It's winter, and for me that means drier skin. So I was happy to review Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Body Care line — specifically the Body Lotion and the Dry Body Oil.
I've been hearing about argan oil all over the place lately — have you? It's supposed to be fabulous for nourishing and moisturizing and chock full of nutrients and antioxidants. It's made from the nut of the argan tree that grows in Morocco, which is kind of far from Seattle, by which I mean I hadn't yet had a chance to give it a try. So I love that Suave's brought a premium ingredient to the mainstream, since this new body care line is infused with authentic Moroccan argan oil.
The Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Body Lotion was a nice, hydrating lotion with a pleasant, Moroccan-ish scent. What does Morocco smell like? As established, I have no idea. But this somehow evoked the idea to me!
The lotion absorbed quickly and felt nice on my hands. Even though it was substantial, it wasn't greasy, and the moisturizing lasted nicely even through my next hand washing.

than my intense hand tendons would suggest.
But, even more, I have to say I really loved the Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Dry Body Oil Spray. I didn't know I'd enjoy a spray oil (or any kind of liquid oil), but I really did. It spritzed out evenly from the spray bottle without getting on everything else, and it absorbed quickly into my skin with a nice sheen but no extra grease.

But, seriously, do I have man hands?
I really enjoyed smoothing it over all my skin after my shower. It had a lighter scent than the lotion, which I appreciated. It felt luxurious to hydrate like that during the winter — a spa-like experience.
Before I agreed to this review, I looked up the line at EWG to see how it rated. Because the body care line is so new, it's not listed, but the haircare rated well. Due to perhaps different ingredients in the body care, I'm not sure how high they would score, so I'll have to check back on that. For instance, both have fragrances, which could be an issue for people who are sensitive. And the first oil listed in the spray is mineral oil, which I'm fine with, but I know some people have reservations about it since it's a petroleum byproduct. (As someone who is blissfully addicted to petroleum jelly, I remain complacent.)
At any rate, I've always been pleased at how affordable Suave makes its products, and the way they can make rich-feeling products at a reasonable price point. I'll continue to enjoy the lotion for my winter-battered hands, and the oil spray to remoisten after a shower and my very occasional shaves!
