Although the St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotions became available back in October 2013 I just recently had the chance to try them out! St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion is a continuous spray lotion that moisturizes without that heavy lotion feeling or a greasy residue. I have three scents to share with you today & they’re all fabulous! Keep reading to hear more about the St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotions in Citrus & Vitamin C, Oatmeal & Shea Butter, & Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract & to enter the giveaway!
If you hate the thick & heavy feeling of lotion on your skin in warmer weather, St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion Spray will give you freshly moisturized skin without the heavy lotion feel. You get a really even application & the spray-on method is by far the easiest & quickest way to apply lotion. Seriously- I can’t believe I’ve spent so long doing the lotion drying dance. You haven’t done it? Well then you probably have never been in a hurry to get going while battling slick, greasy feeling lotion. Lotion marks on clothes is not the kind of fashion statement I want to make! Pretty, hydrated skin is!
St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotions come in three varieties: Citrus & Vitamin C, Oatmeal & Shea Butter, & Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract. They contain these natural ingredients: Grapefruit Extract, Vitamin C, & 100% natural moisturizers (glycerin, Shea butter). Glycerin is known to moisturize skin while Shea butter contains skin moisturizing vitamins A, E and F, as well as fatty acids, which are known to place moisture back into thirsty skin
St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion in Citrus & Vitamin C: This scent is so fresh & energizing. I love the grapefruit, orange, & lime notes along with a very soft patchouli that is way in the background. This is my favorite of the three scents to use before & post workout or if I’m trying to really wake myself up in the morning. It isn’t too sour or too sweet–the balance is awesome!
St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion in Oatmeal & Shea Butter: Formulated specifically for dry skin (like mine!) this variety has a really soft, comfortable scent. With notes of soft white floral, honey, almond, & coconut this is the most soothing of the three varieties for me personally. I absolutely love this one before bed because it doesn’t bother my allergies or my husband. When I am wearing a strong perfume or want something that smells soft this one blends in seamlessly.
St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion in Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract: The scent that appeals to me the most! It makes me instantly happy & reminds me of warmer weather & my favorite flowers–orchids. It has notes of guava, mandarin zest, pineapple, Lily of the Valley, pink orchid extract, Hawaiian Jasmin, Coconut Milk, creamy musk, vanilla, & blonde woods. Whew! Smells & looks a bit like a perfume doesn’t it? This is like a vacation in a bottle!
I’ve been using the St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotions every day & even multiple times a day because it is so fast & comfortable to use. After my morning shower, after a workout, & right before bed are my favorite times & it has cut my “lotion time” into one third! I don’t have to wait to put on clothes, crawl into bed, or go about my day–just spray on & go! You can find St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotions at mass retailers, select drugstores, & supermarkets nationwide.
