Beauty Review: Neutrogena Deep Moisture Body Lotion

I don't know about you, but earlier this week I had to give in and put the heating on, because it was just so cold here in London. That reminded that it was time to seriously start using body moisturiser again. I always use it due to having dry skin, especially on my arms, but particularly so in the winter when going from cold outdoor weather to the central heating in my flat and office. So today I wanted to talk to you about one of my favourite body lotions - Neutrogena Deep Moisture.

I love, love, love this product. I like the sleek design and the classic white and blue colour - it's not flashy or showy, but it looks very classic and timeless and would look great sitting on any bathroom shelf. I'm also a big fan of the fact it's got a relatively neutral smell, meaning you can layer it with your perfume or shower gel and it won't clash or fight with it. But what I love most of all is how truly moisturising it is. An awful lot of moisturisers, especially those at the cheaper end of the spectrum, are either really watery and don't do any moisturising at all or are too thick and just sit on the surface of your skin. Not this one! It's not heavy or clogging but sinks in really well and keeps your skin feeling moisturised without feeling like it's slurped up everything you've put on it. I put this on every morning and certainly don't use loads - at least not in comparison to other products - and my skin still feels lovely and soft and smooth by the end of the day.

The only thing I wasn't so keen on was the pump bottle - or, more specifically, the end of the bottle, when there was still loads of stuff left in there. Admittedly I did cut it up and managed to get a couple more weeks out of it, but generally I do prefer it when I can get to all the product without having to faff. That said though, the pump bottle does have the advantage that it gives you the ideal amount of product - I normally use about three or four pumps a day depending how much I feel I need, and that's plenty, whereas some squeezy bottles I can dispense far too much and be rubbing it in for aaaages.

Overall, this is a brilliant body lotion - perfectly moisturising even in cold weather, dispenses the right amount of product and a smell that won't compete with anything else you're using. And it's cheap too! A 250ml bottle will set you back £5.11 at Boots, or you can buy a 400ml bottle for £7.16, which I think is a pretty good deal. I have several moisturisers to work my way through but will definitely be coming back to this one.

Have you tried Neutrogena Deep Moisture? What did you think of it? And what's your favourite body lotion? Let me know in the comments and have a great day!
