My favourite body moisturisers



I really hate moisturising. I have hated it since I was a child for the sheer sticky feeling it leaves. However, if I was to go back in my life, I would have stuck it out to combat stretch marks!

Now as an adult, I try to moisturise my body every night before bed. I have found three moisturisers that don't break the bank, sink in quickly and keep my skin in tip top form. Firstly, Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser seems like a gimmick but I assume you it's not. It sinks in quickly, smells amazing (it comes in three scents but I love the clean Cocoa Radiant variety) and makes moisturising a simple job. This is my go-to if I am really tired or need to target a very specific area as I can just spray this on. A little bit more expensive but worth it is La Roche-Posay Lipikar Baume AP+. This thick formula is perfect for anyone with skin conditions or severe dryness. I would use this a lot on my upper arms that tend to get a little bit dry. It does not have a noticeable scent and the formula dries in very quickly. If a scented moisturiser is what you are looking for, Fleurs de Cerisier by L'Occitane is a must buy for you. This is my fun moisturiser as is has shimmer in it! It looks lovely on the arms and chest plus the scent really lingers all day. Lastly, a recent addition to my moisturiser line up is Garnier Oil Body. This is my favourite moisturiser to use before I tan or if I am heading out and need my legs to shine like J-Lo. This is super hydrating and a real joy to use.
