6 Decadent Body Moisturizers for Fall

Switching up your facial skincare routine is definitely important for fall, but don’t forget about stocking your body-care arsenal for the season as well. As far as body lotion goes, it’s time to ditch the lightweight formula you used all summer in favor of a rich, heavy-duty cream. These thick, decadent moisturizers help combat skin dullness, flaking and dryness that can come with the transition to colder weather. Try one of our editors’ six favorites, ahead.

Kiehl’s Creme de Corps

If you’re on the hunt for a moisturizer that’s light on the skin but rich in hydration, you just found it. This soy milk and honey-whipped body butter, also formulated with shea and jojoba butters, instantly penetrates skin to help deliver deep moisture and a softened texture.

Carol’s Daughter Almond Cookie Frappé Body Lotion

For a hydrating option with an addicting scent, Almond Cookie Frappé is the one for you. This formula is made with almond oil and glycerin to help revitalize and soften dry, flaking skin.

La Roche-Posay Lipikar Body Lotion for Normal to Dry Skin

Lipikar Body Lotion is a cult-favorite among drugstore skin-care lovers, thanks to it’s lightweight, non-greasy and non-sticky finish. It contains shea butter, niacinamide and the brand’s proprietary prebiotic thermal water to help  lock in all-day hydration.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

A nod to all things Brazilian beauty (think: soft skin and hypnotic scents), Bum Bum Cream is a warm and spicy body moisturizer that you’ll want to apply over and over again. It smells like salted caramel, pistachio and vanilla, and it contains cupuaçu butter and açai for silky, supple skin.


Nécessaire The Body Lotion

This nourishing body lotion contains vitamins C, E, omega-6 and omega-9 plus niacinamide for a vitamin-packed application. It works to soften, moisturize and strengthen the skin’s barrier, not to mention it’s fragrance-free, making it a great option for sensitive skin.


Summer Fridays Summer Skin Nourishing Body Lotion

For a crowd-pleasing moisturizer that gives your skin a summery-glow all year around, opt for this formula. It has cocoa butter, shea butter and a slew of natural oils to hydrate the skin. It also contains ceramides, a must-have ingredient for retaining moisture.
