5 Best Body Moisturisers

During the winter, my skin has multiple personalities. One day it can be ultra-dry, the next it can just look plain dull. I also have the odd occasion where I get a small breakout of spots on areas like my chest and arms, so when it comes to body moisturisers I have to have a few to hand depending on what my skin is up to! 

Over the last few years, I have managed to round up some of my all-time favourites, some that I've been using for yearrssss and some that have been recent discoveries, that are now my support team to any skin issues I'm having.


GARNIER SUMMER BODY LOTION



BEST FOR GLOWING SKIN: GARNIER SUMMER BODY LOTION


When my skin is in need of a pick-me-up, this is the lotion I reach for. This gradual tanner is one of the best I've tried and gives me a streak-free glow without the classic biscuity smell that normally comes with tans.

In the past, I've found some gradual tan body lotions haven't actually been that moisturising, but this is able to tackle my dry sensitive skin really well! It also isn't greasy, meaning I can apply this in a hurry and not worry about feeling sticky under my clothes if I go out straight away.

AVEENO DAILY MOISTURISER


BEST FOR DRY SKIN: AVEENO DAILY MOISTURISER


My body has been a fan of this stuff for 24 years. Yup, you heard me right. My mum has been using this stuff on my skin since I was a baby to treat my eczema, and nothing else works as well as this does. 

I always keep this beside my bed to tackle any spots of dryness that appear, and then I use this all over if I'm having a big flare-up. I know oatmeal-based products don't work for everyone, but they certainly work for me. I always take a small pot with me everywhere!

O'KEEFFE'S HEALTHY FEET EXFOLIATING FOOT CREAM


BEST FOR FEET: O'KEEFFE'S HEALTHY FEET EXFOLIATING FOOT CREAM


I used to use my normal body lotion to moisturise my feet, but I soon realised it wasn't effective enough if I wanted silky smooth feet. After a while of thinking that foot cream was a bit of faff, I finally decided to try some out for myself and since then I've always had once sat next to my body lotions! 

This one from O'Keeffe's doesn't just give your feet a moisture hit, but it also exfoliates away any dead skin cells leaving your skin silky smooth. I love applying this just after a shower and then popping on some cosy socks to help this sink in. It's one of the best I've tried, and I can't wait for summer again when I can slip into my sandals without worrying about cracked heels.

GARNIER INTENSIVE 7 DAYS SOFTENING BODY MOISTURISER


BEST FOR WINTER: GARNIER INTENSIVE 7 DAYS SOFTENING BODY MOISTURISER


As well as using my Aveeno moisturiser to help keep dry rough skin at bay, I've also been using this intensive one from Garnier as a preventative during the winter. 

 The Intensive range has key ingredients at the hydration for-front and the Softening lotion uses coconut milk to leave skin nourished with a soft texture that really lasts. They also use the probiotic extract to build up the skin's barrier and stop any much-needed moisture evaporating from the skin. 

This has the most amazing sweet coconut smell, which helps me look forward to any upcoming holidays as it reminds me of pina coladas on the beach. Great for beating the winter blues!

KIEHL'S CREME DE CORPS


BEST FOR ALL YEAR ROUND: KIEHL'S CREME DE CORPS


Believe the hype around this body moisturiser, because it really is the perfect lotion. 

This is the moisturiser that I know I can reach for all year round, and it will give me the moisture my skin needs without fail. Sure, they'll be times when my skin needs a bit more TLC to soothe dry skin or a bit of a glow up, but for everyday use, this works wonders and I know I can rely on it. 

The non-greasy formula means I don't end up with a layer on my skin that goes slimy in the warmer months, and yet it leaves my skin soft and smooth during the colder months without having to top it up later in the day. 

This has a beautiful light scent that won't overpower your perfume and I know I'll be coming back to this time and time again.
