So Classic Erotica sent me the matching body lotion scent to go with my snazzy new body mist because those folks are all a bunch of BAMFs. There’s a lot of the same stuff going on between these two products and that’s a good thing. They smell nearly identical and that’s important to me. I hate buying a product, falling in love with the scent, and buying another in the line up only to find out that it smells completely different. That’s so not the case with the body lotion; although, it might smell slightly more berry-like.
The body lotion is slightly longer lasting, too. I put it on one night and could smell it the next morning. It was a great product to smell as I slept but, even during my waking hours, I find myself always sniffing the lotion.
The packaging is almost the same for the lotion. Pink with a cap. The lotion bottle was locked when I first received it. This is a good feature but the height of the pump is slightly shorter than other pumps and I had a hell of a time turning it to get it unlocked. I definitely will be keeping it “open” from now on,
The lotion is thin enough to work well with a pump bottle but this also means it’s not thick enough to do heavy duty. It’s more cosmetic. It does make my hands feel softer and does last through at least one washing. It also doesn’t simply rub over/around the skin like some lotions. That bugs the crap out of me.
As the name suggest, this one contains little sparkles. They’re harder to notice in the dark but super easy to spot in bright light and outside. Because of this, I will mostly be saving this for a night-time product. I don’t usually wear a lot of glitter during the day. It’s not my thing. On the other hand, your arms and chest can bling out if you apply this there.
But while I like this lotion enough, I don’t love it and the price of nearly $10 for 6-ounces seems a bit outrageous. It’s not widely available yet, either. Perhaps if more retailers carry it — which I would recommend — the price might drop. It may be a slightly cheaper option if you’re a fan of Victoria’s Secret sweet lotions; however, Bodycology offers a pretty sweet smelling vanilla cupcake lotion for less than half the price at Target.
I better end this review, though. Juliettia is going to become HANGRY.
