I am not usually a person who bothers much with body care mainly because the humid weather in Singapore does not dry out my skin as much. Even though I work and sleep in air-conditioned room everyday, I am not someone who lather on body care products often because I dislike the sticky, uncomfortable feeling of applying. However, having said that, I still using body care products and today I would like to share some of the body care products that I use.
Just to share my personal preference on choices of body care products. I always prefer something that is light in texture with mild scent. Not only will I not have the uncomfortable sticky feeling, I like having something lightly scented on my body for that 'fresh out of shower' smell.
Below are the body care products that I am currently using:-
1) DNA Miracles Natural Hydrating Baby Lotion
2) Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia Body Cream
3) Kiehl's Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion
DNA Miracles Natural Hydrating Baby Lotion
Yes, I know this body lotion is for babies but what is stopping adults from using them? NOTHING, haha. I have always like baby lotions because they are usually the lightest in texture with the gentlest ingredients that can be applied on babies' skin. I have to say I reach out for this lotion more often than the other 2 because of the light texture. It is easily absorbed into my skin, providing the hydration I required on dry areas. There was once I had slight rashes on my arms after CNY spring cleaning and DNA Miracles Natural Hydrating Baby Lotion helps to sooth my skin after application. The combination of glycerin, willow herb flower / leaf/ steam extract, pathenol, aloe leaf juice and sodium hyaluronate make this product a wonderful body lotion for everyday application. With a mild sweet scent, DNA Miracles Natural Hydrating Baby Lotion does make me feel a child!
Available on www.allyourfamilyneeds.sg. Retailing at $24.50 for 190g of product.
Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia Body Cream
I bought this body cream plainly because I am a fan of Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia Cologne and it would be a great item for me to lay my scent when I would like my scent to stay longer. Being a body cream, Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia Body Cream comes in a luxurious glass pot and you scoop out the cream using your fingers (that's me) or a spatula. Despite me buying this previously to layer my scent, I ended up using this product at night, just before bed. I like how the scent relaxes me after long, stressful hours in offices. The texture is creamer than lotion and does makes me feel there is a thin layer of cream on the surface of the skin.
This product is available over Jo Malone boutiques in Singapore but I previously purchased mine over Saks Fifth Avenue at USD 75 for 5.9 oz (approx 167g) of product.
Kiehl's Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion
Ok, I have to say this. Kiehl's Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion is the product that I have hardly used. Despite being named as 'body lotion', the texture is the thickest among the 3 making me feel very sticky after application. I guess it will worked well for individuals with badly chapped skin. The scent is also the strongest among the 3, which is the reason why I touches it the least now. The key ingredient in Kiehl's Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion is Argan Oil and Argan leaf extract which is a very popular ingredient in a lot of products to provide hydration.
Available over Kiehl's counters in Singapore, it was previously retailing at $100 (I'm not sure if there are price changes lately) for 475ml of product.
