Why stop at just one spa treatment? Try Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Wash too.

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

Extracts of Japanese sea fennel calm irritation and soothe skin. Other sea-based vitamins and minerals absorb into skin to moisturize it and reverse environmental damage. And best of all, the formula contains absolutely no phthalates, mineral oils, parabens, or petrol-derived ingredients.

How to Use

Smooth a generous amount onto skin after showering, or whenever skin feels dry.

Nice feel, effective
Sampled

I thought this lotion had a very nice feel to it, soaked in easily and left my skin feeling hyudrated but not greasy. I was not a huge fan of the scent. I would purchase this in another scent.

smells great

This lotion smells great and very fresh, and does not go on greasy, but could be more moisturizing! However, it is perfect for the more humid days.

Silky Smoothe

Living in Northwestern Minnesota, you can't have enough lotion in the long, dry winters! This is by far an amazing lotion and I'll recommend it to everyone.

Love the Scent!
SampledPurchased

I received this as a monthly sample and loved it so much I purchased the full size!
The scent is so relaxing and "spa" like. A definite aromatherapy experience! As a lotion, not a good as my current standard lotion, but I like this one more for the smell than anything else.

I love this!

When I received this in my birchbox I was so excited. It became the lotion I told everyone about that smells like vacation. Wonderful aroma and very calming without any greasy residue left over. I completely used the whole thing in about a week :( just have to buy it now!

This lotion was a little to thin for me. I did like the smell and its sample size is perfect for purses.

Not my thing

Got the sample and Im just really not a huge fan of spa like lotions. I added it to my gym bag as a back up when I shower there. It does smell great.

Smells Good
Sampled

This lotion definitely smells wonderful but I find the lotion is a bit on the thin side. It would be great if it was a thiker lotion that would last longer and moisturize better.
