We get it – there’s nothing super exciting about body lotion. It’s just not usually a product that reigns supreme like Instagrammable skincare products or pretty fragrances that double as decor. But at the end of the day, we all still rely on our body lotion to keep our skin hydrated and looking its best. Ahead, our team of beauty editors shares their go-to body lotions and the reasons we love them.
Dawn, Senior Editorial Director
This cream is ultra rich yet sinks in fast, and the base is shea butter and coconut oil, making it wildly hydrating. (It's the kind of moisturizer you can put on one day, and your skin still feels amazing two days later.) Most of all, I love the scent: sweet and nutty without being too beachy or summery. It's the kind of fragrance that smells like your skin but so much better.
Marisa, Assistant Beauty Editor
As someone who struggles with dry, itchy skin, Vichy ideal body milk does wonders to keep my skin hydrated and itch-free. The texture is lightweight and full of skin-loving ingredients that will make your skin feel smoother and look brighter. I’ve found it’s most effective when I apply it to slightly damp skin.
Tembe, Assistant Beauty Editor
Not only is CeraVe affordable and available pretty much everywhere, it leaves your skin feeling moisturized and super smooth. I love to use it after exfoliating with Herbivore Coco Rose –– the consistency is great and feels really nice on freshly cleansed skin.
Alanna, Assistant Beauty Editor
I love this cocoa butter and sesame oil cream body lotion from Kiehl's. I have super dry skin when the seasons change, so I'm always looking for a really rich, creamy moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated throughout the day. I love to apply this after a shower and before bed – it's perfect for your cozy fall night skincare routine!
