Ameliorate

Travel-Size Beauty Kit: The Best Products Under 100ml

 

  • I don’t know what I did before I discovered Victoria Health. Its co-founder Gill Sinclair is my oracle, introducing me to new and small beauty brands and health supplements for every complaint. I’ve never met her, but I religiously read her newsletter and buy everything she recommends. Gill loves Ameliorate body lotion, which was developed thanks to one woman’s dissatisfaction with her ‘chicken skin’. The main ingredient is lactic acid, a mild yet powerful exfoliator that keeps on working to get rid of dead cells long after you’ve rubbed your cream in. I never doubted Gill, but this is very, very good for dry skin. No more lizard legs, rough bumps are evened out and skin is noticeably softer to the touch. Personally, I prefer the fragrance-free version, as I don’t like my body lotion and perfume to clash.
