Skincare routine can be crucial, especially when the weather is on the extreme side. It is important to find the right routine to keep the skin at the perfect stage. Think about applying something extremely heavy in hottest summer days or something so light in freezing winter… Both will probably not give you the result you want. Can we have one product that’s lightweight but does more than the lightweight ones? Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion might be the answer to that question!
Even though my face is on the oily/combination side, the rest of my body can be on the opposite side. I think due to the cold weather and taking extremely hot showers, my body gets really dry. Skipping a body lotion one time would result in a flaky skin. My winter body care routine includes body oils and heavy body lotions.
I’ll be honest, I haven’t heard Ameliorate brand before and when I saw Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion in the M&S Advent Calendar, first I thought it looked like medicine/toothpaste. Luckily it wasn’t any of them but a body lotion… I googled the brand and read some good things about them. Ameliorate is the first UK dermatological skincare brand proven to transform even the roughest, driest skin. First dermatological skincare brand? I’m expecting a lot from that brand…
Most of the time I stick to the brands I know like The Body Shop, Vaseline, E45, Nivea…Products that are not too expensive and also deliver. Comparing to the other brands, Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion is a little bit on the expensive side, however, as long as it delivers I’m all fine to pay extra.
Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion is originally developed to tackle the appearance of Keratosis Pilaris (rough, dry, bumpy’chicken skin’). It contains hydrating and powerful ingredients to improve the skin condition and give smoother and healthier looking skin. According to the website, Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion will resurface the uppermost layer of the skin and give you the soft and healthy skin you want. It contains Lactic Acid(encourage skin’s natural exfoliation process) and LaH6 Skin Hydration Complex. Combination of those two powerful ingredients might transform your skin.
Does it work? I can only speak from my experience… After using it regularly at least for a week, I can notice the improvement of my skin. My legs feel noticeably smoother and the appearance of the skin improved a lot. I like the silky smooth look and feel it gives. It really helped my skin with the flaky patches. Just be patient and keep applying the lotion… You will see the result eventually.
Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion is a lightweight body lotion and it is absorbed quickly leaving the skin soft from the first use. It doesn’t leave any greasy feeling but gives a little shine to the skin. It has a traditional cream smell which doesn’t linger long… Do you know what I mean with that traditional smell? It just smells similar to Nivea creams, unscented but has its distinctive smell.
How should you use it? Recommended use is twice daily for 4 weeks and then apply once daily to maintain the skin’s condition. As with other AHA products, Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion may make the skin more sensitive to the sun so you should use a high sun protection.
Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion is £22.50 for 200 ml. It is reasonably priced. If you have Keratosis Pilaris, you should consider giving it a try. I read a lot from people with KP and how it helped to improve their skin conditions. Although it is dor treating KP, you can just use it to achieve the smoothest skin. It is a good body lotion and it delivers like the heavy-duty products.
