The lotion is not that thick, quite runny in fact so you had to be careful when it was full as it came out rather too quickly.
It is a white creamy lotion and the smell I found quite unpleasant. It smelled sort of odd , sour and I really found it not nice at all so tended to use this on my legs and feet as I went to bed as I couldn’t smell it so much.
Despite the fact this felt quite runny to me it was a quite effective moisturising lotion on my legs though less great on my feet which I feel need something a bit more nourishing to stay relatively soft.
This has carrots and apparently sweet potatoes in it and these are good for their beta carotene which nourishes the skin and then the safflower oil, shea butter, jojoba oil, as well as aloe vera gel are there added for moisturising.. All nice ingredients but apparently they don’t make a pleasant scent and a bit of essential oil of something nice might make it more pleasant to apply.
Most of their products are suitable for vegans as this is but some do use animal-produced or derived products like beeswax and honey.
I am pleased to see that this uses some other natural preservative other than parabens which are mostly synthetically derived. It is also free of sls and phthalates and other toxins.
Personally I think this is expensive but I guess you are paying for a more natural product but I wouldn’t buy this one again as I am really not keen on the smell. I don’t mind non scented products but I am less thrilled with funny smelling ones like this is.
This body lotion from the Yes To Carrots range is surprisingly excellent! I usually find that lotions are not moisturising enough on my skin but this one is very different! . The product has medium consistency which is white in colour. The fragrance is a subtle strange mix between baby powder and vegetables, namely carrots wh9ich I personally find lovely but I fear many would disagree. The lotion contains extracts of carrots, pumpkins and sweet potatoes which contain Beta-Carotene, which is a natural form of Vitamin A found in orange fruits and vegetables. There is also dead sea water and natural oils to condition the skin. The product is paraben, phthalates and SLS free.
You only need a small amount of lotion as it is highly concentrated and it absorbs immediately into the skin, leaving no greasiness or residue. It leaves a subtle sheen on the skin that look beautiful. Your skin feels soft, smooth and lightly scented but this fragrance disappears quite quickly so it is not a problem. The moisturisation lasts all day or night and I have suffered no irritation at all from this product.
This is a lovely light lotion with superb moistursation which I would be happy to continue using In place of my normal thicker products - Highly recommended
