Winter wreaking havoc with your skin? These are the lush body moisturisers you need to know
Norwegian Formula Deep Moisture Express Body Mist, £6.99, Neutrogena
Spray moisturisers are a welcome invention in icy temperatures. When you want to go from hot shower to pyjamas faster than the speed of light, this spray nozzle will cover your surface areas quickly, hydrating your limbs in a flash.
Hydro Boost Body Gel Cream, £5.99, Neutrogena Hyaluronic acid has long been our number one for plumping and hydrating our sorry complexions. And now the amazing ingredient can be found in Neutrogena’s humble body moisturiser, so your legs, arms, bum and everything in between can benefit too!
Other than the fact it’s fun to say, this bum bum cream has won beauty addicts over with its super hydrating and rich texture that somehow manages to leave no residue. Plus, it contains caffeine to stimulate blood flow and reduce cellulite (the reviews don’t lie) and a nutty scent that’s addictive AF.
We love AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) for our skincare – but why should it stop with the skin on our face? The retexturising and hydrating ingredient is highly effective on the whole body. Plus, REN have even added some probiotics to boost the skin barrier.
The original salve has saved our skin in many a scrape and now there’s a version for the whole body. It’s easily absorbed and soothes even the most distressed skin thanks to its long list of anti-inflammatory ingredients.
If you’re not already familiar with The Body Shop’s famous Body Butters, where have you been? We love the entire extensive range of scents, but Pink Grapefruit and Vineyard Peach are the perfect pick-me-ups, no matter what time of year it is. They’ll also absorb quickly into skin leaving it feeling softer and looking visibly smoother.
The ultimate luxury; Jo Malone London’s Pomegranate Noir body cream is soft and velvety, instantly absorbing into skin, leaving a rich sensual scent that will last for hours. Combine with a spritz of the fragrance or one of the brand’s dozens of complimentary scents.
This cult favourite is enriched with beta-carotene, sesame oil and squalane for an all-over intensive moisturiser that will leave skin soft and smooth and gently scented, thanks to the softening cocoa butter. You’ll see results after just one or two uses.
Frank is a brand we can’t get enough of here at GLAMOUR HQ, and largely because its primary ingredient is coffee. This luxurious body cream smells like chocolate and coffee and hydrates the skin as soon as it touches the surface.
