Top 5 Deeply Hydrating Body Lotions for Your Softest Skin Ever

While our faces tend to get all of the love as far as multi-step skincare routines, chances are high you’ve got plenty of other areas begging for some extra TLC. Yes, spoiling the rest of our bodies, from the neck on down is a necessity.

Some extra skin TLC


It’s easy to hop out of the shower, towel off, and move on with our busy days, but next time consider taking a minute or two to add skin-smoothing body lotion to your daily routine. With decadent, naturally sourced ingredients, these five picks make moisturizing from head to toe easy and luxe.


Epicuren Discovery Kukui Coconut After Bath

Epicuren Discovery Kukui Coconut After Bath ($40)


As its name suggests, this sumptuous lotion is especially beneficial to lather on after a bath or shower — when skin benefits the most from hydration (since water evaporating off the skin can leave it feeling extra-dry). Featuring a high dose of nourishing vitamin B3, biotin, and Kukui nut seed oil, it has a delightfully island-ready scent. If coconut’s not your go-to scent, it’s also available in orange blossom, French lavender, and more alluring options.



Apivita Pure Jasmine Moisturizing Body Milk


Apivita Pure Jasmine Moisturizing Body Milk ($15)


Consider this enchanting body milk self-care in a bottle. Formulated with shea butter, sweet almond oil, and sunflower seed oil, it delivers deep hydration for silky-smooth skin. And, its aromatherapy-like jasmine scent (made from pure, certified organic essential oils) is instantly soothing for your mind, body, and soul.

Lanolin Everywhere Multi-Cream

True to the Australian brand’s moniker, Lanolips is best known for its super-hydrating lip balms and tints — but their signature ingredient Lanolin, a hydrating (and reportedly cruelty-free) oil that occurs in sheep’s wool, also works wonders for the rest of your skin. Humanely sourced from Australian sheep farmers, their Lanolin Everywhere Multi-Cream is truly multipurpose. Use it on your body as well as your face, on your hands, under your eyes, and more for ultra-nourished, soft, glowy skin all day long. 


Nécessaire The Body Lotion

This chic, French girl beauty-inspired body lotion is perfect for anyone who’d rather skip fragrances in their beauty products (whether you have sensitive skin or just prefer to go au natural). What it lacks in scent, though, it makes up for in a natural ingredient list that’s chock-full of purposeful add-ins including marula, cacay, and meadowfoam oils, as well as vitamins A, B3, C and E, and Omegas 6 and 9. It also features niacinamide, which is said to help repair and strengthen the skin barrier.


Earth’s Recipe Cell Down Nourishing Cream


Earth’s Recipe Cell Down Nourishing Cream ($38)


This K-beauty favorite relies on magnolia bark extract to hydrate, tone, and firm your skin. Caffeine and an array of botanical ingredients help to reduce water retention beneath the skin and improve circulation while infusing the dermis with next-level moisture for impressive results (along with reduced cellulite, if that’s something you’re interested in). This cream is also lauded for helping reduce arm and leg bumps commonly referred to as keratosis pilaris.

would love to try these products! i have extremely dry, flaky skin. i just want a fast relief lotion.

Okay, I'm going to need one of everything! After going through the hottest and driest summer in Phoenix, AZ, my skin needs a SERIOUS hydration boost!

I need to try all these products out. I tend to take so much care for my face and neglect my body.

I cannot wait to try Apivita's Body Milk! I've been needing a lotion to keep my skin moisturized.

The Epicuren after bath moisturizer is A-MA-ZING. This list is great, especially since seasons will start to change soon to the cooler/cold months and many people experience drier skin during those times.

I Have the Epicuren coconut after bath moisturizer and OMG. This product has my body feeling super hydrated and smooth. I feel like i just came out of a 1 hour massage. You need this added to your routine as soon as possible!

Great list! Thank you for sharing! :)

Epicuren's Discovery Kukui Coconut After Bath COMPLETES ME! The smell is light nirvana. The feel is amazing. I am sure the other brands are wonderful, but I am a sucker for anything coconut and skin-quenching. Check and check!

Yes! It is currently September and I have been stressing to my clients about dry skin season. This article could not be more perfect for finding solutions to the dry winter skin!

I am really obssesed now with body lotions because I tend to focus more on face and neck. But now I am giving my whole a body a self care she needs.
