We Love Wednesdays: Alba Papaya Mango Body Cream
Alba Papaya Mango Body Cream, 61 Dirhams at Life Pharmacy
I just love the texture of this cream
I have only tried a few Alba products, but I have been pretty impressed with all of them. This body cream is no exception.
It contains so many gorgeous ingredients like aloe leaf juice, shea butter, kukui seed oil, macadamia oil, cucumber and of course, mango and papaya extracts.
This cream has "tropical fruit enzymes and beta carotene blended in a rich, luxurious body cream to soften, soothe and smooth rough, dry, flaky skin".
And it smells so yummy! You can really pick up the papaya and mango in it. Due to the fruit enzymes, it tingled a teeny bit the first time I applied it. I applied it at night and woke up with soft, moisturized skin. It's such a great product for the summer because, not only does it moisturize really well, it also smooths out any rough patches like knees, back of the thighs, feet and elbows. And it's a great bed time treat for your hands, too.
The texture is slightly heavier than regular lotions, but lighter than body butters (like the Body Shop's) so it is easy to apply and massage into the skin.
This has quickly become one of my summer staples!
