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.

Smells nice
Sampled

The lotion smells nice, feels ok, but not very moisturizing. I like it, but it's not good for the price they're asking to purchase the product.

Liked the lotion
Sampled

I liked this body lotion. It went on smoothly and didn't feel greasy. I also liked the smell. I always prefer a little thicker lotion but this will be great for summer.

The fennel is so creative and smells great! Apparently my skin relaly likes Gilchrist and Soames because every sample from this brand has had a quick effect on my dry skin.

I Feel In Love Again!
Sampled

My husband and I went on our first honeymoon, after 18 years of marriage. And wouldn't you know, that our spa bathroom had Gilchrist & Soames Spa bath products.

Let's just say, I was very giddy after seeing this in my box! i'll definitely be ordering a full size! ; )

Nice smell! A little thin
Sampled

It smells amazing! It's very "beach" and natural, however, the primary hesitation I have is with the viscosity of the lotion. Quite thin, while I like mine thicker is all ^_^

as a new mom
Sampled

As a new mom I have to say the lotions i'd normally buy from Victoria secret and bath and body works, have made my legs break out into a rash if I use it within 12 hours of me shaving my legs. However, this is comfortable enough for everyday especially after the shower. Definitely wouldn't buying this!!!

Great Lotion
Sampled

This lotion is wonderful. My hands get extremely dry in the winter due to colder weather and lots of hand-washing, this lotion made them soft again! The only reason I didn't rate a 5 is because I wasn't too fond of the smell.
