The skin on my body is very dry and can look like a cracked desert landscape at the end of the day, very unpleasant. Showers and baths also leave my skin feeling uncomfortably tight and to combat this I always moisterise my entire body after washing. As a result, I like to try different lotions to see which ones I find most effective.
Endless Moisture is a range of lotions produced by E45, a company that I personally feel makes really good moisterisers that are sadly a little too thick, greasy and heavy for me. However, this is not the case with Endless Moisture Daily Care Fragrance Free Body Lotion (what a long name).
On the back of the 300ml pump bottle it says "Light weight - Quickly absorbed - Non greasy - Hypoallergenic - Fragrance Free" in bold letters, and from my experience it is all true, thus making this one of the best lotions that I have ever had the pleasure to purchase and use.
The lotion is like watered down milk (no fragrance at all), very unlike the usual E45 creams. It squirts out of the pump (get ready to catch) and if you're not careful it can spill everywhere as it is so watery. When I'm reaching down to do my legs one or two drops of the lotion splatter onto the floor, though not enough to feel that I'm wasting it. One squirt is enough to do both my arms and a little of my abdomen with two more squirts for the legs and whatever is left of my torso, so a little lotion can go quite far for me(I'm only little). It spreads easily and does not leave a smelly, greasy film on the skin. It is absolute luxury for me without the added cost of gimmicky vitamin E, etc, which I don't even believe works.
After 24 hours my skin still feels and looks hydrated. No one will be mistaking my skin for a dry desert anymore!
The price of it is about £5, I can't fully remember the price at which I bought it though I most likely bought it when it was on offer. However, since this is such a good product, I won't mind paying full price.
This was recommended to me by my Mum. She is always on the hunt for a good hand cream because she is always in her garden in summer sticking her hands in the mud with no gloves on and sawing down trees! It has taken a toll on her hands, combined with the sun and then the scrubbing with a nail brush afterwards! She has sun spots as well as dry skin, brittle nails and sore patches. Thats why she is forever trying out new hand creams. This is the one she believes really works well, even though she is forever washing her hands throughout the day as well, the cream seems to protect them all day. I tried it out and was also pleased with the results. It went on well and blended in well (just a little needed) and quickly with no residue. It doesn't smell of anything and leaves a feeling of a slight film on your hands without being greasy or slimey. My hands felt soft and it also made my nails look nice. Where they are sore after washing up or generally battering them with cleaning tasks, it soothes as well. I am pleased with this moisturiser and it is good value for money, especially if you are using it every day. I also recommend putting it on before bed as in the morning my hands feel really nice and soft, and used regukarly really makes a lasting impression on the look and feel of my hands and nails. I currently only use this on my hands, but am considering switching my usual brand of body moisturiser and using it all over!
