Just Pure Frangipani Ylang Moisturising Lotion is the second product from Just Pure I have tried and loved! You can read my review of their eye cream here. The moment I opened the bottle I fell in love with the fragrance – I love the bottle too, it’s glass with a really cute stopper. The lotion is light and I find a little goes a long way. The only downside about the product being in a glass jar is that it’s hard to control how much comes out and as I’m heavy handed I often end up with way more than I bargained for, which means my driest areas get an extra intensive moisturisation (do you think they will add the word “moisturisation” to the dictionary soon?!).
The two main ingredients in the lotion are Frangipani and Cocoa Butter. The Cocoa Butter used is unrefined and Just Pure adds it to their creams and milks as a thickening agent and stabiliser. If you don’t like the smell of Cocoa Butter fear not, you cannot detect a trace in the product. This is because the product is fragranced with the most wonderfully uplifting and stimulating blend of essential oils – a combination of Frangipani, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon and more. This is one of the nicest smelling body lotions I have ever experienced. Frangipani is one of the most expensive tropical flowers in the world and in Thailand they are a symbol of immortality. You will often find temples adorned with bowls full of these beautiful flowers.
I find the gorgeous citrus-floral fragrance really energising when used in the morning after my shower. The lotions are “substantial”, as Just Pure writes on their website, and it does take a while to work all residue into the skin (this may also have something to do with the amount I decant from the bottle in my case!). But the extra effort is well worth it as my skin feels super silky and smooth after application. As I’ve said before, I don’t like heavily scented products where the smell stays with you all time and you are hit with the smell from every move you make (this tends to happen more with synthetic fragrances as opposed to all natural ones). With this lotion, the fragrance is really strong whilst you are using the product and leaves the skin lightly, not overly, scented after use. Bloomin’ beautiful!
