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.

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.
