When it comes to body lotion, Acure is my number one. I already tried and loved their mandarin scent, but I decided to switch it up this time and try the Lemongrass + Moroccan Argan Oil version ($8.57 for 8 oz). If you've tried their Lemongrass and Argan Stem Cell Shampoo and Conditioner, or the Leave In Spray, this has the exact same scent. It's tangy, bright, grassy, and herbal. It's just like the smell of fresh lemongrass, but even more pungent.
Lemongrass has astringent properties, and is known to refine dull and oily skin. This formula also has a blend of antioxidants and argan that are supposed to be firming. I'm not sure how much firming is noticeable, but I'll readily believe the antioxidants and natural oils will help prevent premature aging.
This is really my favorite because it is super moisturizing and emollient. It does have a bit of slickness before it absorbs, but once it does skin feels exceptionally soft and supple. In terms of natural ingredients, this lotion excels too. You'll find it's one of the very few without emulsifying wax or preservatives worth avoiding. Overall, I am a bit more partial to the mandarin scented one, but I find lemongrass to be a bright change of pace.
