Gilchrist & Soames London Collection Body Lotion

“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.

Oh my gosh, I smelt it inside the pot and it seemed okay and not too offensive. But when I put it on my skin, I felt like I tweaked of bo!! Will never buy this ugh ick!

Lackluster
Sampled

Lackluster is the most flattering word I could use for this. I agree with the reviewer who said it was similar to the lotion samples you get at any hotel. Not impressed.

Overwhelming fragrence
Sampled

Thin, almost watery formula that sank right into my skin. However, the fragrance is so strong...and it's a fake floral-y fragrance that lingers for a LONG time. I just can't get past the odor of this product.

Didn't care for the scent at all. The texture felt a bit greasy.

SORRY NOT BODY LOTION
Sampled

When I buy a body lotion, I want it thick and to last all day on my body. Mainly in winter. I have got better quality from some hotels I have stayed at. When the first ingredient is water, I tend to stay away. Sorry just being honest.

Smell
Sampled

I absolutely hated the smell of this lotion. It in of itself was ok but the smell made it impossible to use.

hotel lotion
Sampled

This lotion was thin and unappealing. It reminded me of the free lotions you get from staying at HolidayInn. Not a fan. Did nothing to tackle my extremely dry skin.

Did not like the smell
Sampled

I felt like this product smelled very bad, it almost had an "old lady-ish" smell to it. Very earthy. Great size and if you like the smell you would love this product.

Nice Lotion, Not My Favorite Scent
Sampled

I've used Gilchrist & Soames products many times in the past and usually love them. This lotion, however, had such a strong, pungent smell that I couldn't get it off fast enough. Even after washing my hands several times I swear I could still smell it. This product isn't my favorite, but I overall like this brand's products.

Too perfumey/like cologne
Sampled

This lotion was way to perfume-y for me! (And smelled more like cologne than a feminine scent.) I'm also super picky about what goes into the creams and lotions I put on my body these days, specifically whether it's phthalate-free and/or full of a bunch of nasties. I didn't see enough good or friendly natural ingredients listed here. At least it was made in the USA (despite being a London-based company)! But overall, there's too many better, high-quality lotions out there and there's no reason for me to come back to this one.
