Maui Moisture Body Care Detoxifying + Volcanic Ash Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Maui Moisture Body Care Detoxifying + Volcanic Ash Body Lotion for rough, dull skin.

I’m quoting from the bottle here… this body lotion promises to smooth, purify and restore the skin. It contains exotic volcanic ash, citrusy bergamot oil and tangy white ginger.

The bottle states that this body lotion is made with 100% aloe juice as the first ingredient. It also states that this product contains no mineral oils, no silicones, no parabens, no SLS, no sulfate surfectants, no synthetic dyes, and no ALES. In addition, Maui Moisture claims that this product is vegan – which is great!

I’ve been using this body lotion for about 2 weeks now, and I think it’s not great. The formula is rather thick, so it’s more like a cream than a lotion. However, this product is nowhere near as nourishing as I expected. About 2 hours after using this body lotion, my skin feels like I didn’t use any moisturiser. So I would say that this product behaves like a light summer lotion.

Another thing I want to mention is that this body lotion smells of coconut and nothing else. Maui Moisture products contain coconut oil – which is, of course, a good skin care ingredient. But let’s be honest, when you read about “citrusy bergamot oil” and “tangy white ginger” on the bottle, you’re not really expecting a pure coconut fragrance. Fortunately, the fragrance doesn’t last very long, so I should be able to commit to finishing this product.

if you’re interested, Maui Moisture Body Care Detoxifying + Volcanic Ash Body Lotion is available as 384ml. I paid £4 (TK Maxx). This body lotion and a few other Maui Moisture products are available at Savers (in-store and via their website) too!

Haul! Sukin, Mugler, Tonymoly, Nina Ricci, Maui Moisture, NIP+FAB, Bees Brilliance & Precision Beauty Tools

Hi there! Today’s post is about a bunch of products I ordered from TK Maxx. Some of the bargains were just too good to resist…

Sukin Hydrate Pack for a ridiculous £12.99! This set contains 3 products – with one of them being the full size 120ml Rosehip Hydrating Day Cream which is £18.95 on its own. What a bargain set!

Nina Ricci L’Extase, 30ml for £16.99. Mugler Aura Eau De Parfum Sensuelle, 50ml for £34.99.

NIP+FAB Renew Retinol Fix Tonic, 100ml for £10. This toner is usually around £22. Tonymoly I’m Seaweed pack of 10 face masks for £9.99.

Bees Brilliance Skin Brightening Spot Essence, 15g for £3. This stuff is usually £24.99. Insane saving! I bought 2 bottles. Maui Moisture Volcanic Ash Body Lotion, Maui Moisture Shea Butter Body Lotion, these are 384ml each for £4 each.

And lastly, Precision Beauty Rejuvenating Micro-Needle Derma Roller for £4.99. Precision Beauty Jade Beauty Roller Set for £10. This is a back-up!

This is already it. I didn’t go overboard – it’s just skin care and fragrance. It’s not like I bought 10 eye palettes… 😜 Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try any of them? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading! x
