Iraya Wild Flower Nourishing Body Lotion Review

This is a review of Iraya Wild Flower Nourishing Body Lotion for normal to dry skin. It is the most exotic smelling body lotion I have ever used in my life and the best part is that the fragrance comes from natural flower extracts. Once applied after bath, the fragrance stays on your skin till 24 hours, can you believe that?


Quantity: 200 ml
Price: INR 395
Availability: You can buy Iraya Wildflower nourishing body lotion from these links: nykaa.com, amazon.in, jabong.comflipkart.comsnapdeal.com etc.




The lotion comes in a square transparent pump bottle. The pump is lockable but during travelling, you may need to seal it carefully with a tape. Mine had leaked during transit even though it was laminated and further sealed with bubble sheet. The packing should have had a cap to make it more travel friendly.

Brand claims and description:

Iraya wild flower nourishing body lotion claims to nourish and soothe the skin and that's what it exactly does. Check the rest of the description below:

Iraya Wild Flower Nourishing Body Lotion Ingredients:

Key Ingredients:
Lotus Seed: Replenishes nutrients to skin
Aloe: soothes and protects
Sesame: moisturizes and softens



The extract of Ketaki or Panadus Odoratissimus flower along with tuberose and lavender essential oils is what gives such exotic fragrance to this lotion.



Ketaki is commonly known as Kewra or Keora and its extract is mainly used to make perfumes, attars and also used in food and sharbats. I had heard of Kewra as an ingredient in sweets but was oblivious to its heavenly fragrance.

And tuberose is again a VERY fragrant flower. You can also smell a little bit of tulsi (basil/ ocimum sanctum) in this lotion.

My Experience with Iraya Wild Flower Body Lotion:


Iraya Wild Flower body lotion is an extremely light weight formula that is perfect for summers. It is a beige colored lotion, neither too thick nor too runny and spreads easily. I need a small quantity of it to just form a single layer on the skin. When I applied it the first time, I thought it is so light, it may not moisturize my skin. But it proved me wrong.

Right: Hand after lotion absorption and running a nail test.
No shine. But my hand smells exotic and feels soooo soft while I am typing this.
The moment you apply, it gets instantly absorbed leaving the skin bright and nourished, and there is not even a hint of shine or stickiness. There are many body lotions that just sit on the skin and wash out with the first contact with water but this lotion just disappears into the skin in a second. At times our nose becomes immune to a fragrance after a few hours but others can still smell it on us. When I get up the next morning, I can still smell it on my skin up to 24 hours, which really impressed me.

There are several fragrance notes in this lotion. The fragrance is exotic yet not at all heady or over the top. It will appeal even to sensitive noses.

Even though the bottle says it is for normal to dry skin, I think it is quite perfect for oily skinned people too as there is no oiliness at all.

I am someone whose hands remain chapped and skin remains thirsty even in summers and I get cuts within one wash of using a liquid soap. I am surprised this body lotion works so well for such dry skin. I apply just once after bath and no need to reapply, except for my hands. There is not a hint of burning on damaged skin.

If there is any itching on the skin after bathing, this lotion soothes it like magic. There's something very different and satisfying about it, which makes my skin extremely happy whenever I use it.

The quantity is less as compared to other body lotions in the market and price is on the higher side, but it is totally worth it. It supercedes many premium personal care brands.

It may not provide sun protection as it is made up of natural ingredients but it is definitely a luxury worth indulging in at night or after bath.

Disclaimer: I don't own the tuberose and kewra flower images.

    1. Lucky you! You have the facility to go check their products first hand and then decide what to buy. I just have the option to buy online and I was very concerned when I had ordered this one, as I had no idea how it would turn out to be :)

  12. I have been looking for a product with lavender fragrance and when you reviewed it I was very tempted to buy it. recently there was a 25% discount on all products at nykaa.com and I purchased this lotion. it's very nice for summers, doesn't make the skin oily and moisturises it well. Thanks for the helpful review as always.

    1. I am very happy you liked it Jyotika. And I remember you recently told me you found the fragrance strong. You gotta shake the bottle every time for the oils and extracts etc to mix properly and that ways the fragrance is just right and truly exotic. I am about to finish it and want to repurchase :) Thanks for sharing your feedback dear.

    1. Thanks so much for the feedback Ranjana :) I wanted to repurchase it but as winters are approaching, I will buy it again next year now. But I have tried a few more products from Iraya by now and this one smells and feels the best. It does smell divine :) so much so that I now want to buy kewra extract and add it to other products.
