I am terrible at moisturising my body, I try to be more vigilant but the truth be told I am one lazy, lazy lady and i'm not all that sold on the texture of most body lotions or body butters.
The last thing I want to do on a cold night or morning after a warm shower is stand there in the scuddy nuddy (nude) is to hop around waiting for it to soak in and dry...sorry for that visual!
Complaints aside the colder weather has really dried out my skin particularly on my shins and fore arms
so I have had to man up and moisturise those areas after showering and before bed so I don't resemble a reptile come the spring...again sorry for the visual.
Now I have tonnes of lotions and potions in my stash but the body lotion I have been reaching for the most has to be Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion which pains me to say as it is pretty pricey at £30...gulp!
So why this over all my other body lotions?
Well not only does this add moisture to to the areas of my body that need it most but it also tightens the skin over regular use resulting in me slapping it on pretty religiously to the wobbly areas - yes thighs i'm talking to you and belly while we are at it you could do with firming up too.
The body lotion itself has a light butter like texture which absorbs into the skin pretty instantaneously and features a fresh, light, botanical scent. The idea behind Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion is that it visibly minimises any signs of ageing or damage caused by sun, cold, heating and air-conditioning.
It of course does what any good body lotion does and smooths out any dry, rough patches and improves the skin tone. Gently removes, not to mention it is refreshing and leaves the skin feeling silky smooth to boot!
It was my heavily pregnant friend who turned me over to Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion she has now had two babies and is stretch mark free which she credits to this lotion, she also used it while on holiday to feed sun drenched skin in place of an after sun.
Pricey yes but a little goes a long way, it is a great multi-purpose moisturiser and most importantly it works.
