Price of the Product and Packaging

The product is priced at INR 900 (On Amazon available for a price of $15.68) for 10.14 Fl. Oz. (300ML). It comes in a plastic pump bottle, that makes it easy to draw the lotion from the bottle without leaving any residue on the bottle. The packaging itself is recyclable.

The Product

The lotion is lightweight, has a creamish-beige color to it, and has a very light citrusy fragrance. There is no olive oil fragrance per se, but the overall fragrance is kind of soothing and light. On application, the lotion is immediately absorbed into the skin and moisturizes the area to which it has been applied to. The moisturizing effect lasts for about 7-8 hours on my skin, it can differ from person to person. The lotion can be suitable for both summer and winter, for people who have normal to dry skin. For people with oily skin, this may be suitable in the winter.

Product Texture

Pros of Innisfree Olive Real Body Lotion:

  • The lotion is highly moisturising and hydrating.
  • The fragrance is very pleasant and not too overpowering.
  • The lotion is lightweight, not sticky and absorbs quickly into the skin.
  • The lotion can be applied in any season.

Cons of Innisfree Olive Real Body Lotion:

  • The longevity of the product is a question mark. It claims to moisturize the skin for 24 hours, but I think for my skin it works for a good 7-8 hours. Now, this may differ from person to person too, as everyone has a different kind of skin.

Personal Opinion

The lotion has a lot of great qualities. The texture of the product is the best part of the lotion. I am amazed at how quickly it absorbs into the skin and has the goodness of olive oil. The lotion instantly provides hydration to the skin without feeling sticky. It is definitely worth a try and I would give it a rating of 4.5 out of 5.
