This body lotion was sent to me for the purpose of review by Bzz Agent, however as always my thoughts and opinions are my own.
Did you know there were years of my life where I didn’t really think of body lotion. If I noticed my skin was dry I would add some but that was it. These days hand and body lotion are in constant demand. Not only is the sun drying my skin as I work in the garden or go on a walk, but my hands have coopted any body lotion in the house to try and mitigate the effects of too much hand sanitizer.
I’ve just gotten into the habit of using the hand sanitizer anytime I go out, sometimes even multiple times and my skin can’t handle it with out a back up. It has thrown hand and body lotion from a category I barely think about, to a much needed necessity.
This Bodylab Collagen Complex + Body lotion is available at Target ($7.99) For me that is an added bonus. Target is right next to my grocery store and tends to be one of the few places I shop in person so if I run out it is easy to repurchase on the fly. Providing I like it of course. According to the product page, this body lotion…
Promotes Skin Suppleness, is Nourishing & Rejuvenating, has an Innovative Moisture Rich Formula, is Cruelty free, Clean beauty and Dermatologically tested.
It also has Vitamin e which my skin adores. The body lotion looks like most body lotions. It is your standard white cream. It does absorb really fast though which I like as I am often putting body lotion on and then moving into something else. Sometimes that is getting dressed after a shower or simply moving on post hand sanitizer. I really like that it is so fast absorbing. And the moisture it provides is nice as well. I found it really hydrated my skin.
The scent I was sent s called Floral Honey. I love the scent of honey. Florals I can be on the fence about. This scent doesn’t smell like honey. It has a sweet note and the florals have a slightly cirtusy note. It is a rather nice scent, I’m just not sure it is appropriately named. To be honest, it smells exactly like the foaming hand wash that my favorite movie theater when I was a teenager used. So for me it is a bit nostalgic.
The scent is a bit strong. It fades after a few minutes but if you are sensitive to scent, this might not be the product for you. I love the way it hydrates and feels on my skin and I kind of enjoy the scent. I also love that it is both paraben and dye free and good for all skin types. It means that I can use it and set it out where everyone else can to. The pump top makes it easy to use and for hands and arms I generally find that one pump is all that is needed.
Is it my favorite body lotion? No. But it is a good one, offered at a reasonable price that I could easily pick up when out shopping and know that it would work and that it can easily be used by anyone coming into my home. I would probably look for a more neutral or at least less floral scent, mostly so that a wider range of people could enjoy this, but I would pick up this Bodylab Collagen Complex Body Lotion again.
