Alva is a German brand and their products are made in Osnabrück which is in northern Germany. Like all of the other brands sold by MyPure, their products contain no sulphates, parabens or phthalates. The Alva brand is split up into a few different sections with the Naturkosmetik part including essential skin care items such as deodorant, shower gel and body lotion. Other sections of the brand are more specialised, for example Alva Rhassoul has been created for people with oily skin and acne.
So, back to the Milk and Honey Body Lotion….. The packaging is nothing special but is nice enough and I like the fact that the lid is on the bottom as it is easy to get out. The body lotion has quite a sweet smell (although you’d probably guessed that, what with the honey!) which I really like. The body lotion itself is quite thin and runny but not so runny that it gets everywhere when you try to apply it. I have been finding that it takes quite a while to rub in but once it’s done, it leaves my skin soft so I don’t really mind! The only downside to this body lotion is that it doesn’t say what sort of skin type it is supposed to be used on so I would guess that it can be used by everyone, otherwise it should say. It’s been really good for my skin which is normal/dry so I would buy this body lotion again.
