I have spent allot of time in the sun this summer (I know, shame on me) and even got a pretty bad burn which just really sucked the life out of my skin and made it really itchy. The body lotion that saved my scaly parched skin is Philosophy’s When Hope is Not Enough Body Lotion.
I have to say that I really hoped it would work and in this case, hope is definitely enough. Maybe they should change the name? I started using this product and not only did it quench my thirsty skin but it really soothed and calmed my red itchy sunburn. It definitely helps that the overall appearance of my skin looks more supple as well.
As an added bonus, Philosophy’s When Hope is Not Enough Body Lotion contains many of my favorite ingredients such as:
- borage oil (borago officinalis): rich source of omega 6 fatty acid; an anti-irritant, used to soothe and maintain hydration.
- evening primrose oil (oenothera biennis): rich source of omega 6 fatty acid; an anti-irritant, used to soothe and maintain hydration.
- olive fruit oil (olea europaea): rich source of omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids; used to soothe and maintain hydration.
There’s also a When Hope is Not Enough Body Scrub to go along with the lotion but I think this is very strong new launch from Philosophy and I have been revisiting this line more and more lately in search of good beauty fixes.
