I moisturize at least once a day, so lotion is a pretty important part of my beauty regimen. I’ve been using and loving Skin’s Apricot Mango Eye Cream for while now, and I was understandably excited to give Skin’s Grapefruit Pom Body Lotion a try.

Ingredients (provided at carenonline.com)- “Sweet almond oil*, jojoba oil*, virgin coconut oil*, pomegranate seed oil*, cocoa butter*, glycerin, grapefruit essential oil*, vegetable emulsifying wax, distilled water, vitamin E oil, grapefruit seed extract.

*Certified organic”

The product received a hazard score of one on theCosmetic Safety Database. Vitamin E oil and Glycerin are the only two ingredients with a hazard score of two. The rest are a one or a zero. This products is not linked to cancer, reproductive/developmental toxicity, or allergies/immunotoxicity.

Product Description (also provided at carenonline.com)- “Ahhh! The invigorating smell of grapefruit and the extra special healing properties of pomegranate combine in this wonderfully moisturizing lotion. Sweet almond oil, loaded with vitamins to protect, nourish, soothe and soften, coconut oil to form a protective layer which helps to retain moisture, cocoa butter which has been used for many years to lessen the appearance of stretch marks and scars and vitamin E oil, all enhance this yummy lotion. A true Caren favorite!”

Price-It’s $16.95 for an 8 ounce bottle, but you can also get a try me! size (that’s approximately one ounce) for $3.95 from carenonline.com (which is what I did).

Performance– I quickly discovered that this product was perfect for moisturizing my neck and chest, which are two of the most sensitive areas other than my face that I apply lotion. Grapefruit Pom lotion effectively moisturized my neck and chest without making me feel greasy or causing a breakout, which is quite an achievement. I tried it on the rest of my body as well, but I typically prefer richer moisturizers for my arms, legs and tummy.

Scent– The scent of this lotion is mostly grapefruit and very little pom, but I’m not complaining or anything. I think it smells tasty! As a general rule, I’d much rather use a product that has a light, citrus scent than one that smells too sweet. Sometimes that can be nauseating.

Rating– Good ingredients, pleasant scentand exceptional performance? What a combo! This product definitely deserves a nine. I subtracted one point for the price because, let’s face it. It’s a little steep, and I’m a little broke.
