Ashley Amber Flirtation Body Lotion

Most of us are currently focused on finding a nourishing body care, some are even suffering certain skin conditions that demand special skin treatment (such as eczema, psoriasis etc.). But some are just so damn lucky that they have the luxury to only handpick delightful textures and search for beautifully scented lotions – even during winter. Well, if you're one of those lucky gals than I have a very sweet and even affordable treat. Ashley Amber Flirtation Body Lotion (236ml) came into my posession quite unexpectedly but this one I find to be perfect for fragrance layering purposes. Some of you might even recognize the packaging, others are likely to think of Victoria's Secret body care and if you fall into the latter group you'd be right. As far as I can tell, Ashley body care is heavily inspired (although not associated to) VS's range. I haven't had the chance to try the original stuff so for me this is the next best thing.

Vecina nas je trenutno zauzeta pronalaskom dosta hranljive njege za kozu, neke oda nas se suocavaju sa mukama po odredjenim stanjima koze (tipa ekcema, psorijaze i sl.). No neke od nas su sretnice koje imaju luksuz da cak i tokom isusujucih faktora zime imaju mogucnost da uzivaju u odabiru razlicitih tekstura i varijeteta mirisnih nota. Ukoliko ste jedna od ovih sretnica, onda za vas imam jednu jako primamljivu ali i za dzep pristupacnu mazalicu. Ashley Amber Flirtation losion za tijelo 236ml (9,70KM, u BiH dostupan za poruciti preko Facebook stranice Lilocosmetics Kakanj) mi je sasvim nenadano postao dijelom kolekcije mazivih delicija a namjenu sam mu pronasla kao sredstvo za intenziviranje parfema tj. pomagac je u tom naumu. Neke od vas ce prepoznati pakovanje, druge ce opet asocirati na Victoria's Secret njegu tijela. Druga skupina bi svakako bila upravu jer, koliko mogu reci, ako nisu direktno u svezi sa VS brendom – posluzili su im kao intenzivni izvor inspiracije. Nazalost, nisam imala priliku da isprobam originalnu verziju tako da je za mene trenutno ovo ‘the next best thing’.

Amber Flirtation is packaged in a very aesthetically pleasing tube but you have to take note of the very detailed 236ml weight – is there a legitimate reason not to go for 240ml or 250ml? Besides being a visual treat for the eye, this body lotion has a wonderful scent. It's not too sweet, not candy-like, not floral, not zesty and not soapy – really tough to explain, eh? It does have a certain warmth which is expected of an amber-based lotion and it's very feminine. It has an aura but it's not overpowering. I found that it works beautifully under my Christian Lacroix Ambre EDP and it even intensifies it for a longer period of time. As for the hydration it provides – it's pretty light as the lotion feels hydrating, fresh and gets absorbed quickly (oil-free finish). It is enriched with avocado extracts and grape seed oil. I wouldn't say it's main purpose lies in boosting the hydration levels – that seductive scent is its forte. The only downside would be the ingredients list for all you puritans out there. Mineral oil and  parabens – if that's something bothersome for you and you're after some serious nourishment than perhaps this is not up your street. However, if you're quite liberal with your ingredients, have a skin that doesn't require extra care and are into beautiful scents to perhaps even layer with your warm, amber-y pefumes than I found your leading lady!

Amber Flirtation je upakovan u tubu estetski prijatnog izgleda a meni je cak precizna mililitraza od 236ml zapala za oko – da li mislite postoji li neki legitiman razlog zbog cega se brend nije odlucio za okruglih 240ml ili 250ml? Osim sto je rijec o vizuelno prijatnom pakovanju, ovaj losion krasi i nevjerovatno lijep miris. Nije previse sladak, nije seceran, nije cvijetan, nije citrusan ali nije ni sapunast – prilicno ga je tesko docarati. Doduse, posjeduje odredjenu toplinu (sto smo i ocekivali od proizvoda sa mirisnom notom ambre) a meni na pamet pada rijec ‘zenstven’. Miris nakon nanosenja se jako lijepo osjeti sa koze ali nije zagusujuci niti napadan. Primjetila sam kako fantasticno funkcionise ispod Christian Lacroix Ambre EDP mirisa, cak ga intenzivirajuci duze vrijeme. Sto se tice hidratacije koju ovaj losion pruza – dosta je lagano hidratantan, osvjezavajuci i nemastan. Obogacen je ekstraktom avokada i uljem sjemenki grozdja. Ne bih rekla da je osnovni cilj ili svrha ovog losiona neka ozbiljna hidratacija koze – ovo je prvenstveno parfimirani losion i kao takav mi se jako svidja. Jedina mana za sve puritance po pitanju sastojaka jeste prisustvo mineralnog ulja i parabena. Ukoliko vam to ne odgovara, trazite intenzivnu hranljivost i koza je dosta zahtjevna/osjetljiva – onda ovaj losion mozda i nije najbolji izbor za vas. Ako ste pak nesto liberalnijih stavova po pitanju sastava, imate zahvalnu kozu koja ne zahtjeva posebnu hranljivost i uopsteno cijenite mirisne kvalitete koje bi mozda iskoristili za slojevito intenziviranje parfema – pronasla sam damu za glavnu ulogu u tom filmu!
