If yes, then this post is for you !
I use a moisturising body lotion throughout the year and the one that works for my oily face does not work for my body. This brand was introduced to me by a friend and here is my honest review of ST. D’VENCE Winter Edition Body Lotion with Tea Tree Oil and Shea Butter for Dry Skin .
PRICE – INR 319/- for 300 ml , I got it from Amazon.in
I really like the translucent plastic body and the sturdy, rounded heavy bottomed pump spray bottle , it sits easy on my bathroom shelf and the pump works smoothly.
WHAT IS GREAT ABOUT THE ST. D’VENCE Winter Edition Body Lotion with Tea Tree Oil and Shea Butter for Dry Skin
1.No parabens, no mineral oils, no sulphates, peg & pg free, hypoallergenic so it is suitable to even sensitive skin
2.Pure Australian tea tree oil, French Shea butter, Italian olive oil, vitamin A, B & E are some key ingredients which work well for me though I feel the concentrations are very low.
3.It has a mild fresh and minty fragrance of Tea tree that lingers for about 10 minutes.
4.It is slightly runny and is absorbed quite fast and does not leave the skin sticky
5.St. D’Vence Winter Body lotion helps relieve dry and itching skin. I let my Mother-in- Law try this for her dry and itchy legs and she felt immediate soothing action – that gave me some brownie points for being a good Daughter-in-Law😉!!
6.It’s formulated & designed by St. D’vencé in London keeping in mind the requirements of Indian skin.
7.Very affordable , one bottle lasts more than one month easily even after using once daily all over.
WHAT IS NOT SO GREAT ABOUT ST. D’VENCE Winter Edition Body Lotion with Tea Tree Oil and Shea Butter for Dry Skin
1. Even though it says it is formulated for dry skin and winter season, my skin specially my hands feel dry within 2 hours of application in warm weather ( I use it at bedtime and sleep in A.C.) Though used during the day in normal temperature ( 25 degrees Celsius ) I felt it worked well. So I think it is suitable for normal to moderately dry skin
2. It claims to retain skin glow, delay ageing but I did not find any change in the skin of my arms in terms of skin glow or smoothness etc. or any effect on tanning (though it does not claim any protection from darkening).
I do not find it deeply moisturizing but I don’t mind reapplying it or maybe I will try the ST. D’VENCE Autumn Edition Body Lotion with Argan Oil and Avocado Butter for Very Dry Skin next, so stay tuned to this space !
