Now You Can Moisturize Your Entire Body With Hyaluronic Acid

The wonder hydration ingredient for your face is now in a Body Gel from Nip + Fab.

Nip + Fab Hyaluronic Fix Body Gel

Finally, body lotions are getting more hi-tech!

It used to be that you could only find hyaluronic acid in products for the face. But now, Nip + Fab has come out with a Hyaluronic Fix Body Gel that is basically the ultimate non-greasy body moisturizer. (Because is anything more annoying than oily, buttery legs as you go to put your clothes on in the morning?)

The texture of this product is, like it says, a gel. A translucent gel that sinks in rapidly and leaves your skin dry, smooth and soft—surprisingly so, as you wouldn't think a gel would moisturize at all.

But it does. And that's in part from the hyaluronic acid, long considered a wonder ingredient in skincare. By now, you've probably heard all about its benefits. Not an acid in the stinging, exfoliating way, it's actually a naturally-occurring polysaccharide found in the human body that acts as a cushioning and lubrication agent for our joints, nerves, hair, skin and eyes. In skincare products, we get the synthetic form, whose molecules have the unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times their weight in water. 

As I outlined here, I've had mixed results with hyaluronic acid serums for my face. But in a body formula? Yes, please! Besides the hyaluronic acid, there's glycerin (my favourite humectant), vitamin E and aloe vera. And NO crappy, questionable oils. These are the ingredients:

Aqua (Water), Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, Triethanolamine, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Parfum (Fragrance), Disodium EDTA, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzyl Salicylate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Linalool, Coumarin, Geraniol, Trideceth-7, Citronellol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract

Will this body gel be enough to prevent scaly legs during the harsh Canadian winter? It remains to be seen, but so far I'm loving the texture of this—not to mention how I can get dressed right away in the mornings. If your skin gets very dry, you could always layer it under a body oil for an extra hit of moisture, just like you'd layer your facial skincare products.
