I have a selection of Ua lotions. Although Kukui is my favorite for the light scent, my second go-to is Niu... because sometimes you want a scent, but not too floral. All the lotions do a fantastic job: rich and creamy, and yet light on the skin, they soak right in, and work even days after. Would love to have the non-florals in travel size!
On a recent trip back home, I realized I didn't pack my Niu lotion. Luckily, a retail store Na Mea, located in Ward Village, carried UA products. I was able to get a bottle for my stay. Niu is what I use daily when I'm not using the body butter or botanical skin repair. A little goes a long way and it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a residue like some commercial lotions. I use to think this one coconut lotion was great but I was so wrong! It is full of additives that I can't even pronounce! Niu is amazing! All natural and made with aloha!
This lotion is rich and creamy but not dense. My skin retains moisture without feeling sticky. The fragrance brings me back to North Kohala every morning.
I first picked up the Niu coconut lotion at the new Foodland Kahala Market in their Hawaii-grown display and am now a devoted fan. The scent is lovely and light... just enough to give you a pleasant whiff. The lotion itself is light, not cloying and sticky as so many lotions are. Both the scent and the lightness make this an ideal nighttime lotion, and in addition, I wake up with softly moisturized and hydrated skin. My experience buying the lotion on the website was super simple and I even got a thank you! Refills are available and I understand that refills will also soon be available at Kaimuki's Keep It Simple store. Wonderful product; wonderful people behind it.
