How to Choose the Best Body Moisturizer for Your Skin

PSA: Using a body moisturizer is non negotiable. But does the perfect body moisturizer even exist? And how do you choose the best one for you? Much like the skincare you use on your face, body moisturizers come in a variety of formulations meant to target different concerns, like dryness, loss of elasticity, firmness and other signs of aging. Ahead, our beloved body-care moisturizers for every skin type, mood and need.

The Glowiest

Undaria Algae Body Oil

We dare you not to feel like a glowy goddess putting this on. Our best-selling body oil combines seven botanical oils, including acai and sunflower, with nutrient-rich Undaria seaweed for silky-soft and impossibly glowing skin. Not to mention that this gorgeous golden elixir is the color of sunshine and smells like a citrusy vacation. Even the most devoted of body cream lovers will fall for our non greasy, fast-absorbing oil. We promise it passes the get-dressed test with no waiting period. So you can slip right into your skinny jeans or tuck yourself into your crisp white sheets right after applying.

The Age-Defier

Undaria Algae Body Butter

That rare person who doesn’t have at least some dry patches, crepey parts and loss of elasticity on their body can ignore the following, but for everyone else, there’s our new age-defying body butter. Ultra-rich and utterly moisturizing, this beautifully dense cream transforms dry, crepey skin to soft, smooth and supple. Fast absorbing? Check. Clinically proven to hydrate for 72 hours? Check. High-performance, skincare-level ingredients, like firming DPHP, seaweed, ceramides and whipped shea butter? You bet! Factor in the buttery-rich texture and cheerful grapefruit and mandarin scent and you’ve got yourself a real winner.

The Ultra-Rich

Anti-Aging Body Balm

If your skin is extra dry, consider our intensely moisturizing lotion-and-oil hybrid the magic fix. This silky, youth-restoring elixir sinks right in, nourishing thirsty skin, whether it’s 20 degrees or 85, leaving only super-supple, radiant skin behind. Coconut oil, passion fruit, Alaria esculenta algae, omega fatty acids, minerals and antioxidants are all packed into one softening and smoothing (and heavenly) liquid balm. Inhale a bit of the addictive, floral jasmine-and-geranium scent and you’ll wonder just how you ever lived without it.

The Lightweight

Ocean Lotion

If ultra-rich body moisturizers leave you feeling sticky and weighed down, you don’t have to resign yourself to dry, flakey skin. Our super-moisturizing-but-light-as-air-miracle is just the ticket for hydrated, nourished skin sans heaviness. This silky concoction, loaded with kukui seed oil, marine algae, shea butter and macadamia oil glides effortlessly across skin, locking in hydration and drying down instantly, leaving nothing behind but velvety-soft skin.This is also a solid choice if you’re looking for a fragrance-free body moisturizer that won’t clash with your perfume. Plus the lovely tide pool-blue color itself is just so pretty, like a summer day at the beach (when you’re likely to use this most.)
