You all might be watching the TV ad- 'poshan wala lotion' these days. Thats the JOY Honey and Almonds Body lotion- lotion with nourishment of Honey and Almonds from +joycosmetics
Almond has been considered one of the best nourishment food source and holds a great significance in indian ayurvedic and herbal skin & hair nourishing treatments.
I loved Aroma Magic's Almond lotion and while checking out body lotions, i purchased this last year looking into the thick consistency and quantity given. Onset of Winter's make you search all good options for winter care be it body or face. And a good Body lotion is a must. In India we have very few options available in this category.
The brand 'JOY' might not be that popular but being an INDIAN brand and it has gained popularity and captured market quite soon.

The ingredient lists says-
Not completely Natural, long list of chemicals and contains Parabens too.
Product Quantity and Price-
Available in - 50, 100, 300 & 500 ml sizes. I got 500 ml at 165 INR. Quite Reasonably priced, isn't it? Availble at all retail counters in India and Online too.
Product Texture and Fragrance-
As soon as i took a small dollop on my palm for trial i was impressed to see the thick imulsion and next moment it was in my bag. Fragrance..yup its little strong which even lingers for a little long.
As i said, its a thick emulsion (reminds me of condensed milk) which spreads well and you need small amount as compared to other lotions, for your body. Soon after application, its absorbed and no greasiness or stickiness remains. Your skin is smooth, shiny and pampered for next 7-8 hours. There are so many lotions with the same ingredient list and with similar claims too available in the market and only few actually lives up to the claims; but it actually delivers the nourishment (poshan).
I used to apply this after bath in the morning and before sleeping. Even i found this good for my kiddo too. I apply this in the morning and then no worries for rest of the day. Although they claim to have sunscreen but did not notice much of the sun shielding effect. I would suggest using a good sunscreen too.
Only downside is the strong fragrance which may bother sensitive noses, also that its not natural/herbal.
Overall, its truly a BUDGET BARGAIN with impressive results and that too at a very reasonable price. Recommended!
