NEW AND IMPROVED FORMULA! Feed your skin’s soul daily with this sumptuous, lightweight Moisturising Lotion from Mbiri, packed with what makes your skin smooth, hydrated and vital. The Mbiri range is inspired by wild-harvested Namibian Myrrh, Omumbiri, which the local Himba women have used in their cosmetics for ages past. Marula oil, high in fatty acids, and Kalahari melon seed oil, full of phytosterols and Omega-6, are traditional African beauty secrets your skin will love. A fragrant bouquet of Namibian Myrrh, fresh citrus oils and Rose geranium create a nourishing aromatic balm that will put you in mind of the clean, earthy open spaces of Africa.

I bought this a while ago bit still can't get used to the smell, it smells a bit like khakibos to me. Other than that though an excellent moisturizing cream.

Lovely cream. Great for winter as it is quite thick.
08/10/2019, By Tessa
Really lovely product.
04/10/2019, By Maureen
Love this. I have the lotion, matching oil and body wash and they are the only ones I buy. I love the subtle perfume, it works well and is a reasonable price.

I was looking for a lotion that was moisturising, natural, cruelty free and vegan. The Mbiri Hydrating Body Lotion ticked all these boxes. However, I have tried other Mbiri products and they were pretty average. After reading the positive reviews, I gave it a shot
and I'm so glad I did. This is THE BEST body lotion. It is rich, non-greasy, well priced and smells great. I am so impressed with this product ! I'm definitely going to keep using it.

This moisturiser sinks in beautifully and is very hydrating
09/07/2019, By K
Top quality moisturiser that feels luxurious and smells divine
23/06/2019, By Essib
One of the best in the market. I have used a variety body butters, but this cream beats them hand down. Its very moisturizing without being greasy. I have normal to dry skin and this is a great product for summer and winter months. It does have a very unique earthy smell but wouldn't deter me from buying it. Well worth it

Moisturising and healing. This Namibian myrrh is potent with lots of uses.
03/11/2018, By Kathryn
This lotion has such a beautiful smell and it really hydrates your skin. Would highly recommend.

Recieved this as a sample. My mom loved it so much I had to buy it for her
07/07/2018, By Saad
It's very nourishing for dry skin. Unfortunately I don't like the myrhh scent which is way too strong and lingers. The myrhh scent in the body wash on the other hand is subtle and perfect.
05/04/2018, By Marlene
Lovely light and absorbent, love the smell but unfortunately it fades away far too quickly.
16/10/2017, By Jenny
Texture is nice but I really didn't like the smell. I also didn't find it very hydrating.
06/10/2017, By Tracey
After getting the sample, I had to buy the full size product. It smells lovely and really moisturises.
01/10/2017, By Katja
Wow seems wonderful. Great to see so many vegan options
24/09/2017, By Soozee
I have been using this cream for the last 3 months, starting in the middle of Winter when my skin was at its driest and unhappiest. I find it to be incredibly moisturing. It is absorbed so beautifully and a small amount is very effective..
13/09/2017, By kylie
I like this moisturiser. It isn't sticky and has a nice natural smell.
24/08/2017, By Tara
I've been struggling with dehydrated skin for as long as I can remember, been around the block trying various methods and products and I have to say that I'm absolutely LOVING Mbiri! It's super light and absorbent, leaving my skin soft and silky.

23/06/2017, By Maureen
This stuff is beyond amazing. I have been using organic vegan creams for some years now and in the winter nothing really works. I have to use cream five or six times a day to stop scratching due to how dry my skin gets on the highveld. I also bought the matching body wash and for the first time, one use of the cream after showering with the body wash and no itching whatsoever. Will never use anything else. It smells great, goes in really quickly and easily and you don't use much. Oh my... is there such a thing as a perfect product? If so this and the body wash are very high on that list!
30/04/2017, By Nandine
I was worried that a 200ml would not last long for my dry skin at all but such a small amount of this product goes such a long way. It moisturizes my skin and hands so well and feels very luxurious. The only thing that I don't like about this product is the smell but luckily it fades quite quickly.
06/03/2017, By Tam
What a great product - hydrating and subtle with a soft silky texture. I also love the story behind this product!
16/02/2017, By Glynis
Wow, this is the body lotion I have been searching for! Healthy for my skin, a delicate and delicious scent and its light but also keeps my skin feeling supple and soft. I highly recommend this fantastic product! Thank- you !
27/11/2016, By Yvette
Lovely soft pleasant smell, rich and creamy. I love this product!
03/05/2016, By Meghan
This lotion is fantastic - it soaks straight into the skin and has this unique addictive fragrance that I just can get enough of. I use it on my babies as I know it is completely natural and safe and has no hidden ingredients in it!
15/03/2016, By Bulelwa
Ive been looking for this kind of body lotion. Not only is it sweet and aromatic, it also does wonders for my skin. My skin feels so smooth. Will buy again and again.
07/03/2016, By Michelle
I received a free sample of this lotion with my last order - what a treat! I managed to moisturise my entire body from head to toe with this tiny 5ml sample! A little goes a looooong way!

Smells great, is cruelty-free, vegan, not too runny, not sticky and really nourishes my dry, eczema-prone skin without irritation. Just wonderful.
03/12/2015, By Carla
Had to come review this divine product!
Very impressed with the consistency - not too thick or thin.
Love how it feels, absorbs and hydrates my skin.
But absolutely most in love with the smell!!
13/11/2015, By Surita
Got this as a gift from a friend (Masadi) and this is THE best body moisturizer EVER! I really never want to have to go without this lotion ever. I have really dry skin and this is the first lotion that just completely does it for me on all fronts - not oily, not runny, not sticky; just silky smooth with a lovely aroma - just perfect!!
27/09/2015, By Verena
Economical and nourishing enough in the warmer parts of the year. In winter I would prefer something a little more nourishing.
Do not like the smell too much, but its not overbearing. All in all quite satisfied with the product
17/08/2015, By Masadi
This is the best natural body lotion Ive ever used. The satiny consistency spreads and absorbs like a dream and leaves my skin moisturised without being sticky. Good price, too!

Just got back from Namibia and bought this product there. Did wonders for my dry skin in the desert and smells delicious!
