There’s no way around it, using a body moisturizer is an absolute necessity. It keeps your skin hydrated, supple and smooth. It can prevent ingrown hairs by keeping your skin soft so that hairs don’t get trapped. It provides the outer layers of your skin with much-needed vitamins and collagen, keeping your skin firm and tight. And, if you put a little effort into really massaging it into your skin, it can help increase circulation and minimize cellulite. Sounds like a win to us!
With all those benefits, how great is it that today’s lotions also smell as good as they work? We’re such a fan of deliciously scented body lotions that we actually put together a list of our favorites. These lotions smell so great that you don’t even need to wear any perfume afterwards. Just a quick warning, some of these smell so delicious that you may be tempted to take a bite. Here are our favorite fragranced body lotions.
Aromatherapy Associates Nourishing Enrich Body Butter – This body butter is rich, nourishing and long-lasting, just how we like them. An exotic blend of sweet jasmine, patchouli and tonka bean will leave your skin smelling sweet all day long, while babasu oil and murumuru butter deeply moisturize and leave your skin with a light sheen.
Dr. Hauschka Rose Body Moisturizer – If you love rose, it doesn’t get any better than this. Rose wax, rose essential oil, wild rose hips and rose petals are all gently blended into this hydrating body lotion. Shea butter, almond oil and jojoba will make your skin feel baby-soft immediately after applying this.
Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Body Butter – Hydrate and protect your skin with this body butter. Coconut oil, soy bean oil and hydrogenated vegetable oil lock in moisture, while algae extract protects from free radicals. The fresh citrus scent makes this butter perfect for early mornings or after the gym.
Elemis Lime and Ginger Hand and Body – This lotion offers some serious smoothing action, thanks to alpha hydroxy acids, shea butter and vitamin E. It also smells amazingly refreshing, due to the blend of lime, citrus, vetiver, petitgrain and ginger essential oils. Yum.
