Plum Choco-latte Luxuriant Body Lotion Review

Every chocolate-lover like me can swear by the quote above and I have been believing it religiously ever. My belief got firmer when a decently looking skin-friendly product i.e.      Plum Choco-latte Luxuriant Body Lotion reached me few days back. Coz like my usual practice, when I started reading the detailed info on the product pack, seeing the same wordings written there left me all amused :)

I'm going to share my views about Plum Choco-latte Luxuriant Body Lotion today.

Look n Feel of Packaging:
The Plum Choco-latte Luxuriant Body Lotion comes in a sturdy plastic liquid dispenser pump bottle of somewhat very pale white-brown color with locking clip that can be rotated clockwise for locking n can be rotated anti-clockwise for opening. The initial discharge for the first use comes out in 3-4 pumps with as enough quantity required for one time usage.

What All ingredients are welcomed?

Plum, with its short yet meaningful tagline "Be Good", ensures to indulge our delicate skin into goodness of genuinely life-friendly n natural ingredients in all their products. Same is true for Choco-latte Luxuriant Body Lotion too, which is formulated with Aqua (Water as a base of lotion), Cetearyl Alcohol (extracted from plants like palm or coconut & used as lotion thickener), Ethylhexylglycerine (works as preservative booster in the lotion), FDA Approved Colours n Fragrance, Glycerin (to attract moisture to skin and to keep away dryness), Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil (its the similar sunflower oil that is edible),
Phenoxyethanol (again a preservative used to keep the formulation intact), Stearic Acid (works as a softener), Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter (commonly named as Cocoa butter, the most tempting n indulgent moisturizer) and Triethanolamine (adjusts the pH level in the lotion formulation).

Digging deep into the finest details of ingredients, it got proved why the Founder of Plum had quoted with great pride that "Goodness & knowledge have one amazing thing in common: the more you give, the more you get."     


What All is not acceptable?

Plum strictly avoids using certain ingredients in its products which are harmful and toxic for human skin like parabean, SLS, DEA or synthetic fragrances etc. Their commitment towards safe ingredients can be read here.

Ingredient List
My experience with Plum Choco-latte Luxuriant Body Lotion
My skin is usually thirsty for more n more moisture round the clock n throughout the year. Yeah... its needs to be fed with finer quality of food in good quantity ;) Plum's Chololatte body lotion came as a healthier solution to dryness of my skin.

Resisting the temptation to lick the creamy textured and deliciously fragrant lotion was indeed a task as soon as I took out few drops on my palm for the first time. Thankfully!! Plum claims it to be "strictly inedible"  ;) After its application on my skin, I was under the continuous impression as if a steaming hot cuppa drinking chocolate is lying beside me and I ended up smelling my wrist quite a few times while being busy with my work  ;)

I had been checking my arms' upper half frequently for those signs of usual li'l dry patches that are generally visible in few hours after bathing, but Plum kept its promise of goodness perfectly, as there was no sign of dryness even after 6-7 hours. 

The lotion's consistency is not watery thin, rather like a gel it quietly stays on your palm till you rub it with bare hands on your external skin. The very very pale brownish toned lotion gets absorbed into skin quite prompt without leaving that usual shiny, greasy layer on the top. It prevents skin breakout also because the moisture is locked in the skin by the use of generous quantity of cocoa butter as an active ingredient.

1. Natural Ingredients
2. Skin Safe n Environment Safe.
3. Yummiliciously Aromatic.
4. Travel friendly packaging with safe locking.
5. Convenient To Use Bottle.
6. Non-greasy Formulation with sufficient Moisture.
7. Easy Ordering Process & Promise of Prompt Delivery.
8. Not Animal Tested i.e Cruelity Free.
 1. A bit expensive for Rs. 390 for 200 ml (but who won't be ready to pay few extra pennies if the assurance of healthy youthful skin comes along) 
2. Only available online and not at physical stores.
My overall thought is that Plum's Chocolatte lotion can not only repair your dry skin during harsh winter, but it’s light enough to carry you all the way through hot summers too. The high one gets from eating or drinking chocolates can now definitely be enjoyed by wearing a layer of chocolatte on your skin (if you are so calorie-conscious;) ) I'm myself trapped to its addiction now :)

And those who still need a reason to buy from Plum, this one is for you all....Plum gives away 1% of its overall sale to environmental non-profit organizations being a global member of One Percent for The Planet. I salute their involvement in such noble gesture and infact, they indirectly give their customers a chance to contribute for the betterment of our planet.

Now, I've found happiness for my skin. If you are convinced on rewarding your skin with a skin-safe n natural body lotion, you can simply go through Plum's lovely product range on their website here or can just SMS PLUM on 56161 to take guidance from their advisors. The plus point is that Plum charges NO SHIPPING FEE on most products all over India.
