Suave Professionals® New Moroccan Oil Body Care Line (Review)

This winter is killing my skin. I’ve got dry skin to begin with, but the extra cold, and extra dry, air we’ve had this year has left me a dry, flaky, itchy mess. (I know, so attractive, right?) The easiest way to remedy this is to drink lots of water and apply plenty of lotion.

Here’s the thing about lotions, though: most of the lotions I’ve tried have been greasy or heavy. I’d rub it on my arms, and half an hour later, I could still feel this heavy coating on my arms. I have no doubts as to where Cordy’s tactile sensitivity came from, because I’ve never used lotion unless it was necessary. I never wanted to use it as a kid, and as a teen I’d use the smelly hand lotions occasionally just to fit in with my peers.

Usually I resort to other ways to moisturize, like body wash that contains moisturizers in it, or bath oil. But when my skin is exposed to an onslaught of cold, dry weather – like we’ve had this entire winter – it can’t keep up and often dries out. My hair is just as dry as my skin, although it’s been doing well so far this year thanks to a Moroccan oil that I found to use on it. I’ve noticed that the oil left on my hands made them feel so soft afterwards, and absorbed so quickly with no heavy layer or greasy feel.

Moroccan oil seems to be the hot new moisturizing ingredient. It’s actually known as argan oil, which most often comes from Morocco, a lightweight miracle oil known to be rich in nutrients and antioxidants. So when I was asked to try out the new Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Body Care line, my experience with Moroccan oil convinced me it was worth giving it a try. For the first time, Suave® Body Care is launching products in the Suave Professionals® line, using premium ingredients to provide soft and radiant skin.

I received the body lotion and dry body oil spray to test. Suave Professional Moroccan Oil The Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Body Lotion is a daily moisturizer that absorbs quickly for up to 24 hours of non-greasy hydration, while the Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Dry Body Oil Spray is described as a non-greasy formula that absorbs instantly and seals in long-lasting moisture. There are few lotions I’ve ever been happy with over the past several years. Since entering my thirties, I’ve needed moisturizer for the dry, itchy skin on my arms and legs in the winter, but usually only use it when I absolutely need to, knowing I don’t like the feel of it.

So how did these products do? The lotion had a thinner consistency than I’ve noticed with other products. It rubbed in quickly and smoothly, without a lot of effort. I liked how lightweight it felt, and while it felt a little greasy at first, I noticed after a few minutes that the greasy feeling was gone! My skin didn’t feel like it had lotion on it at all, and yet it was soft, smooth, and looked healthy without any signs of dryness. Wow!

I tried the Dry Body Oil Spray the next day, and found similar results. It required even less effort to rub it in (you could really just spray it on and let it absorb while brushing your teeth), and despite being an oil, had no greasy feel afterwards and was also weightless.

The spray seems to work better when used right after a shower or bath, while your skin is still moist, locking in that moisture and providing a radiant look. The lotion is great anytime – I’ve been using it two or three times a day on my poor, dry hands and on my feet before bed. My skin isn’t itchy, and I like that I don’t have any heavy lotion feel. Moroccanoil® does seem to be a miracle ingredient, and Suave has harnessed the best attributes of it to create body care products that feel like luxury lotions.

Will I keep using the lotion and body oil spray? Absolutely. I love the way my skin feels, and I’m so relieved to find a solution to fight the cold winter air that doesn’t make me conscious of lotion on my skin.

  11. Elizabeth O'Brien says:

    I want to try the Moroccan Infusion Body Lotion. Even using regular lotions (the greasy feeling doesn't bother me that much) my hands are /still/ cracked and red. I would love to find something that actually works.

  12. Dry body oil spray, a thousand times over. Lotions are very hit and miss with me because of my sensitive skin, and if I bring one more bottle of lotion into the apartment I think my husband might implode. I have an appalling regimen I have to use on my hands in the wintertime, because not only does the dry air crack them, I also work with equipment that leaves my hands coated in grease and coolant, so my hands are usually left cracked and bleeding from the abuse, and my legs itch interminably from about October through May. I use oatmeal baths to keep the itchy legs in check, but maybe a moisturizing oil would help the dryness.

  13. The Body Lotion is the first thing I’m getting!

  14. All of the products sound fabulous but I would most like to try Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Body Lotion. I live in a very cold climate and my skin tends to get dry, this new range would really help my skin feel refreshed and I would smell great too!
