  • very moisturising
  • 39% of all ingredients are natural
  • hand made
  • paraben free
  • vegan
  • not tested on animals
  • unrefined ingredients
  • no synthetic fragrance

[/sm_column_text][sm_custom_heading heading_tag=”h4″]Cons[/sm_custom_heading][sm_column_text]

  • I find the smell very strong and long lasting, in saying that I asked other people to try it and I was the only one that didn’t like the smell
  • not easily accessible in my are, got it on sale in TK Maxx

[/sm_column_text][sm_custom_heading heading_tag=”h4″]Summary[/sm_custom_heading][sm_column_text]Alaffia Shea & Green Tea Revitalising lotion is amazing, to me anyway. Its very moisturising affordable. It is a great value for money. I am using it for the last couple of weeks and honestly I can;t recommend it enough.  The smell for me is a bit overpowering, but since it works so well I am willing to overlook that one flaw.[/sm_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]

    I love Alaffia products too – and I too found them in TKMaxx as well! Not sure if I should review them or not, as they aren’t accessible to readers, so I don’t see much point in doing so? I have contacted the brand about EU retail or online shops, and all I got was a reply that “it is available in good shops throughout the word” which does not give much information, does it? I wish it was freely accessible to us here! I’ve seen it on iHerb for twice cheaper to what we pay here, but then there’s a thorny issue of custom taxes :/

      This was one of first articles on my blog. I probably didn’t think much about its availability and usefulness. I learnt a lot since then. Thanks for reading 🙂
