Say goodbye to summer scaly skin and hello to a healthy-looking body with our pick of the best moisturising body lotions, body oils, body scrubs and body washes.
Not quite sure why you’d need all of those to keep your body soft and smooth leading into the colder months? Allow us to inform you…
Why do I need a…body wash?
Quite obviously, you need body wash to keep your body clean. But did you know that some harsh soaps and body washes can actually strip your body of the natural oils you need to keep your skin soft? Opt for body wash that’s soap-free and chock-full of moisturising ingredients to keep your skin soft and supple.
Body wash we love: Dove Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash
Why we love it: The mild and hypoallergenic formula will ensure that even the most sensitive skin is nourished.
Body wash we love: The Body Shop White Musk Libertine
Why we love it: Not only does the body wash moisturise and condition your skin, but it contains Community Fair Trade ingredients, so you know you’re supporting a good cause.
Why do I need a…body scrub?
Whether used on wet or dry skin, a body scrub will help rid your body of dead skin (you’d be surprised at how much dead skin can build u
p), leaving you with fresh, soft and smooth skin. Make sure you don’t scrub too hard or too often with your exfoliator – you don’t want to remove healthy skin cells, which will leave your skin red and raw.
Body scrub we love: Ecoya Body Exfoliators
Why we love it: Each variant contains natural bamboo stem extract, leaving your skin smooth and soft.
Body scrub we love: Eco Tools Body Scrub
Why we love it: Exfoliating walnut shells in the formula will make dry, flaky skin a thing of the past.
Why do I need a…body lotion?
Used regularly, a body lotion will keep your skin from becoming dry and cracked and will make sure that your skin is constantly moisturised and nourished. The best time to apply body lotion is when your skin is moist (so after a bath or shower) so it locks in the moisture that’s already there.

Why we love it: Omega oils, rosehip oil, aloe vera, shea butter, macadamia oil, and sweet almond oil – need we say more?
Body lotion we love: La Prairie Cellular Energizing Body Lotion
Why we love it: It’ll keep your skin soft and smooth and help fight off wrinkles. What’s not to love?
Why do I need a…body oil?
If you’re in need of some ultra-hydrating products, then a body oil will be your best friend. Body oils penetrate deeply to give your skin a massive boost of hydration. Even better, body oils can be used to heal skin irritations like eczema and psoriasis, prevent ageing, and reduce stretch marks.
Body oil we love: Jojoba Company 100% Natural Australian Jojoba, $19.95, 02 9651 3030
Why we love it: The body oil is a multi-tasking wonder – it deeply moisturises skin, it can be used for a massage, and it removes make-up.
Body oil we love: MOR Marshmallow Body Oil
Why we love it: You can be sure that with ingredients like marshmallow, mango, and peach, you’ll smell good enough to eat.
