  • natural ingredients
  • great for eczema prone skin
  • a little goes a long way
  • promply absorbed into skin
  • doesn't leave a greasy residue
  • doesn't moisturize immediately
  • the formula is a little too light and watery
  • expensive (18$ for 4 oz (120 ml)
What I think:

First of all, I want you to know that I didn't use this lotion all over my body. I targeted my face and the areas of my body that were suffering from excessive dryness and eczema. This product worked wonders on my body, but it didn't get rid of the dry patches on my face, I don't understand why.

  1. Thanks for the review. It sounds like a great product!

  2. Hi Gaby! omg i have the same exact problem as you.. dry patches all over my eyelids and upper cheek area. And the eyelids always get worse when i wear cheap eyeshadow lol I think it has to do with the cold drying weather! we should just slab olive oil all over our faces haha.. that would make for an interesting review tho!

    ps i love your reviews=)


  3. Hmm. je crois pas que des lotions pour le corps fonctionne pour le visage aussi. les types de peau sont differents =1

  4. great review! i like to layer this with another moisturizer when my skin is super dry

  5. Great review Gaby :) I haven't tried this lotion but for $18, I think I'm going to stick to my tried and true Cetaphil lotion (recommended by my dermatologist years ago) which is 500 mL for the same price. Too bad it didn't work on your face too well :\ But at least it worked for the rest of your body :)

  6. Thanks for reviewing, cuz I saw it on a few blogs but never knew what this lotion is really about lol
