Five Body Moisturisers You Need to Try

I have spoken several times about being really lazy when it comes to moisturising my body which is ironic as I am vigilant where my face is concerned which is oily and not with my body which is dry. Oh life. I do have some tricks up my sleeve into coercing myself into putting the little extra effort into my daily shower routine and here is how...

Superdrug Body Butter in Cherry and Macadamia 
Personally I find that if a body butter smells incredible I am more inclined to use it, there is something far more appealing visually about a body butter than a body lotion - I think it is the satisfaction of dunking my fingers into it? That sounded far less vile in my head than it appears on screen. I am a huge fan of Superdrug's Body Butter in Cherry and Macadamia as it not only deeply hydrates my skin but leaves behind a beautiful trail of fragrance that lasts all day. As nourishing as body butters may be in the colder weather I do cast them aside but come the Summer this is by far my favoured body moisturiser of choice.

Vaseline Spray and Go Body Moisturiser in Aloe VeraWhen time is of the essence there is only one body moisturiser I reach for and that is Vaseline Spray and Go Body Moisturiser in Aloe Vera. It is quick, easy, smells great and more than does the job. I like that I can quickly mist it on, gently rub in, dress and leave the house without wasting any time faffing around for it to sink into my skin. I will be entirely honest in saying that is no way as nourishing as your standard body lotion or body butter but my theory is that it is better than nothing at all. Non?

Kiehl's Creme de Corps
I am not a fan of body lotion on the whole, I find it to messy and on the whole most don't tend to be nourishing enough to merit full body application. The only body lotion that has ever slipped under the net is Kiehl's Creme de Corps, an unscented, thick and buttery texture that quickly absorbs into the skin. It is non-sticky nor greasy and is as light as can be. Yet it moisturises the skin on my body like no other and it can be used on my eczema too. As soon as I apply it my skin feels supple, instantly softer and it soothes any irritated and inflamed areas of skin. Can I get a hallelujah. It is a little on the pricey side but if your skin is dried out and/or sensitive skin this is the body product for you.

No7 Luxurious Foaming Shower Oil
Shower oil in general has been a slow burner for me, I simply couldn't wrap my head around cleansing with oil for the longest time. Anyway I am a huge fan of L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil but living in a small town does mean that I can't just pop out and replenish when needed. The first time I tried No7 Luxurious Foaming Shower Oil  I wasn't all that convinced, the scent takes some getting used to. However what I will say is that I rather like that it not only produces a light lather when cleansing but it is one of the more nourishing shower oils I have tried. It deeply conditions meaning I can (and do) skip a layer of body butter on the cold mornings. Another option is Lush Olive Branch Shower Gel which is pretty similar but a little more sudsy.

Melvita L'argan Bio Body Oil in Cream 
As you can imagine this is a body cream which has been infused with Argan oil. The texture is thick, creamy yet lightweight at the same time, it is deeply nourishing and quickly absorbed without leaving behind any residue even on damp skin. I like that from the first application you can notice the change in the texture of the skin even the roughest areas of my body (elbows, knees) feel smooth from the get go. If like myself you find body butters a little tedious to apply and absorb, body lotions not quite hydrating enough and body oils messy this is the body cream for you - all the moisture none of the fuss.

Do you have any must have body moisturisers that are relatively quick and easy to use?
