Gilchrist & Soames

Birchbox Breakdown

“Eco-friendly” and “spa-grade” don’t typically go hand-in-hand, but this luxe body lotion from Gilchrist & Soames manages to be both. A longtime supplier of some of the world’s most exclusive hotels, resorts, and spas, the London-born brand is dedicated to creating high-quality products while minimizing its environmental footprint. Infused with natural emollients like glycerin and honey, this fast-absorbing formula instantly hydrates parched skin anywhere on the body. What’s more, it’s free of potentially irritating ingredients and leaves behind a light, crisp scent.

How it Works

This natural hydrator is loaded with antioxidant-rich botanicals like red tea, soy, ginkgo biloba, grape seed, and milk thistle. Naturally derived glycerin and honey provide instant moisture, with a hydrating boost from brassica plant extract. Always cruelty-free, this formula comes to you free of parabens, phthalates, petrol-derived ingredients, mineral oil, urea, DEA, TEA, and propylene glycol.

How to Use

Smooth onto damp skin after showering, focusing on problem zones like knees and elbows.

Meh...
Sampled

I wasn't very excited about this product from the get-go. It looks, and smells, just like those sample lotions you get in a hotel room. A good word to describe this product is "meh."

not very moisturizing
Sampled

this was not strong enough to handle my winter-dry skin. it has an appealing light citrusy scent, which gilchrist and soames is known for, but my skin felt dry and tight again after a few hours and i couldn't wait to go home and put on my regular body cream.

Great lotion
Sampled

I enjoyed how smoothly this product applied. It didn't go on thick but it moisturized with the intensity of vaseline without the sticky goopy feeling. The smell was not overpowering yet light and refreshing so not to interfere with the perfume I wear.

My New Favorite Lotion!
Sampled

This product makes my skin feel incredible. I absolutely love it! I use it after I shower and before going out, and I refuse to cover my legs after using it because I want everyone to feel how soft they feel!

Eh

Not impressed. The smell/ texture/ moisturizing quality is ok but not something I'd buy again. It Almost reminds me of hotel lotion come to think of it.

So Yummy!

This is such a wonderfully lightweight, strong smelling lotion. It was great to get a delicious scent from such a lightweight lotion. It was surprisingly moisturizing too!

My favorite smell!
Sampled

The smell of this lotion is amazing! Not only is it lotion but it's a perfume lotion and it smells so..richy. Like something a rich lady would wear. It definitely smells like London if I could smell London.

Love!

Didn't think this lotion would do a thing for my extremely dry skin, but I very pleasantly surprised at how soft and smooth my skin felt after using this very light lotion.
