What I thought:
I've never suffered from dry skin so recently when a few dry patches appeared on my legs I had no idea what to use to get rid of them. I tried everyday light lotions, body shop body butters, E45 cream, sudocrem and nothing would get rid. If you wear fake tan then you'll know it sticks to any dry patches, so as you can imagine when I applied it I had darker areas over my legs that were really noticeable. I'd almost given up with hoping they'd go away and opted for jeans all the time, even in the boiling hot weather we've had recently - until I tried this. I really do believe when a product is genuinely good it deserves to be raved about and I could not rate this highly enough. Any dry ideas have completely cleared up and haven't re-appeared.
The body lotion comes in a gorgeous silver box and the squeezy tube is very pretty with a floral design up the side and easy to keep clean - I really do love the Liz Earle packaging! The cream itself is a really nice consistency and feels rich while still sinking into the skin quite quickly leaving it soft and smooth. The scent is the only thing I'm not a huge fan of, it really reminds me of tea strangely enough! It's definitely something I can overlook though as it works so well. The ingredients include Shea Butter, Organic Rosehip Oil, Cranberry Seed Oil, Pomegranate Extract and Neroli Oil - for 'visibly plump and smooth' skin.
Although it's quite pricey, it works and as stated if you have 'mature or very dry/sensitive' skin then it would be ideal for you. I've had this for a good few weeks now and have barely made a dent in the tube.
If you haven't tried it and you have dry skin, I'd HIGHLY recommend!
