Personally I have found the thicker body butter moisturiser formulas are much more hydrating for the skin because of the much thicker consistancy however not everyone likes them and prefer a light formulation. A couple of my favourites include; a new one to me from my latest Glossy Box is the 'Nip+Fab Dry Skin Body Butter' this moisturiser has a thick cream formulation similar to the 'Body Shop' body butters but slightly lighter and feels really light and creamy on the skin and sinks in really nicely. Mine is in the Pistachio Sunday scent and although I wouldn't have picked this iout of the scents available it has grown on my as I have continued to use it. It has a distint nutty scent which I change my mind if I like it everytime I smell it however one thing I really like is that I can still smell it on my skin the next morning. Big points for that.
Another product I have loved using recently is the 'Sanctuary Body Moisture Spary' which similar to the Palmers butter provides more an oil for the skin which gives a great sheen and beautiful moisture too. This comes in a spray which makes application ridiculously fast however a little messier, if you have non carpeted floor beware things can get slippery. I really like this new form of spray moisturisers which although may not be as moisturising as the thick butters but by making it super quick and easy I think it is more likely that people will use this much more regularly which in turn probably hydrates the skin just the same. I have a full review on this moisturiser here.
So theres a couple of my favourite moisturisers at the minute which I find really keep my skin soft and hydrated and now girlies i'm afraid I have to say if you want to stop yourself from getting flaky or itchy dry skin this is one of the main factors that is going to help so pull your finger out and start slapping it on. One last note in this nicer weather one moisturiser you cannot use enough of is sunscreen, its really important to protect you skin against the sun as not only does it contribute to aging and cancer if you get burnt it bloody hurts!
Thanks for stopping by, bye for now.x
