Winter’s frosty mornings and blistery blasts are upon us and with it brings the onslaught of dry, itchy skin. We might religiously cleanse and slather on the SPF all year round but as we dive into winter many of us begin to fall short of our diligent moisturising routines. The mix of cold weather, long hot showers, and general neglect can often leave your skin looking a little worse for wear, so investing in a heavy-duty moisturiser will go a long way in ensuring your skin is soft and supple. If your skin is in need of a surge of hydration, we’ve rounded up the best body moisturisers to leave your skin looking and feeling it’s best all winter long.
8. KORA Organics Enriched Body Lotion
If you’re someone who struggles with super-dry skin during the colder months, then the Kora Organics Enriched Body Lotion is here to solve all of your skin woes. This lightweight formula contains ingredients like jojoba noni extract and cocoa butter, as well as plant botanicals, which protect the skin from damaging free radicals.
7. L’occitane Sheer Butter Ultra Rich Cream
L’Occitane never fails to disappoint when it comes to their skincare and their Ultra Rich Body Cream is no exception. A whipped and velvety consistency, this body moisturiser is enriched with sheer butter and delivers instant hydration. Specifically formulated for dry skin, it locks in moisture and transforms dry, tight skin within a matter of minutes.
6. Palmers Cocoa Butter Lotion With Vitamin E
Aside from its distinctive aroma, Palmer’s Cococa Butter Lotion is thick and keeps your legs and arms feeling hydrated all day without having to reapply. The non-irritating formula applies like a dream and adds a subtle sheen to the skin, leaving it looking luminous and radiant. It is also infused with Vitamin E extracts which aids in minimising the appearance of stretch marks.
5. Aveeno Skin Relief Daily Moisturiser
A win for those with eczema-prone and sensitive skin, Aveeno’s Skin Relief does exactly as it says and will soothe your irritated skin when the temperature drops and the wind begins its aggressive assault. It contains no added fragrance and provides intense hydration all day, leaving even the driest parts of your body (think knees and elbows) feeling ultra-smooth.
4. Morrocanoil Body Soufflé
If you a lover of Morroccanoil hair treatments, then this soufflé will be your skins best friend.

We know, we know. The La Mer Body Crème may be one of the most luxurious (and not to mention expensive) body moisturises on the market, but it sure does live up to its name. The insanely rich texture immediately saturates thirsty, itchy skin and provides an extra boost of hydration.
