Body Moisturizers Lotions

Body lotion reviews are varied and many, like everything else in Skin Care and Beauty products, so knowing what to choose can be tricky! Trial and error?….well no longer.  For starters, I would like to review two really nice body moisturizing lotions for two different seasons. One for summer and one for winter.


Summer – light and nourishing

Garnier Light Extra Whitening Repairing Milk Body Lotion 400ml

Product: Garnier body lotion

Cheapest place to buy: Amazon

Skin Type: All types

My Rating: 8 out of 10


Sun exposure and pollution make our skin dull and dry. The New Garnier Body Light Extra Whitening Repairing Milk Lotion, which is enriched with 2x Pure Lemon Essence is clinically proven to lighten dark spots and illuminate skin tone. It is fortified with moisture repairing nutrients to strengthen our skin’s protective barrier against moisture loss. It is fast-absorbing and has a non-sticky texture, so the skin feels soft, supple and intensely moisturized all day long. This formula contains UVA/UVB filters.

Winter – Rich & Nourishing

L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Lotion, 8.4 Fl Oz

Skin Type:  Dry & dehydrated skin

Size: 250ml

My Rating:  8.7 out of 10

L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Lotion,


This lotion has 15 percent Shea butter, natural honey, and apricot oil to L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Lotion, nourish, moisturize and protect.  It has a lovely fragrance as almost ALL  L’Occitane products do and so lifts the senses with subtle essences of jasmine and ylang-ylang, which I absolutely love!

As it nourishes and protects dry skin it is great to use on feet, knees, and elbows, leaving the skin soft, supple, and comfortable. This lotion is rapidly absorbed into the skin, so you don’t have any “oily” feeling afterward.

  1. I have never been one to wear lotion but I think both of these lotions sound like they offer premium support for keeping your skin smooth.

    When it comes to anyone that is feeling insecure about dark spots, I could see this being a must buy if it helps with healing.

    My question is, would you say these 2 are the best lotion products that you would recommend to others? Also, who are these 2 mainly for?

    1. Hi Arie,  thanks for the feedback. These 2 lotions are but a few of the many good lotions on the market. I am planning on recommending some more, but these are the first 2, a light one and a thicker, richer bodied lotion, depending on the state of your skin.

      Though the consensus possibly says that men don’t use/need body lotion, that is simply not true! We all have skin, regardless of our gender. So my answer to you is that it is just as good and useful for men and women alike.
