What’s awesome in this winter is a hot tub bath and a good skin treatment for dry skin!!! One of the solution for dry skin is to pamper it with a healing body lotion.. In the last article, I reviewed Victoria’s secret body cream, I am well satisfied with it, but I found it to be costly, when used as everyday. So I bought this attractive bottle from Walmart, ST Ives, one of the best brands available in the market, not only for their variety but also for their quality. Whoever used the St Ives apricot scrub, must have surely become a fan of the brand, I did 😀 :D. So it made me buy this product, a body lotion with conjunction with two amazing fruit oils, wow!!
Price: $ 5 at Walmart.

My Experience With The St Ives Intensive Healing Body Lotion With Cranberry Seed And Grape Seed Oil:
I love St Ives products as they always stay true to their claims. Well, I bought this bottle quite a long back but hesitated to open it, as I had few more unused/ unopened body lotions in my dresser. I just happen to start using this from the last two weeks, when my skin started feeling completely dry because of the cold.
This lotion claimed to be a healing and locking the moisture for 24 hours, and did it work? Well yes!! it did. Every time I take a bath, I immediately apply this body lotion all over, it doesn’t give that non-greasy texture after applying. Within 2 seconds of the application, the lotion will be absorbed into the skin, making it super soft. It has a very mild yet awesome fragrance, may be of the cranberry seed’s. A little amount will work on entire hands, the texture of the lotion is flowy type. I don’t know if anyone else does this, but whenever I run out of face scrub, I usually mix some sugar and body lotion and massage my skin, later washing my face with a mild face wash. It works awesome, my skin will be left smooth for entire day, feeling fresh and soft. 🙂
Benefits Of These Two Oils:
Cranberry Seed Oil: It contains one of the highest anti-oxidant, and phytosterols contents, of any of the vegetable / fruit oils, making it an excellent addition to your natural sun protection products where it will help to prevent photodamage. Anti-oxidants that are consumed can reach the skin but, with free radical damage, being the heaviest assault on the skin, and the cause of almost all of the signs of aging, and unhealthy skin, it is beneficial to apply them topically where their protection can go to work immediately.
Grape seed oil: Grapeseed oil contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, both of which are great for stopping acne. The oil also contains linoleic acid, which is great for promoting skin health. It works best for sensitive skin.
