For a while there I was really neglecting my body moisturiser, choosing to jump straight into my PJ's at night rather than dose up on some much needed moisture on the bod. Now I'm back and being a good beauty blogger (but hiding from our puppy Charlie who loves annoyingly licking lotion from my arms!!) These are the five body moisturisers in my arsenal that really come up trumps.
1.The Summer One
Evodia seem to excel at making summery, delicious smelling scents. This Mango and Pink Grapefruit lotion* is perfect for a hot summer day because it sinks in with ease, providing light hydration without feeling dense or heavy on the limbs. It's not incredibly moisturising but I find that summertime negates the need for heavy moisture all the time for me.
2.The Luxe One
I'm not sure what it is about L'Occitane, but I'm yet to try a mediocre product from the brand! I adore their Almond range immensely (the shower oil is my everything!) but this Pivoine Flora Beauty Milk* is all about the peony and since they will be in my wedding bouquet, my love for this stuff has grown lately! It sinks in SO fast, and smells luxurious and pretty all at once.
3.The Trendy One
You've surely noticed the hype around 'oil' at the moment - whether it be for face, skin or the bod, more brands are coming out with oil based products all the time. Garnier sent me a bundle of their new goodies a while back, and holy goodness they have impressed me. The Garnier Nourishing Oil* is a quick and easy way to inject moisture in a speedy way, but my bet is still on the scrub from this range to fly off the shelves fastest (it's amazing!)
4.The Lazy Gal's One
The idea behind the Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner* is pretty cool - slather it on after washing your bod in the shower (think of it as the hair conditioner for the skin) and then rinse off. I love the idea that it negates the need for a separate moisturiser after your shower, but I'll be honest and say that I use the teensiest bit as an intense body butter instead of its intended purpose and love how strong the scent is (and how long it lasts, too!)
5.The Best One
Desert island quality, this one! Victoria's Secret Amber Romance Body Lotion is other worldly and something I already have a backup of - the scent couldn't be any better for me, with rich crème anglaise and amber mingling together to create a warm and sexy vibe that slays me every single time.
As you can clearly see, unscented moisturisers just aren't my thing (ha!) so if you like a nice scented body moisturiser, I'd highly suggest trying out these 5 stunners!
