I received this beautiful crisp white and mint bottle of body lotion from Optiphi and my initial reaction was – oh goodness – I am not a body lotion fan BUT I am an Optiphi fan. So with all that faith I have stored in this wonderful brand I thought let’s give them a try…
Unlike most body lotions which have made me detest them because you apply them on your skin which absorbs the moisture and then the sensation disappears and you’re left feeling a bit greasy or you feel like you have a layer of cream on your skin that just makes you feel sticky. Curve Body Lotion is designed to rather gradually moisturise the skin for the whole day. Just like instead of waking up in the morning and drinking 2 litres of water, we drink a glass or two every few hours, this is the same solution for your skin – Curve allows your skin to sip moisture rather than down it in one go.
Dry, dull and sensitive winter skin from the cold weather conditions are banished and it acts a moisture retainer and reservoir while maintaining a healthy skin barrier against environmental stresses. The lotion is fast absorbing meaning you get out of the shower/bath get dry and apply some lotion by the time you have done one arm and/or leg the other has absorbed the moisture and is already starting to assist your skin in slowly absorbing the moisture rather than over doing it and leaving an excess residue which eventually just wipes off on whatever you wear or touch. It also leaves you smelling clean and expensive. Yes, you read that right, expensive has a smell. Its a smell of luxury that you get from products which have good ingredients.
This product retails for R360 for 250ml from selected Optiphi stockists which is a costly expense compared to most body lotions available, but I believe a complete necessity for skin that suffers from the winter blues.
