Thoughts: This oil free lotion caught my eye, not only for the pretty packaging, but for the good for your skin ingredients. The first two ingredients are water and aloe! What?! I’m in! The ingredient list is pretty short (take away the descriptives) which is commendable in my eyes.
This creamy, gel lotion feels lightweight on the skin, and I loved how effortlessly it spread. It sinks in quickly but leaves the slightest bit of sticky residue. This doesn’t bother me though. It makes for a great makeup base because of that! It feels cooling and hydrating- a definite pick me up for your skin.
This would be a great oil balancing moisturizer for those with oily skin. For me, I crave a little more moisture, but I will save this when I’m in need of something lightweight with healing properties. This was great for my skin in the summer when my skin was chapped from the sun. Now with the upcoming winter, I will break this out when my skin is in need of some healing from the cold air.
