I’m a big Nurture My Body fan. I love their frothy nourishing eye cream, and their amazingly pure and lavish shampoo. So I was really excited when I received a nice sized sample of their Floral Hand and Body Lotion ($31) in the mail. It’s made with Turkish neroli and jasmine absolute, and the scent is truly divine. I don’t really like anything perfumey, but this floral scent is so lush and natural, I almost wish it would linger longer.

The formula also uses Turkish rose, which is known for its ability to moisturize and hydrate. And the jasmine is used for its ability to improve the skin's elasticity and restore energy. The lotion itself has a nice rich consistency, without being too thick. It absorbs into your skin, leaving it feeling moisturized but not greasy.

High up on the ingredients list is safflower, avocado, and wheat germ oil - all known for their abilities to hydrate the skin. After the oils, you’ll find a whole host of wonderfully healing ingredients. There’s slippery elm, which was traditionally used by Native Americans for skin inflammation. There’s comfrey root, which contains allantoin, a compound that is said to accelerate the healing of tissue and the closing of wounds when applied to skin. One of my favorite skin soothers, aloe vera is in there. And sea buckthorn, which contains high levels of nutrients essential for the metabolism of skin cells, and is often used to combat wrinkles and dryness.

And that’s just to name a few! So if you’re looking for a new body lotion that is brimming with nourishing botanicals and all natural ingredients, this is a fantastic choice.
