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.

Loved this lux lotion

I use this on my hands and they feel amazing. When I used it after shaving my legs it really made them smooth. I am ordering this product for myself today as a birthday gift. It is my favorite product on this site so far.

smells nice but does not absorb well

the smell of this lotion is very nice but it does not absorb well so it feels like it is just sitting on top of my skin

smells like a spa

I really liked this item, it was lightweight yet very moisturizing and made my skin super soft. It was perfect for traveling and smelled great. I loved using it right out of the shower.

Just OK

This lotion absorbs quickly, but it doesn't feel like my hands are moisturized for very long after applying. It has a strong, almost salty smell that lingers for a long time.

Smelled nice, but didn't do anything
Sampled

I really wanted to love this lotion, but it didn't. It smelled wonderfully, yet it really didn't have much of an effect on my skin. My hands tend to be dry and this lotion absorbed quickly, yet didn't actually moisturize. Bummer.

Nice

Love this body lotion. The smell is perfect - fresh but not overwhelming. Moisturizes nicely but noticeably not greasy. Will be ordering full size!

Nothing special
Sampled

This reminded me of hotel bathroom lotion; no noticeable scent and a little more watery than I like my lotion. It'll be nice to have for travel, but not something I will be using on a daily basis.
