Aloe Vera and Cocoa Butter have been known well for their hydrating properties, but I never came across a product that would combine both in one product. I have seen many products using them separately or in combination with other ingredients, but never saw these two together. This intrigued me a lot and I gave a try to this new TBC by Nature Aloe Vera and Cocoa Butter Body Lotion! I have been trying this out since a couple of weeks now and I would like to share my views about it today.
About The Looks!
The body lotion comes in a plastic bottle of green color. The body is light green and the cap is dark green in color. There are two stickers stuck on it, one in front and another at the back. The front has the name of the brand and the product with some more key ingredients and the claims. The back has the full ingredients, price, quantity, shelf life, etc, printed. The quality of the plastic is just average and the stickers are not struck properly in line of the bottle and so it looks a little shabby and not so pleasant. The cap is flip open type which is convenient. The bottle it pretty big and the credit goes to the quantity.
Price – 125/-

My views and thoughts about the TBC by Nature Aloe Vera and Cocoa Butter Body Lotion!
The lotion is of a very pale green color and is somewhat runny in consistency. Such that it drips down a little on its own if the bottle is turned upside down. The hole in the flip open cap is a little bit wider than it should be, in my opinion and that is why sometimes it becomes hard to control the amount coming out of the bottle. Now, it smells okay and something green, definitely not Aloe Vera, because I know how that smells like. It might be the smell of the blend of the Aloe Vera and Cocoa Butter as stated on the bottle. I am not sure of that either.
It needs little bit of massaging until it gets absorbed and sinks in to the skin. It does feel good on application and does hydrates the skin, but, for only a few hours. I would say it lasts 4-5 hours and my skin needs a reapplication. Reminder! My body skin is extremely dry in winters! My hands most of the time are in terrible condition due to dryness. The lotion is moderately light and it would be okay for people with normal skin and on them it could last for double the time it lasted on me.
if you look at the ingredients list there are some natural and organic ingredients but at the price of 125/- I doubt a little about the source. Also I was disappointed to see Methyl Paraben and Propyl Paraben in this lotion! If I am going to the natural or organic product, I certainly wouldn’t want parabens in them! Besides parabens I can also see chemicals like Tocopherol Acetate, Dimethicone and Phenoxyethanol in it, which I won’t be expecting in an organic product. Not happy about that. 🙁
I am somewhat disappointed with this product. If something says organic, I don’t expect chemicals, especially Parabens in it. Also, the hydration provided by this product is not enough for my super dry skin. It doesn’t last long on me, not even for 6 hours. If you are okay with a few chemicals and the reapplication required, then this is good choice for the price it comes. 300 ml for just 125/- is quite a good quantity, but I still have my doubts.
