I hope by now everyone appreciates how gradually we've been introducing each product for a proper skincare routine. We're taking baby steps and trying of course to find multipurpose products to ease everyone's lives. A proper moisturizer is essential for the body as well. After we covered the needs of the face moisturizer and the reasons behind it, we're bringing up next a great option for a body moisturizer.
First, let's talk about the convenience of the bottle. I find that items with a pump, disperse the right amount of product and helps control the messiness. While it might not be the easiest to travel with, it can definitely have a permanent spot on the dresser, always ready to moisturize. Beware that towards the end of the product, there will be residue left at the bottom that the pump won't be able to disperse. Try the classic trick of placing it upside down so it's ready to use.
It's a lightweight lotion, which means it won't take long for the skin to absorb it. For extra dry skin, it might be necessary to use a bit more product but it'll still get the job done. It's ideal for summertime; if exposed to the sun, its cooling ingredients will work fast to restore the skin's temperature. It'll soothe redness and any particular rough spots such as elbows, knuckles and knees.
Amongst some of its ingredients, we'd like to mention soy protein and jojoba oil. Soy protein is rich in linoleic acid which moisturizes and soothes the skin. For someone with a soy allergy, I'd suggest staying away from this item. Jojoba oil will help soften, moisturize, and protect the skin and its layers. There is fragrance added, as with almost all body lotions. For those who aren't fans of added fragrance, there are tons of other options on the market.
So far, we've been loving the Jack Black products we've brought to you. Is there another body moisturizer we should have our EQ men try? Leave a comment below and let us know.
- Girls, feel free to buy this. It'll work wonders for you and the price is great for the amount of product.
