Malavara Shower Gel and Body Lotion Review – Hello and I am back with another post. This time its Malavara Shower Gel and Body Lotion Review. A nice, refreshing shower gel and a calming body lotion is must for summer. They make you feel super fresh and energetic. I had received this Malavara Shower Gel and Body Lotion in one of my fab bags (60 ml sample size bottle of each) and their soothing green colored packaging instantly caught my eyes. The packaging itself gives a sense of refreshment. Malavara bath and body range comes in four luxurious contemporary fragrances – Pepper saffron, Sandalwood rose, tea jasmine and Lime vetiver. The duo which I am going to review today is from Lime Vetiver range.

My experience with Malavara Shower Gel and Body Lotion
Malavara Shower Gel comes in a clear plastic bottle with a screw open cap. No stopper is attached on the mouth, hence one needs to be watchful while taking out the product. The transparent bottle lets you check the quantity left. Malavara Body Lotion opaque white bottle with a screw open cap. The 60 ml bottles are pretty sturdy and extremely convenient to carry during travelling.
Malavara Shower Gel and Body Lotion, both have refreshing lime fragrance. The fragrance is just perfect to beat the summer heat, a real treat for the skin. The shower gel is pale greenish in color. The consistency is slightly on the thicker side. To use this, I put it on wet loofah and then rub it on my skin. A pea sized amount is all you need to produce good lather. I wish the fragrance had stayed for a long time, but sadly it disappears after an hour of bathing. Malavara Shower Gel doesn’t dehydrate the skin at all. It cleanses the skin well and gives a refreshing feeling. Skin doesn’t feel stretchy at all and one can even skip moisturizer.
Let’s move onto Malavara Body Lotion. It is white in color and has semi runny consistency. It is a rich moisturizing formula, but gets absorbed quickly, leaving you with non sticky, non oily yet hydrated skin. The amazing lime fragrance stays on for couple of hours. The body lotion, being water based, feels very light on the skin. But the moisturization is not long lasting. If you have dry skin, you might need to reapply within few hours. Now, if that is the scenario in summer, you can easily understand that it won’t be able to fulfill your skin’s need in winter.
Overall, Malavara Shower Gel and Body Lotion duo is a nice bath and body care combo in summer. Both the products have refreshing lemony smell, which make them perfect for summer. Free from SLS, harsh preservatives and paraben, both the products are skin friendly. However, the high price is a turn off!
