Best Body Lotions for Dry Skin


This time of the year my legs are dying due to dryness and lack of vitamin D – and all I want is to like Gisele in the picture above. Blogging about beauty for two years has led me through trying tons of lotions and potions, and I have compiled a small list of the best lotions to make you forget of dry skin and getting one step closer to those Gisele – legs (minus the rest of her craziness of course).

1.This Clarins body lotion is my absolute favourite (read review here). I buy it every year (no matter how many lotions I already have at home) – and it never lets me down – it sinks in fast, smells pleasant and most importantly – it makes my skin super soft, even when its beyond dry.

2. Nivea is a favourite of mine: a reliable budget friend I use when my skin needs some extra extra extra hydration – where I don‘t feel uncomfortable wrapping my skin in double layers before I go to bed. Read my full review of the Nivea body cream here.

3. In general I think that Dove makes pretty decent things – they smell nice, have a good quality and the price point is satisfying – I got my hands of this Dove body lotion by chance and was pleasantly surprised – it sinks in fast and makes my skin soooft. And the smell is not classic Dove so nobody will know that you are being on a budget.

4. Ok this list wouldn‘t be complete without some luxurious lotion – one of those that you kind of don‘t want to use because then you know it will make you run out of it – and you dread that – since you won‘t spent that money on it again. That lotion for me is this lily body lotion – smells of heaven and makes my bathroom feel like that of an old rich lady – but in a good way of course.

Hope you enjoy this list and feel free to share your favourites! /Mary

Review of Dove DermaSpa Goodness³ Body Lotion



Very hydrating and gets absorbed faaaaast.


The smell might not be for everybody (we all like different types of perfume right?)


Ok so some of you have requested some budget reviews and we are here to serve you. I am a big fan of Nivea and Dove cause they make budget friendly stuff which often works well. This body lotion is no exception: it is easy to apply, dries in fast and makes my skin soft. Thumbs up for that. What do I not like: the smell is ok for me, I‘m not really picky: it smells of a mix of flowers and your 100 years old grannys perfume (kind of awkward choice of fragrance if you want to read the big masses in my opinion…). According to the Dove website that smell is vanilla, musk and coconut..maybe that‘s a bit too much in one bottle..They also compare using this body lotion to feeling as spending a day in a spa, I would much rather call the feeling of using it as “yay it‘s cheap and it‘s decent wohoo for my wallet”.
