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."

Classy
Sampled

I love this scent! It's low key but makes me feel classy when I wear it. I would consider the scent unisex as well . It absorbs very quickly and doesn't feel gunky on your skin after a hot day. I was not surprised to read that it is provided in high end hotels and spas.

A little too light feeling
Sampled

I don't really moisturize very often. When I do, I like to use a luxurious feeling lotion. This moisturizer is fantastic in theory, but just not right for me.

Great and not too expensive

Sample has lasted a while and it smells great. I'm overloaded with lotions right now, but I would definitely buy if I was in need of lotion.

Nice Scent but just okay lotion
Sampled

If you are looking for a pretty, subtle perfume scent, this stuff is great. I like wearing scented lotions instead of perfumes, and this lotion is beautiful. However, as far as hydration goes, it is far too watery to actually moisturize your skin.
