Luxe For Less: Eco-Friendly Moisturizers

Nourish dry skin with these affordable and natural body lotions

As much as we want to deny it, summer is just about over. And as the temperature dips, our skin starts to crave moisture. Lucky for us, Toronto-based natural skin-care company Live Clean is launching three new body lotions just in time. Not only do these non-greasy lotions leave your skin feeling silky smooth, but they’re also made from 98 percent plant ingredients.

The Sensitive Skin Fragrance Free Body Lotion, enriched with vitamins A and E, is a gentle treat for even the most finicky skin. And the Fresh Water Moisturizing Body Lotion, infused with rosemary and chamomile, smells and feels like an indulgent spa experience (minus the price tag). But the hands-down FLARE favourite has to be the Exotic Nectar Argan Oil Replenishing Body Lotion, rich in hydrating argan oil from Morocco. The heavenly sweet and nutty aroma might even be enough to pry me away from classic cocoa butter, my former must-have moisturizer. Who said you can’t spoil yourself and have a clear conscience?

Live Clean Body Lotion, $7. At select Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix stores across Canada.
