I spotted these Natralia Nourish Naturals products at Watsons and decided to give them a shot even though I no longer suffer from any skin issues now. I like the fact that they do not contain any sulfates, parabens, fragrances or artificial colors and I wanted to find out how they fare compared to Ego QV Wash & Skin Lotion as they are said to be formulated for dry, sensitive, rough, itchy or flaking skin as well as skin prone to eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
Natralia Nourish Naturals Dry Skin Wash and Lotion are made from naturally derived ingredients including a Xerophyte plant extract, known for its immediate hydration ability. Although it was not indicated on the packaging, but I also found the products to be pH balanced upon testing them with pH test strips.

Natralia Nourish Naturals Dry Skin Wash is a mild and soap free formula that thoroughly cleanses, without stripping the skin of its essential oils. It kind of reminds me of Cetaphil as it does not lather up and has a very mild scent. The hydration isn’t very apparent to me but I noticed that my arms are not as dry after bathing with this. I also tried using this Natralia Nourish Naturals Dry Skin Wash on my face and I was quite pleased with how cleaned my face felt without coming across as taut or drying. I can’t say I love this but I forsee myself using this sometimes and perhaps using it on my boy too.

Okay, I gotta say I like this quite a lot! Like the Natralia Nourish Naturals Dry Skin Wash, this lotion is made from naturally derived ingredients including the Xerophyte plant extract, and is stated to provide intensive moisturizing. The lotion looks thick and creamy but yet, is not greasy upon application. In fact, it dries up pretty quickly. Hence, only a small quantity is required to moisturize. Unlike Ego QV Skin Lotion that comes with dimethicone, Natralia Nourish Naturals Dry Naturals Skin Lotion comes with beewax and hence, I did not use it on my face. I have to say that Ego QV lotion feels more hydrating upon application, and makes my skin feel smoother. However, I like this Natralia Nourish Naturals lotion better because of its formulation. But bear in mind that I currently do not have much skin issues except that my arms are pretty dry after showering and this lotion does a decent job of keeping them comfortably moisturized without leaving a sticky residue.

You might like Natralia Nourish Naturals Dry Skin products if you are suffering from minor skin conditions and like your products to be more naturally formulated. However, I suspect that those with more serious skin troubles and who have tried other products such as those from Ego QV might find this range to be average in terms of performance. I say this because my husband, who is an avid Ego QV user told me so. Personally, I like the Natralia Nourish Naturals Dry Skin Lotion quite a bit though because my skin is behaving quite properly now and I think it does a better job than my current body lotion as the hydration last as long as I do not wash the lotion off. So I would recommend this to those looking for an affordable body lotion and do not mind that it is scent-free.
