I picked this up when I was in need of a good moisturiser for my legs and arms. Previously I was using a cheap and boring one, Coles brand I believe, which was alright but nothing special. I didn't want to pay much for this considering I would be using this frequently in great amounts and I wouldn't even see it (not like a fun lipstick or blush!).
It needed to be highly moisturising as my legs were quite dry, but it couldn't be at all greasy or leave any residue because that is just something that I cannot tolerate. I saw this for about $5 on sale in Coles and decided to give it a shot.
First up is the properties of the product, as outlined on the packaging:
"Intensive 7 days hydrating lotion is powered by L-Bifidus and naturally derived Aloe Vera Extract, specifically chosen for the moisture needs of normal skin. Hydration is so intense you will still feel it for up to seven days after the last application."
I think moisture for 7 days is a pretty big claim, and in my opinion simply one that they just didn't live up to. I needed to apply this moisturiser daily, or at least every second day - certainly not every 7 days. I don't have a problem with this in the slightest because it is my understanding that you need to apply any type of moisturiser every day, it just annoys me that they put such claims on the product.
Moving on, this is a refreshing, non greasy moisturiser that I really like. I like the smell of this (a non offensive fresh fragrance) but most of all I like the way it feels after the initial application as well as the remainder of the day once it has soaked in. It was highly effective (and my skin was quite dry at the time) and long lasting. I also really like the consistency of the product, not too runny and not too thick.
I like the simple green packaging of the product. It comes in a 400ml bottle that is practical and will last a long time.
I'm not sure that there is much more you can say about a body moisturiser, but it is effective and cheap, thus making it a darn good product in my eyes! I give this 9 out of 10.
