Desert Essence Body Washes and Lotions Will Have You Dreaming of the Tropics

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

As a native Californian, and a resident of Los Angeles, I have been accustomed to living in a temperate climate. Therefore, when the weather does cool down and begin to resemble an actual "season" it always comes as a bit of a surprise– though it really shouldn't. When the air becomes cold and crisp I pull out my richer body creams and body butters and leave an assortment of them on my nightstand as a daily reminder to use them on a regular basis. 

I also fill my shower with lots of delicious body washes to start my day off with a lovely sensory experience in a steamy essence filled shower before I have to bundle up and face the day. 

My three new discoveries come from a line that I have used for many years, but somehow I never tried any of Desert Essence's luscious body washes and body lotions, and what a mistake that was! Their wonderfully hydrating body washes and body lotions are perfect for the cold weather because they provide excellent hydration for the skin.

Island Mango Hand and Body Lotion is a deliciously scented warm sweet mango that is pleasant to use and richly moisturizing. I love using it on my whole body before going to sleep because it allows me to drift off into a sweet slumber enveloped by this delightful tropical scent.

According to Desert Essence,

Surrender to the delightful scent of tropical Island Mango. Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil moisturize skin, leaving it smooth and silky, while hints of Mango and Passion Fruit captivate the senses. Treat your skin and senses to some natural goodness!
  • Deeply moisturizes skin
  • Leaves skin feeling smooth and silky without oily residue
  • Infused with irresistible natural tropical Mango scent
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Stearic Acid, Natural Fragrance (Parfum), Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*, Passiflora Incarnata Extract (Passion Flower), Hibiscus Rosa-Sinensis Flower Extract, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax*, Potassium Sorbate, Dehydroacetic Acid, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Benzyl Alcohol, Xanthan Gum. * Certified Organic

$8.99-$9.95 for 8.0 oz. from Desert Essence and Amazon.

Coconut Hand and Body Lotion is just pure heaven! If you love the smell of coconut, then the luscious warm scent of this richly moisturizing lotion will really delight you. This lotion is thick and rich, but it absorbs quickly leaving skin soft, smooth and moisturized.

According to Desert Essence,

Tropical extracts and oils provide deep nourishment to dry skin. Organic Coconut Oil penetrates skin and helps repair free radical damage. Organic Shea Butter and Organic Jojoba Oil provide intense moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth and silky. This luscious lotion rejuvenates the senses, with hints of Organic Coconut Oil and Organic Passion Fruit Extract.
