For one-two punch of botanical goodness, check out the London Collection Body Lotion and Shower Gel Duo.

Birchbox Breakdown

“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.

How it Works

This natural hydrator is loaded with antioxidant-rich botanicals like red tea, soy, ginkgo biloba, grape seed, and milk thistle. Naturally derived glycerin and honey provide instant moisture, with a hydrating boost from brassica plant extract. Always cruelty-free, this formula comes to you free of parabens, phthalates, petrol-derived ingredients, mineral oil, urea, DEA, TEA, and propylene glycol.

How to Use

Smooth onto damp skin after showering, focusing on problem zones like knees and elbows.

Meh...
Sampled

I wasn't very excited about this product from the get-go. It looks, and smells, just like those sample lotions you get in a hotel room. A good word to describe this product is "meh."

My favorite product in my box this month!

This body lotion is fantastic! I threw this little trial size in my purse after I got my box this month, and reached for it several times while braving these subzero Midwest temps. I absolutely LOVED it. Light scent, lightweight and fast-absorbing, my hands feel and look moisturized and a little goes a LONG way. My boyfriend even used it and was happy with the scent and result.

I might not wait to accumulate more points and buy the full-size for $16- a steal for how great this was. Enjoy!

Favorite lotion
SampledPurchased

This is my favorite lotion. It smells really good but not too perfumey. It absorbs really fast too. Great for on the go.

Smells good!
Sampled

I received the sample. The best part of this lotion is the nice light smell, I don't know how well it hydrates, more like a nice hotel lotion than something I would really buy for myself.

Fantastic!
SampledPurchased

I absolutely love this lotion! It smells great and makes my skin so very super soft. It's not greasy or to oily, which is important. The smell is subtle and lingers just enough to know your using a good lotion.

Luxurious!
Sampled

Luxurious, not greasy at all, beautiful packaging, nice, subtle smell = all things I look for in a lotion. I'm not in the market for a new body lotion but this was definitely a nice way to switch up the previous lotion that I was using!

Good not great
Sampled

This is nicer than your average hand lotion but I didn't find anything spectacular about it. Nice scent, non-greasy and it makes my skin feel soft. Overall, a nice product but not sure I'd rush to purchase again.

the smell!!
Sampled

The best part about this lotion is the smell of the product! It's the cleanest, freshest scent without being overpowering or too dull. I immediately bought 2 bottles after my sample size ran out and now keep one in my purse and one at home. I also love that it's lightweight and not greasy at all. Some lotions leave you with a little bit of residue but this does not.

Nice

This is nice. I don't think it is amazing. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it but I would enjoy it as a gift.
