Drunk Elephant has done it again with their new supercharged body lotion that contains a blend of 10% AHAs that gently exfoliate to restore and resurface dull and uneven areas, while its nourishing mix of soothing plant oils, deeply moisturising butters, and barrier-supporting electrolytes replenishes dry and dehydrated skin below the neck.
Lotions that contain glycolic acid help to improve the look of dry, crepey, sun-damaged skin. AHAs also help enhance the skin’s ability to hold on to vital hydration and promote visibly firmer skin, like no run-of-the-mill body scrub ever could.
Why We Are Obsessed
With its blend of glycolic, tartaric, citric and lactic acids, the new T.L.C. Glycolic Body Lotion gently smoothes and refines rough, bumpy skin while improving areas of uneven tone.
A potent mix of antioxidant-loaded non-fragrant plant oils and butters like green tea seed, passionfruit, apricot, marula, and shea work to soothe and deeply moisturise dry, irritable skin, while squalane, vitamin F, sodium hyaluronate, and niacinamide work to create a stronger, healthier acid mantle. Powerful electrolytes (coconut fruit juice and sodium PCA) provide critical hydration and help defend against environmental stressors.
Supercharged with ingredients that go beyond simply moisturising your skin, this body lotion formulated at an ideal pH of 3.5 helps to strengthen and replenish a compromised skin barrier, boosting the production of vital natural moisturising factors that keep it healthy, soft, and flexible—like ceramides and cholesterol—as well as helping restore and protect the water content of skin. T.L.C. Glycolic Body Lotion is formulated at an ideal pH of 3.5.
How Best To Use It
It’s important to bear in mind that this is not your usual, run-of-the-mill body lotion. This lotion provides skin with much needed moisturising properties, while at the same time, deeply exfoliating, so it is best not to use it after shaving, or using a body scrub or brush or any form of exfoliation. I mean, you wouldn’t scrub your face with a face scrub and then use a chemical peel would you? Well the same logic applies here.
We think this lotion is fantastic because it makes our skin look smoother, fresher and more even. Lumps, bumps and uneven bits are a thing of the past, and better yet, it eradicates the need to use a body scrub or brush in the shower, saving much time and effort!
The DRUNK ELEPHANT T.L.C. GLYCOLIC Body Lotion retails for $35 and is available at Sephora.
