I love my body lotions and moisturisers, but I will never spend more than AUD$30 on them. It’s something that’s not necessary, but this one is so Necessaire. I have been honing in minimalism and minimal packaged skincare, it made sense to add this beauty into my skincare collection.
I first saw it gradually dripping in hot on my Instagram feed, because we all know impulse purchases tend to happen on there. I rarely fall for on-trend skincare and will wait until the hype has died down or at least once the majority of beauty bloggers and alike have tried and tested them. It still comes across as a fairly new brand and products are beautiful, and simple in every way. Just look at their Instagram page and website, it speaks for itself and require no introduction.
Treat your body like your face. We believe the body products you use everyday should make a difference in your skin and support your skin health.” – Necessaire.
I picked up the fragrance-free the body lotion and hand cream because I have dry and sensitive skin type. You can get these in scented versions in eucalyptus, bergamot and sandalwood in just about every body care product, but the hand cream is only available in fragrance-free at this time.
The Body Lotion 200ml USD$25
The body lotion in fragrance-free claims to be a fast-absorbing and multi-vitamin moisturiser for skin health. It has been formulated with vitamins A, B3, C, E, omega-6 and omega-9. As well as, three luxe oils: marula, cacay and meadowfoam, which all help to moisturise and soften skin. It is non-irritating and non-sensitising. It has a formula pH level: 4.75-5.75.
The body lotion comes in a brown recyclable box (not pictured) with all the details you can expect to get like ingredients list, name, etc. The product is enclosed in a recyclable, clean, white high-gloss with screw cap aesthetic—white tube with black text. It doesn’t get any better looking than this. It truly stands out amongst my colourful skincare products on my vanity. The texture is light and in the consistency of a lotion as you can expect. It spreads evenly and absorbs almost immediately. It leaves skin instantly soft, smooth and supple. No fragrance, even with the oils included, so if you have sensitive skin like mine, then rest assured it has NO scent! I have had to reapply as needed especially around my knees, as I tend to get drier in these parts and flakes appear. After two applications in a day, I can tell you how it’s helped to calm, soothe but most importantly replenish the dry parts beautifully. The following day, there are no evidence of dry and flakey skin–that has to tell you how good this product is.
This is not an essential product, because there are largely more affordable body lotions and moisturisers in the market, but if you have spare change lying around or in the market to splurge, then I recommend you to check out this brand. For right now, I believe they offer international shipping to selected countries including Australia on the brand website. You can also find them on Nordstrom (ship international) and Sephora US.
