St. Ives Nourish & Sooth Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Lotion Review

Product Purchased by GlossyPolish

Today I am reviewing St. Ives Nourish & Sooth Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Lotion. I always keep a nourishing body lotion handy because sometimes the skin needs some extra moisturization. I never let my skin get dry as it may accentuate stretch marks. I tend to lose or gain weight very quickly so it becomes essential to keep some stretch mark prevention strategies at hand. As a brand, St. Ives is quite trustworthy to me. The products I have used from this brand till date are dermatologically tested, sensitive skin-friendly, paraben free and cruelty-free. This USA based brand sells only a few of their bestseller products in India. There are 4 variants of natural moisture enriched body lotions are available this one being one of them. Let’s move to the review to find how this body lotion works.

Natural/Vegan/Organic?

Moisture providing ingredients are all natural. The composition is vegan but the formula is not completely organic.

My Experience with St. Ives Nourish & Sooth Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Lotion

Packaging- This body lotion comes in a white color matte plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. The dispensing system has a lock mechanism to prevent spillage during traveling. But, the bottle is not actually a travel-friendly one due to its bulkiness. There is 621ml of the product inside so the bulkiness is quite natural. Let’s talk about the aesthetic side of the product. The theme color of the lotion bottle is orange. It has a pictorial representation of the main ingredients on the front side and the backside bears claims. Usage directions, ingredient details etc. I love how clearly every aspect of this product has been represented.

Colour & Texture- The color of this lotion is off-white and it has a medium thick formula. It gets spread very easily and absorbs pretty fast. Though it is a creamy product, it is not greasy. It does not give that uncomfortable feeling of oily film on the skin after application.

Fragrance- Its smell reminds me of rich butter cookies. The smell is light enough and not long-lasting. It would not bother anyone or cause a headache.

Experience- This is a good body lotion to have for someone with dry skin or sensitive skin. I am using this moisturizer on and off as my skin is not very dry currently. This lotion in spite of being both heavy and creamy blends seamlessly into the skin. I do not have to face uncomfortable greasiness. That makes me deduce, it is going to be a perfect winter care for the dry cold days.

I usually apply it at night and go to sleep. This lotion gives a very smooth and supple skin as I wake up. There has been noticeable change in my rough elbows and dry palms. I can easily skip my hand cream on the days I am using this one.
