January Labs Moisture Balancing Lotion, Review

I figured that when I finish a product completely, I’ll review it.

The brand:

American, independent, small brand. I think this is a good thing – not tonnes of product but just a minimal line of what looks like good stuff. They are also everything ‘free’. Cruelty free, sulphate free, paraben, fragrance….

The product:

Plant-based moisturiser.

Who can use it:

Probably everyone, shea butter far enough down the ingredients list to not be a problem for oily skin. Certainly didn’t break me out. I can’t imagine this would cause irritation for anyone as it’s so gentle.  Suitable for vegans.

Ingredients:

Squalane, Aloe Vera, Avocado Oil, Glycerin, Vitamin E, Jojoba Seed Oil, Sesame Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Glyceryl Stearate, Sunflower Seed Oil, Goji Fruit Extract, Organic Cucumber Extract, Organic Chamomile Extract, Organic Argan Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Isopropyl Palmitate, Coconut oil, starflower Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Linseed Seed Oil, Cranberry Oil, Olive Oil, Lime Oil, Rose oil, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Water

Not in the ingredients:

mineral oil, parabens, fragrance,

Packaging:

Non- fussy tube.

How to use:

I would use morning and evening, in the place of your moisturising step in routine.

How much:

£21 for 60ml, I thought this was good value.

The Good:

Just a good, non-fussy, hydrating moisturiser. I like creams that are very light and non sticky for my combination/spot prone skin and it’s great. I would say it’s hydrating enough for a dry skin too, and sits well under makeup. This is just a good moisturiser with good ingredients that isn’t too expensive. Which is shouldn’t be – spend your big money on a serum.

The Bad:

Nothing really.

Recommend?:

Yes, would tell anyone to try. Gentle, effective and not expensive.
