If you hate the feeling of putting your clothes on sticky just-moisturized skin, then this body lotion is for you.
Although I love all of the luxurious body butters and balms, sometimes (especially in the mornings!) I just want a lotion that’s easy to apply and that doesn’t require waiting for ages in the bathroom before being able to put clothes back on. Plus, the feeling of pulling pants over greasy skin is just repulsive.
The Avril face & body cream is a great organic and affordable solution. It has a gel-cream texture that melts into the skin and penetrates quickly without leaving any residue. You can get dressed immediately after applying it which is the whole point of this post.
It includes a mix of humectants and occlusives (aloe vera, glycerin and shea butter) that work nicely to moisturize the body. (I haven’t used this on my face so I can only speak for the body benefits.) Also, it’s subtly scented which I like because some fragrances can be overpowering when applied all over the body. This particular fragrance reminds me of hard candy for some reason!
To me, this a good everyday body lotion. I believe it will suit people with normal to dry skin but I don’t think it’s nourishing enough for people with very dry skin.
It retails for 8€/200ml.
