For a crisp, clean scent, try the Gilchrist & Soames London Collection Body Lotion and Shower Gel Duo.

Gilchrist & Soames

Birchbox Breakdown

London-based Gilchrist & Soames has been supplying products to top-tier spas for more than three decades, so it’s no surprise this lotion leaves our skin with a fresh-from-the-treatment-table glow. Marine extracts hydrate and pamper skin, and the fresh aqualeaf and citrus scent adds a bit of extra aromatherapy.

How it Works

The lotion harnesses the power of Japanese sea fennel extracts, which calm irritation and soothe skin. Other sea-based vitamins and minerals absorb into skin to nourish and reverse environmental damage. Meanwhile, the moisturizing cleanser forms a rich foam to pamper and gently cleanse. Nourishing vitamins and minerals in Japanese sea wrack smooth and refresh skin. Even better? This pair contains absolutely no phthalates, mineral oils, parabens, or petrol-derived materials.

How to Use

Massage a generous amount of the body wash into a rich lather on skin. Rinse away. Smooth body lotion onto skin after showering, or whenever skin feels dry.

Lotion is lovely!

I sampled the lotion and I really enjoyed it's smell and consistency. I felt the lotion was rich in texture and really moisturized my skin. The smell was clean and fresh...the smell is my favorite part of this product. I'd definitely buy it!

Decent
Purchased

I think it's an okay product- I've only had the body wash for two weeks and it's almost gone because I feel like I need a lot to really get the benefit of the body wash. The lotion doesn't absorb as well as others.

Body lotion was decent

I liked the scent of this product but thought that the lotion was a little bit too light and greasy.

LOVE IT!
Purchased

I love this stuff! I received the Lotion in my box and fell in love. It is the softest lotion and best smelling lotion I have ever used. I took a chance and bought the duo and I am so glad I did! Together, the wash and lotion smell like heaven on earth. Plus I've gotten so many complements on how fresh and soft my skin looks!

Sunblock Smoother

Normally, I use heavier moisterizers on my hands and feet. Initially, I thought this was too light for me. Then I went to put on sunblock the other day and I remembered this Spa Therapy body lotion. I use mineral sunblock with zinc that looks like 'whiteface' if I don't blend it properly. I was able to blend my sunblock more effectively becuase this product is so light. The sea salt smell is so othing and I love anything with coconut oil!

Disappointed

This product is okay. I am more disappointed that I received these as a sample in my monthly birch box. This product is a courtesy shampoo at hotels. I have samples just like these from a vacation I just went on, Only they were free :-(

Love it!

I got the body wash in my May box and was pleasantly surprised! I love the clean smell, I'm not big on heavily scented bath scents. It left my skin smooth and moist. I loved my sample so much, a friend of mine gave me hers :) Woohoo! My skin is very sensitive due to being on chemo for 8 months and having Lupus. Between the two, my skin is very dry and red. I love that this body wash wasn't heavily scented and doesn't have harsh chemicals! Thank you Birchbox for introducing me to this fabulous find, and to my girlfriend who gave me hers :)
