Having silky smooth skin is something that every beauty buff strives to achieve. And when summer rolls around, and skirts, shorts and sleeveless tops are back into our every day wardrobe, the need for flawless skin is even greater. So to help you say goodbye to dry skin, here are five of the best body lotions and moisturisers...
Best natural body lotion: Natural Instinct Body Lotion
Ideal for: those who prefer to use natural products. The lotion uses a combination of organic extracts including chamomile, rosehip, lavender and grape.
You say: “Natural Instinct Body Lotion smells great but isn't overpowering. It has worked great on my dry winter skin, it goes on thick but is great to put on at night and wake up with soft skin. I will definitely be using this product again and trying others from their range.” –Carly443
Best in-shower body lotion: NIVEA In-Shower Rich Body Lotion
Ideal for: people who are time poor or tend to forget about moisturising. Yep, the name isn’t a typo, it’s a moisturiser designed for use in the shower.
You say: “I wanted something luxurious but that wouldn't take up any more of my busy time and NIVEA In-Shower Rich Body Lotion is perfect for me. Lasts ages and as it’s kept in the shower bay I can’t forget to moisturise daily and I actually can tell the difference. I will be buying this again and again.” -gatsbygirl
