You may have gathered from some of my outfit posts, I’m a bit of a collector when it comes to tattoos (full sleeve + 4). Some I’ve had a lot longer then others, I got my first one at 19! It’s fair to say, even though modern tattoo methods and inks have come a long way in the last 20 years, that doesn’t mean to say tattoos still don’t fade over a period of time. This is mostly down to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Therefore its important to do what we can to protect our ink!
L’oreal Men Expert have released a new body lotion purely for the care of tattooed skin, the first of its kind I’ve come across. The lotion is enriched with the active ingredient, creatine which is supposed to help increase brightness, revive colour contrast and sharpen contours.
The moisturiser comes in a squeezy 200ml tube so application is very easy. The branding and look of the packaging is modern and edgy and is definitely something that would catch my eye.
For me, the lotion has a nice masculine fragrance and I found it absorbed well into my skin and didn’t feel greasy. After using the lotion, my tattoos definitely appeared brighter and the contrast improved. My skin also felt nourished and hydrated. I found that the brightness did improve gradually with more use i.e. using it everyday.
The RRP for the tattoo skin reviver is £7.99 and is available to buy from Boots. I feel it is quite reasonably priced in comparison to other leading body moisturisers available. Check out L’Oreal Men Expert for more information on where to purchase.
