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.

Not enough moisture
Sampled

The scent of this lotion reminded me a bit of cucumber melon, all grown up, more spa like. I didn't find it to be terribly moisturizing, but I do tend to prefer a bit heavier body butters in the winter months.

Just alright, handy lotion
Sampled

This was a perfect travel sized sample. The smell is delightful but not ever something I would choose when picking a scent. It's lotion. That's about all I can say. It is nothing special.

Not my scent
Sampled

This lotion absorbed well and quickly leaving my skin soft to the touch with a strong scent which normally I like however this scent is not for me. It reminded me of all the perfumes my grandmother owns.
