Have Dry Skin? This $10 Body Lotion Will Fix That

I love the glowy, tanned look of coming back from a warm weather vacation, but the dry, scaly, peeling skin? Not so much. I had the most magical getaway in Hawaii last month, but all that sun wreaked havoc on my skin that was already pretty dry after months of cold winter weather.

I tried all my usual body lotions and oils to restore moisture and smoothness, but nothing was working. Finally, I decided to try Shea Moisture’s Coconut Oil & Organic Shea Butter Hydrating Body Lotion which I’d had sitting on my bathroom shelf for months. Turns out, I should’ve cracked this goodness open from the start.

Because scent is important to me when it comes to body lotion, I’ll start there. It. Smells. Incredible. It’s not super strong or overpowering, but it leaves a slightly sweet, pleasant fragrance that lingers on the skin all day long. I love it.

More importantly, though, this lotion offers serious hydration. As I mentioned, I was using it on pretty sunburned/tanned skin and with just application in the morning, my parched skin was not only soft, but also nourished and moisturized.

Unlike lots of other body lotions that contain nasty chemicals, this lotion is made with natural and certified organic ingredients. I’m talking 100% Coconut Oil, Organic Shea Butter and Murumuru Butter. You’d think it’d be greasy with all those hydrating ingredients, but it’s not at all. It goes on smooth, dries quickly and leaves your skin super moisturized for hours.

Whether your skin is naturally dry or you’ve spent a bit too much time in the sun, you need this lotion in your life. It’s the best.
