Product Review: Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy Lotion + Giveaway

I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s skin suffers during winter. It’s easy to cover everything up with stockings and long sleeves, and having an extra couple of minutes in bed is often more appealing than standing in a cold bathroom slathering moisturiser on your body. However, sometimes letting your skin do it’s thing during the cold weather is not a great idea. When my skin gets dry, it gets itchy. And it drives me insane. So I’ve really been making more of an effort to moisturise my body this winter, and the Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy Lotion has been a star in my routine. Clinically tested by dermatologists, the Daily Moisture Therapy range includes two creams and a lotion to nourish and repair dry, sensitive skin. This range also includes a gentle, soap free body wash which is designed to cleanse, soften and hydrate. Physiogel spokesperson Montse Pena said: “According to reports, dry, sensitive skin is a prevalent problem for many in Australia, yet there is reluctance amongst dry, skin sufferers to try new products. We believe this stems from a fear of flair up, and a lack of confidence that the products will deliver results. Physiogel is different. Our creams and lotions with Physiogel BioMimic Technology have the science to deliver visibly healthier skin while being hypoallergenic and free from fragrances, preservatives and colours. Physiogel products have already gained vast support overseas as consumers have discovered an immense faith in the skincare range. We’re now really excited to introduce the new Physiogel range to Australian consumers to address this growing need.” I’ve been leaning more and more towards fuss and fragrance free body lotions, and this one fits the bill. This lotion is exactly what I need, something lightweight but extremely moisturising, is fragrance free (and doesn’t have a weird psuedo-fragrance like some do), and sinks into my skin quickly so I can slap it on before putting on stockings in the morning. The 200ml PhysioGel Daily Moisture Therapy Lotion retails for $16.99 AUD and is available for purchase from Priceline (please note: this product was provided for consideration for review).

Product Review: Haus Of Gloi Milkmaid Whipped Soap

As I mentioned in my May Favourites post, I purchased this product after reading Anissa from Beautifully Glossy‘s recommendation of the whipped soaps in general. I’m glad that I ended up ordering this because the Haus Of Gloi Whipped Soap is one of the best body products that I’ve ever used. The formulation of the product seems similar to cupcake icing in the jar, but when you scoop some out and rub it onto your skin it transforms into a soft creamy soap. The Whipped Soap leaves my skin feeling really soft and moisturised, more so than I had expected it to. The ‘Milkmaid’ scent is right up my alley, as the notes are described as ‘flushed, but demure. fresh milk, clean linens, pal must and pink sweet pea blossom”. Yum. Haus of Gloi have a vast range of scents, and they’re all so complex that I find it hard to find ones that I really love enough to repurchase but Milkmaid is definitely one of them. This was part of their Spring 2012 collection and is not currently available on the Haus of Gloi website, but keep your eyes peeled because I know that they sometimes re-release scents in future seasons. The Whipped Soaps retail for $7 USD and are available for purchase online from Haus of Gloi but if you spot them be sure to snap them up quick because they sell out fast.
