My experience with St Ives Lotion | Daily Hydrating | Vitamin E lotion with Avocado

Packaging

It comes in a huge pump up kind of bottle that is spill proof and heavy. It is not travel-friendly.

Colour and texture

It is white in color and has a soft, light-weight, non-greasy, non-oily texture

Fragrance

It has a pleasant smell of fresh flowers and greenery. it is something that I definitely like because it is not overpowering as well.

Experience

So, I have always had pretty dry skin on my legs. The kind where, when you scratch, it gets all whitish and flaky. I wanted something not too heavy or too light which moisturizes my skin. I came across the st Ives lotion. I already have the apricot scrub and I use it as a body scrub and it gives me amazing results. So, I purchased the st Ives vitamin E and avocado hydrating body lotion. This is meant to be used on skin which is dry (not extremely dry), and sensitive skin. Coming to the texture, it is light-weight, non-oily, non-greasy and has a very mild, pleasant smell. The smell wears off after 10 minutes of application, no complaints though. This needs to be used very consistently, for at least a week to see some visible results. If you use it for a day and forget it, and expect the product to make your skin soft and moisturized, you will be disappointed to know that this is not the product for you. I personally use it every night, and I saw visible results within a week. It indeed made my skin supple and moisturized. In all, I love the product and totally recommend it, inclusive of the fact that the product has to be used religiously.

Rating: 4/5

Glossypolish verdict: The St. Ives body lotion is a decent lotion that does its job of moisturizing the skin. It helps heal dry skin, but it doesn’t give results that last long. So if you are looking for a body lotion that is light-weight and non-oily, go ahead with this one.
