I suffer from very dry skin all year round but like most people it’s a little worse as the weather gets colder. These are the four body lotions / butters I have been using.
Nip & Fab Mango Smoothie Dry Skin Fix Body Butter 200ml
I am sad to say this scent has been discontinued but Nip & Fab have released lots of new scents that sound amazing. This Mango one smells fresh and fruity. Its a thick orange butter that takes some massaging in but its worth the effort as this leaves my skin silky smooth, smelling fresh and keeps it hydrated.
Dove Shape Up Firming Body Cream 250ml £3.99
I have quite a few wobbly bits so not too sure how well this is firming me up but I don’t ever think a cream can do too much in that department. I think exercise is the only true way of toning. But this lotion is good for keeping my skin feeling smooth and isn’t as thick as the body butters. It is easy to apply but takes some time to sink in, it has a light floral scent but nothing overpowering. I wouldn’t apply this in the morning or you will be left feeling a little sticky. I do like this lotion but not sure it is at the top of my list to re purchase.
Soap & Glory Butter Yourself 300ml £10.50
Always a firm favourite for lots of people, you get a hefty pot and this stuff seems to last me a very long time. Its good for slapping all over the body and I love using it when I have shaved my legs. I am sure you know it smells lovely and sweet. These tubs make lovely Christmas gifts and I always have one or two under the tree each year.
By far the best body lotion I have ever used. Big claims! It is true, I love love love the packaging. The pump makes it easy to use & hygienic. The lotion is quite thin and absorbs quickly, it is hydrating and can I just take a moment to tell you how incredible it smells. It’s Fig scent is so luxurious and grown up, i am obsessed with it. I can smell it on my skin throughout the day & I keep meaning to buy the body spray they sell in this same scent. I am excited at the mere thought of owning that. If you get a chance to visit the & Other Stories Store in London then you must smell this Fig range! Adore this lotion – that is all.
