Body Lotion Recommendations

I'm looking for something to slather on at night or before work that smells nice and summery/fresh.

I'm sorted for face with SPF stuff for day and jollop for night time so it's just a body lotion that doesn't break the bank - I'd be happy to pay up to £15 if it was a fairly decent sized bottle.

I am trying to break my perfume habit grin as I wear it far too much, so recommendations for a nice lightly scented body lotion would be great.

Slightly over budget but this is what I mainly use. The bottle is huge and you only need a small amount so it’s very good value for money.

I always use Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing which is £6 but usually on offer somewhere.

It's great for dry skin but absorbs quickly so you can get dressed within minutes.

Sorry. Over budget again but only a small amount needed. This is a beautiful scent

I like Garnier Body Repair Body Lotion (in a red bottle). Costs about a fiver from Superdrug. It's rich but absorbs quickly and doesn't feel sticky.

The Korres body milks are lovely, Santorini vine is lovely for summer

Palmers Coconut Body lotion.
It's cheap as chips and smells lovely.
Also Rituals Dao body cream.
Aveeno Cream to oil - smells similar to L'occitane Almond body lotion which is expensive.

Thanks so much everyone for the recommendations, I haven't heard of half of these so this is great and I might have to treat myself to more than one grin

Thanks xx

Lovely body lotion, the best I've used. Really changes the look and feel of your skin BUT it's eyewateringly expensive. I still think it is worth it, non greasy and like a long drink for your skin.

Childs Farm moisturiser is the best I've used and I have used many!! My legs have really bad eczema and this totally clears it up. It'll be in the baby section in Boots but don't let this put you off- its incredible!

Fenjal from boots
It’s lovely they do a whole set inc shower mouse oil sprays and lotions
Most of it is under a fiver

Please choose one that doesn’t require the needless suffering of innocent animals.
