Yes to Carrots C Smooth Body Moisturising Lotion

The people at Yes to Carrots were kind enough to send me a full size bottle of C Smooth Body Moisturising Lotion to try, which was very generous of them. I had it sitting on my dressing table for a few weeks because I thought it'd be too heavy to use in summer, but then couldn't resist trying it out.

I'm happy to say it's a great lotion to use in summer. It has a lovely light texture, sinks in quickly and leaves my skin feeling moisturised and smooth. The moisturising factor lasts all day, even when I'm working in air-conditioning. With other lotions I often find that I need to reapply them halfway through the day, as the air-conditioning dries out my skin, but with C Smooth I don't have that problem.

One of the great things about this moisturiser is that it comes in a pump pack, which is my preferred packaging for body lotions, but often difficult to find. It has a very slight scent which reminds me of the beach. I can see this being one of my favorite body lotions. It's light enough to use in summer, and I'll be interested to see if it's hydrating enough to use in winter.

Would I buy this? Definitely, once my bottle runs out I'll be getting some more, in fact I'll probably buy a new bottle before the old one runs out so that I don't have to go without.

  1. Sounds awesome GQ! How'd you manage to score a full sized bottle?! Def want to try this one out next! :)

  2. The generous Jeremy at YTC sent it to me after he read my post about the lip butter, I was so lucky!

  3. That's fantastic! Must be so nice to have companies express their appreciation for your reviews! Yay for you! :)

  4. I like "Yes to Carrots" products as well, tho I haven't tried the lip butters. Good for you getting the full sized product for free, what a score!
