5 Luxe Lotions That Could Change How You Feel About Your Skin

We recognize the necessity of having a basic, inexpensive body lotion around for your daily post-shower moisturization ritual, but sometimes…a girl’s gotta have a little pampering in her life. Even if you don’t quite have the cash to indulge in fancy spa treatments, this selection of luxe body creams will give you that blissed-out feeling when you need it most.

With their exquisite scents, smooth textures, and supremely moisturizing ingredients, these luxe lotions provide that day-at-the-spa feeling you so crave — in the privacy of your own bathroom. Plus, you’ll get major bang for your buck: Even with daily use, a little goes a long way with these pretty potions, so one jar will keep you silky soft clear through to Labor Day.

Perfect for super-dry skin, this cream is as rich as it gets. With cocoa and shea butters, plus seven delightful scents to choose from, you’ll be glowing and perfumed all summer long. Our fave is the crisp green apple and pink tulip fragrance of Giulietta.

What could be more indulgent that covering your whole body with Crème de la Mer? Featuring the same powerful marine anti-agers (a.k.a. “Miracle Broth”) as the renowned face products, this concoction will take your bod from damaged and dry to baby soft in no time.

We like our skin to be hydrated, but not greasy. This dessert-inspired body cream is packed with nourishing vitamins A, C, & E, but the whipped texture keeps it from feeling too heavy. We’re also digging the fig tart scent — so yummy!

Molton Brown’s heavenly, scented body lotion has a floral blend of lotus flower, camellia, and davana blossom (a rare South Indian plant prized for its soothing essential oils). The velvety texture is truly intoxicating on your skin, and we love the goddess glow our legs give off after we layer it on.

From chic, certified organic line Red Flower comes this lotion scented with Spanish gardenia. It combines organic flowers, bio-dynamic honey, and wild crafted botanical extracts to soften skin, while (bonus) also being free of parabens and sulfates. Healthy and indulgent…if only we could say the same about our summer ice-cream habit!
