I have been enjoying Deep Moisture Body Cream by Neutrogena. This delicately scented moisturizer protects skin from winter dryness, while comforting the senses with a warm vanilla fragrance. I appreciate the quick to absorb formula enriched with shea, cocoa and mango butters. This jar is proof that there are amazing products to be discovered at the drugstore.
Deep Moisture Body Cream has a light texture that is a melding of a body butter and a gel. The consistency reminds me of creme brulee. The scent is equally appealing. There is a soft vanilla fragrance that makes think of custard. It has a gourmand perfume that is tempting.
I depend on cocoa, shea, and mango butters to keep my skin hydrated in winter. Deep Moisture Body Cream incorporates these skin healing butters into an easily absorbing formula. I use it daily after showering. Once the cream touches my skin, it begins to sink in. I am left with soft skin minutes after application, without any noticeable residue.
I am really impressed that I went through the chill December weather without a single dry patch or skin irritation. I typically am satisfied when a moisturizer heals dryness, but Deep Moisture Body Cream has prevented the effects of winter from showing on my skin.
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Distearyldimonium Chloride, Petrolatum, Isopropyl Palmitate, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Cocoa (Theobroma Cacao) Seed Butter, Mango (Mangifera Indica) Seed Butter, Benzyl Alcohol, BHT, Sodium Chloride, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Fragrance (1149-127).
Cocoa butter has been used for centuries to moisturize the skin. Women have relied on cocoa butter as a preventative against stretch marks. Cocoa butter creates a protective barrier between skin and environmental agents. It helps to seal in moisture while shielding the skin.
Rich in fatty acids, shea butter is a useful emollient. It helps the skin maintain moisture levels and promotes elasticity. Due to its Vitamin A and E content, shea butter has antioxidant properties, which protect the skin from the free radical damage that causes premature aging. It can also be effective as a wrinkle treatment through increasing cell renewal.
Mango Butter is a natural moisturizer that soothes irritated skin. It is often employed in anti-aging skin care products to aid in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Like shea, mango butter contains fatty acids that nourish the skin. Their composition is different. When combined, these butters offer a wealth of skin healing ingredients.
I certainly recommend Deep Moisture Body Cream. If, for you, winter has always meant confronting dry skin, this product will let you focus on more pleasant aspects like watching snowfall with a cup of hot cocoa.
