This was actually an impulse buy. I had visited a Health Food store to purchase an organic hair dye and this happened to be on sale ($4.99, original price $6.99) and I decided to give it a try. Our body is bombarded with chemicals from a lot of the products we use so I wanted to try something that was a natural product and I thought this was a good start. This product does not contain harsh chemicals, parabens, phthalates or petrolatum (mineral oil). It contains Vitamin C & E and Kukui Oil with the aroma of lavender. This product is also cruelty-free which is another plus.
Firstly, you get a lot of product for the price (227g) and I like that it comes in a squeeze tube rather than a pump bottle. It has a thinner consistency than most lotions which allows it to be absorbed into the skin a lot faster. It moisturises without feeling sticky. It leaves your skin feeling really smooth and hydrated without leaving an oily film on your skin. This lotion is best suited for those with normal to dry skin. It probably won`t be moisturising enough for those with very dry skin (i.e. cracking and peeling) but it works as a good day to day lotion. It is recommended that this lotion is applied to slightly damp skin after washing/showering and this is definitely the best way to apply it. It's very gentle on the skin and I had no adverse reaction to it.
This lotion also came in vanilla and cocoa butter but I liked the lavender scent the best. The other ones were too strong for my liking. The scent might throw off some people, specially those that prefer unscented products but I actually like the scent. While it is lavender, this lotion only has a slight hint of a floral scent. It has a very light, calming sweet-floral scent that last quite a long time. I love using this before going to bed due it its aroma-therapeutic properties.
I would most likely buy this again specially for the summer months.
