Light Gift Lotion

    Introduction

    This lotion is fluid, easily absorbed with minimal residue, gives the skin a velvety feel, and is light enough to be used on the body or the face. It won t be a great foot moisturizer due to the light feel and quick absorption, but it does work wonders on hot and sweaty skin.
