The latest Liz Earle product, the Energising Body Lotion, promises to solve just this problem. It's a lightweight lotion that still has all the powers of moisturization. So you can imagine how excited I was to get my grubby little hands on this one! Would it be able to solve my hot weather moisturization woes?
The Liz Earle Energising Body Lotion comes in a sensibly-packaged tube with a flip-top. The tube contains 150ml of lotion, which isn't a great amount considering it's a body lotion. But as we all know, great things can come in small packages.
The lotion is white, and very light in terms of texture. This definitely isn't one of those heavy creamy body lotions. It also has a very invigorating herbal scent, that kind of reminds me of the scent that Liz Earle uses in its haircare range. I imagine the scent is probably a love it or hate it thing. The scent is pretty strong, though, so if you're going to be applying this, it'll be lingering around for awhile before dissipating. I personally like it thought - the herbal scent wafting on my skin kind of reminds me of aromatherapy, and is actually quite stimulating.
So how does it work as a body lotion? I'm pleased to report that it actually absorbs really well, without leaving any sticky residue or any icky I-just-applied-lotion feeling. And it actually moisturizes, too, although I don't think it would be sufficient for those freezing cold winters. But for warmer weather, I think this would be perfect.
So do you need it? Well, not if you live on the North Pole, or rarely ever see hot weather, or don't like strongly scented lotions. But if you have been looking for a lotion that's perfect for summer, or hot climates, and you love scented products or are into aromatherapy, this one is worth checking out.
