I love to experiment with new body lotions/butters and always look for something new. If they are affordable that's always a plus and it's hard to resist not to buy them all. Today I decided to write you about product like that that is really affordable and I didn't really have high hopes in,but, I was wrong. Now it became one of my favourite products in skincare in general. From title you can guess thet this review is gonna be on Balea Creme Ol body lotion with almond oil. Even though is part of their LE (limited edition) I realized that Dm has it almost always on their shelves like a 'regular product' so I guess that if it's currently not in your Dm drugstore it's probably gonna be available very soon.
Basic info about product:
- price: 10-15 kn ( $2)
- amount: 200 ml
- available: Dm drugstores
What does Balea say: With almond oil. For dry skin. Instructions for use: every day gently massage it in your skin in circular motions. Dermatoligically tested, pH neutral.
In the very beginning I have to mention my skin type. My skin (body) is normal to dry and in winter and during colder days it can be dehydrated. Packaging of this body lotion is good because it comes in tube so it's easy to dose amount of product you need. Smell of this bodylotion you can either love or hate. I personally really like it and I could smell it all day long but for example my mum doesn't really like the smell of it. It literally smells like almond oil in lighter version. Thats smell stays on skin for few hours wich is pretty amazing. I usually use it before I go to bed and next morning you can still smell it. If you don't like that smell it might be a little problem.
Texture is thick and creamy, it's definitely not to thick so you can easly apply it on your skin. I give it big plus not only because of the texture but also because it absorbs into skin fast. This body lotion didn't left greasy feeling on my skin or stains on clothes. It works very well on noursuring skin. Whenever my skin was very dry or deyhydrated after this losion condition of my skin was instantly way better. I believe that almond oil plays a big role in this bodylotion and reason why it is so good. This lotions contains, believen or not, 40% of almond oil. Even though it contains so much almond oil I can surely say it's not greasy or heavy on skin at all.
This tube is almost empty but unfortunately it is not currently available in local Dm so I am gonna try out something new. If they get restock it (wich they probably will) I thin I would get another tube. Overal I can honestly recommend this product. The only tricky thing is smell wich is quite individual, I like it but it doesn't mean you will. Price is super affordable and it's really worth of trying out. This is one of the best body lotions in this price range for sure!
