All year around our skin can be dehydrated or dry, not just on the face but on the body too. I do use body lotion or cream all year round. It doesn’t just hydrates and moisturizes the skin but it lifts up your mood too. After all, who wants skin that feels like sandpaper!
Here are some of my favourites:
REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Lotion is a light formula lotion. It has a beautiful, light and delicate rose scent. It doesn’t smell old-fashioned in any way. It absorbs easily into the skin, doesn’t feel greasy or sticky and leaves the skin feeling hydrated and silky.
L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate is another light formula cream but in a pot rather than a tube. It hydrates nicely, the skin feels so smooth and nourishes the skin as well. No greasiness and stickiness either. It has a nutty scent as well which is subtle and not to overbearing.
Clarins Eau Des Jardins Smoothing Body Cream has one thing I like. A beautiful citrus scent which uplifts you and your mind. The light weight formula absorbs easily into the skin and hydrates perfectly. Non sticky and non greasy as well. The skin feels so smooth and the scent is much stronger than the previous two but not to sickly either.
Neal’s Yard Geranium & Orange Body Lotion is another light weight formula and full of essential oils as you would expect from Neals Yard. It absorbs easily but there is a stickiness on the skin so you do need to rub it in a bit longer than the others. It feels so smooth though and the skin feels moisturized and the scent is floral and herbal so may not be for everyone. If you love natural body care, you will love it anyway.
Patisserie De Bain Cranberries & Cream is the most reasonable priced body lotion here but don’t let that fool you into thinking that it can’t be good! The smell is like a candy shop, in a good way of course! The formula is light weight, you do need to work it in longer than others. There is a slight stickiness but the skin feels hydrated and smooth. If you don’t mind a stronger scent, you will like this.
Korres Almond Cherry Body Milk was bought on the recommendation from Sali Hughes in her column in a magazine. I was impressed by one of Korre’s other body milks so I had to choose this one. This is 92.3% natural. This is another light weight formula and hydrates effortlessly on the skin. The smell is gorgeous, full of vibrant cherries. I can happily bath in this cream!
I couldn’t choose just one as a favourite, they are all special and different in their ways. I love each and every one of them!
