India Hicks Island Living Spider Lily Body Lotion is my Holy Grail Body lotion. I am shamelessly confessing that this is my third bottle and one of the best body lotions I have used till date.


A bit about India Hicks Island Living Spider Lily Body Lotion

The delicate spider lily is the star fragrance of Island Living bath and body products. Its tropical accords are blended with the scents of the sea, salt and sand, fruit trees and flowers. This fragrance is inspired by the island breezes that sweep over India’s veranda at sunset, bringing with them the scent of casuarina leaves, palm fronds, orange blossoms and salty air.

I personally can’t stop raving about this product. It comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with a pump dispenser which is easy to use; it’s not very travel friendly but that’s ok with me. Consistency of the product is lotion based; it is easier to apply and gets absorbed in the skin very fast so there’s no sticky feeling left. I have oily skin and for me lotion based is a better option than cream based as the cream takes ages to absorb in the skin and the oily feeling lasts for a long time.


I love how it gets absorbed fast in the skin leaving it soft, supple and fresh. The fragrance is lovely and mild; not at all overpowering. Fragrance lasts for around an hour or more and gradually starts fading but, the moisturising effect lasts the whole day. My husband also caved in finally and is now a religious user of this lotion.

Apply after a bath or shower to lock in moisture. This soothing lotion is infused with honey and toning hibiscus extracts to help condition your skin. It contains grape seed, mango and olive oils and formulated without parabens, phthalates or propylene glycol.

Priced at INR 1,750/- for 250ml it is a bit pricy for a body lotion but is worth it. 

REVIEW - CRABTREE & EVELYN INDIA HICKS ISLAND LIVING – SPIDER LILY BODY LOTION

Spring is just around the corner and this beautiful pastel emerald green (if that makes sense) fits the bill perfectly. 




Colorbar nail polishes have never disappointed me in terms of quality and the price and this shade “Apple Martini” was no exception. The formulation of Colorbar nail polishes is amazing and two coats will give a beautiful opaque finish with a glossy shine. This nail polish lasted a good four days without chipping and finishing off with a top coat will make it last even longer. It also dries fairly quickly which is just another plus point for us.

Apple Martini is a beautiful and fun Spring/Summer shade which adds a hint of quirkiness to your style. I absolutely love it and will be sporting it for quite some time in these coming months.

Stay tuned for more Spring/Summer Nail colour favourites next Monday.

So, what’s your favourite Spring/Summer shade?
