Comparing two Human Nature body scrubs.

Let’s be honest. With all the products I pile on to my face skin, sometimes (often) my body skin gets neglected. It’s just soap, body lotion, and a body scrub sometimes when I remember it and I’m not feeling lazy. Granted my body skin is not as problematic as my face skin, but it still needs some love, you know? It can get gross.

So my body skincare routine is just:

  • Any soap that’s in the bathroom, really. But I prefer the original Dove bar soap if it’s available.
  • Nivea body lotion. I really like the Intensive Moisture Body Milk.
  • Body scrubs, most likely from Human Nature.

So here we are. I think they have another body scrub variant, but I haven’t tried that, and I don’t want to.

I tried all of the Skin Watchers moisturizers.

DISCLAIMER: These products are part of a gratitude package from Skin Watchers and were given to me with no strings attached. I was not asked to review them, but I will anyway.

My journey in finding the perfect moisturizer has been a long one. Light but not too light that it won’t hydrate me enough, moisturizing but not too heavy to break me out, no silicones, and no drying alcohols. There’s enough hydrating gels available in the market, but most of them have silicones in the first few ingredients, and my face does not like that.

The Skin Watchers Green Snail Hydrating Gel has been my HG since I found it, and has only been recently replaced by the Intensive Cream version of it.

They also have the Whitening Water Drop and the reformulated Ceramizing Cream in their lineup, so let’s take a look at all of them.
