Lotions, Potions & Oils, Oh My!: My Favorite Skin-Soothing Solutions

Lotions, Potions & Oils, Oh My!: My Favorite Skin-Soothing Solutions

Almost every woman has a favorite lotion and I am no exception. Slathering on lotions and oils to moisturize my face and body is a MUST for me.

Because of this compulsion to keep my skin smooth, I have acquired a collection of amazing skin-soothing products in my bathroom cabinets. And since I am never one to keep my beauty secrets to myself, I figured I would share product recommendations with you. 

philosophy's Amazing Grace Firming Body Lotion Emulsion

This is eternally one of my favorite philosophy offerings. After using this lotion, my skin immediately feels fresh and clean.

I like how this product is not heavily scented but still has a pleasantly classic smell. Its formula is lightweight and not at all greasy. Another perk is that it contains Shea butter and natural oils!

NIVEA's Smooth Daily Moisture Lotion

NIVEA's Smooth Daily Moisture Lotion (Price varies by retailer but is typically less than $10 for a 16 oz bottle)

NIVEA's Smooth Daily Moisture Lotion (Price varies by retailer but is typically less than $10 for a 16 oz bottle)

My skin feels hydrated and replenished after using this lotion. Its smells simple and mild, making it great for anyone to use.

Because of its rich formula, a little goes a long way, which is always a perk in my book. Plus, this product is inexpensive, accessible and keeps skin hyper-nourished. What more could you even want?

Bath & Body WorksAromatherapy Lavender Vanilla Body Mist


This body mist is amazing and it definitely delivers on its claim that it can “boost body, mind & mood”.

Infused with lavender essentials and vanilla, the scent is nothing short of heavenly.  It is just so refreshing, you know?

Oh and this scent is also available in a whole range of other bath and beauty products.

Neutrogena's Body Oil 

Neutrogena's Body Oil ($21.99 for a 32 oz bottle)

Neutrogena's Body Oil ($21.99 for a 32 oz bottle)

I dab this body oil on myself post-shower to lock in hydration and I highly suggest that you start doing the same.

Not only does this NOT leave a slimy residue on your skin like far too many body oils seem to do, it is also fast-absorbing and it works like a charm.

Apply this from head-to-toe on a regular basis and watch how quickly your skin begins to flourish. 

I'm crossing my fingers that you too are able to achieve happy, healthy skin.
