What’s the first thing we do when coming out all fresh and scrubbed clean from the shower? After drying ourselves with fluffy towels, of course. Why, moisturize! It’s important to keep all that radiant skin hydrated from head to toe. While it may seem tedious, it certainly doesn’t have to be — especially with all those luscious lotion options out there to choose from. Here are our favorite post-shower body lotions!
Body butters tend to be super rich in texture which often leaves skin feeling greasy, even hours after it’s been applied. Kiehl’s has a solution to feeling like a overly-lubricated lovely, and it’s with their Creme de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Body Butter. The whipped texture makes it ultra-hydrating without being dense and it absorbs wonderfully! We love it’s heavenly scent too.
Gerlain’s body milk is the stuff of beauty gods. It’s beautifully scented (we would expect no less – this is Guerlain we are talking about after all) and the texture is so light it almost appears to melt away on contact with your skin. Don’t let the lightness fool you though – this lotion will leave your skin softer than a newborn.
Perfect for dry and cracked skin, Greenaby’s Rose Geranium Hand + Body lotion is not only intensive, but also smells like a dream. Rose with chocolate undertones, to be specific. Made in from all natural ingredients and based out of Canada, it happens to be all-organic too. Win!
We might not have heard of Yu-Be here in North America, but over in Japan it’s one of their most trusted skincare brands! And with good reason. Free of sulphates and synthetics, their Moisturizing Body Cream in their original formula is pure and effective enough to use everyday.
A fantastic drugstore alternative, Burt’s Bee’s has amassed a cult following for their highly useful products. Their Body Lotion is no exception with its sweetly scented lotion containing milk, honey and vitamin E. As with all their products, it’s 99% natural, and made in the USA. We love us some Burt’s Bees.
