Skin Cravings: Smooth Over Body Lotion and Scrub Me Pretty Body Scrub

You know, I just realized that I don't use any food-themed skincare product in my daily routine. It's really more of a personal preference since I enjoy florals and fresh scents more than those resembling food. 

However, I do like Inovitelle's latest skincare line called Skin Cravings. It features the Smooth Over Body Lotion (P240) and Scrub Me Pretty Body Scrub (P255) in two flavors each. I enjoy using the scrub because it's not drying, while the lotion absorbs in the skin immediately.

What I love about the Scrub Me Pretty Body Scrub:

  • The smell! It's not too strong and doesn't have that fake chemical odor. All variants smell exactly as they promised: Cranberry Yogurt, Dewberry Yogurt, and Strawberry Yogurt.
  • The scrub beads are not abrasive on skin. It cleans very well nonetheless.

  • After scrubbing, the skin doesn't feel raw and dry.
  • Package design! I love the milk bottle concept, plus the image layouting. Tres cute.
  • Price is very friendly. Only P255 a bottle which should be good for at least 5 uses, depending on the amount you use.

What I don't like about the product

  • A little more scrub beads wouldn't hurt. This isn't really a con, more like a wish. 
  • The bottle, while pretty, is not practical inside the bathroom. The smooth surface means that it becomes slippery, and it's really inconvenient to get the product out. I would have preferred a pump or a jar.

What I love about the Smooth Over Body Lotion:

  • Non-sticky! This is a top priority for me when it comes to body lotions.
  • Absorbed by the skin and dries quickly. 
  • Moisturizes well (that's a given)
  • Smells nice! Choc'Mint Kisses and Strawberry Cream smells a lot like their namesakes.
  • Easy to get the product out because the lower part can be squeezed.
  • Pretty packaging.
  • Affordable at P240 for 250ml

What I don't like about the product

  • Nothing major. I hope the fragrance can be toned down a bit. But that's just my personal preference. I do know some girls who like fragrant body lotion.


If you can only get one thing from Skin Cravings, go for the Scrub Me Pretty scrub in Cranberry Yogurt! It's my fave because I like the tangy smell of cranberries. It's not typical like strawberry, and not unfamiliar like dewberry. If you're more interested in the body lotions, I enjoy the Choc'Mint Kisses one because of the slightly minty tingle when you spread it all over the skin, plus I get to smell like mint chocolate (I love these!). Strawberry Cream has the typical strawberry scent, nothing special.

The scrub and lotion are friendly to dry, thin skin as well as oilier ones. 


Skin Cravings is on to something here. I hope there are more variants soon! In the meantime, I' happy with my Cranberry Yogurt scrub. It cheers me up, and I find the scent energizing, as well.

Oh, tip when using the body scrub: deposit your desired amount in a dish (like ketchup), and use the product from there! This is what spas do. ;)
