Today’s review is about a new brand Life and Pursuits. The brand offers certified organic and natural child and family care products. Their products are duly certified by USDA and NATRUE, the most stringent and reputed organic certification programs globally (some products are USDA certified and some are NATRUE certified and some products have both the certifications). So coming back to the product review, I was sent Soak In Goodness body lotion for review and after using it sufficiently here am reviewing it for you all.
Brand claims and Ingredien
The product is housed in a tube with a flip cap top and this makes it very easy to carry for travelling and plus no fear of contamination. The flip top cap and everything else works just fine with the product.
Coming to the consistency and texture if the lotion, the consistency is very runny, watery and texture is smooth and soft. The colour of the lotion is light yellow with a hue of orange, which resembles like chandan or almond paste in milk, yes it’s that authentic. The fragrance is more like sunflower oil, which upon application is more prominent and fades immediately after a couple of minutes. Of course if you apply in large quantity, this being a body lotion, it make take some time to fade away. I don’t have any problem with the consistency of the product, even if it’s runny, for that please read ahead.
The product is a body lotion, which can even be used on face too. Now, I like such products which serve dual purpose job, literally I mean you save on money, you save on time, you save on your luggage space while travelling 🤷. I have used the product both ways like a lotion as well as a face moisturizer. The lotion takes time to sink in the body and leaves a watery residue for a couple of minutes. Whereas when using it as a face moisturizer, it instantly gets absorbed in the skin without any watery, oily, greasy residue on face. It gets absorbed in seconds and after an hour or so you won’t even feel like you had applied anything on your face.
Coming to the effect of lotion, it is more of hydrating than moisturizing lotion for both face as well as body. I especially like this fact when I use it as a face moisturizer. Just a pea sized amount is enough for moisturizing my face. To be honest most of the times I reach out to this to apply on face. After applying on the face, it gives a nicely toned, soft and smooth skin. It can even be used in layering of skincare (if at all you like it) since it is barely there when you apply it. I haven’t had any breakouts while using this.
Coming to the consistency discussed earlier, the consistency is what makes the product so light and eases it’s absroption in the skin. Although yes when we open the cap the lotion immediately oozes out, but this is what makes the lotion light weight and there is no point in expecting it be thick in tube and light on skin at the same time. But yes product wastage does break heart, I know, but extra product can be easily lathered on face or body when applying vice versa. Overall a good body lotion which is certified organic and best suited for oily, acne prone skin. This product is NATRUE certified.
Price, Shelf life and Availablility – 600 INR for 100 ml with a shelf life of one year. Available on Amazon and brand website.
If you are into organic or certified skincare then you should try this one. Life and Pursuits Soak in Goodness is a good lotion for oily, acne prone skin which is a multi tasker too. It is more of hydrating lotion and can be easily fit into your layering skincare routine. The light weight consistency makes the product ooze out from the tube but since it a multi utility one excess can definitely be slathered on body or face ♥️. Grab this if you have oily acne prone skin and are looking for a basic moisturizer as well as a hydrating lotion.
