Why stop at just one spa treatment? Try Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Wash too.

Gilchrist & Soames

Birchbox Breakdown

London-based Gilchrist & Soames has been supplying products to top-tier spas for more than three decades, so it’s no surprise this lotion leaves our skin with a fresh-from-the-treatment-table glow. Marine extracts hydrate and pamper skin, and the fresh aqualeaf and citrus scent adds a bit of extra aromatherapy.

How it Works

Extracts of Japanese sea fennel calm irritation and soothe skin. Other sea-based vitamins and minerals absorb into skin to moisturize it and reverse environmental damage. And best of all, the formula contains absolutely no phthalates, mineral oils, parabens, or petrol-derived ingredients.

How to Use

Smooth a generous amount onto skin after showering, or whenever skin feels dry.

Great for your purse
Sampled

Reminds me of hotel lotion you steal from the bathrooms and keep in your purse, car, or desk for emergencies.

Hotel Brand?
Sampled

They had this brand at a hotel I stayed at downtown SF. I did not care for it at the hotel and I did not care for this sample. It did not soak in nicely to my skin and I also did not care for the scent.

Underwhelming
Sampled

I generally prefer thicker and more absorbent body lotions. I felt that the quality of the product was rather underwhelming. The fragrance of the product was not terribly appealing.

Amazing Lotion
Sampled

This is some of the best lotion I've ever used. I'm a nurse so my hands are always dry and this lotion made my hands feel so soft and moisturized! I seriously love this stuff!

Great lotion
Sampled

This lotion smells great and is very light and refreshing. I use this on my hands and my face. My face only tolerates certain lotions and this lotion is lightweight and feels relaxing. It goes on a little oily at first but after absorbing into the skin it doesn't feel greasy or like its clogging my pores.

Spa Therapy Lotion
Sampled

The lotion is good, though, I was not the biggest fan of the smell. I feel like the smell could have been much nicer since it is a body lotion and I do not feel that it is particularly any better than other lotions I own.

Smells is off
Sampled

I love hand creams and although this one felt good, the smell was incredibly off-putting to me. It smelled almost sour. If it were unscented, I'd use it daily.
