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.

Hotel lotion
Sampled

My skin is very sensitive, so I was hesitant to use this product other than on my arms and legs. It smells ok but is very thin and doesn't appear to do much moisturizing. It has a light smell to it, which isn't overly-offensive, but also isn't that great. It's fine, just... well, it's fine.

Small sample of hotel brand
Sampled

This brand of lotion is commonly available at hotels. It's light and easily absorbable, but not particularly exciting. It has a light scent that I'd describe as a mixture of sea water and green tea, but it doesn't linger for longer.

Meh.
Sampled

Pretty underwhelmed over finding this in my box. It looked like something from a hotel bathroom. Smells and feels like it, too. The smell isn't awful, but it's definitely nothing to write home about, and definitely isn't a scent I'd gravitate towards. But scent aside, it's function - moisturize - falls way short. It's a watery consistency that feels greasy when applied. And once the greasiness subsides, it feels as though I never applied moisturize in the first place. Unimpressed. Wouldn't even keep this in the car as a "just in case" product.

Men's Lotion?
Sampled

I liked everything about this lotion EXCEPT the smell. It's almost... woodsy? Maybe it's just the size of the sample, but it did remind me of something you'd find at an upscale hotel. I'm sure they're trying to be gender-neutral, but I really dislike the scent.

nothing special
Sampled

This lotion seemed like it was a banal lotion from your hotel samples. I mean I honestly did not like this at all. I did not like the smell it had none! I did not like the weakness in moisturizer. I felt as if I was being ripped off with this sample. It may have appeal due to its name or that its "fancy" but not effective.

Hotel brand lotion
Sampled

This is a hotel brand lotion that smells like a sickly cream. It isn't particularly great at moisturizing either.

Apparently I'm not alone-luxury hotel sample

How funny that that at least another reviewer thought it was like a hotel sample. I will say I'd be psyched if I went to and this was actually the little box of lotion. However, its a sample of lotion that a luxury hotel, like the Ritz Carlton versus the kind you would get in a 3 star hotel.
It's very moisturizing-though lotioney feeling for a bit after applying it is the price you pay for that.

Smells Like Jergens
Sampled

Honestly, I hate getting lotion in my box, but sometimes I am pleasantly surprised and end up loving the lotion. This is not one of those times. This is basically a 16 dollar bottle of Jergens. Unimpressed.
