My Favorite Inexpensive Everyday Lotion: Silka Papaya Lotion
For a beauty addict like me, favorites are hard to come by. I like trying new products and yes, sometimes, just for the hell of it. But once Nikki gave me a sample of the orange Yellow Papaya variant of Silka Papaya, I was hooked.
Even with many lotions I keep on checking out and reviewing, I keep coming back to this favorite. Gosh, I don't know why I took this long to share it with you!
I have to admit, I don't like using lotion -- at all! I like how smooth the sheet would feel against my legs and sometimes, lotion can get icky. I admit that our skin needs moisture especially since mine is pretty dry.
But really, those are not the main reasons why I'm sharing this product with you, peeps! It's really not having smoother and whiter skin (although there's those bonus!).
Why do I like it?
It's the scent! It soooo bango! I love the scent like crazy that I crave it! The BF likes it too and people notice it when we beso. I love the scent so much that I use more than that's required. So, I end up using it all up faster! LOL!
Other than that, I love that that its not sticky-icky. Don't you just hate that with lotions?
I don't know if I lightened though since I don't track it my skin's fairness but I'm not getting any dark despite the heat lately. :)
Silka Papaya is so good that when my aunts from the US came to visit, they hoarded the large sizes of the green and yellow papaya variants. I think they bought several bottles. Crazy, right?
Aside from that, my cousin, Frances, uses the green papaya variant and she loves the scent also. But for me, yellow one is FOR THE WIN!!
