Tonight I thought I'd review my newest product from Love Your Skin. I've tried facial skincare from Love Your Skin before when the brand was first launched and have been eagr to try something from their body line ever since.
Love Your Skin
Collagen Body Moisturising Gel
|Love Your Skin Collagen Body Moisturising Gel|
The Love Your Skin Collagen Body Moisturising Gel is unlike any body product I've tried before. First off it contains Evening Primrose and Aloe Vera making it smell incredible and the scent lingers on your skin for a couple of hours after. It can be used alone or underneath a more intense moisturiser to boost the results you'll get from it as it contains collagen proteins which are great for your skin. They bind moisture to the surface of the skin which can help to plump up the skin, making it look and feel smoother and more youthful. I've been using this twice a day all over my body (except on my upper arms as I've been trying out a new product that I'll blog about soon...) since I came back from my holiday and enjoyed the results, particularly when paired with my Good Things Ultra Rich Body Butter every other evening.
The texture and feel when you apply it is very much like antiseptic hand gel. It's a strange feeling that I found took me a few applications to get used to, I must admit. I love how light it is and really refreshing to use. This would be a perfect moisturiser to use on holiday and in the summer months as it is very cooling. Since it contains Aloe Vera, it would also be very soothing on sun burnt skin. It is water based so it is hydrating and moisturising on the skin but when I say moisturising it is not in the same way that a body cream or lotion moisturises the skin, as it doesn't sit on the skin and take a while to sink in; it leaves my skin feeling the way it usually does a couple of hours after using a regular body lotion, if that makes sense. It is a great quick fix to hydrate your skin as it dries almost immediately, is non sticky and easy to use with the pump action bottle, leaving you with skin that feels perfected, as though your skin is naturally like that, perhaps from regular use of body moisturiser. It can also be used on the face too so if you're looking for a multi purpose product then this is a great choice. Ooh and you can share this with your man too as it is unisex and water based products rather than creams are the best way to moisturise hairy skin.
Love Your Skin is available to buy direct from their website here with free delivery on all orders over £50. This body moisturiser is priced at £16.99 for a 200ml bottle and £34.99 for a 500ml bottle.
