Phytomer Hydracontinue Moisturising Body Milk

I got talked into buying this when I was at the beautician one day, they had an offer where I could get the soap and the body moisturiser together, so of course I couldn't resist and had to try it.

I should have known better than to spend so much money (it was around $50) on a body moisturiser. Really, a body moisturiser is just that, it moisturises. It's never going to do anything amazing that makes it worth spending a lot of money on.

Here's what Phytomer says: This fresh, light milk generously moisturizes and protects the body. Enriched with Pheohydrane, a 100% natural active ingredient, it maintains and regulates the skin's natural moisturizing functions. Your skin is left feeling silky, more supple, more comfortable, and more beautiful.

And here's what I say: it's a nice moisturiser with a pleasant scent. It sinks in quickly but is very moisturising. I've been using it when my skin is really dry, itchy and irritated and it's slowly getting my skin back into good condition.

Would I buy it again? Nope, there are moisturisers that are just as good for a fraction of the cost.

  1. I totally agree with your comment on moisterisers, 50 bucks is quite a lot.
