When I used the pharmacy brands, I had to be more generous with my application of the product which meant I had to replace the bottle faster. The lotion did not penetrate as deep, so my skin appeared dull and lacked radiance. Also, the artificial fragrance often lingered in the air and was very potent on my skin which made me experience many headaches. Whereas when I used Éminence’s body lotion, my skin was way smoother because of the organic hydrating ingredients. My elasticity returned which made my skin appear firm and tight, and it also appeared extremely plump and luscious. Furthermore, the lotion itself distributed very nicely, I didn’t have to overuse the product.
