lo·tion (lshn)

I’ve been using body lotion since I was 6 and living in South Africa. It started out as a solution to the dry weather over there but soon became a habit/ritual (call it what you will). But having performed this ritual for over 20 years has its perks. My skin is a lot softer, healthier and survives the furies of Winter with a lot more grace. I have used many brands of lotion over the 20 years and have decided to document my lotion journey here.
