Rain Africa Biologie Hand & Body Lotion

Ok so no I have not been lucky enough to receive one of those large perfectly packaged packages from Rain Africa yet, but when I opened my gift bag at the #CPTBloggerMeetUP I was so excited to see one of their full sized products inside. I had to restrain myself from opening it then and there!!

A little bit about the company: Rain Africa is a South African company situated in Swellendam but also have affiliates in New York. They specialize in creating handmade bath and body products as well as hand crafted home ware using only natural ingredients with African origins. Rain products are responsibly handmade with love and care for all their customers, craftspeople and the environment.

About the Biologie Range: Biologie products are eco-ethical, biodegradable, environment-friendly products designed to care for hair, feet and hands. This range is multi-tasking designed to help protect the skin from sun damage and delays ageing, revives skin tone, smooths skin texture and restores vital moisture to tired skin and hair. Some of the key ingredients include organic oils from indigenous African plants high in vitamins and omega fatty acids to nourish and protect the skin against free radical damage.

Biologie Hand & Body Lotion Review:  As a hand lotion I absolutely love this product, it has a really hydrating, light weight texture that is soaked into the skin really quickly. It doesn't leave any greasy residue behind and moisturizes the skin from the first application. After I do dishes or clean I am normally left with really dry hands and I have been using this cream almost everyday and it takes the dryness away immediately and doesn't come back once the lotion has worn off. The only thing that I would fault this lotion on is the scent, it has a really strong herbal scent that reminds me of a chemist. The scent is so strong that I am now not allowed to use it around my husband, but the upside is once you rub it in the scent disappears really quickly so what he doesn't know wont hurt him hahaha I also love that it comes in a pump bottle because when I am busy it makes it easy to pump and carry on with what I am doing.

You can pick this lotion up for R99,00 at any one of their stores at Cavendish, Somerset Mall, V&A Waterfront or Willowbridge or you can shop online.

  1. I have one of their hand butters and although I do love everything about it and it works great, the smell is...yucky.

    1. i am in the same boat the hand lotion is amazing just the smell is a major thing for me

      Thanks for the comment xoxo

  2. Great post! I agree the scent isn't as fruity or nice smelling as some other brands BUT it does smell really earthy to me. And like you say the scent doesn't linger so I have no problem using it. Mine is a butter though so I use it mostly at night when I go to bed.
