Directions: Apply generously after bathing or when required.

Application: After a bath or shower I would apply this product generously onto my body, it does take a few mins to soak into my skin, and it leaves it instantly nourished, soft and supple.

Results: Having used the product for a few weeks, I noticed my skin felt very soft and supple it lasted until I next showered. The texture of the body moist is very thick and creamy;  a little goes a long way. Love the lavender scent it’s rather smoothing. It worked excellent on my drier areas of the body, my elbows and knees. I did found on some occasions I had nettles, which pricked my skin. The richness and the vitamin packed goodness felt great on my skin and I had a slight glow.
