Healthy input makes for healthy output. Your skin is continuously exposed to both visible and invisible damage. By keeping your skin smooth and nourished, you provide your body with extra levels of protection. Smooth skin looks good and treats you well.

How can you get smooth skin?
Step 1: Maintain proper hydration levels. Thirsty? Skip the sugary soft drinks, and reach for water instead.
Step 2: Enter into the world of body lotion.

Desert Essence Organics hand & body lotion products are made with care. They contain “no parabens, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, phthalates, artificial fragrances or colors, silicones, EDTA, glycol or petroleum-based ingredients.” With 100% vegan ingredients, Desert Essence lotions are also wheat and gluten free. Desert Essence also states that their Bulgarian lavender species “is known throughout Eastern Europe to have a healing effect on the skin, as well as an ability to soothe the senses.” Now to test it out.

Testing, testing: Desert Essence Organics Bulgarian lavender hand & body lotion

Absorbability
This pure, white lotion is thick yet easily to blend. Within seconds the lotion is absorbed into the skin. A second layer leaves no white residue behind. Important to note, though, is a slight tendency for a greasy feel if too much is applied. For best results apply layers in smaller amounts, and then repeat as necessary.

Scent
Some brands of lotion have unpleasant odors. Desert Essence Organics does not. The Bulgarian lavender is perfect, neither too acrid nor too sweet smelling for daily use. True to its word, this species does have a calming effect on the senses.

Healing effectiveness
Since benefits are not immediate, take time to rest. A quick check in the morning reveals hands that are noticeably softer, smoother and healthier. Rough cracks and reddened surfaces have disappeared. Lavender essential oil is a powerful and effective gift from nature.

The verdict?
A for absorbability
A+ for scent
A+ for healing

This lotion is highly recommended to anyone who suffers from sore, damaged or dry skin.
