If you utter the words 'body lotion' to the average person, you may hear some major grumbles as a response or simply a strange look which says 'What's that?'. In my many chats with fellow beauty bloggers, I usually find out that applying body lotion is one of the most boring beauty-related chores, or something that people just don't do. I, on the other hand, love body lotions. This is probably due to the fact that I have very dry skin, so moisturising it on a daily basis is second nature to me. On top of that, I just enjoy the pampering ritual of applying it after a shower or bath.
So to share my love of body lotions, I thought I'd do a post about the ones I'm using at the moment. At present, I have these eight open, which is frankly ridiculous and one of the many, many reasons why I'm partaking in the 100 Day Spending Ban! My justification is that they all serve different purposes (or something like that...):-
The Everyday Ones
For everyday, I mainly rotate between using Laidbare Butter Me Up*, Essyta Body Moisturising Lotion for Dry Skin* and Skin Blossom Organic Bloom Orange Flower Moisturising Body Lotion. All three of these sink into the skin quickly which is an absolute must when I'm running late in the mornings, and they keep my skin hydrated and happy throughout the day.
The Eczema Calming Ones
Every now and again I get plagued by eczema flare ups, so to soothe and calm everything down, I always reach for either Steamcream, Lavera All Round Cream or LUSH's Dream Cream. These really help and I've repurchased them several times now.
The Luxury / Pampering Ones
When I fancy a bit of pampering, I turn to either L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate or Neal's Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Body Lotion*. Both always leave me with silky soft skin that smells gorgeous!
