My Favourite Body Creams

Wednesday 30 November 2011

There are so many moisturisers out there for your body it is sometimes scary. Do you choose a cream or a lotion. What about a fragrance? Do you want it to tan you or make you shimmer like a disco ball? There's too many choices.

Here are always ones that I go back to. The ones that sink into my skin and make it feel so soft and smooth.

St Ives Soothing Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Lotion
This is my most loved lotion of all time.It smells amazing and is so thick. Even at the end of the day my skin still feels so hydrated. No scaly legs with this bad boy! It is so good that my mum actually stole this from when when she came and visited!! So when I go and stay with her, I now use hers...or should I say mine ;) Its only $6.99. It's great for itchy skin, so its fantastic for after waxing or shaving. I use it when I get mozzie bites too, as it helps to calm down the skin.

Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Lotion
Palmer's Cocoa Butter, enriched with Vitamin E, is an advanced moisturiser that softens, smoothes and relieves dry skin. This is amazing. Its great because it is so thick and really hydrates your skin. It also helps with stretchmarks. Personally I like the fragrance free one, so I can put on perfume without worrying that it will ruin the scent.

A'kin Unscented Body Moisturiser
This is another great unscented lotion that is really thick and lasts a long time. Its great for calming skin sensitive skin. I love it on my legs after shaving. I find if i put this on, and the another fragrant lotion on, my skin doesn't get an allergy afterwards. Its also an Australian made and owned company. It's paraben and sulfate free for those people that like to use natural products without chemicals. 

Jurlique Jasmine Body Care Lotion
This one smells divine. I really love Jurlique products. I also love going into their stores as the sales staff are so friendly and helpful. The only thing I don't love about this is the price. At $44.95, its expensive for a lotion. But I'm in love with the smell. It's so gorgeous and it lasts all day. So normally what I do is put on another moisturiser that has no scent (like the A'kin one) and then put a small amount of this on top to make the bottle last. It contains no parabens, mineral oils, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium lauryl ether sulfate, synthetic emulsifiers and fragrances, or artificial colors. So you are paying for  quality with this, which doesn't come cheap. But i love the smell so much that I treat myself to one every once in a while. I just try to make it last :)

What are your favourite creams? Do you enjoy a fragrance or prefer something that doesn't smell?


  1. I'm not anal retentive I promise... but thought you might not have realised that you've misspelt 'favourite' in the title. Love all of these creams too. I also love to use a basic sorbolene or unscented lotion and mix in some essential oils, DIY fragrance style :)

  2. ohhh no how embarrassing! Thanks for letting me know. :) ohhh i love DIY beauty products, especially face masks.
