Keeping your skin hydrated isn't just an aesthetic thing—although smooth, glowing skin all over isn't a bad trade-off. You need a good body moisturizer to support your skin barrier and soothe inflammation. Not to mention, finding a good natural moisturizer is a dreamy sensorial experience. However, it's also a personal one too: Some may prefer a thin, spreadable option with good slip; others like a dense cream that's practically thick as butter.

No matter what you're looking for, we found the best of the best. 

Costa Brazil Creme Para O Corpo

Let this luxe cream sink into skin: You'll be hooked instantly. The botanicals are sourced and inspired by the company's home country, Brazil—and they're nothing short of inspired. There's the hydrating tucuma seed oil, the brightening murumuru butter, and smoothing cacay oil.

Burt's Bees Sensitive Hand & Body Lotion

Those with inflammatory skin conditions like eczema know how important a good lotion is. However, finding one that's sensitive-skin-safe may be a challenge (fragrances and certain natural botanicals can be irritating to those with eczema). This aloe vera option is approved by the National Eczema Association.

It contains a natural AHA blend to ever-so-gently buff the skin. This is ideal for anyone who may experience body acne, as it will help slough off excess dead skin cells.

We love eucalyptus around here as it can be equal parts calming and invigorating. That's how we would describe this body butter, too. Slather on the shea, cocoa butter, and mango butter blend day or night to lift your mood or Zen you out.
