10 Luxe Body Lotions To Love This Summer

By Alison McGill

I would argue summer is a more intense season than winter for your skin. Sun, extreme heat and pool plunges can leave your skin feeling parched so it’s essential to replenish those all-important hydration levels with a nourishing body lotion to maintain a beautiful, warm-weather glow.

The best body lotions to use this season are ones that are extremely lightweight, but still pack a concentrated moisture punch. Just as you need a wardrobe of facial cleansers, a curated collection of body lotions is also something to invest in. You can switch up your formula depending on your mood. One day you might prefer scent-free, while the next you want one infused with a subtle aroma—I personally love fragranced body lotions for summer because I wear them as a standalone, you don’t need to layer fragrance on top.

Here are 10 summer body lotions—some new, some classic fan favourites—to stock for the summer season.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Body Cream
