Parachute Advansed Goodies box & Summer Fresh Body lotion review

Look what I got in mail!! " Ta da-drum rolls please"

"Parachute Advansed Summer Fresh Body Lotion goodies box"

Parachute Advansed body lotions are one pampered lot and their PR company takes such good care of them. These babies come in their own plush custom engraved boxes with satin bows, scented candles, candies and with love songs and works!! Don't believe me then check out the previous PeachiliciousParachute Advansed Pre-Valentines Gift Hamper the company sent out.

In case you are wondering the candy is Foxs fresh mints and the candle is Vanilla scented & is going to sit on my bedside table :) Yup I love these girly things by my bedside- scented candles,flowers and my lotion potions :D
This lotions has tons going for it, sensuous & dangerously curvy bottle design, fresh light green color of the bottle looks distinctive and is very eye soothing.The lotion contains cool mint extracts and coconut milk.The lotion contains UV A  B Base protection.
The lotion is backed by trusted Marico brand name and is available at very pocket friendly prices.
20 mL for Introductory price of Rs 5, 100 Ml for Rs 65 and 250 Ml for Rs 125

Here's what the company claims
"The parachute Advansed Body Lotion contains mint extracts which provide and instant cooling on skin   refresh it after a long summer day,coconut milk infuses light moisture to soften skin  keep it supple."

The ingredient list

I really like the pointed plastic tip which fits perfectly in to the spout of the bottle and prevents any spillage.


Now I'll be very honest that I'm a 24/7/365 thick cocoa body butter kind of person, and normally body lotions don't get much tender loving care from me, but right now in sweltering Delhi heat the thick body butter is unbearable.I feel I'm left with an oil slick every time I'm using my thick body butter.

I didn't really think I'd be thrilled by a coconut & mint body lotion,but when I first opened the bottle I was so pleasantly surprised by the soothing fresh green floral fragrance. Its such a distinct fragrance like that of  fresh flowers in a summer garden.Somehow it instinctively reminded me of my mom's lush garden and I loved the happy memories of coconut trees and flowers it brought in my head.
I hurriedly slathered on the lotion & felt the cooling sensation on my skin, not the chill tingling kind but it felt like a nice pleasant cool breeze.I decided to test ride if for an entire day.


The texture of the cream is thin & non greasy and it spreads very easily on the skin and absorbs quickly. I checked my skin after 6 hours and my skin still felt hydrated and non sticky.The fragrance lingers on for a long time too & personally I find it to be a real high point of the lotion.


Overall Thoughts- If you are looking for a fresh and light body lotion for sweltering summers then this baby is just right. It gives the perfect amount of hydration without feeling sticky or greasy.The fragrance is amazing and if you are looking for a fresh new fragrance in your body lotion, Parchute Advansed Summer fresh comes highly recommended from me.I also spotted tester dispensers of this lotion in some stores and you can actually try these before you buy.

P.S.-The product was sent by the brand for review purpose.Opinions are my own & unbiased as always.

  3. I have been trying this lotion and I absolutely love it. It is so fresh isn't it? The weather in Bangalore is very windy and my skin is getting dry by the minute. I apply this lotion once soon after my bath when leaving home for work and again just before going to bed. It has been an amazing experience since I started using Parachute advansed body lotion summer fresh.

    1. Texture wise both are similar, though this one has a mild cooling sensation thanks to the mint extracts. Personally I like the summer fresh one better, I find it's fragrance is more appealing
