Lotion of the Week!


I'm drowning in lotion. That's not a truly bad thing when you consider the dry Utah clime. But still, I have about 19 sq ft of skin to slather, and bottles upon tubes are spilling out of my cabinets. I added to the collection today after a photoshoot down in Lehi. Perfectly Posh is a direct sales company specializing in fun body products from lip gloss to foot scrubs. I couldn't resist taking home more swag to try.

But I must finish my bottle of Sebamed first. There are no fancy labels, no decadent scents; it's just plain 'ol moisturizing body lotion. But is it???

The rather large bottle sits on my nightstand as part of my bedtime ritual. I reach for it without thinking.

Whether it's after a day of skiing, rockclimbing or hiking my hands and feet are in dire need of a rub down. My face too! Sebamed is a lightweight, hypoallergenic lotion that contains chamomile extract and allantoin for moisture and hydration. I put it everywhere. No rashes, no breakouts, just lightweight moisture. It goes on smooth; not greasy. The high concentration of gycerin and sorbitol, with a light 7 percent lipid compound, helps preserve skin's natural moisture balance. The label says that the product is formulated to a pH balance of 5.5 level- the pH of healthy skin.

The bottle has lasted me all winter and should take me through most of the summer. However, I love trying new things so stay tuned to read about other products perfect for a mountain life.
