“ Brand: Nourish Me Naked / Type: Body Lotion / Subcategory: Lotion / What it does: Nourishes „
I am slowly making my way through the 'Naked' range of bodycare products and they just keep getting better and better! The most recent addition to my collection is the 'Nourish me naked orange & honey hand & body lotion' which I only decided to try as there was a 2 for 1 offer on in Boots recently and my usual Naked moisturiser was sold out. However, I am really glad that I stumbled across this one, as it's simply gorgeous!
The lotion comes in a clear plastic bottle with a pump action lid. Usually I hate moisturisers with the pump lid as I find that they are quite hard to press when your hands are greasy from the moisturiser. However, the pressing-surface of this one is alot wider than usual meaning that your thumb doesn't slide off the top, and as the bottle is quite a thin, squeezy plastic, you can get quite a good grip unlike with the tough plastic bottles that just slide straight through my fingers. Another important detail is that the packaging is made from recycled material which is never a bad thing!
Being from the Naked range, this hand & body lotion is 97% natural, which is the reason that I love this range - there's no sulphates, parabens or petrochemicals in this product so I feel like it really does do my skin some good. This particular lotion contains orange oil and 'moisturising manuka honey [which] is renowned for its healing qualities'. Other ingredients include lime oil, lemon oil, and bergamot oil, which all sounds very skin friendly to me.
The fragrance of this product is surprisingly not very citrussy at all, which is really surprising given that it contains orange, lemon AND lime oil. The main fragrance is quite a strong honey scent, but there is an undertone of fruit - to me it smells like a fruit salad smothered in honey and so I find it quite a delicious smell. When you first apply the lotion it is a little overpowering but as soon as it sinks in it leaves a delicate, fresh, and delicious, summery fruit and honey fragrance that lasts all day! For me it has the added bonus of making me crave fruit salad, meaning I am more inclined to eat healthily, but I doubt it would have this effect on everyone :D
Perhaps the most important issue with regards to this product is how well it performs as a moisturising lotion. Well, for me this is fantastic - it feels lovely and sinks in almost immediately, leaving your skin non-greasy but very definitely moisturised, without the need to reapply throughout the day. It's probably one of the only hand & body lotions that I have found to be excellent on both the hands and the body - you get great moisturisation but without greasy fingers - perfect!
At £3.99 for 250ml I feel that this lotion is quite reasonably priced, especially given that it is 97% natural AND smells delicious. I've only seen it available in the larger Boots stores or online, but as you can get free delivery to a Boots store when ordering from Boots.com then I think it's definitely worth the few days wait as it's far better than any other 'natural' body lotion I have come across so far, and cheaper as well.
Overall, definitely worth buying this one! It's gorgeous! (and it's not tested on animals!)
