Review: Sebamed Moisturising Body Lotion

One of the latest body lotions to make it to my rotation of daily moisturisers is Sebamed's Moisturising Body Lotion, and this little gem has been very helpful, particularly on the days where the weather can't seem to make up it's mind!

Sebamed is a company based in Germany, and this brand aims to keep things simple, by making certain that their products are soap and alkali free with a pH of 5.5 (which is meant to be the same pH of healthy skin). The products are meant to help support and sustain the quality of the skin, having been developed in conjunction with dermatologists, pharmacists and hospitals. Their products are meant to be suitable for those with sensitive skin. 

The Moisturising Body Lotion is appropriate for sensitive, normal and oily skin. This contains chamomile extract and allantoin, all meant to soothe and moisturise, while helping to preserve the natural moisture content of the skin. It comes in a white bottle with a flip lid, which makes a reassuring click every time you open it, for the 200 ml version, but there is also a 400 ml version that you can get that comes with a pump. These retail for $9.99 for the 200 ml bottle, and $14.99 for the 400 ml version. The bottles themselves are quite plain, which is fine, because it truly is what's inside that counts!

I was really expecting this to have more of a medicated... something to it, but instead, it smells gently of chamomile and something else that makes me think of fresh sheets, and the formula is an absolute winner. It has a thin to medium consistency, and the lotion itself has a beautifully silky feel to it. It smooths onto the skin wonderfully, taking a couple of minutes to soak in, and when it does, it doesn't leave a tacky feel to the skin at all. 

I'm so pleased with the results of this, and I'll definitely be sad when I run out of it! You can get this from a number of different pharmacies, as well as online through here
