3 Body Moisturisers You Need To Try
Taking an hour or two to have a little pamper is one of my favourite ways to unwind at the weekend, especially after a particularly stressful week at work (we all have them!). I have to admit though, I’m definitely more of a morning shower kind of girl, which is why I love to take a pamper session after a long and lazy lie-in.
I’m not particularly snobby when it comes to body moisturisers, usually reaching for whatever is top of the pile in my bodycare drawer, so I thought I’d share my favourite ones that won’t break the bank by any means.
Dr Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Body Souffle*
Holland & Barrett, £9.49
Now, I have to say, this is not what I expected at all. Being a girl who loves the smell of coconut, I knew I had to try this out and hopefully end up swanning around my bedroom smelling of coconut. Although this smells amazing, coconut is definitely not the scent that first comes to mind. The fruit extracts (mango, papaya, orange, lemon) are much stronger than the coconut, but in its own lovely way.
Scent aside, this ‘body souffle’, or moisturiser if we’re being real, is one you’ll definitely not regret adding to your pamper routine. After a good exfoliation, this stuff sinks right into your skin and leaves it feeling instantly hydrated and fresh. Oh and it’s full of organic and natural ingredients!
Yves Rocher Organic Oats Silky Cream*
Yves Rocher, £13.50
Yves Rocher are a brand that many of you might be unfamiliar with, as I was before I was sent a selection of their latest products. The one that stood out the most was their Organic Oats Silky Cream moisturiser, not only because of its different packaging but also because of its clean & fresh scent.
Although it has quite luxurious packaging, this is more of an everyday moisturiser that doesn’t require much time for it to sink into your skin. It’s also great for sensitive skin and feels very calming and gentle on the skin. They’re a French favourite, so I’m excited to test out some more of the range!
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream
Boots, £10.50 (full size)
I think we all have a Soap & Glory product lurking in our drawers somewhere and they’re definitely a brand I always look to for pampering products. In fact, their body moisturisers are my go-to moisturisers before a night out. When I need to smell amaaaazing and have silky soft legs, they’re always a winner.
I’ve always used their Righteous Butter, but ended up with two sets of 3 mini butters after Christmas, which included the Sugar Crush Body Buttercream. If you think S&G nailed it with The Righteous Butter, you obviously haven’t smelt this yet. It’s a zesty DREAM that makes your skin feel smooth but also smell of fresh limes long after you apply it to your skin. My only complaint is that I use it up way too quickly.
