Beauty Blast: St. Ives Intensive Healing Body Lotion

Skin Care

While I’ve had a long battle with an oily T-zone on my face, the rest of my skin has always been dry.  Really. Dry.  I gave up on bar soaps a million years ago because no matter how many moisturizers they claimed to have they wrecked havoc on my skin.  So besides having to get a really good body wash, I always need to have a great body lotion on hand.  While I love a great smelling skin moisturizer, at the end of the day it needs to keep my dryness in check.  I have my tried and true brands but, being the product junkie that I am, I like to keep my options open!

Enter St. Ives Intensive Healing Body Lotion.

Clinically proven to keep skin moisturized for 24 hours, this lotion has 100% natural moisturizers like Olive Oil, Cranberry, Cocoa Butter, Grapeseed Oil and Mango Seed Butter.  It’s also Dermatologist Tested, Hypoallergenic, and formulated without Parabens.  The lotion itself is thicker than your average lotions, though not so thick that it’s hard to put on your skin.  It goes on smooth and creamy, absorbing quickly without feeling greasy like some other intensive healing lotions tend to do.  Despite all of the yummy natural ingredients, the scent is very light.  Other than that, it stays true to its claims, keeping my skin (and very dry feet!) soft and moisturized all day.  Seriously, all day!  This lotion is great for the winter season¸ or every season in my case!
