Click here for an updated Five Best body lotions.
No more hiding under winter woolies, spring is upon us. If your body is trying to tell you to stay in hibernation, then check out the best of our recommended body lotions. They will all help your skin look more supple and a couple will even do a bit of firming job (although no substitute for exercise, unfortunately).
There are two worthy survivors from our 2009 Five Best Body Lotion picks
, Osmotics Barrier Repair Body Silk ($85 in the TIA shop
) and Nutra-Lift’s White Chocolate Body Butter (also available in the TIA shop
). A new favorite of mine is the firming Xomega by Dermophisiologique (now in the TIA shop
) as is Arbonne’s new RE9 Advanced Firming Body Cream
. Joining Nutra-Lift at the great value for money end of the spectrum is Aubrey Organics Rosa Mosqueta Moisturizing Cream
