Click here for an updated article: Five Best for Body 2014

The last Five Best for body was published at the beginning of the year and I think this update demonstrates that the quest for better can really pay off. This is an all-new Five Best body lotions that treat chin to toe with the reverence afforded by your favorite facial serum. Antiaging body lotions are finally coming of age.

The anti-aging heavy hitter is Osmotics Barrier Repair Body Silk (now available in our store).Sparituals Instinctual Organic Moisturizing Lotion, Smooth N Silky and Nutra-Lift’s White Chocolate Body Butter (you can buy it in the TIA store) are in the great value for money category as well as being proud purveyors of good ingredients. Also a good buy is gift-worthy Bubalina's pumpkin body butter. Although they haven't made it into this new Five Best, honorable mentions should go to Terralina (a very good moisturizing olive-based lotion) and Pevonia (my only quibble with it is that is a bit pricey for the amount you get) and Chella's Face and Body Lotion.

    Ore, found it in a spa in New Mexico. I use the shea butter and found it has made my skin feel so much better. I have always had issues with dryness. Since I cant ever get my scalp issues under control I also have been putting it on my scalp and I doubt its the Zents, maybe its the shea butter that is getting the scalp scuz off hair might even be growing.

    Hi Marta,
    I found a SmoothNSilky site online, but they are selling it for $36. Can you tell me where I can find it for $19.95?

    okay, since I am on a roll here and cannot get enough of these products..I don't think you ever reviewed it but the Zents Mandarin lotion is my ALL TIME favorite..I had super dry arms all my life and this rich lotion with shea butter did the more dryness...just soft, smooth skin AND I love the husband loves the Ore scent...that one is stronger but nice on him.
