I don’t know about you but the idea of moisturising my skin after a shower sounds like the most tedious, time consuming, uncomfortable thing to do. When I step out of the shower the last thing I want to do is stand around butt-nekkid, freezing my nips off in order to lotion myself. Consequently this has left me with really dry, ashy, scaly skin, so attractive, I know…
Being the ultimate lazy girl, when I saw this product that allows you to moisturise while taking a shower I knew I had to have it. I bought a massive 250ml bottle from Boots for £3.75.
So last night I stepped into my shower and after washing my body with my current fave body wash (Dove Cream Oil Nourishing Body Wash) I squeezed some of this product into my palms and rubbed it all over my body and rinsed off, all within 30 seconds. The smell of this product is amazing, it has the classic cocoa butter smell but with a hint of vanilla or is it floral…I don’t know, either way it smells amazing. My shower became a bit slippery so be careful if you’re using this in a bathtub.
When I rinsed this off I noticed my skin was sooo soft and moisturised, just like I had spent 5 minutes massaging product into my skin. Furthermore when I stepped outside the shower I think the product somehow insulated me making it feel warmer! The moisturiser didn’t rub off onto my towel but I made sure to pat my skin dry.
I’m a night showerer so this product kept my skin supple overnight. It’s perfect to use when I’m in a rush and my skin isn’t going to be exposed to the elements. If I’m wearing shorts/short sleeves the day after then I would probably apply a moisturiser again before stepping outside, just because I have an irrational fear of ashy skin haha!
