Tried and tested: Body Moisturiser

Tried and tested: Body Moisturiser

Using a body moisturiser is one of those things that we all know we should do, but can't always be bothered. Greasy limbs and pungent smells are some of the reasons why people might skip them, but your skin won't thank you for it. Here we look at some which might make you stick to a moisturising schedule.

Original Source Skin Quench Body Lotion Peach & Apricot Oil - 4/5

I've used Original Source shower gels in the past, so seeing that the company had expanded into body care piqued my interest. And I can confirm that the moisturiser feels and smells just as good as the shower gel. The peach and apricot scent was strong enough to leave an impact, but subtle enough to not overpower. A little went along way and absorbed into the skin quickly. My skin has been really sensitive lately and a lot of products have caused it to sting - but not this one, which was really nice and gentle.

Calendulis Plus Cream - 2.5/5

This is a special moisturiser because it's formulated to help with skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. The ingredients are all natural, which I liked, and it did relieve the itching I have from eczema on my arms. It didn't do anything to help clear the condition up though, which was a little disappointing. It's also got quite a strong and medicinal smell, which didn't particularly bother me but won't be for everyone.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Natural Bronze Body Lotion - 4/5

I love the products from Palmer's and their cocoa butter is a staple in most homes. This bronzing version for summer is sure to be a big hit with fans, as I found it gave me a streak-free result that built gradually. It's much more natural than other fake tans and also gives your skin that traditional hit of cocoa moisture. Sadly it falls into the tanning trap of being a bit smelly, so I had to deduct a point.
