Zephorium Soul Tonic Citrine Crystal Nourishing Body Lotion – 250ml (£25.00)
I’m a big fan of Zephorium and as with their carrot and sweet orange face oil, here’s another winner. This time we have a body lotion that ticks all the boxes. Firstly it comes in a heavy, 250ml bright yellow glass bottle, which I love! It’s not designed or practical to take travelling, but it’s very at home sat on a bedside table, like a piece of modern art.
The easy to use pump delivers lots of product. The first thing you’ll notice is that the thick, white cream explodes with fragrance. None of your synthetic, sickly, artificial fragrance I hasten to add, this cream is bursting with zesty pink grapefruit oil, citrus lemon and lime essential oils.
Packed with vitamins A, E, natural polyphenols and phytonutrients for soft and silky skin. The ingredients list is made up of 89% organic ingredients. The base and main ingredients in the bottle are water, organic sunflower seed oil, organic shea butter and organic cocoa seed butter. These main ingredients make the perfect combination for skin moisturising and nourishing.
Then we see natural emulsifier glyceryl stearate, cetearyl alcohol and vegetable based glycerin, Then we find pink grapefruit oil, lemon oil, lime oil, organic olive oil and organic linseed oil. Emollients (skin softeners) in the form of sucrose stearate and sodium stearoly glutamate (derived from coconut oil), then organic aloe vera powder, coconut derived glucoside, alcohol, natural source vitamin E, natural thickener xantham gum and finally naturally derived lactic acid, dehydroacetic acid and benzyl alcohol.
I’ve found some body creams leave my skin feeling sticky, clammy and generally suffocated. Arms and legs can still feel tacky an hour after application. This one is quite different. When you apply the lotion, it absorbs quickly and easily into the skin and keeps you feeling moisturised throughout the day. The zesty lime fragrance disperses within ten minutes or so, not competing with your fragrance of choice.
Suitable for all skin types, use this on dry hands, arms, elbows or anywhere on the body, also great as an aftersun. A luxurious, sophisticated body cream that comes highly recommended and fully Del Brown Appproved.
