Shop Satsuma Energising Gel Lotion Review
I prefer to use bath products from the same range as layering products like shower gel, lotion, and body mist helps the fragrance last longer. I was already using The Body Shop Satsuma Body Mist when I bought The Body Shop Satsuma Energising Gel Lotion. I found its citrusy fragrance very refreshing for summers which is why I decided to give it a try. It is a lightweight gel lotion and has a lighter consistency than TBS Body Yogurts. Read on to know my experience with this product!

My Experience with The Body Shop Satsuma Energising Gel Lotion: One of the body lotions that I am currently using, TBS Satsuma Energizing Gel Lotion comes in a transparent bottle with a pump dispenser. Since the pump dispenser has a lock, it can be easily carried in a bag. Satsuma gel lotion is orange in color and has a medium consistency which makes it easy to apply on the skin. This lotion has an amazing citrusy fragrance that reminds me of fresh oranges. In fact, its smell and consiistency make it look like orange . Its fresh scent which is perfect for summers and the fragrance is indeed very energising. The fragrance, however, doesn’t last very long and fades in some time. I use it after the shower and massage it for some time before it gets absorbed into the skin. While I love how it smells, it is not exactly my favorite product for several reasons. It doesn’t provide sufficient hydration and my skin doesn’t look moisturized even immediately after using it. When more product is used, the hydration doesn’t last long and the skin starts looking dry in some time. This lotion is definitely not meant for my type of skin and can only work on oily skin in summers.
What I Like About The Product:
- Good packaging.
- Amazing fragrance.
- Easily absorbed.
What I Don’t Like About The Product:
- It doesn’t hydrate well.
- The fragrance is not long-lasting.
Verdict: The Body Shop Satsuma Energising Gel Lotion has an amazing citrusy fragrance but it is not very hydrating. It can be an apt choice for oily skin but not meant for normal or dry skin. Will I repurchase it? No
