My holy grail body creams
I thought I would share with you my favourite body lotions, a little random I guess but Im just obsessed with body lotions, its summertime when I like to smell all fruity and I love finding one thats just right for me with a lovely smell so I thought maybe this could help some fellow body lotion-obsessors!
Palmers Cocoa butter formula
They say: 'Softens, smoothes and relieves dry skin, heps smooth and blend unattractive marks and scars'
I have used this body butter for years! I think I first started using it when I was about 14, It is inexpensive and the whole range from them is just amazing for the price you pay. This cream is very thick so may be better for winter for that reason but it is amazingly moisturising and has a cocoa, sweet smell which I would say is quite strong but they also do a fragrance free version. This would be great for people with dry/very dry skin, or people who get dry knees and elbows. It is quite heavy though on the skin which may be the only drawback.
Soap & glory 'The righteous butter'
'A body moisturising formula formula so virtuous, you might swear you're wearing velvet'
If I had to chose only one body cream to use for the rest of my life it would be this...Thats how much I love it! It is lightweight, it is moisturising, it has such a gorgeous scent, many people have said it smells like the perfume 'Miss Cherie' by Dior which is one of my all-time favourite scents but basically its that famous Soap & glory scent which we all know and love <3 It is around £10 but well worth it.
Bettyhula Rum & Blackcurrent shea butter body cream *
'Honest, natural beauty, Betty's big tub of natural good'
Oh....lord, This was a recent discovery and I am in LOVE! You can find this in Sainsburys so its very accessable, I think it also is around the £10 mark, I dont think it would last as long as the Soap & glory but it is also well worth it. It smells like heaven & Im so bad at explaining smells so do try to find it yourself and have a sniff! Very lightweight, absorbs quickly, has a 'whipped' consistency and its something that would be perfect to use while on holiday, not sure why, but it just smells like holiday!
Korres Guava body butter
'Extra moisturing cream for dry skin conditions'
The full size of this product dosent look like this tube as this was received in a beauty box many months ago, it absorbs very quickly and actually lasts very long. I enjoy using this alot, I know they do other scents but I havent tried them, I would like to! I would say this is the most lightweight out of the four I have talked about and it has the lightest scent for those who arnt to keen on smelling like a bowl of fruit haha! (Silicone & mineral oil free)
Have you tried any of these? What is your favourite body cream?
