Ingredients & About the Product:
I have been using this Garnier body lotion for 3-4 years continuously and have repurchased it quite a lot. I use different variants depending on the season and the one shown in the picture is for very dry skin which suits my dry body skin perfectly for the colder season as in Finland it gets very cold and the winters are usually in sub-zero temperature. There are at least 3-5 variants available, in which aloe is for normal skin which I usually buy in spring/summer, shea butter for extra dry skin which I buy in freezing winters, the mango variant shown here is for dry skin which I buy during autumn/winter, they also have a firming variant which is more gel type which I buy in dry summer. All the variants get absorbed very fast and leave my skin very well moisturized and my skin feels ok even if I skip it without moisturizing for one or two days. I have used body lotions from different drug store brands and I still experiment with other body lotions/butter now and then, but always come back to this one as it is economical, spreads easily, absorbs fast into the skin and leave the skin well moisturized. I have tried the body cocoon one that comes in the orange colored pack in India which I liked during cold weather and I think these variants are not available in India. This goes on my favorite list here, and though it does not have the best-looking ingredient list as there are also a long list of chemicals with mineral oil and silicone and you would now know that I prefer nature-based ingredients, but still I purchase this a lot as this is the one that serves the purpose of a nice body moisturizer without having to spend a lot. I use this all over my body as my body skin is dry and the weather here makes it drier except during proper summer and so, I need a large quantity daily. The Body Shop body butters get finished soon and they are also costly than this and the thicker body butters need some patience to spread all over the body and so I prefer lotions like these. The body oils do not prefer intense moisturization for the colder weather here and I am now trying to make my own body lotion and planning to use it when I succeed. So, for now, I am stuck to this and will let you know if I find a better one that will beat this in all aspect mentioned above.
