COPD and the three body lotions

Just like Goldilocks and her quest for the perfect porridge, chair and bed – I am always looking for the perfect everyday body lotion. I bet you thought I was going to say scrub didn’t you? Well body lotion and I have a funny relationship; my ultimate desire to have smooth soft skin can be achieved with body scrubs but to keep my skin hydrated I need a body lotion.

I think a lot of us struggle to finish body lotions because get we bored and move on the next thing which is the reason why I’m trying to finish so many! And I’ve been following Bristol Beauty Blog in her epic quest to finish her stash and I think she’s doing much better than moi at the moment. Anyway I thought I would share with you what I’m currently trying to finish with the caveat that this does not represent my stash – just some lotions from the same brand.

Korres Body Butter – This is labelled for extra dry skin and it means it. Although this has a nice texture it is way too thick for me and just sits on my skin, takes ages to absorb and I only notice the benefit after I’ve had it on all day. However the great thing about these tubes is that you get every last bit of lotion out of them and they are easy to travel with so you don’t have to worry about spillage. If your epidermis is dry as the desert then this is for you!

Verdict: Too thick

Crabtree & Evelyn Body Lotion – I love C&E  and I really think they are trying to overcome their old lady rep. These lotions are from their classic Goat’s Milk and Aloe Vera range which also has shower gels and soaps. These lotions absorb really quickly so they are perfect for summer months when you don’t want to feel sticky from using lotion but still want hydration and a light scent. Unfortunately nice weather is thin on the ground in this country so I can only use these a couple months of the year.

Verdict: Too thin

Haus of Gloi – Yes the illustrious HoG have not only captivated me with their body scrubs but their Pumpkin Butter and Body Emulsions are also the DAWGS! The reason being is that they absorb quickly, smell divine, yet are thick enough to hydrate all day. I don’t know what what HoG founder Britton has done, but for my skin she has nailed it with these concoctions. And I love that they bring out different things each season so the boredom factor gets eliminated too!

Verdict: Just right

So Skin Scrubbers have you used any these? What is your all time fave body lotion or don’t you bother with it?

The Haus of Gloi products sound amazing! I don’t use body lotion all that often but I do love a bit of Crab Tree & Evelyn….my most used body lotion is probably Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula…smells GORGEOUS! xx

I’m trying to work through my body lotion stash at the moment although I have to say the Haus of Gloi products are tempting – I’ve heard so many good things about the brand.

Yeah so did I and I resisted for a year and then I won some of their products and I was hooked. I love that they are an indie brand too, no corporate bs just good all fashioned scrub love! xoxo
