Maui Moisture Body Care Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Maui Moisture Body Care Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion for very dry skin. This body lotion also contains coconut oil and macadamia oil, and it promises to soften, quench and revive the skin.

According to the manufacturer, this body lotion is vegan and cruelty-free, and it doesn’t contain mineral oils, silicones, parabens, SLS, sulfate surfectants, synthetic dyes or ALES. Instead, the product contains pure coconut water and aloe juice.

I’ve been using this body lotion once to twice daily for the past 3 weeks, and I’m not blown away. Compared to Maui’s Volcanic Ash Body Lotion, this body lotion is reasier to massage into the skin. Definitely a good thing!

Unfortunately, I don’t feel any longlasting hydration. This body lotion feels sticky for a few minutes (the current hot weather doesn’t help), but a few hours later, my skin feels like paper. 🙁

The fragrance isn’t my favourite. It’s shea (nice) and coconut (not so nice). It’s not a bad fragrance at all – just not something I’d love. My husband actually likes the fragrance of this body lotion, so I will continue to use it a few times per week. However, I’m for the days that I’m not using this body lotion, I’m using a more hydrating skin care product.

I’m a bit sad that, of the 3 Maui products that I tried, none worked for me. But you might have a different experience. If you’re interested, Maui Moisture Body Care Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion is available as 384ml. I believe I paid £4 (TK Maxx).

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
