Beauty Review: Body Lotion Roundup

300

Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion – Hmm. Mixed feelings about this one. The texture is lovely – a light, almost transparent white cream, and blends in so well to the skin. It also smells wonderful and gives the skin a nice glow. As far as actually moisturizing however, I’m not sure this is effective for dry skin – it did not improve my skin’s condition over time and does seem like the kind of milder lotion which must be used EVERY day to be moisturizing. Not exactly what I’m looking for, but not a “lose it!” either.

Nivea Essentially Enriched Lotion – Lose it. Has the thickness and consistency of suntan lotion; not what you want in a daily body lotion.

Nivea Intensive Body Lotion. This is a good body lotion. The formula is thick and white but rubs easily into your skin without leaving a residue. It gives skin a healthy glow and moisturizes and gives relief to even the driest skin. I tried once on the face and don’t recommend (a little strong and made skin tingle) but as a body lotion this is very effective – and has a wonderful, light smell. I use this during the winter.

Nivea Smooth Sensation Daily Lotion.  Jackpot with this one! This is perhaps slightly better for summer as it’s a little lighter than the Intensive, but it’s my favorite body lotion so far – great smell, moisturizes well, and blends in easily to give skin lovely light glow.

Jergen’s Ultra Healing – relieves dryness but left small, raised bumps on skin. Don’t buy.

Yes to Carrots Super Rich Body Butter – Great stuff – I was looking for a deep but not greasy winter moisturizer to supplement Nivea Intensive and this is amazing – very light but lovely smell, absorbs quickly, and seems to moisturize thoroughly – definitely a keeper
