My name is Anieka, and I’m addicted to cocoa-butter. What else cures ash so expertly? It’s old school, but whatever; the West Indian in me just won’t let it go. I still remember going to school super-shiny, after a process I now refer too as “greasing 101.”
Anywho, it’s time for a change. When summer comes around, cocoa butter (the huge tub at the local beauty supply, btw) just makes me sweat. I can’t with the greasy texture. So during a quick scan at the drugstore, I spotted St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion, and was intrigued.
I usually stray from lotions because they never seem to lock moisture in all day. But this one’s exactly what I needed – serious moisturization without the greasy texture! It’s summery-light and absorbs crazy fast, leaving my legs feeling like butter. Citrus is my favorite scent (the grapefruit notes are heavenly). Oh, and the continuous nozzle spray makes for easy, targeted application – love that my hands stay dry.
Cocoa-butter will always be dear to me, but St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion is my summer staple. Officially.
