And the winner for Best of 2013: Anti-Aging Body Product is...
The Organic Pharmacy Body Lotion ($79) conjures up exotic, old-fashioned (in a good way), hedonistic guilty pleasures with its musky scent of rose. With this as context, you can see why I fell for The Organic Pharmacy Body Lotion. This gorgeous body lotion makes me feel as if I am being extra nice to myself, which invariably puts me in a good mood. It makes my skin feel very soft and is helpful for dry, sensitive areas. It's probably my favorite body lotion of all time and I would enthusiastically recommend it for all ages and most (if not all) skin types. It's why I'm choosing it as winner of this year's Best Anti-Aging Body Product.

The Organic Pharmacy Body Lotion Rose is a lightweight lotion that absorbs almost instaneously, leaving no greasy residue. It is totally wearable on warm, sultry days, but also plenty nourishing for moisture-starved winter skin. The aforementioned musky rose scent is pronounced on application and, though it dissipates, does leave a lingering perfume. Personally, I love it.
Formulated with 95% organic ingredients, The Organic Pharmacy Body Lotion Rose is dominated by emollient oils and shea butter. It also contains one of my favorite ingredients: phospholipids. They attract water and hold on to it, key for any effective moisturizer. The lotion also contains bilberry--which is high in antioxidant flavanoids--soothing honey and, of course, rose geranium.
I discovered The Organic Pharmacy during a trip to the UK about a year ago. Their natural, luxurious products have started to become essential staples in my home. I've clearly fallen for the Body Lotion Rose, but I also adore The Organic Pharmacy Rose Plus Brightening Complex ($189). And I'm especially eager to try The Organic Pharmacy Rose Shower Gel ($45) after reading Emily’s review.
