Antica Farmacista Body Moisturizer Santorini Review

Even before I noticed, it’s almost Halloween time. The time when kids and adults go out and Trick or Treat for candy! It’s like watching a movie of the character, Jack Skellington. Anyways, it was just Fall! The weather definitely made my skin drier. But the good thing is, I found something that can overcome my dry skin.

Antica Farmacista’s Santorini Body Moisturizer is the one I adore.

Antica Farmacista only uses the finest essential oils and most natural ingredients in the world. They combine old world European design with modern cutting edge technology to bring us the most luxurious products. Being the newest addition to the brand, Antica Farmacista offers 12 signature scented body moisturizers.

Santorini essentially is a clasp between citrus and green notes as defined from their website:

“Santorini – Santorini is a medley of crisp citrus and green notes artfully paired with exotic spice and natural wood essences. Top notes of vibrant Italian bergamot sweet verbena and fresh vetyver are enhanced by the subtle sweetness of rosewood, warm sandalwood and aromatic cardamom.”

Let’s take a look at what is encapsulated in this body moisturizer… aloe vera, apricot kernel oil, green tea, fruity extracts, sweet almond oil, silk amino acids, proteins, shea butter, and honey! Apparently these are all hydrating and moisturizing agents.

The dispenser has a simple and elegant detail design. With one pump, it puts out just enough product for one area at a time. The consistency of the moisturizer is in between a lotion and a gel cream. I can really smell the sweet bergamot, but with a clean twist. It is crispy but also delicate. Initially I felt the consistency to be quite light and thought it wouldn’t be hydrating enough. But after smoothing it onto my skin, I just realized how wrong I was. A lot of body creams with richer heavier consistency, leave you feeling they’re moisturizing. But soon after you find yourself reapplying because the result doesn’t last. Antica’s body moisturizer is exactly the opposite. At first it feels super light, you almost doubt its effectiveness. Once you see it emulsifies beautifully and melts into the skin, you feel like you’re having a thin layer of silk over your body. You even see your skin glowing with radiance.

With a luxurious old world European appeal, Antica Farmacista lives up to its name. The brand knows how to mix the best ingredients to produce a product that is so superior that you will just want more. The moisturizer gives hours of silky smooth skin that you can feel. And best of all, it leaves you smell great all day. Definitely give it a try!

By the way, if you purchase anything from the Peonia, Gardenia & Rosa line during the month of October, 100% of the profits will be donated to Gilda’s Club in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.

      When I first came across this brand, I found their scent to be the best. It marks a fine living title.

    I have a diffuser from them. The products made by Antica are of high quality. It’s not something easily any brand can do. My husband was the one who first found out about this brand from a colleague of his and introduced it to me. I never look backed ever since.
