As you may know I like body lotions, butters and creams. So here is a new review on body product Urtekram Body Lotion Nordic Birch.
As it’s not a known brand all over the world I decided to include a description from their official site.
If you want to know about lotion just skip this part:).

Urtekram Body Lotion Nordic Birch (certified organic, 100% natural origin)
Let’s start with minuses
Scent: I was running around supermarket and decided to grab this lotion as I saw it before but didn’t buy it. I was sure I’m taking Rose one but instead I grabbed Nordic Birch! BIIIIRCH!!! If you like very natural scents you will like it…may be :). It’s not nasty as I wouldn’t finish it in this case but it’s not pleasant scent. Plus that it doesn’t stay long on body. There are other scents (rose, coconut, unscented).
Texture: Everything is good about texture of this lotion. It’s not runny, not too thick. The minus is that this texture doesn’t work well with a pump when you are left with 3 cm of the lotion. If you look inside a bottle, lotion stays near walls of bottle when it stops pumping cream. You need to get it with a tube of a pump or to try to shake it really hard so lotion goes to the right place again.
And now let’s see pluses:
Texture : It’s light so it absorbs fast and thick enough to provide good moisturizing-nourishing properties.
Effect: It’s very good. May be it’s not enough for very dry skin but for moderately dry (can I use word moderately here?) it’s good. I can especially see effect on the back of my arms. When skin is not moisturized properly it stops being smooth there.
Price is ok… 55-60 kr = ~8 euros
