What I think about this product:
A nice looking pump bottle which is easy to use and helps avoid spillage and leakage of the lotion.
This is what it looks like:
It has a light pleasant fragrance that stays all day long :-) Those who dont like very strong fragrances might like this alot.
Does it really work?
Well, this lotion is one that is especially formulated for extra dry skin. I bought this when i was in Islamabad so i can use it during the winters. My skin gets really VERY dry during the winters and nothing else seems to work. I found a bottle of this lotion and i was really impressed! it works.
But if you are living in a hot country or if you want to use it during summer.. you might find this lotion a bit greasy and sticky.. it doesnt absorb into the skin very quickly and it feels slightly sticky all over! So unless its winter this lotion is a definite NO.
Now that im back to colombo, i use this lotion just on my dryEST parts like my elbows, knees and feet! And i find it very helpful.
I would say this is a really good moisturizer BUT looking at its ingredients i noticed that it contains mineral oil which i heard does alotta harm to the skin.. so i was thinking.. is it worth the risk?
My final verdict:
A good moisturizer for winter!
Will I repurchase it:
If i live in a really cold country i will! But the fact that it contains mineral oil bothers me a bit.
Have a Pink Day :-)
