This all natural, chemical-free body lotion smells absolutely delicious. If you would like to smell like a cake – and I mean literally like a real cake, not artificial cake scent with an essence of poison – then this is a lotion for you. The dominant scents of vanilla, hazelnut and cocoa invoke warm, fuzzy feelings and thoughts of snuggling and Christmastime, making it suitable for the coming fall season and cold weather. Oh, and did you know that vanilla is supposedly an aphrodisiac for men? This body cream provides a way sexier alternative to spraying chemical fragrances on yourself which contain toxic ingredients that are detrimental to the immune system and proper hormone function.
As a moisturizer, it serves its purpose and does make the skin soft. Additionally, it consists of ingredients that it claims are anti-aging antioxidants and vitamins.
I have one concern about this product and that would be how well it is safeguarded against growing bacteria and going bad since there is no synthetic ingredient to act as a preservative in the list at all. It does contain Rosemary, Oregano and Thyme leaves which I have heard are natural preservatives for lotions, however may not be as effective as a synthetic preservative in its duration. I would prefer a natural preservative of course, but I would just like to know how long it is good for. It seems like there should be an expiry date on a product like this.
I think it is a very nice lotion, but I would suggest not trying to keep it for too long since it 100% natural and who knows when it expires. It costs about $20 for a 8fl oz tube, so you won’t get too many uses out of it. I would use it for special occasions for only one season, and since it smells so comforting and is apparently an aphrodisiac, it would be a nice accompaniment to dates in the fall 😉
