Burt’s Bees Aloe & Buttermilk body lotion is a light lotion, designed for sensitive skin. It has 99.41% natural ingredients and is paraben and pthalate free.
I have to admit, I am the worst at using body lotion, I almost always forget or if I don’t I’m too lazy to put it on. Saying that, the only time I do only apply lotion is when I’m tanning in order to avoid the patchiness on the elbows and knees.
I received this as part of a gift set and decided to test it out on my last fake tanning adventure. The smell is quite floral for a natural product, it’s not unpleasant, but I’m not entirely sure if I like it. I think the fragrance is definitely not for everyone.
I find the bottle shape quite restrictive in the sense that it doesnt squeeze easily so your natural reaction is to shake the bottle to get the product out and as it is a lot runnier than it looks so you do have to be careful you don’t apply too much, but it’s very light and is absorbed quite easily. It also leaves my skin extremely soft and smooth for hours, which I loved and doesn’t turn your fake tan green which is another big plus!
I also like the fact it is a natural product, as I know what I’m applying to my skin is natural and isn’t full of chemicals.
Overall I really like this body lotion, the best bit is that it it absorbs very quickly and leaves my skin feeling silky soft and smooth all day. The product does have a distinctive fragrance which I’m not a 100% on but considering it’s not overly strong and I don’t use it that often I can cope with it.
