Burt's Bees Carrot Nutritive Body Lotion Review
This is pretty good. It's quite a runny texture, but does moisturise well, and leaves skin feeling smooth and plump, but it does take a while to sink in fully and leaves skin feeling slightly tacky to the touch for a while if I apply too much. I do think it had a soothing effect on skin that had been in the sun; I didn't burn (or even tan much) as I always use sun protection on any exposed bits on sunny days, but even with protection I find that skin can feel a bit parched by the end of a hot, sunny day (and we got one or two of those, even in Suffolk).
It has quite a nice neutral scent; not really floral or citrus, sort of milky-earthy, but in a very clean way, and it didn't interfere with my fragrance.
There is a warning on the bottle that the lotion can stain clothes (it's naturally a yellow/orange shade from the ingredients) so you might want to exercise caution if you wear a lot of white or beige, or if you have pale furnishings your skin might touch. If I was buying at this price point and had access to online resource/was shopping in London, I would purchase the Evolve Radiance Boost Smoothing Cream I reviewed previously (that post is here), but if that wasn't an option, I could live with the Burt's Bees.
