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."

Too chemically
Sampled

The pros are that it is light and not greasy, and though the smell is strong at first, it fades fairly quickly. The cons are - some of the ingredients are bad for skin and bad for the environment...dimethicone being a big example here.

Nice scent, not very strong
Sampled

This lotion has a nice light scent and it goes on very nicely. There is no residue left after you put it on which is nice, but the lotion isn't super effective on my dry winter skin. Its a good light lotion but not good for anything heavy duty.

Alright
Sampled

I prefer a thicker body lotion on my excessively dry skin in the even drier Colorado climate. This lotion smells nice, it's just not what I look for in a moisturizer.
