What is body lotion? 

Body lotion is a water-based cream that moisturises, soothes and softens skin. They have a thinner consistency than moisturisers and are more easily absorbed, so they’re better suited for everyday application than a thick moisturiser or body butter. 

What does body lotion do? 

The heavily water-based formula has countless benefits that leave skin soft and silky all over. Body lotion helps to:

  • Restore lost moisture 
  • Support the skin barrier 
  • Soothe sore skin 
  • Smooth calluses 
  • Rid dry skin 
  • Create a natural glow 

Body lotion works hard to moisturise even the driest skin types, removing any discomfort caused by tight skin. It penetrates the skin to deeply hydrate from inside out for a beautifully smooth, supple finish. 

When to use body lotion 

Put simply, body lotion should be applied when skin starts to feel dry. However, there are certain times where skin can really benefit from lotion, like: 

  • After shaving – Shaving not only removes hair, but also the top layer of skin cells. Applying body lotion helps to protect skin from dry air, soothe razor burn, and replenish lost hydration. 
  • Before going to bed – Skin can become very dry when we sleep, so applying a lotion before bed will give it time to properly penetrate the skin for a silky-smooth finish in the morning. 
  • After a shower or bath – hot water naturally draws moisture away from the skin, so it’s important to seal hydration deep into the skin to prevent dryness and irritation. 

Best body lotion for you 

Different skin types mean different requirements, so it’s important to find the perfect lotion for you.

How to use body lotion 

For best results, we recommend applying body lotion while skin is still moist, specifically after a bath or shower. Apply a coin-sized amount to your palm and gently massage into skin until completely absorbed. 

If you are trying a product or ingredient for the first time, we always recommend a patch test first.
