Ouch. Just looked at Kuumba Made Body Lotion, (Patchouli, 6 fl oz) on amazon. It's £40!
@lagartija - Before I blow money on the wrong product can I just check that this is what you meant?
@JohnB - The video is very good (thanks) but she doesn't cover my situation. I'd say my nails are healthy, not brittle or dry but too inflexible.
On their website it has the patchouli for $3.74 for the small size and $8.78 for the large (6.75 oz). I read that the shipping charge to the UK is $34!!!
So the problem is the transport, I’m afraid. I’m sure you can get something made in the EU or UK that will work just as well.
Water, lavender flower water, vegetable glycerin, stearic acid, myristyl myristate, cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, ceteareth-20, shea butter, sunflower seed oil, jojoba seed oil, cetyl alcohol, calendula oil, passion fruit seed oil, rice bran oil,açaí palm fruit oil, phenoxyethanol, fragrance oil, ethylhexylglycerin.
Mostly water and a variety of oils with additive that keep it stable in suspension.
People have different skin types, and some formulations work better than others for a particular skin type. I have an olive Mediterranean complexion and find that the glycerin-based formulations sink in, but mineral oil formulations just sit on the surface and make me greasy. My husband is of Swedish descent and those mineral oil based formulations are just what he needs. So go to the moisturizer section of the store and find a small bottle of each type. Once you find which one sinks in better, try a different brand until you find one you really like.
