I try so many body lotions and creams that it’s really hard to keep track of my favourites. I also keep changing my mind about which ones truly are my favourites. Let’s be honest, if you are a body cream lover like I am, you’ll know exactly how difficult it is to give only one the honour of top spot. Especially if you run to the shops every time you spot a new launch. But the following 3 have carried me through winter and they will most definitely remain on my list of favourite favourites.
Body Creams: The best of the best
Body Treats Natural Aqueous – R70
I never thought that I’d ever rate an aqueous cream as highly as I do this one. Body Treats, your Natural Aqueous is fan-freakin-tastic!! This hand-made, proudly local product is simply perfect. It is soft, rich and gentle and suitable for even the most sensitive of skin types. The moment Cara or my skin hinted at an eczema flare-up, I reached for this cream and it calmed our skins on contact. Love, love, LOVE this stuff. And it is my first choice for Cara’s delicate skin. PS Body Treats’ aqueous cream isn’t the only great product from this awesome company. Make sure to check out their website. You can shop online too. You will not be disappointed. Promise.
Mio Skincare Future Proof – R850
Okay, I realise that this is not a budget-friendly buy. It’s helluva expensive but, oh my, it is so divine. It smells so good and makes me feel like a million bucks. Smooth, silky and fabulous. If you want to spoil me, you buy me this. What Mio says about their firming body butter: ‘This over-achieving treatment butter will mega-moisturise, increase bounce and resilience and fight free radicals to keep your skin strong and supple with a healthy 24-hour glow.’ Did you know that you can now shop for all things Mio online? Check it out HERE.
I’ve raved about the new Eucerin UreaRepair range before over HERE. I don’t do videos, but if I did, I would probably be shouting as I can’t tell people about this cream without getting overly excited. And yes, one can get this excited about cream ;) My skin looks and feels amazing. And not just after application and perhaps for a few hours after that. No. My skin is changed! It is softer, smoother and healthier than ever before. My usually dull, scaly, wrinkly skin is glowing! Shit. This cream is amazing. If you have dry, scaly, ageing, eczema-prone, sensitive, dull skin, please try this! I know it’s not cheap and, believe me, it doesn’t really fit into my budget either, but it is worth every, single cent.
That’s my list of the best of the best body creams. Please let me know if you’ve tried any of the above products or if you have any recommendations for me. I’d love to hear from you!
