“You’ve got a sample package for your blog” my husband said when coming back into the house from checking the mail box. “Cool. Can you please open it for me” I said as I was curious and excited, but in the mid of preparing dinner. I heard him open the package and then the characteristic noise of opening a collapsible tube.
“You won’t like this one” he said. “Why are you saying that? What is it?” I replied and looked over my shoulder, but couldn’t see anything as his back was blocking sight. He turned around and I saw that he was distributing a body lotion all over his arms where he suffers from dry skin every winter since we immigrated to Alaska.
“It’s a body lotion from Belli Skin Care. It has lemon oil and chamomile and smells very fresh like peeling a fresh citrus fruit.” he answered. The lotion absorbed fast into his skin. I literally could watch it.
After dinner, I wanted to take photos of the lotion and lip balm from Belli Skin Care, but could only find the medical grade hypoallergenic lanolin lip balm in the mailing package. “Where did you put the lotion?” I asked my husband. “In my bathroom. I thought you won’t wear this lovely fresh lemon scent and I love it.” he responded. “Cute try” I thought, smiled and went upstairs.
I took the photos and opened the tube myself. It really smells very uplifting and fresh like lemons. The scent is very gender neutral as there are no sweet notes. I put some lotion on my hands, which are always dry in the Interior’s dry continental winter climate. The Belli lotion felt very luxurious on the skin. It immediately removed the itching. Well, chamomile is well known for soothing and refreshing.
Next I studied the label. The lotion also includes, among other ingredients, vitamin E and jojoba. The latter is similar to human collagen, i.e. it fights wrinkles. The lotion is free of artificial dyes and fragrances. That’s always a big plus!
What I love the most about the Belli Skin Care lotion? I know this sounds funny. 🙂 In the 16th winter of living in Alaska, my husband finally found a lotion that he loves to use and that relieves his dry skin. His arms and hands look and feel so much better just after a couple of days of using it! <3
What happened to the lip balm, you ask? It provides great moisture to my lips and they feel smooth and look great. I love it! <3
