St. Ives Naturally Smooth Natural Fruit AHA Complex Body Lotion Review

Hello sweeties,

I took an opinion from a lot of ladies whether shaving skin regularly is safe or not. Then, they guided me to invest in a hydrating body wash and a body lotion. I have my shelf loaded with body washes, but when I was on a hunt for a very hydrating body wash, I came across this. St. Ives is a promising brand, hence I bought it to try. I have been using this over two weeks and I think, now it is the perfect time to review it. So, scroll down for the detailed review.

My Experience with St Ives Naturally Smooth Natural Fruit AHA complex Body Lotion:

The big and giant pump bottles from St Ives are always the ones that rock the shelf as far as body lotions are concerned. It is one of the greatest skincare brands and after using their beloved apricot scrub for long, i have finally decided to splurge a bit on their body lotions too.

This body lotion comes in a super tall, fat, white, curvy bottle that is load with the creamy body lotion. I pretty much was not aware about the quantity but when I actually read it, I was surprised. Such a huge quantity at such a low price. How could I even resist it? This is a super saver offer and anyone would pick it up. The curvy bottle has a pump nozzle, which is the best thing about this lotion as I prefer them over tubes and tubs. A few pumps may be enough to glide this lovely lotion all over your skin.

The consistency of the lotion is kind of runny and hence, it glides very smoothly on my skin. The fragrance is fruity, but I did not find this fruity fragrance very appealing. It smells a bit weird and I like the fact that the smell goes off in a couple of minutes. It smells like a basket of stale fruits. It is not refreshing at all. It takes a minute to massage the lotion and get it completely absorbed in the skin. It does not leave a greasy cast behind, which is why I like this a lot.

It kept my skin hydrated and the moment I applied it, my skin started looking healthy and fresh. Since, they recommend it not to use if you are going to step out in the sun, so I use it only in the night time. I apply it each night after having a bath and wake up with smooth and supple skin every morning.

I have noticed a difference in my skin as it looks hydrated and healthy all the time. Before using this lotion, my skin looked pale and dry. I do not agree to their younger looking skin claim, because my skin looks the same even after 2 weeks. But, I really like this stuff.

Since it is paraben free, it is always a safe choice to go with. This is a moisturizer that you can use before bed to maintain healthy skin. It will be great for summer and winters too, but would not be hydrating enough to dry skin during the breezy months.
