Body lotions for me are essential for this time of year. Its that season when you don't need the thickness of the body butters but instead you can go for something lighter and with a nice scent that people can actually notice you wearing. There are so many lotions out there on the market, from those in gift sets to large singular tubs, all which have their own unique formulas and scents.

Some of my favourites include Soap and Glory Butter Yourself Moisture Lotion which has a lovely fresh fruity scent and comes in a huge bottle that is sure to last you all through the spring and summer seasons. 

Before discovering Soap and Glory, my mum used to swear by Avon's Skin So Soft body lotion to which she recently introduced me too. Its light in texture but applies so lovely, leaving your skin feeling silky smooth. You would never realise how inexpensive it is judging by the quality of application, I just love this for everyday. 

Another staple is Sanctuary Spa lotions. This brand never fails when it comes to their skincare products, I honestly love so many of their products. They all have that fresh and comforting 'spa-like' scent that makes it feel like you are using a very luxurious product. Its surprisingly thick and really works in softening the skin, making it effective all year round even during the harsh winter seasons. 
The best thing about Christmas gift sets is that you can get your favourite perfume scents in lotion form. I absolutely love this Ghost Body Lotion, the scent just gets me every time. It actually reminds me of my mum as she often wears the Ghost perfume so it does have a nostalgia element to it for me personally. Its great that there are so many options though, however I must note that the gorgeous scent is more prominent than the effect of the lotion in most cases with these gift sets. 

There are so many variations of lotions and they all have their uses. I feel like the quality of inexpensive drugstore skincare is always improving, and now theres different options depending on what you're looking for.  I'm sure my collection of body lotions and skincare products will continue to build up with some great products! Is there a particular product you like to wear during these warmer seasons? Feel free to comment below.


  1. The avon and soap and glory are such great lotions :)

  2. I'm really, really bad at keeping up with my body skincare and I think it's that I just find it really boring; but picking a fragranced body lotion like Ghost is such a good idea, maybe it'd give me the kick up the bum that I need to get on top of looking after my skin!
