For adult who dislike lotions because you couldn't stand the feel of something (the lotion) on your skin, but you want to get rid of dry skin so badly, baby lotion is gonna be your best choice! The one that I have been using these few weeks is the Agnesia Baby Lotion.
Baby lotions are essentially a blend of oil and water with other ingredients added to give them their pleasant feel, colour and light fragrance.
The Agnesia Baby Lotion is designed to cleanse, moisturize and protect your baby's skin. A surprising fact of this lotion is it can be used as an alternative to baby wipes. It can be used with cotton wool as cleanser at nappy changing time or used to give baby a relaxing massage to help rehydrates the skin. Of course, it can be used on adults as well.
In case you wonder how does it work? The mineral oil works as a barrier between the skin and the air. It acts as an occlusive agent, which means it prevents water from leasing your body through your skin. Mineral oil is one of the best skin care ingredients available.
Baby lotion forms a protective layer over the skin which means it keeps sensitive skin from getting dry or irritated.
My thoughts: As I'm always applying lotions, I felt the effect is just the same as normal lotion. At first I thought that it wouldn't have any effect on adult's skin at all, but surprisingly the hydration is still acceptable. The fragrance is light, which is suitable for people with sensitive nose to fragrance smells. Overall it's not bad. I hope I have a baby in the house to help me on my review, but too bad.
It's very light and suitable for babies, children and adults with normal to dry skin. It's recommended to use immediate after shower or bath and apply 2-3 times a day
