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.


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,


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.


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