Best Of; Body Lotions

by 10.6.11

Hi Smoon Babies,

I thought that it would be nice to do a 'Best of' Series where I will show a couple of my favorite products from head to toe.

First episode from 'Best of' is; body lotion.

Some people (girls), use body lotion after every shower. When I would go to the gym, half of the women which were just freshly washed, were lathering on the lotion. I never had the patience nor persistence to keep up with this kind of ritual. Besides the whole smearing, which is a work out by itself, you also can't get your pants back on. Whenever I use body lotion, I would put it on before going to sleep, so that the lotion could really sink into my skin, and not my pants. That was the case until I ran in to the best body lotion ever. May I present to you:

On the left you find my ultimate favorite 'lather-me- on-lotion'; Balea. Balea is the house brand from the german drugstore called DM and I use a lot of Balea products. You get great value for money.

I love everything about this lotion, the scent (very important), the skin absorbs is really fast. No other lotion has made my skin this soft. This lotion, which contains 200 ml, only costs 1.75 euro. Simply unbeatable.

The only little disadvantage is that it does leave oil stains on the ground or car in my case. I once used it on my feet and then put my feet up, leaving two footprints on the dashboard... My car was all soft and smooth.

I mainly use it for my arms and legs, there you'll be safe from leaving prints.

The second lotion is from I found this brand while shopping in a mall in America. The smell just brings back good memories of touring through the USA. This is the second time that I bought this kiwi lotion. When I went back to buy it a second time, I didn't know how it was called. Luckily the lady was very helpful with finding the right one. She offered me two for a very good price, but I decided to only take one because of my poor suitcase, which was already stuffed to the max.

Next time when I'm in the US, I'll definitely get me a third one!

Happy lathering!
