I am not a big body lotion fan, I find whenever I apply it I get greasy and putting on my clothes is difficult and they get clingy. I normally apply my body lotions at night, but when I take a shower first thing in the morning that sort of defeats the purpose. For the last few weeks I have been applying Liz Earle’s Energising Body Lotion daily after my shower and I have to say I really like it!
It has a lovely light texture to it, but it isn’t too runny which I like. I can apply this all over my body in minutes, whereas thicker lotions that I have used like the Liz Earle Superskin Body Cream take a little longer to work into the skin.
The citrus smell of this really wakes me up a bit in the morning, I find I can actually talk to people without snapping sometimes! Although that could be to do with the lighter mornings (thank goodness).
As I said before, I hate that greasy, clingy feeling I get when I apply body lotion in the morning but I find that this sinks in really well and I have no issues with pulling up skinny jeans or twisting long sleeved tops any more. The only downside with that is that sometimes it just isn’t moisturising enough and I still get a bit of a dry itch on the backs of my arms.
This body lotion is great for firming and toning, I have really noticed a difference in my hip and thigh area and hopefully by summer I might have the confidence to wear a bikini! As this is so light weight it is easy to massage into the skin to help me lessen the appearance of my stretch marks and cellulite.
Liz Earle Energising Body Lotion retails at £16.50 for a 150ml tube or £4.75 for a 30ml tube. Perfect for travelling!
