Kiehl’s Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion

7 Mar

I LOOOOOVE body lotion. I think I mentioned before, I have a whole big bag of it that I am slowly working through. Currently, I am using Kiehl’s Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion, and I gotta say, it’s aight… but just aight.

PROS:
It smells nice – citrusy.
It moisturizes reasonably well.
It goes on smoothly and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling.

CONS:
When it sinks in, it kinda smells like pot. (I am not the only one who has noticed this.)
It has a slightly grainy texture.
I’m not sure it’s that much better than any other moisturizer I have used, but it sure does cost more.

I also kind of half hopped on the whole argan oil bandwagon, but have not been particularly impressed by what I have experienced with it, so I am almost put off by it now – it’s starting to seem like a silly fad. I also see no basis for this lotion’s claims that it improves “skin’s texture and resilience,” either, but that could just be me.

Overall, I’m divided on this. If you already have a moisturizer you love, I’d say don’t bother. If you’re looking for a new one, maybe give this one a try and see if you like it. You can get it fairly cheap on Amazon at the link above.
