Jergens Cocoa Butter: boots (£5.10)*
I've honestly never used a body butter, body cream or anything like that. Moisturising my body feels like a silly useless step, and I generally can't be bothered to stand around waiting for it to dry and sink in. My skin isn't very dry so I just don't see the point, In all honesty to me it seems like one of those unnecessary beauty chores people do for no real reason. Although, I have to admit since coming back from my holidays my skin has become a little dry and flakey from the sun and my peeling tan. So
because of this I thought I'd actually try one for a change. Que me rummaging through my sample boxes!
The Jergens Cocoa Butter was the first one I found and I thought it would be a good place to start. I found the Cocoa Butter very moisturising without being sticky or tacky. My skin feels soft and hydrated without being over saturated. I felt the cream was very thick but absorbed quickly so I didn't have to hang around in my undies waiting for it to dry. I adored the scent, really sweet and cocoa-y with a touch of vanilla which slightly lingers on the skin. It's also 96% natural and (to the best of my knowledge) cruelty free.
I have to admit I did like the product but overall felt body cream is just not really that essential step and won't be part of my routine. I've never used it religiously before and seen no negative effects so far! But if you do have dry skin I would recommend this as it did sort my dry knee's and elbows out vey quickly!
