NIVEA RICH NOURISHING BODY LOTION What It Says It Does: “This blend of almond oil and intensely nourishing ingredients restores and replenishes moisture to prevent further moisture loss.” What It Actually Does: Exactly that. Hydrates, moisturises and locks in suppleness for 24 hours. This body lotion is a cult-classic for a reason. The formula falls on the thicker side, so is ideal for applying in the evenings before bed for smooth, silky and hydrated skin.
BY TERRY BAUME DE ROSE BODY CREAM What It Says It Does: “By harnessing the power of black rose and pastel rose extracts, this conditioning cream softens, smooths and promotes suppleness.” What It Actually Does: Smoothing? Yes. Hydrating? Hmmm not as much as I expected. This body cream would be best suited to someone looking for suppleness and not so much someone who is suffering from dry, itchy skin.
JERGENS SOFTENING VANILLA MOISTURISER What It Says It Does: “The formula will lock in long-lasting hydration with the moisturising power of proven essential ingredients to give you visibly beautiful skin.” What It Actually Does: Moisturises the skin sans the greasy feeling. This moisturiser is ideal for when your skin is feeling particularly dry and flaky as it penetrates deeply to ensure you wake up with smoother, more radiant looking skin.
