The changing of the seasons is the absolute worst time for my skin. Itchy, flaky, dry and overall totally unappealing, I'm always seeking something that will hydrate my skin for more than 4 hours. You can view the struggle with my feet here. Recently, I have discovered the mecca of moisturizers. Dr. Nona has got to be the oldest well kept secret. The company is 20 years old and is distributed worldwide.
Dr. Nona's products boasts that of Dead Sea components which are incredible. If you are not familiar with the Dead Sea, it's the only place on earth where the salt water is so buoyant that you can float unassisted, naturally. Like, you're literally just floating in the water. The Dead Sea's healing properties were so popular that John Lily created something called a floatation tank which emulates the dead sea properties utilizing epsom salt which is softening for the skin and hair.
I wasn't a big fan of using lotions prior to my pregnancy. The smells always counteracted my perfumes, clogged my pores and caused bacne(back acne), After having the baby, I decided to buckle down and start taking care of my skin (I have really bad stretch marks now). I've used tons of products since the baby but a majority of them aren't worthy of mentioning. I've been searching for something that would make my skin feel like I did when I emerged from the float tank. Solaris is it.
I spent a week with Solaris (their number 1 selling lotion). I cheated on my Bath and Body Works and coconut oil. Solaris' smell is light, a little minty and floral. It reminds me of when I was a kid and my grandma would give me something from her purse, but every thing in her purse smelled like her, even the candy. My grandmother always kept Keri lotion in her purse and I hated the smell but it made my hands soft. Dr. Nona's is Keri's lotion on crack.
The more frequently I used Solaris, the less amount I had to use. The first two days, I slathered it heavily all over my skin, including my feet. By day 3, half of what I used before sufficed for the same area. The lotion absorbs quickly, softens instantaneously and hydrates long term.
Last night I was looking to get some action from my fiancé and I spritzed some of my Chloe perfume into the lotion and it was magic! Dr. Nona not only has amazing products but the packaging screams luxury! When I unboxed it, my initial thought was "OMG it's so damn cute". The way a product is packaged tells me a lot about the company and whether or not they take their product seriously.
If you're interested in Dr. Nona's products for yourself(as you should be) or for Christmas gifts, head over to their website and purchase Solaris for $42. (Cheap tip: They have a coupon for 10% off and you can free samples by clicking here)
