I've been really into travel kits lately. It's just so much easier when you're always on the road. Recently, I got my hands on Onesta's travel-size amenity kit. Onesta is generally known for their haircare products but what really caught my attention is the Onesta Moisturizing Hand & Body Lotion.

I don't believe the Onesta Moisturizing Hand & Body lotion is sold as a full product so you may have to get the whole package. In this case, considering the great shampoos, it's not a bad deal. Onesta is free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, propylene glycol, DEA, TEA, colors, dyes and animal ingredients.

What really attracted me to the lotion is that it's full of all the foods I love: avocado, carrot, cucumber and ginseng. There's also linden tree extract, which is essentially a blend of botanicals that help maximize moisturization. The added shea butter deeply helps the lotion penetrate and soothes. I love the avocado, which has a history of healing and also absorbs deep into the tissue. The cucumber extract contains anti-inflammatory properties and, as a benefit, is great for tired looking skin as it works as a tightening agent. Ginseng, one of my favorite ingredients (I also take it as a daily supplement) promotes cell regeneration and improve the skin's resistance. Oh, I shouldn't also forget the green tea extract, Vitamin E, Vitamin A and sweet almond oil, all of which also joined this party of skin love and hydration. And don't worry. The emulsifying wax NF is vegetable based (that "NF" threw me off a bit). It's a great scent and feels natural on the body. But I think the benefits is what will truly make you a fan.
