Winter Body Moisturisers

One of my few resolutions this year was to use moisturisers. I feel like an awful beauty blogger saying this but it is often a step I like to skip but it’s incredibly important especially in the current cold temperatures!

Vaseline Spray & Go £4.99
This has to be my number one go-to moisturiser at the moment and I can’t see myself ever living without it not. In the winter the last thing I want to do is strip down in the cold to cream myself but this makes the process super quick and easy, a couple of sprays here, there and everywhere. Rub it in super quick and get dressed and back into bed. Simple but effective, keeps my body hydrated in record time. I have actually been using this every night which is such an achievement for me!

Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Body Buttercream £10.50
I adore the smell of this product, nothing beats it! It smells of Pistachio, Almond and vanilla but also has nourishing oils. I use this one in the morning after a bath as it is perfect for legs and all over the body. Although it is quite heavily scented I wouldn’t say it lingers for too long. I have heard there is a Body Milk to go with this which I’m hoping smells the same!

The Body Shop Body Butter
An all time favourite that both my mother and I have been using for years and years are The Body Shop Body Butters. I personally don’t mind what scent I use but always reach for it when I need intensive moisturisers, specifically on my legs as it adds a nice sheen but isn’t greasy.

Jurlique Enriching Body Cream
If I need something to carry around either because I feel my skin is particularly dry and I have my arms out or simply for a weekend away I’ve been loving the Jurlique Enriching Body Cream. It’s in a travel friendly, light, squeezy bottle and isn’t too heavy so nice to apply on the go, even as hand cream.

What is your favourite body moisturiser in the colder months?

    I love the bodyshop butters. They are just so moisturising :)! The coconut or Brazil nut ones are my fave although I'm using the vanilla one at the moment. X

    I'm also guilty of skipping this step even though I know I really shouldn't. This post has got me thinking it might be time to introduce some new moisturizers into my routine! Thanks for sharing all these products!

    I use both the Soap and Glory smoothie star buttercream and lotion, I love them both but unfortunately the lotion doesn't have a pistachio note, still delectable though.

    Soap & Glory do the best body lotions & butters! I've been cheating a lot in the winter and using the Nivea In Shower moisturiser a lot so I don't have to do it when I get out! xx

    I love an old Avon one, Moisture Therapy 😉 It is oily but sinks in right away

    Hmmm…these moisturizers seems like really great products to try out. I think I wanna try the Jurlique Enriching Body cream

    I really would love to try the Spray and go! xx

    I love Soap & Glory body butters but I really want to try that Vaseline spray and go! x

    I'm totally with you on this. In winter I always tend to skip moisturizing my body because the last thing I want to do is put a cold lotion or cream all over my body after getting out of a hot bath or shower. Any other season, I thoroughly enjoy this step but in winter I can't seem to be bothered.

    I love the body shop body butters! they all smell so good and are great for the winter months! My favourite at the moment is Raspberry one!

    I've been wondering for ages if the spray and go is a bit of a con but after this review it sounds as though it isn't! Great news!

    I want to try that Body Shop butter, I only own the peach kind which is way too summery for this time of year. Lovely post.

    I usually reach for S&Gs Smoothie Star body lotion during winter, it smells scrummy and is really moisturising as well. Need to try the Vaseline spray as I heard so many great things about it! x

    My current moisturiser is The Body Shops chocomania – it is heaven. I have to try and stop myself from eating it straight out of the tub, it smells THAT good!! I also think it's a great winter smell!!

    This is one I often skip too, oops!
    I wouldn't mind trying the Vaseline Spray Moisturisers but I do prefer my body butters when I get round to using them.
