5 Body Moisturizers I'm Loving This Season!

As someone with super dry skin, I'm constantly on the lookout for some good moisturizers and have tried a ton of them. I prefer thicker creams and body butters during winter but there are some good lotions that do a great job too!

The Body Shop Passion Fruit Body Butter

One of the best moisturizers for dry skin. I picked up the Passion Fruit one during a sale at TBS. It sinks in so quickly and the fragrance lingers on for a long time too. Like all TBS body butters, this one too is non-greasy. These body butters also double up as great hand creams.

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter($5 Travel size, $18 Full size)
Pacifica is one of my favourite brands when it comes to body care products.Though this is not as moisturizing as the TBS body butters, it is still good enough to last for 7-8 hours. It keeps my skin balanced and sweet smelling.

Bath and Body works White Tea and Ginger Body Lotion($9.50)

I picked this up during the BBW semi-annual sale and absolutely love the way it smells. I can't wait to pick up more of the classic scents again when they bring them back during the sale. This is something that works really well when my skin is not too dry or after using a body scrub. I love to layer it with the body splash!

Yes to Carrots Deliciously Rich Body Butter

This super rich body butter works great even on the driest of skins. It works great on dry, cracked feet too. It does have a strong fragrance though. I got a travel size from Target to try out. I'm not sure if I'll buy a full size ever since I have too many body butters and lotions to finish off.

Burt's Bees Richly Replenishing Cocoa & CupuaƧu Butters Body Lotion ($8)
This is one of the most effective moisturizers you can ever find at the drugstore. It does not have a great fragrance or fancy packaging but does an amazing job on dry skin. I don't have the need to re-apply for hours together when I use this. It sinks in well and does not feel greasy at all. It's a great pick if you have dry, itchy skin too!

What are your current favourite body moisturizers?

  1. The White Tea & Ginger body lotion is my absolute favourite from Bath & Body Works. And I can only get it on eBay. Bah!

  3. Among these, I have used only TBS till date and I love it...Heard a lot about Yes to Carrots

  4. @Olgie - Awww, that's too bad. Even here, I try to get it during the sale. Otherwise, its not available in-stores :)

  5. @Tracy - It is! Works great, right? I'm so glad you like it :D

  6. @Poorni - TBS is amazing! Yeah, Yes To is a good brand but some of their stuff is overpriced, imo :)
