The most reviewed body creams of 2013

Friday, 6 December 2013

The most reviewed body moisturisers of 2013We spend a lot of time moisturising the skin on our faces, but sometimes we neglect the rest of our bodies. All year round, it’s vitally important that we moisturise at least once a day, particularly after shaving. Here, the body moisturisers that received the most reviews from our Beauty Addicts in 2013.

1. Bio-Oil Body Oil
From scars to stretch marks and uneven skin tone, this body oil will help improve the appearance of these nasty marks on your body. It is great to use for ageing as well as dehydrated skin.

What you said:
“My favourite way to apply this cult status oil is straight after a bath when my skin is a little moist. The result is silky and flawless skin!”

2. Vaseline Total Moisture Lotion
A breakthrough in moisturising technology, delivering superior moisture across all three of the skin’s surface layers, Vaseline’s patented Stratys-3TM complex ensures that the new lotions infuse and suspend moisture at the skin’s top, core and deep down surface layers for unprecedented hydration and an unmatched silky feel.

What you said:
“This Vaseline Total Moisture range has helped me enjoy hydrated skin throughout these winter months. The well-produced products lasted me for over two months and I will be buying another bottle soon.”

3. Nivea Crème
Nivea’s legendary Crème can be used as a day or as a night cream, helping to maintain the skin’s own protective barrier. Apart from helping to combat moisture loss, it works on improving smoothness, suppleness and guarding skin against weather extremes.

What you said:
“I love the feeling of it on, the fresh smell and easy application of the crème. One of my all time favourite products.”

4. Nivea Naturally Even Body Lotion
Enriched with Eventone pure active, vitamin E and double UV filters, Nivea Naturally Even Lotion reduces irregular pigmentation, restores skin’s natural even tone and radiance and protects against dark marks and light-induced premature ageing.

What you said:
“When I initially tried it I thought it would be oily and greasy, but it absorbed quickly and left my skin feeling great.”

5. Johnson and Johnson African Nurture Body Lotion
Johnson’s African Nurture Body Lotion gently restores the natural beauty of the skin, leaving it soft, glowing and radiantly healthy.

What you said:
“I tried it and simply loved it. It doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky, which I hate. It is a really good lotion.”

    I use Nivea Body Firming Lotion. It leaves my skin looking as well as feeling super smooth. It also smells fantastic but at the same time doesn’t overpower whatever perfume I’m wearing. I’ve also tried the Johnson and Johnson African Nurture body lotion. If you’re impatient and want something that absorbs fast, go with that one.

    Over the years I experiment with lots of body lotions as let’s face, we do get bored using the same one over and over. But I always go back to Nivea Body Lotions in the middle of summer as consistently they offer the most hydration on my skin for the longest period of time. Nivea never disappoints.

    The Vaseline and Nivea are just amazing and leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth. You can instantly feel and see a difference on your body after applying a lotion.
