I am very picky when it comes to body lotion. I want it to dry extremely fast and leave my skin feeling immediately softer. I’ve found some great ones over the years, and I was excited to find another great, inexpensive pick recently: the Simple Truth Lavender Eucalyptus Body Lotion. This product can be purchased from Kroger supermarkets for only $6.
It’s odd thinking about getting body lotion from a grocery store, especially since this is a Kroger exclusive, but as I was browsing, I saw this and thought I’d give it a try. First, the scent is amazing. You can really smell the lavender and eucalyptus and they do not smell overly artificial, which is impressive for such an inexpensive lotion. The scent does fade throughout the day, but it will last for a few hours. Honestly, I’ve been using this one mostly at night though because the scent is so relaxing that it seems perfect for an evening routine.
As I mentioned earlier, I need lotions to dry quickly. I hate when I feel sticky or if I have streaks of white lotion that refuses to absorb. This one has a very thin formula that dries clear and immediately. This is definitely a plus in my book! Now, I will admit that the formula isn’t super moisturizing, so it’s best for people who do not have super dry skin. It moisturizes a bit but is better for maintaining average skin than fixing damaged or cracked skin. It does make my skin feel softer since I’m not currently experiencing very dry skin, but I’m not sure if I’ll use it in the winter.
Overall, I’ve been really impressed by this product. It smells great, dries quickly, and provides a thin layer of moisture that is nice for a daily evening lotion.
Do you have an inexpensive lotion you can’t live without? Please, let me know in the comment section.
