A Best Kept “Malibu Secret” in Body Care?

by JoyceyCouture on 29.Apr.2008 · 3 comments

From JoyceyCouture, guest blogger on Bionic Beauty:

I am a creature of habit and when I like something, I stick with it (especially when it smells like yummy coconut). So when Bionic Beauty asked me to test out Malibu Secret, I hesitated, yet finally agreed.

I’d rather opt for my trademark Hawaiian Tropic Lime Coolada Moisturizer any day than venture onto something new and… floral scented. You see, I am a Florida girl at heart. I thrive on fruity, tropical scents like cocoa butter and coconut.

After several sleepless nights, and nightmares of the Lubriderm alligators under my bed, I pushed my Hawaiian Tropic staple to the back of the cabinet (out of sight, out of mind- right?) and flipped open the Malibu Secret cap.

Promptly thereafter, closing it due to floral scent overload; jasmine, old rose, and gardenia.. oh my!

I jump online to revisit the website MalibuSecret.com, needing a refresher on why I’m trying out this product again.
The “secret” ingredient is the breakthrough THYMULEN 4™. A highly purified, biomimetic peptide that stimulates the skin’s immune defenses and regenerates the epidermal profile while helping the skin regain its youthful appearance.

In a world of 904 diet pills that hit the market daily, promising a 25 pound weight loss in a day, I decide to continue reading.

The lotion is formulated with shea, cocoa, and macadamia butters, green tea, aloe vera, phospholipids, soy, sodium hyaluronate and brown algae.
Brown algae?!

After I shower and relax a bit with a much needed glass of wine, I decide to bite the Bionic bullet and open the tube again to actually use the product.

I fall asleep and then, I again apply it in the morning to put the lotion to the ultimate test: Malibu Secret versus South Florida Humidity. I must say, the Malibu Secret lotion won! I never once felt greasy; just softer and smoother.

Looking back- the night of lotion mayhem was two months ago and I’ve been using the product ever since! What changed? I eventually overlooked the fact that the product didn’t smell as beachy as the tube looks and realized how great the product simply was. (Perhaps I should also use this new insight to look back at my past relationships?)

I have seen a noticeable change in how my skin feels and looks, just as creators Katie and Erik Anderson promised. A facial quality, anti-aging lotion designed for the body. And one that is green! The packaging is recyclable and the lotion is non-animal tested.

The chemistry of ingredients will truly hook you. The 7.25oz tube of skin delight runs you $25, but worth every hard earned penny and can easily be bought online. In your pjs! More info: Order 3 or more tubes and it’s free shipping!

Sounds like a wonderful body lotion and without an overwhelming fragrance and eco-friendly too. Great review JC!
