A lotion for the face? Doesn’t that mean a moisturiser though?

REVIEW

9D30AF77-4EA9-42CB-804B-8D4C199FB0F5

The bottle, similarly to their other products have a nice packaging. So generally, it feels really nice to touch and see.

The ingredients list also looks amazing! There were some names which raised some eyebrows for me like- HYDROXYETHYL UREA (since it has the word Urea in it). It’s actually a good ingredient that helps with hydration and skin replenishing. CETEARYL ALCOHOL is also good as it is a fatty alcohol that helps with skin texture. The product has more than 20 plant extracts as well which is honestly amazing.

The lotion feels really smooth, lightweight, and smells nice. It’s a white colour lotion when first pumped up but it dries transparent. Similar to their other products, this one also smells quite similar. The product spreads really easy onto to skin and it’s really quick to use as there is a pump.

After using it, my skin feels really soft and hydrated. I really enjoy using the product right after toning because it adds extra hydration to my skin as well. I don’t really notice any brightening (despite the product having NIACINAMIDE) effects, to be honest,; however, it is still an extremely good ingredient for the skin!

VERDICT: BUY! (8/10)

It would seem that this product is kinda a serum. I honestly really like using it as a serum despite the higher price, I find that it really provides an extra moisture punch to my skincare routine.

Have you heard of a recharging lotion? Would you consider getting one? Let me know!
