Product Review: Ultraceuticals Ultra Body Moisturiser

Today I’d like to share with you one of my newest discoveries, the *Ultraceuticals Ultra Body Moisturiser;

What They Say:
"This body moisturiser helps to balance and maintain the skin's optimum moisture levels. Developed with a powerful blend of biomimetic moisturising agents (Ceramide-3, Sodium PCA, Urea and Sodium Hyaluronate) to support the skin's own Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF) combined with Shea Butter and Glycerin to provide long-lasting hydration. Delicately fragranced with uplifting natural botanical oils, this fast-acting, non-greasy formula will leave skin feeling velvety soft, perfectly nourished and smooth."

RRP: $49.00 (200ml) – Available from Ultraceuticals, David Jones and select stockists

What I Say:
My skin on my body is not particularly dry during summer – actually, when the temperatures heat up, my skin seems to be getting greasier. Yet I never omit using a body moisturiser when I’ve had a shower, as if I do, I feel my skin becoming itchy. But sadly, many of the creams and lotions that I use on my body throughout the year, which are perfectly fine and not too heavy or greasy, suddenly become way too concentrated for my skin with the mercury strikes.

Enter the Ultraceuticals Ultra Body Moisturiser. Ultraceuticals is an Australian cosmeceutical brand founded by a cosmetic physician in 1998, with the goal of having scientifically proven products addressing ageing, pigmentation and acne. The products have been developed to include superior and highly effective ingredients to create the most efficient products possible without needing a prescription.

The moisturiser has been cleverly developed to support the skin’s natural moisturising, and it also contains shea butter and glycerine to help keep the skin moisturised. It absorbs into the skin instantly, leaving it feel so deeply moisturised, yet without making it feel greasy or tacky. My skin is simply silky soft and smooth.

The Body Moisturiser comes in a tube with a flip lid, making it easy to use, and being designed to stand on its lid, it is easy to use up every last drop of moisturiser as well.
It has a lovely and gentle floral scent, which however more or less fades as soon as the cream has absorbed into the skin.

After having used the Body Moisturiser daily for several weeks, my skin not only feels, it also looks healthier. Gone are the dry shins (the only part of my body that is usually dry), and even my decollate, which is starting to show the signs of ageing, looks so much nicer, with fine lines and wrinkles appearing to be plumped out.

What I Like:
  • Absorbs instantly into the skin
  • Non-greasy
  • Has a lovely gentle floral scent
  • Products are Australian owned and made

What I Don’t Like:
  • A little pricey

Overall this is such a nice Body Moisturiser, and I love how it makes my skin feel and look. There is no denying that it is a little more expensive than then body moisturisers that I usually use, but I can certainly also tell the difference, so I wish my budget would allow for me to use this all the time. If you afford it, it is well worth the splurge!
