While most people find applying body lotion to be a supremely relaxing (and possibly necessary) part of their self-care routine, it's the part I loathe most. So much so that I usually skip it. Why? Lotion is slimy and sticky and overly-fragranced and I just don't like how it feels all over my body.
Then I tried Nécessaire's The Body Lotion and it completely changed my mind.
Formulated with marula, cacay and meadfoam oils, it's ultra-moisturizing and sinks into my skin immediately (read: there's none of that my-skin-is-sticking-to-everything feeling). It's also unscented, which makes it an awesome option for those with sensitive skin. My skin fortunately isn't sensitive, but I prefer unscented products so I can smell like my perfume.
Though I'm not obsessive about having a clean beauty routine, I appreciate Nécessaire's devotion to obsessively researching their ingredients and only using clean, effective and high-quality materials (their words, not mine). That means no parabens, phthalates, sulfates, silicones, petro-chemicals, synthetic fragrances or synthetic dyes.
I'm also a sucker for its chic, minimalist, black and white packaging, which looks gorgeous on my nightstand. (I'm all about the aesthetic—sue me.)
Three-word translation? You'll love it. And right now, it's included in Violet Grey's Memorial Day sale, which runs from May 19 through May 25. The beauty retailer is offering $15 off $100, $50 off $250, $100 off $250 and $250 off $1000+.
