From Elizabeth Arden’s website:
Get the fragrance that energizes the body, excites the senses and awakens the spirit. Our restorative and moisturizing body lotion is infused with fragrant green tea extract, leaving skin feeling hydrated, silky and smooth.
What I liked:
- fresh and summery green tea scent
- lightweight texture that absorbs quickly
- makes skin soft and smooth
What I didn’t like:
- both the scent and its moisturizing power are short-lived
One way to make the short-lived scent of your favourite body wash last longer is to apply the matching body lotion just after your shower. That’s exactly what I do every time I shower with Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Energizing Bath & Shower Gel. The Green Tea Refreshing Body Lotion has the same fresh and summery floral green tea scent, with subtle hints of citrus to make it even more invigorating.
The beautiful scent of the lotion doesn’t, unfortunately, last very long on its own, but, when layered over the body wash, it can linger up to seven hours on the skin. But what about its moisturizing power? Does that fare better? Well, that depends on how dry your skin is. The lotion is very lightweight, sinking in quickly, but isn’t moisturizing enough for my very dry skin. Just after application, it leaves my skin soft, smooth and smelling wonderful, but a few hours later, its hydrating effect is gone, forcing me to reapply another layer.
However, I believe that Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Refreshing Body Lotion would work much better for people with oily skin, who don’t need a lot of hydration. It is also more suitable for the hot summer months than the cold winter weather that tends to dry out skin even more. If you decide to try it, I recommend you wait for a sale or purchase it in a gift set that also includes the matching fragrance and body wash to get more bang for your buck. At $13.00 a bottle, this Refreshing Body Lotion isn’t that cheap.
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Refreshing Body Lotion has a lightweight texture that sinks in quickly into the skin, leaving skin soft and smooth for a few hours. However, it’s not moisturizing enough for those with dry skin. Its pleasant and fresh floral green tea scent doesn’t last long either.
