Sonia Kashuk’s Yellow Alluriana Body Lotion Is Putting a Spring in My Step and Grapefruit on My Mind

Published in: Daily Beauty

Oh, winter…


You saucy minx.

For a while there, you had me under your spell. You lured me in with those crisp December mornings and snuggle sessions with El Hub, me and Tabs on the couch, then kept me close with those cozy holiday evenings at home in front of the crackling yule log channel on TV.

Now though…? Now you’re just so damned cold, and I’m totally over you.


Spring can’t get here soon enough. I’ve even been trying to accelerate the process, primarily through the strategic use of bath and body products, particularly grapefruit scents, because, I don’t know why, but they just seem springy and fresh to me — like Sonia Kashuk’s grapefruit-scented Yellow Alluriana Body Lotion (has notes of grapefruit, lemon verbena and musk).

“An all-day moisture-replenishing wonder that helps restore skin’s suppleness, elasticity and tone with regenerative botanical oils and shea butter. Absorbs easily, leaving skin soft and smooth.”

The fragrant, springy formula and mega moisturizing mojo temporarily erase my memories of winter and make me forget that I’m actually typing this sentence while wearing a down jacket, scarf and two pairs of socks.

Thankfully, Yellow Alluriana is available now for $8.99 exclusively at Target stores and

Random fun fact: “pamplemousse,” which is the word grapefruit in French, is my favorite word en Français!

    This week will be in the 70s (even 82 on Wednesday!) for me so I am one happy camper and truly hope it lasts. This polar vortex business needs to quit. Stat. I bought some grapefruit body wash recently in hopes of speeding spring along. Perhaps I need to moisturize with some pamplemousse too!

    I love any body creams that have fruity flavor. Peach, lemon and grapefruit are my favs. Anything to beat those winter blues… I am so over winter as well. We are getting another 8 inches tonight. Thank you for this pick me up review!!

  4. Its been snowing on and off here in Japan and I can hardly wait for spring! My Vaseline Aloe body lotion (which smells of aloe and cucumber, so refreshing!) is hardly hydrating enough for the winter but I love using it because it reminds me of warmer weather. Yellow Alluriana sounds lovely!

    Although I’m pretty well stocked on body cream, this scent sounds AMAZING! I probably won’t be able to resist picking it up the next time I’m in Target.

    I went in to buy Red Promisia one of the other fragrances in this line but fell in love with Yellow alluriana. It smells heavenly. Even my youngest son who is nine keeps saying how good I smell. Loved it so much I bought hand cream, fragrance and body scrub.
