How are you, princesses? I just got this compelling/hilarious question from a reader…
Q: My skin is very, very dry. All over. And I’ve tried the intensively moisturizing drugstore creams, and not only does nothing work, I just feel so regular using them. Not naming any names, but why do treatment lotions have to be so unglamorous? Send help. — J. Taylor
A: J, I have no idea with treatment body creams are so unglamorous, but goddamnit, they are. You nailed it. Overly thick, medicinal-smelling, and in uninspired grandma packaging. What I’m hearing you say is that you want a body lotion that soothes your dry skin…but is sexy. Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Treatment is precisely that, fam.
I know, it’s totally weird. Moroccanoil is obvs a haircare line, but I might like their body lotion the best. Forget the sleek, South Beach-bright tangerine packaging (makes me think of a beach vacay, for some reason) — this lotion isn’t a lotion , at all. It’s a gel-oil! Like, thicker than a massage oil, but not as dense as a gel. I’ve never experienced a texture like this. Loaded with hydrating argan oil, it instantly melts into your skin, leaving it supple, smooth, and wildly un-ashy. And ungreasy. And scented with honey-lavender goodness. Plus you can add a dab into your bath for extra silkiness. Ladies, it’s the sexiest dry skin lotion under the sun. Buy!
