Allegra Rhodes Sweet Apple & Grapefruit Body Lotion



I love body lotions. I can't get enough of them! I've made my way through about every readily available moisturiser you can name, so I'm pretty obsessed.

I was recently given the opportunity to try a body lotion from Allegra Rhodes! I've never heard of their brand before, but upon some research  I decided I definitely wanted to give this one a go! 

Not only are Allgera Rhodes products made/owned in Australia, but they are also cruelty free! So, they've ticked my first two big boxes. Let's see how the actual product itself was?



Sweet Apple & Grapefruit

Hmm now that's different! Allegra Rhodes boasts the scent to be "delightfully reviving," and it was just that! The scent is really light, and the sweet apple is definitely the dominant smell. It's a lot sweeter than I'm used to, although in saying that it is not a candy sickly sweet, but a lovely crisp apple sweet! I feel like I could take a bite out of my arm after using it! 



The body lotion comes in a pump bottle (perfect!) instead of a squeeze tube, and makes it a lot easier to use! It also looks a lot nicer and more professional sitting on my bathroom sink!

I adore the packaging. I'm not sure if you can see due to the photos, but the black label has an intricate design similar to that on the box. The packaging looks very neat and tidy, and very expensive! 



The quality of the body lotion itself is excellent! It sunk straight into my skin and left no greasy residue whatsoever. It's very moisturising, but to the point where your skin will feel "normal" instead of having too much moisture, or too less.

The scent does linger, which is something I find delightfully pleasant, seeing as though the scent is so refreshing and unique! If it had been a sickly candy sweet, I might not have enjoyed the fact that the scent lingers, but in this case I'm very happy that it does!

Overall, I am in love with this body lotion! It truly is a luxurious addition to my skincare, and I really do enjoy using it - and smelling it! I have had a few compliments about the scent (as it's so predominant I don't need to wear perfume!) and had a few comment on how unique it smells!

The Allegra Rhodes Body Lotion will set you back $32.95 for a 250ml pump bottle, which you can buy here.
Make sure you check out the website (here) for many more gorgeous products, as well as this one!

Have you tried anything from Allegra Rhodes before? If so, what did you think?

This product was kindly provided for my consideration.

  7. I heard good things about the hand cream with this scent that was in Bellabox, and I liked the hand cream I got (which was ocean mist). But I probably wouldn't spend that much on a body lotion (Plus, I'm addicted to Body Shop products anyway, haha)

  10. This sounds lovely, especially how you described the sweet apple scent! I know what you mean about not liking really candy sweet scents, I prefer something that's juicier and more refreshing :)
