With cold weather setting in fast, we’d thought it best to share six of the best body butters, creams and lotions out to smooth, firm and keep skin both looking and feeling its best all season long.
For Skin Smoothing
We recommend Dermalogica’s Body Hydrating Cream, R799 for 473ml. Although pricey, this is worth every penny thanks to its super skin smoothing formula of gently exfoliating lactic and hydroxy fruit acids to blitz away rough patches and bumpy skin texture.
Also great to try is the buttery, vanilla scented Aveeno Daily Moisturising Body Yogurt, R79,99 for 200ml, with colloidal oatmeal to soothe and calm signs of irritation and inflammation on the skin.
The In-Shower Moisturiser
We like Lush Scrubee, R125 for 87g, with its shea butter, coconut and honey enriched formula. This must-have moisturiser is the perfect in-shower companion for silky smooth skin thanks to crushed almond and coconut shells that help to get rid of dead skin cells while it conditions.
The Indulgent Cream
The Body Shop Spa of The World Hawaiian Kukui Cream, R410 for 350ml, contains omega and fatty acid rich kukui nut oil which is great at locking in moisture without leaving a greasy film.
The Firming Cream
Elancyl Firming Body Cream, R290 for 200ml, is filled with a triple action formula to firm, nourish and tone the skin with ingredients such as ivy, safflower oil and vitamin c.
The Calming Cream
Clarins Eau Ressoircante Silky-Smooth Body Cream, R530 for 200ml, is basil, iris and cedar wood scented aromatherapy in a dreamy texture that melts into the skin instantly and gets you feeling ready for bed.
