Review time! About a week and a half ago, @jenessence.net_ sent me a bottle of their Nourish & Refine Natural Body Lotion free of charge in exchange for an honest review, so here we go ❤
This body lotion, the star ingredients of which are rose flower oil, tea tree leaf oil, and neroli oil, is aimed to combat dry, dull skin, and is not only vegan-friendly and cruelty-free, but contains 98% naturally-derived ingredients, and leaves out sulfates, dyes, artificial fragrances, and parabens 🐇💐💗 For a full list of all the ingredients, check the photos.
Now, this is a natural body lotion that contains some strongly scented oils, and when I say strong, I mean STRONG, so even though artificial fragrance is omitted, if you prefer unscented products or are sensitive to smells in any way, this lotion is not for you. Having said that, I've found the scent of this lotion actually behaves sort of like a perfume: when you first apply it, or smell it directly, it can be quite overwhelming, but once it's absorbed into your skin and mixes with your own body chemistry, the scent changes slightly, and it becomes sweeter, if that makes sense. The first time I tried the lotion, all I could smell was a strong floral perfume-like scent, but after waiting a bit after application, I was able to pick out and discern the rose scent from the neroli, etc. Kind of a cool effect, actually.
As you can see in the photos, this body lotion is truly a lotion, as opposed to a body butter or similar products. It's quite creamy, and though it's on the thicker side as far as lotions go, it spreads beautifully, so a little actually goes quite a long way; one pump is enough to cover at least both arms. It does take a little massaging to get the skin to full absorb the product, which means it might feel like there's a film on your skin for a few minutes immediately after application, but once absorbed this feeling goes away and my skin is left velvety soft and supple 🥰 I especially love using this on my super dry feet at night under a pair of socks. Come morning it's like my feet have been reborn👌
If you suffer from dry skin like me, I say check out this lotion! They carry other products, too!
