I have a hard time with forcing myself to use body lotion. It’s easily my least favorite part of my routine because I find it really, really boring. I know it only takes a couple of minutes, but it feels like forever, and the lotiony feeling afterwards bothers me a lot more than it does on my face or my hands. So a body lotion has to do more than just moisturize in order for me to get excited about it. It needs to sink in quickly with as little dry-down time as possible, and it should smell amazing. It’ll be a painful chore to use up otherwise. Illi’s Total Aging Care Smoothing Lotion has been decent so far, and has probably come the closest to being a body lotion I maybe sort of enjoy using.
After my disappointment with the last Asian beauty body wash I tried, I made the decision not to settle for whatever random thing I could find. I’ve been really taking the time to search around for products that interest me, especially when it comes to body care because most of the time I find body care to be horribly boring. Illi is a brand that focuses a lot on body care products, and I’ve heard great things about their Total Aging Care line. The Cream Wash and the Body Lotion from this line were my next picks to try and get excited about taking care of my body skin.
