If I try not look outside my window right now – let’s face it, summer is coming! And you know what that means? Wearing clothes that reveal more skin. Over the winter, homes get colder and we often neglect one vital parts of our beauty routine which is moisturising our bodies. It is understandable because all we want to do is put on our clothes quickly to keep warm and quite often, don’t see this point of routine as important. But, by not moisturising, we are actually not doing out skin any favours and when the sun finally shows and we decide to pop on our best dresses, we will regret not continuously moisturising sooner.
It’s not too late though, ensure that you hydrate your body every day and I promise that when summer swings along, your skin will be soft, firm and glowing. In today’s post, I am sharing five amazing body lotions to start using this spring.
This body gel-cream is by far one of the best I've tried for a long while, but sadly, it isn't available in the UK anymore. Le Couvent Des Minimes was a sister brand to L'Occitane and stocked mostly bodycare products. The Rose & Berries scent is such a lovely fragrance, it's lightly fruity and not too overpowering at all. Because the texture of the cream is gel-based, it makes application super easy and smooth and it sinks in instantly.
If you're a fan of floral scents like me, then this is definitely 'the one' for you. Infused with distilled extracts of fig buds and precious floral oils, this body balm is intensely nourishing and ideal for very dry skins. The thicker texture ensures that the cream penetrates in to the skin and leaves it feeling extremely soft and lightly scented. A little goes a long way with this one also, so you don't need a lot to cover a full body.
This is probably the most luxurious body cream I will ever own and definitely one that I will recommend to you all despite the price tag. I just simply love this body cream for spring, in fact, for all seasons in general. The texture is creamy, yet creates such a light feel on the skin. The scent is just perfect, rose galore - definitely my absolute favourite. My skin is honestly so silky soft after each application and smells gorgeous.
Say hello to the perfect every day body lotion from Clinique. This lotion is super quick absorbing, incredible for dry skin and ideal for spring/summer thanks to it's non-greasy and lightweight texture. You don't need a lot with this one either, a little goes a long way and it's definitely good value for money. There isn't a particular scent to this, which is great for those who have sensitive skin and simply does the job.
Last, but not least, this lovely shimmer souffle from Ted Baker is my go-to for nights out or just whenever I fancy having glistening skin, you know because sometimes, you just want to sparkle, haa! For starters, I absolutely love the packaging, white casing with a touch of pink lining and gold writing, perfection already. The product itself is easy to apply, leaves my skin soft, smooth and shiny and it looks real good applied on top of a tan, so I would definitely recommend taking this on holiday and using it for evenings out.
