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 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.

Refreshing!
Purchased

I bought these products based on the previous reviews. I tried the body wash last night. Light pretty smell...easy to rinse. It was refreshing to use. I particularly liked the smell because it wasn't too strong and overpowering.

I used the lotion following my shower. Good coverage yet non greasy. Again the smell was light and pretty and not overpowering.

After using both my skin felt pampered and hydrated. I would definitely purchase both products again!

nice extra lotion to have around

I love the smell, and it does a decent job of moisturizing. Not something I'd buy full-size since I need something a little heavier for dry, winter weather, but it will be nice to have for travel.

Love these two!

I love these two products! The combo makes your skin feel slinky smooth, and they both smell amazing. It's like a mini spa in your own home!

Spa Therapy Body Lotion

I received this body lotion in my February Birchbox. While it does have a very nice smell to it I do currently use other products that do a better job hydrating my skin.

The scent is not strong enough for me

I love Gilchrist and Soames, particularly the scent of their shampoo, but this product is not strongly scented enough for my taste. I like it; it is just not strong enough.

Gilchrist & Soames

I only received the body wash. I loved the smell. It reminded me of a spa by the ocean which I needed in this terrible winter weather. I think it did an ok job as far as moisturizing.

Good for dry skin, but no scent

I only received the bath wash as a sample. It really didn't leave a scent on my skin, but my skin was not dry feeling after my shower.

Smells great, lacks in moisture

I only received the body lotion. The scent was nice, but it took awhile to absorb. My skin feels soft but not moisturized. Applied a second layer and same result.

Made me feel pampered

I tried the lotion and was impressed by the light, clean scent. The lotion was moisturizing and comfortable and not too greasy.

okay.

I only received the body lotion, but I personally liked it pretty well. It wasn't greasy and it absorbed in pretty well. I like the scent, it smell clean. I don't think that it's something I'd go out and buy a full size of for myself but the travel size was nice and the product was pretty good.
