Summer Essentials - Himalaya Herbals Aloe and Cucumber Body Lotion

Aloe and Cucumber themselves sound very comforting in the summers, don't they ? Himalaya Herbals' Aloe and Cucumber body lotion brings the combo in your body lotion. 

Himalaya Herbals Aloe and Cucumber Refreshing Body Lotion

Himalaya’s Aloe & Cucumber Refreshing Body Lotion is a light and cool body lotion that hydrates and refreshes your skin without leaving it sticky. The lotion gets absorbed fast and leaves the skin rehydrated. Aloe and Cucumber being the primary ingredients, they provide a cooling effect the moment you apply the lotion.

I have tried applying the lotion after my bath and at night before bedtime. I love applying lotions which have a nice fragrance. This lotion has the fresh smell of cucumbers and it gives me a fesh feeling everytime I apply it. The consistency is slightly runny but thankfully does not contribute to the greasy feel that alreay gets quite bad during the day, thanks to Kolkata summers.

However,the lotion does not last long on my dry skin.It gives me hydration for around 4-5 hours and I need to reapply it once during the day. But it might work fine for those with normal or combination skin. 

The lotion comes in the signature Himalaya packaging and is good for travel. The flip lock cap fits well and there is no leakage. 

Lets look at the pros and cons of the product:


  • The combination of Aloe and cucumbers, give a refreshing feel to the skin
  • The lotion provides instant hydration and lasts for about 4-5 hours on dry skin
  • The fragrance is very refreshing
  • Its texture is perfect for the summers


  • No SPF in the body lotion meant specifically for the summers is a huge miss. This would have made the product an abosulte winner
  • I just wish the hydration lasted a few hours more on my skin
