Rudolph Care: Acai Body Lotion

 

Pros:

Organic and free from harmful ingredients. Softens and hydrates skin.

Cons:

Glass bottle with pump: Not handy to travel with.

More:

I will start out by repeating what I wrote in an earlier review on a Rudolph Care product:

I have said it before, and I will say it again: I’m a fan of Rudolph Care. I love that they make products without harmful ingredients or chemicals. I think this is something that the entire beauty industry should focus a lot more on: We apply these products to our biggest absorbing organ (our skin) several times a day. I.e. when using products with perfume, chemicals and what-have-you, we feed our body with toxics, and the consequences is starting to show around the world. Okay, enough of me preaching (I just wish there were more ‘healthy’ products out there).

The Acai Body Lotion is a really nice lotion with a light smell. The bottle has a pump function that easily provides me with the lotion I need. The lotion is easy to apply to skin as it is not too thick. The skin is left soft and hydrated without feeling greasy. The Acai berry should help against signs of ageing.

Rudolph Care claims that the lotion can be used for sensitive, irritated and dry skin. Even for skin with a rash. This is also my experience. Here’s an example: My boyfriend and his sister has a tendency to get red spots/rash on their upper arms (I think they’re called something special, but I don’t remember the word). The Rudolph Care Acai Body Lotion is the only lotion that makes that rash go away.

I like to have one lotion that I just know works and that is good for my skin and my health. This one is my favourite when it comes to that, and you can actually use it for your hair if it’s a bit dry. Just apply a little to the ends…

The Body Shop: Spa Wisdom Japan, Yuzu & Rice Body Milk

 

Pros:

Against animal testing*! Easy to apply with the spray function. Use for summer.

Cons:

A bit thin, doesn’t feel like it goes that much “in depth”.

More:

This body milk smells fresh and is easy to apply, first of all because the bottle has a spray function, second, because it’s a very light cream. I would use this product in the summer when my body needs a light relieving moisturiser that smells fresh and summerly. The smell is a bit too much for me for every-day use.

Another plus is that you support community trade with this product.

*I have to mention that The Body Shop was criticised for selling their products in China, where the government (for reasons I don’t see) requires animal testing. When it came to the media’s attention, Body Shop quickly removed their products from the Chinese shelves (More here and here).

Tromborg: Aroma Therapy Body Lotion Review

 

Pros:

Spa retreat in a jar. Moistures and feels like “luxury”

Cons:

Smells nice, but a bit too strong, comes in a jar, pric

More:

The Aroma Therapy Body Lotion comes in a “jar” and gives the bathroom an atmosphere of luxury and wellness when placed somewhere easy to spot by bathroom visitors. Other than being good for showing off, I’m not a big fan of the fact that you have to stick your fingers into a jar to get the body lotion (or maybe I just need to wash my fingers more or use a “spoon”).

The smell is lovely and leads your thoughts to a spa retreat, but is perhaps a bit too strong for everyday use – no need for perfume when wearing this body lotion.

The lotion is easy to apply and it moistures my skin very well. Further, the lotion is supposed to renew your skin cells and give your skin new energy.

I don’t use this lotion every day, but when I feel like doing a mini spa retreat at home I enjoy applying it all over my body and for the next many hours, I smell like a spa retreat as well.. Win-win.

Body Shop Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion

Pros:

Makes your feet softer than soft and really smells of peppermint.

Cons:

Doesn’t really cool your feet down as promised neither does it take off the heavy sensation in your feet

More:

If you want smooth feet this lotion is a good idea- put it on a thick layer, let it dry, put on socks and go to bed, and next day you will wake up with smooth skin on your feet, it even helps getting rid of some of the very dry skin on your heels if used extensively. It doesn’t however make your feet feel more cool or tired. Its a good lotion for your feet but no miracle cream with extra perks beyond soft skin.
