My skin is really sensitive, particularly on my face, so I tend to really stick with what I know when it comes to my skincare. St. Ives is a brand that I trust, and I love how their products are all natural. In a recent trip to the drug store, I picked up one of their lotions (Naturally Smooth: Natural Fruit AHA Complex). I was surprised by my experience.

Also as promised, it isn’t greasy and it’s fast-absorbing. This product claims to be gentle for sensitive skin; however, I would not recommend this product for sensitive skin.
This particular lotion irritated my skin really badly. My skin was red and quite itchy. One bad experience hasn’t turned me against the company; there are other products that don’t give me any problems at all. If you have sensitive skin, I would recommend St. Ives Advanced Therapy Lotion, Vitamin E as your daily moisturizer. If extreme sensitivity isn’t a problem for you, here are some pros and cons:
- Absorbs quickly
- Great moisturizing
- Not greasy
- Nice slight scent
- May increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and greater your chance of sun burn (disclaimer on the back of the bottle).
