We know it’s technically not winter just yet, but we noticed our skin is in dire need of some TLC. Everyone experiences that day where their glowing smooth, summer tan fades and their dreary dry winter skin emerges. So we put together a list to help you navigate the expansive world of lotion. For the best results make body lotion a part of your daily routine — light a candle, listen to some tunes and protect your skin from the winds of winter.
With a name like “Body Hero” you can count on this lavish lotion to come to your rescue all winter long. If you really want to save your skin, start your routine in the shower with Glossier’s oil body wash.
You don’t need to break the bank to be smooth as a baby’s bottom. And this Nivea lotion proves just that. Head to your nearest drugstore, purchase this, and watch your skin transform.
It was hard for us to pick a favorite Soap and Glory product, but this one is up there. Pair this bad boy with any of their fantastic body scrubs and you’ll be sure to be silky smooth all winter long.
We just couldn’t possibly write a list of lotions and not include L’Occitane. This “Almond Smoothing and Beautifying Milk Concentrate” lives up to its name. Not only does it work wonders to aid dry skin, it smells delicious. All we need is an Almond Croissant and we’ll be in heaven.
What can we say? This has been a staple in every beauty junkies lineup for decades. Slather on this body butter, slip into some cozy pajamas, and binge that TV show you just can’t stop watching.
Last but certainly not least, Lush’s iconic, cult-favorite, and incredible “Dream Cream.” It’s in the name, this lotion melts into your skin and has you dreaming of smoother skin, but it’s not only a dream, it’s a reality.
