I love that Dr Bronner's is an organic, fair trade and cruelty-free company and hence I was keen to try their products. The organic lavender coconut lotion is the first lotion I've tried in their line and i'm writing this review after using up the whole bottle!
Certified to National Organic Standards our lotions are based on pure organic oils free of petrochemically modified ingredients and preservatives. Organic jojoba oil moisturizes dry skin exceptionally well due to its unique similarity to the skin's natural oil. Organic coconut oil assists absorption while organic hemp and avocado oils help keep skin smooth and supple. Organic grain alcohol (ethanol) is used as a natural preservative at a level that helps absorption without being drying. Only the finest organic essential oils are used for fragrance.
The lotion is thin and slightly sticky in consistency. It works like a lotion but I suspect because of the mixture of oils does take a little longer to absorb into the skin than a normal lotion, but not as long as an oil. If you use too much then it can be somewhat greasy.
Personally during the winter time I don't find the lotion to be as moisturising as I would like, my skin tends to veer towards the dry side and I need something a bit heavier. However I think this lotion would be perfect for the summer.
The scent is light and pleasant, it seems to disappear after around half an hour of applying the lotion.
Overall I really like the ingredients, the price is reasonable, the packaging is practical and I think this will be my lotion of choice during the summer months.
