I really really love the fresh scent of this lotion, I actually tried some out in the store and afterwards I had to buy it because I fell in love! I am so happy that I bought it, it picks me up on a day when I am feeling a bit down and makes me happy.
Pros: Heavenly scent, quickly absorbs into the skin
Cons: Fragrance doesn’t last very long and a small amount of product often gets caught in the pump and dries up
In a Nutshell: This non-greasy lotion smells like fresh lemons and makes an excellent summer body lotion.
I have been a loyal Body Shop customer for many years now so was very excited when a neighbor gave me a bottle of the Sweet Lemon Body Lotion. I knew I was in for a treat.

~ My Experience
I have dry skin that nearly always requires a lotion or moisturizer, especially after a bath or shower.
The Sweet Lemon Whip Body Lotion has a light consistency and is a cheerful yellow color. The fragrance is lovely. Uplifting and invigorating and just perks me up in the morning after my shower. It reminds me of a spring day. It smoothes on nicely, and absorbs fairly quickly into the skin and does not leave a sticky or greasy residue. A little bit goes a long way. It leaves my skin softened and lightly moisturized. The product is not heavy and the scent is not overpowering. In fact, the scent does not last very long at all. After just a few minutes, it starts to fade. Although, one could layer this product with The Body Shop’s other Sweet Lemon products so as to maximize on the refreshing lemon scent as well as the hydrating effects.
Although the lotion comes with the benefit of a pump, I find that a small amount of product gets left behind in the pump, causing it to dry up so that every time you re-use the lotion, the dried up lotion comes out first, followed by the lotion itself. You then have to pick out the dried up bit and throw it away, resulting in wastage of product.
~ Final Thoughts
The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Whip Body Lotion is a nice, lightweight lotion with a light texture. It leaves the skin smooth and soft, and lightly moisturized. It is suitable for normal to dry skin and is a perfect summer hand and body lotion.
I received this as a Christmas gift and I liked it. The texture was great, very creamy, not greasy. It absorbed well, and my skin felt soft and moisturized all day. The scent also lasted well. I couldn't tell if I smelled like a Lemon Meringue Pie or furniture polish, but either way I liked it! I only received a little trial size bottle, so it ran out quickly, but I will definitely be buying more.
