Disrobe Body Lotion
Really wanted to like this but
I really wanted to like this product, but I hate the scent - it smells like cheap boiled sweets. I didn't find it particularly pleasurable to use, and the results weren't great either. It's expensive too.

The skin you've always dreamt of
I've always had lacklustre skin on my body partially due to the fact that the strict facial regimen I have does not extend past my neck!
This has resulted in dull skin which even after buffing and fake tan application is always just patchy and on bad days a little scaly!
Enter Sunday Riley's disrobe lotion - this is the only lotion I've found which has an effective concentration of AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids - like you get from a facial peel.) Disrobe lotion contains lactic acid (8-10%) which has been proven to be an effective chemical exfoliant - letting you shed that dull surface layer of skin much more effectively than you could with buffing alone. This along with a good helping of urea work to soften and smooth dry damaged and neglected skin. It also contains Sunday Riley's famous NV-5 Ageless Complex which is chock full of antioxidants which help to negate those careless days in the sun you may have indulged in over the summer!
Now to how it feels: it's a lovely rich lotion which spreads easily and sinks in quickly so you can get dressed straight away if you're strapped for time - it doesn't leave a glowy sheen or residue on the skin like say creme de corps but my skin feels well hydrated none the less. It's fragrance free but there's maybe a slight tang to it that you'd expect from an AHA. I had no irritation at all even on the usually sensitive areas under my arms.
Results: I must admit that I forgot to check until about 3 weeks of continuous use. I was about to put fake tan on and I noticed the scaliness around my shins was completely gone and my knees were smooth. On further inspection the areas of pigmentation from old acne scars around my chest were almost invisible (I usually use concealer on them, I haven't had to since using this) and my keratosis pilaris (chicken skin) on my arms was much improved - it's still there, but unless you stick your nose to my arm you can't see it!
Conclusion: I never want to stop using this, the price tag although scary when I first bought it, is completely worth it for me - I spent my first summer in sleeveless tops and I wasn't continuously slathering on lotion to hide my scaly calves! I can't recommend this product enough and may find myself becoming a little bit of a Sunday Riley fan girl if the rest of the products are like this!

Can't recommend this product enough
I have horribly dry skin that clearly hasn't been helped by stupidly cold weather and continuous central heating for what feels like the last 6 years!
This product is truly amazing. It has a delicious smell, sinks in quickly but then leaves the softest skin ever.
This may be fairly expensive but for me it absolutely delivered the results it claimed to deliver and I will definitely re-purchase.
