I’ve got a secret,
It’s time for me to tell that you’ve been keeping me warm
-Corrs, Summer Sunshine
I have a confession.
I’m really not into lotions.
Isn’t it evident? I don’t blog much about them, but I do – I get to give them a chance for a week, but sometimes, even if they’re good, and do my skin good, I forget about them after a week as my skin’s just THAT stubborn. My skin would gather up all excuses to skip on applying body lotions and stay as dry as it is!
There are only two instances wherein I actually take notice of my skin – post-beach, when I see my skin darken and be drier than usual, and during really cold, and chilly weather.
Well, I think I might have found something really precious, and effective, and at the sometime, great enough to hold my interest!
I’ve tried this wonder lotion that claims to hold moisture on your skin for 24 hours, and keep it soft that way. I didn’t believe it at first, but I just gave it a shot over a freezing day inside the office. I read the press release that was accompanied with it and it said that the formula is backed by a Nobel Prize technology. Seriously? Now, if this isn’t true, I was about to protest for something to this brand with its ostentatious claims! Well, challenge is ON for the lotion hater Sophie!
Giving this body lotion a shot…here are my initial thoughts about it –
At first use of the product, what I first noticed was the smell. Faint, neutral enough for everyone, specially me. No floral froufrous, no musky magic over there. Just a clean, clean scent. Aside from that, I was also happy with its consistency – it was not useless-too-watery lotion, but it wasn’t too thick either. Just thin enough to glide smoothly on my harassed and dry skin without me feeling horrible. Oh, I hate heavy lotions, that they affect my mood within the day! Texture wise, and smell-wise, it already passed my standards.
Now, did it soften my skin? Ok here’s what exactly happened.
You’d expect the lotion to dissipate into thin air within seconds while you lightly rub it in your skin, right? Well, this one didn’t get absorbed in my skin ASAP. Well, it did, but I could still feel my skin a little bit moist. In a few seconds, I immediately felt my skin soften, though not extremely as my skin is really, really dry. So I wonder, how long will this “softness” last?
Four hours. Yes, believe it or not, I felt that “initial softening effect” for a total of four hours before I stopped paying attention to my skin. This just might be the most impressive body lotion that I’ve ever tried that kept my skin soft, and got me addicted?
Well, what is this? It’s a lotion that claims it addresses the 8 signs of dry skin. Promises, promise. With these promises, results are all I wanna see!
I will definitely be revealing this and updating you about this product very very soon, just let me enjoy the product for a few more days to validate!
Who’s curious, and who’s guessing? For the meanwhile, why don’t you let me know what’s your favorite body lotion to date? I’d love to hear from you!
