Bionic Asks: What’s your fave body lotion?

by Bionic Beauty on 18.Feb.2009 · 6 comments

I adore lotion. It’s one of my relaxation rituals… slathering my legs and arms with my current favorite body lotion. Skin ends up soft and dewy and usually lightly scented. I choose my favorite body lotions based on a complex algorithm taking into account cost per ounce, scent, ingredients, and how it performs (or reviews on fellow beauty blogs if I haven’t purchased it yet). In reality, this little algorithm is all in my head, but I do base all my tests of body lotions on the above criteria.

With that said, my current favorite body lotions are…

  • Y-Y’s 1000 Cranes – I’m in love with this lotion. It’s incredible!
  • Crabtree and Evelyn’s Aromatherapy Distillations Conditioning body lotion – This is a perfect scent for me and a lovely consistency for summer.
  • Spell Cosmetics’ Sun and Surf Lotion – My absolute favorite scent in a lotion is coconut. Beyond the relaxation of lotion itself, Spell’s Sun & Surf reminds me of warm summers, sunshine, and cool drinks. It’s a vacation in a bottle. 😉

What are your favorite body lotions? Do you change lotions with each bottle or stick to your never-failing brand?

I really like the Olay Quench line.

I would have to say SallyB’s SkinYummies Eco Body Lotion in Jasmine Rose!!!

Kimberly, I like the Olay Quench too! Not sure why I don’t have any bottles laying around, but I really liked the samples I got for free online. I think I still have a few of those. :)

Jen, Darn you! That lotion sounds right up my alley!! (Insert fake Grrrrr here.)

I was at the health food store this week and spotted this really cool lotion- Coconut Skin Trip by Mountain Ocean. It smells like COCONUT! So you know I had to pick it up to try for summery goodness! Review to come. :)

I’m so boring – I like the extreme therapy or collodial oatmeal stuff from the drugstore. I really like Suave’s Oatmeal lotion – no scent so it won’t compete with my perfume, and very soothing on my sensitive skin.

I LOVE Maui Tropical Soaps Coconut Mango body lotion. Yummy smelling. Organic too.

Right now my fave is Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. It is the only lotion that keeps my skin soft throughout the day, long after I’ve applied it. Plus, it is slowly getting rid of the scaly patch that has long been plaguing my leg.
