Hello gorgeous women!
Organix is a brand that most people are familiar with and can trust. I am here with the review of Organix Soothing Tea Tree Peppermint Calming Body Lotion. Read on further for more details:
This Organix Tea Tree Peppermint Lotion claims to heal dry skin, soothes the itchiness that comes hand-in-hand with dry skin, and impart a radiant glow.
$6.99 at Ulta (13 oz).
My Experience with Organix Soothing Tea Tree Peppermint Calming Body Lotion:
As for the first claim of healing dry skin, I think this only does the job if your skin is mildly dry. It shouldn’t be used to treat dermatitis or eczema because it doesn’t give the excess nourishment the skin needs for those conditions. This is the main body lotion I apply right after showering. After applying the lotion, I notice a slightly cool feeling (probably the natural cool feeling you get from mint) calming down my dry skin. It honestly does feel soothing and relaxing in a way. The feeling is very mild though, so you may not even realize it. This body lotion moisturizes my skin pretty deeply because I definitely see an improvement in the condition of my skin.
There are two key ingredients – tea tree oil and peppermint (but I’m sure you could’ve figured that out by reading the name). Tea tree oil is amazing at hydrating dry skin and it has so many benefits. It also contains a little bit of petroleum, which locks in the moisture. Also, peppermint is the active ingredient that soothes your skin.
As for the smell, it is wonderful and natural. You can definitely smell the minty-ness and it’s just absolutely fantastic.
I have pretty mildly dry legs and I’ve had a few small scars from playing around when I was a kid, and this lotion helped to fade away those scars slightly over time (I have been using this for about a few months now and I still have those scars). Also, the fragrance isn’t too overpowering and lasts for a few hours, which can be pretty soothing. I personally love the smell, so I sometimes reapply it just for that. It’s a very mellow kind of smell and definitely isn’t OTT giving me a headache. I’m a little sensitive to the harsh chemicals in most fragrances, but I believe this is hypoallergenic because it didn’t seem to cause any allergic reactions on me. It really calms and soothes your skin.
