What I say:
When I bought this body lotion I was not sure if I would get along with the scent of it, as it does smell quite sweet. I have to say though, that I started absolutely loving it. I didn’t see that coming. 😉 The product sinks in quickly but still leaves the skin feeling moisturised. The ingredients list reads okay, but a product like the Love The Planet Body Butter or the Kivvi Body Marmelade are definitely better. I would consider buying this body lotion again.

What Alverde says:
Vegetable glycerin provides the skin with lasting moisture. The composition with jojoba oil, evening primrose oil and shea butter nourishes and protects the skin. The body lotion is free of essential oils and herbal extracts. It was developed together with the German Allergy and Asthma Association.
What I say:
Because I have very dry skin I thought it might be worth trying a body lotion that is specialised on that problem. I bought this Alverde body lotion while I was in Germany over christmas as they are very affordable products, yet I made good experiences with them. It does’t have a very distinct smell to it, which I am totally okay with. The consistency reminds me a bit more of a body milk than a body lotion though.
