The cold dreary winter months are finally behind us and I'm ever so ready to swap my warm woolies for summer dresses, singlets and shorts. Luckily I've been diligently moisturizing my body day and night keeping it in tip top condition so I can bare some skin. Here are five of my favourite body lotions...
Urban Rituelle Equilibrium Hand and Body lotion - the divine scent of mandarin, basil and lime was what first drew me to this product but it actually does so much more than smell nice. It contains argan oil which deeply nourishes the skin, leaving it hydrated, while cucumber and chamomile extracts help to calm and soothe the skin.
The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Lotion - I've been hooked on lotions from The Body Shop ever since I was a teenager and this one is my current favourite. It smells like fresh peaches and I like it so much I tend to use it after a shower with the Vineyard Peach shower gel to layer on the delicious scent. It glides on skin, leaving it soft and smooth.
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturiser - I was stoked when Jergens first became available in Australia a couple of years ago. After reading about it on numerous beauty blogs, I just wanted to try for myself to see what the fuss was about...and I was not disappointed at all. My go-to product in the cold months when my skin is at its driest, this heavy duty moisturiser has a thick consistency yet is absorbed quickly so skin never feels flaky or dry.
Emma Organics Nourishing Body Milk - I keep this in the living room and use it on my hands all the time, when I'm watching TV or typing away on the laptop. It's non-greasy and effective in hydrating even the most sensitive of skins. Its vegan-friendly, cruelty, palm oil and gluten free formula makes it an ethical choice for those seeking a chemical free product.
