  • The buttery balm does not recondition my salt-drenched skin right away, but I think to a degree, it alleviates the faint stinging sensation you get after emerging from the waters

      This used to be my favorite post-tanning balm after hitting the beach. I just love the consoling feel that after-sun lotions provide, neutralizing the skin’s condition. Even though I’m not the kind of person who tans easily and my skin sometimes reacts to random cocktails of sunscreens, still, a beach outing never escapes my calendar. It’s always an enviable trip that’s worth all the heat and burns. I really hate how the salty sea water strips off moisture, resulting to dry spongy skin coupled with the harsh chemicals from sunblocks that I inevitably have to dab all over to prevent sunburns.

      I heard of L’Occitane’s Cupuaco products which


      were marketed to be natively produced from Brazil. I picked this cupuaco-based after-sun lotion, among many others, because of a simple inherent weakness for scents. The balm smells essentially of tropical flowers, slightly Mediterranean and the beach-y fragrance is too good to resist. The scent is very memorable to me since it brings back a lot of happy carefree days that I can strongly associate everything of and related to the beach.

        The buttery balm does not recondition my salt-drenched skin right away, but I think to a degree, it alleviates the faint stinging sensation you get after emerging from the waters.

The creamy formula reminds me of dry lotions and the fragrance is very engaging without a saccharine sweetness. I think it’s quite nourishing too.

        The balm has a thicker consistency similar to body butters with a soft texture but not runny. I know

        my skin is quite stubborn no matter how I sun bathe but it’s likely that I get red or a pinkish color. It usually takes days while using this balm to get my skin’s condition back to normal. This product is filled with Brazilian homey recipes especially Cupuacu which is derived from the fruit’s seed. It’s contained inside a plump plastic bottle devised with a secure cap. I believe it’s retailed for 22 dollars. This is the best scented post-sunscreen lotion I have used. Thus, the product gets my recommendation.
