I'm a HUGE fan of Shea Moisture body scrubs and hair products, but up until a few days ago, I'd never tried any of their lotions. My skin is extremely dry and no matter how much water I intake, dry skin seems to be a persistent issue for me.
Normally, I have to mix my lotion with shea butter or an oil gel just to tackle the dry skin and keep the ash at bay. Since Shea Moisture products haven't let me down before, I figured I'd give the lotion a try!
The Lavender and Wild Orchid Body Lotion contains 30% certified organic shea butter, jojoba oil, cocoa butter, olive oil and coconut oil. Lavender essential oil and orchid extract give the lotion its mild scent. The Wild Orchid extract and Shea Butter work to soften and moisturize your skin.This calming lotion soothes and balances all skin types.There are no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, gluten, artificial colors or synthetic fragrances.
I decided to use Shea Moisture Lavender and Wild Orchid Body Lotion fresh out the shower and was immediately smitten with the fresh fragrance. The consistency is really thick (so much so that I removed the lid) so a small amount goes a very long way.
Thankfully, the lotion isn't greasy, but still managed to quench my thirsty, dry skin. The moisturizing benefits last all day and the lovely scent stays with you for hours! This is certainly a lotion I will keep in heavy rotation.
I have to say that Shea Moisture has done it again! Their Lavender and Wild Orchid Body Lotion gave me everything I need in a body moisturizer. Now that this lotion is part of my beauty arsenal, I'm an even happier, loyal fan of the brand.
Pros: Great scent, very moisturizing, paraben-free!
Buy Again: Yes!
Packaging: 4- Your typical plastic flip top bottle; doesn't work so well with the thickness of this lotion, but I found it a minor issue.
Overall: 5 Blings
