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."

Very light

Great moisturizer that is light but works great. No irritation, non-greasy feel. Great for body lotion, daily use. Would recommend for future use.

Really great!

Non-greasy and the smell isn't overpowering or too much. It feels great and leaves skin so smooth. Definitely highly recommended!

Smells good

Smells good and not greasy. Would buy again if lower price. Would not recommend for face. And needs more long term life.

I used this and it smells good, works good, but not worth spending the extra money on.

Light

This lotion is incredibly light weight and lightly scented. On my first impression, I agreed with other reviewers that the scent reminded me of hotel body lotions but after a few weeks of use, I really like the scent because it doesn't smell cheap and is great as a scent on its own or if you choose to layer on top of it, the scents aren't muddled together because it's so light. The winning aspect of it for me though is the fact that it keeps me moisturized without a heavy residual feeling. I knocked off one star only because it might not be my go-to scent and it did take me a while to appreciate its discerning and delicate scent.

Great smell but not the best moisturizer
Sampled

I love this lotion because it doesn't make your skin to greasy, but it doesn't always moisturize as well as it should with the amount that you have to apply. The smell is amazing though! It reminds me of spring and honey suckle!

I did not care for this product. It was too "watery" . Didn't feel smooth once applied and I wasn't very fond of the smell either. I don't recommend this lotion.
