“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Body Lotion/Moisturiser / Subcategory: Lotion „
Seeing this in the reduced section in Sainsbury's for just 99p I decided to give it a try, the usual price being £1.99 for a 400ml bottle.
~ Packaging ~
Very basic packaging and plain in appearance. The cream is dispensed through a small hole at the top of the bottle which is hidden by a flip top lid.
~ What is it? ~
This cream / skin lotion is enriched with multi-vitamins to help hydrate your skin as well as replenish lost moisture.
It is said to be non-greasy and fast absorbing.
Suitable for all skin types.
~ So does it live up to the 'bumph' on the bottle? ~
- The Smell
For me this is the biggest positive about this lotion, I just love the smell of it. It has a rich, warm smell to it which lasts quite some time after applying it but just be aware that it could clash with some perfumes.
Since I don't often adorn myself with perfume this isn't a problem for me.
- The texture
This is surprisingly thin in texture. Given that it is a dry skin lotion, I was expecting it to be richer and thicker in consistency.
Sainsbury's are certainly correct in their claim that it isn't greasy and it absorbs quickly in to my skin, in particular the drier skin sections. This is another positive for this lotion as so many others take what feels like an age to absorb in to your skin.
- Effectiveness at hydrating my skin
I don't have very dry skin all over but suffer from dry patches and flakiness on my shins, in particular during cold weather spells.
This lotion has worked efficiently in these areas and has certainly kept the unsightly flakes at bay and has reduced the itchiness of these areas, if used regularly.
~ My Verdict ~
Overall I am pleased with this product and in particular the reduced price I paid for it. So often, cheaper lotions and potions are a false economy but not so with this one as it does what it says and a little goes a long way.
The only negative for me is the packaging - not the fact that it looks dull and boring but rather the bottle as opposed to a tub due to the waste factor. This is a minor grumble when everything else is taken in to account.
Replenish moisture with multi-vitamins!
