Keep your skin well hydrated this spring, with one of these seven beautiful body lotions.

As spring approaches, our bodies start to adjust to the transitional weather of cold to hot, dry to wet and of course if you live in Sydney, wild winds too.

To battle dry skin, that can appear at this time of year, we tried and tested a range of body lotions and came up with these top seven:

Nivea Crème $9.16

Nivea is one of the highest selling body creams in the world.

This body cream is excellent if you have very dry skin. Nivea Crème is the original cream formulation by Nivea,  created in 1911.

It’s a classic moisturiser, which is preservative free and although suited to most skin types, it’s rich creamy texture; which includes paraffin, a well-known ingredient for rich hydration.

The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Soothing & Restoring Body Butter $28

Perfect for all skin types, this body butter has been specially formulated to restore and protect your skin against harsh weather conditions and provide 48 hours of intense hydration to help calm tight itchy and dry skin.

Enriched with organic almond milk and honey to provide much-needed nutrients to your skin. This body butter is very silky to use, but don’t expect a strong scent to go with it. The scent of almond and honey is very subtle.
