CONNOCK LONDON – Kukui Oil Hydrating Body Lotion
Well, we’ve been dreaming of Greek beaches and warm summer sun this week which made us think about that classic beach beauty dilemma: How DO you keep skin super-hydrated without that ‘slippery seal/I-borrowed-a-bottle-of-olive-oil-from-the-beach-taverna/fell off an oil rig’ look?
It’s rather a bold thing to say but Amanda Connock’s Kukui Oil Hydrating Body Lotion is quite possibly one of the best scented body lotions we’ve tested since The Beauty Shortlist launched two years ago. It just feels great on, with a very “clean” finish and it leaves a subtle veil of “Hawaiian flower” scented deliciousness on your skin. Best of all it works hard to keep skin smooth, thanks to the Hawaiian Kukui Oil with Essential Fatty Acids, Vitamin E, Macadamia Oil and Shea Butter.
Shea, as you’ll know if you’re a read-the-label person, is the star of the show in many of the high calibre hand creams/body lotions on the market. And did we mention that this formula leaves your skin with a lovely sheen? And that you get a full 300ml, so it works out at just over £10/100ml?
Earmarked for the beach bag.
PS: Connock are giving away a FREE Wonder Balm worth £18.50 with the purchase of any two products.
About Kukui Oil: Harvested in Hawaii from Kukui nuts, it’s a skin-conditioning superstar and excellent emollient. Highly penetrating to the skin, it improves skin suppleness and elasticity as well as soothing minor skin irritations. The oil contains very high levels of linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids, Omega-3 and Omega-6.
