I am one of those people who have an oily/combo face but very dry body, so sometimes after shower, especially in colder months, my skin can get very uncomfortably dry and I hate that feeling. Luckily, I seem to belong to a rare species who actually enjoys using lotions and body butters so I go through ridiculous amounts of them and have moisturising firmly embedded in my evening routine. I like to feel comfortable in my skin and feeling dry is anything but, not to mention some of the body products smell soo heavenly that they’re good enough to eat, and the scent lingers for a long time. All I need afterwards is a warm bathrobe, a cup of tea and Netflix and my evening is sorted…so adventurous, I know..
Anyway, here is my top 5 body lotions and body butters that I use most often, all of which have been repurchased more than twice because they are just simply that good. What they all have in common is they keep my skin soft and comfortable for long after use, some are on a heavier side in terms of consistency, others are lighter, but all absorb quickly enough and don’t leave my skin feeling sticky. They also cover various price points, from very affordable, to almost ridiculously expensive.
