Body lotion. It’s perhaps the most underrated-yet most popular-beauty must-have out there. I know I’ve been using it since before I started buying lotions for acne, creams for wrinkles and prior to even knowing what half of the current products on the market even were-or what they were good for. Asking me to pick my four favorite is like asking a mother of ten to choose the child she loves the most, but here it goes:
Jurlique Jasmine Body Care Lotion: You have to love jasmine and you have to be ready for people asking you “what are you wearing,” but this herbal lightweight lotion (it goes on almost watery, but that’s what makes it soak in superquickly) leaves a scent that lingers for the whole day.
Fresh SugarBath Lychee Lotion: My good friend Kate gets full credit for this one. She has stockpiled this sweetly scented lotion ever since it debuted; every time I visit her I use it and think that it’s just the most special, most luxurious scent out there. It never gets old.
LaRocca Body Cellular Gold Hydrating Body Balm: Technically, this pudding-like product is a balm and not a lotion (if you hold the container upside down, it won’t fall out), but its mix of skin-saving oils (which also leave behind a slight sheen) and refreshing grapefruit scent sets it apart.
Eucerin: Even with all the specialty-scented lotions out there, this staple still stands out. And probably for good reason: it works. Put it on before bed and it fixes dryness and leaves skin looking hydrated for days.
