OUT: Alverde – Ultra Sensitive Koeroerlotion
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:
I did like this body lotion though I wasn’t blown away. It did moisturise my skin, but I feel I had better products in the past. I find the packaging very handy with the pump. The lotion 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. Overall a good product for a reasonable price.

IN: Organic Surge – Super Rich Body Butter (£15.75/150ml)
What Organic Surge says:
This sumptuous, Super Rich Body Butter simply melts into your skin. The luxurious formula is enriched with skin-conditioning aloe vera and pure plant extracts, and is packed with ultra-moisturising cocoa and shea butters. Infused with nourishing, delicately fragrant nourishing lavender and geranium essential oils.
What I say:
My first impression is that this body butter has a lot thicker consistency than the ones I’ve tried in the past. Therefore it takes a bit more effort to spread it on the skin. It smells of lavender as expected.
