Hello everyone! Every once in a while I do tend to forget packing certain cosmetic items while travelling. I am usually quite organized but every now and then I forget basics like deodorant, lip balm and body lotion. The last time I traveled to Europe I forgot to take my body lotion along and my skin was mad at me! I popped into a drugstore in Spain called Primor and picked up the Cyclax Nutressa Cocoa butter body lotion for 2 Euros!
For the price tag I wasn’t expecting much but I was in for a surprise! The lotion is extremely light weight and non greasy making it ideal for summer time. In fact it was perfect for Spanish weather 🙂
The lotion is tinted but it doesn’t translate to any color on the skin. It has a pleasant smell that isn’t too over powering. The biggest plus for this lotion is that it is non greasy like I mentioned before..it sinks right in to the skin. However I doubt this would be moisturizing enough for dry winters.
Cyclax is a UK brand and the body lotion is made in the UK. I pulled up the ingredients from the Amazon UK website :
As you can see the ingredients are pretty similar to a lot of standard drugstore body lotions with Glycerin, Triglycerides and Cetearyl Alcohol in the top of the ingredient list. Cocoa butter does make an appearance as the 8th ingredient listed so the lotion is very much true to its name ( I have seen lotions where the ‘main’ ingredient is listed at the bottom so this is impressive).
Overall, this is a great body lotion for the 2 Euro price tag. Have you tried anything from the Cyclax brand?
Until next time, ciao!!
