Back to Basics: The Best Body Lotions

Welcome to this installment of Back to Basics. These amazing moisturizing body lotions are my all time favorites. I have used them for years and have never had any kind of allergic reactions or dry skin. What are some of your favorite body lotions?

Kiehl's Creme de Corps, $26, is a treat for your skin when it is feeling just a little too dry or you've recently been in the sun. Just a little of this super rich moisturizer goes a long way.

I received a bottle of this as a gift about seven years ago and have never looked back. Beta-carotene gives it a natural deep yellow color. It is recommended to use for ten straight days to achieve optimum results.

It is available in three sizes: a 4.2 oz travel bottle is $16, an 8.4 oz bottle sells is $26, and a 16.9 oz bottle is $42. If you buy the larger size it comes with a pump for easy dispensing, it costs $44 (shown).

To see more of my favorite body lotions of all time,

Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion For Normal to Dry Skin, $7.99, has been in my house every since I was a wee little tot. Owned by Pfizer, it was developed by dermatologists to promote more supple, smooth and healthier skin.

It has a very clean, non-greasy feel and it quickly penetrates your skin so that there is no residue left on your body as you are getting dressed. It won't clog your pores and is available in two sizes: 6 oz and 16 oz at most drugstores and pharmacies.

Biotherm Lait Corporel Anti-Drying Body Milk, $20, is the lightest of the bunch - but don't let that fool you. Just because it has a thin texture, it still helps to repair dry skin, restore your skin’s protective barrier and protect its natural elasticity. It is available in two sizes: a 6.7 oz bottle costs $20 and a 13.5 oz bottle costs $35.

I've always used Lubriderm with SPF 15, I try and protect myself from the sun as much as I can.

Fredric Fekkai La Creme Luxueuse: the most luscious creamy body cream I've ever felt and the most light scent that I think would be pleasing to anyone. I actually buy it as gifts for female clients sometimes and they go gaga over it! I beauty marked it. I'm glad to see a kiehl's review, I've always wanted to try their product but never knew where to start! :D

I use to sell Kiehls at a boutique a couple years ago in college...Creme de Corps was a best seller....I hadn't heard of it before then, but it is amazing and after trying it you pretty much don't wantt anything else, because you don't need to put a lot on and it stay in your skin for hours. Just don't get the Lightweight version, its just not the same :)

I absolutely love Burt's Bees Sensitive Skin Lotion - it's light and slides right on. It's been amazing for my dry skin.

I adore the Kiehl's Creme De Corps, it's expensive but it's the only thing that makes a lasting difference on my skin.

I just bought hand cream that I keep on my desk here at work - it's Johnson's extra care healing hand cream. I was a little skeptical at first b/c of the word "cream" in the name, I thought it would be too greasy. But I bought it anyway and I LOVE IT... it smells good, and absorbs very quickly, and as the label says it lasts through multiple hand washings.

Curel...I love Curel. I use it as an all over lotion and as an eye cream at night. It is so creamy but not greasy...and it is cheap.
