You don't always have to spend a lot to get a lot. There are plenty of great beauty products that you can buy at your neighbourhood chemist. Before you go out and buy your fancy body lotion, check out some that are just as good as what you find in department stores.

Dry Skin

When you have dry skin, lotion is especially important. You need a lotion that will not only keep you hydrated, but also will not be too greasy. According to Consumer Research, The Aquaphor Healing Ointment Advanced Therapy Skin Protectant excels in this category. This lotion is especially for people with extremely dry skin. It even helps moisturise the rough and scaly areas of feet, elbows and knees. This lotion contains ingredients that moisturises the skin and reduces inflammation.

Curel Natural Healing Moisturizing Lotion with Honey also received top honours in this category from "Real Simple" magazine.


Consumer Research says that Lubiderm Advanced Therapy Triple Smoothing Body Lotion is the best lotion for people with therapeutic skin needs. This lotion is very hydrating, but is not as heavy as Aquaphor. It leaves the skin smooth as it quickly soaks in. It is not very greasy and is a great exfoliant that will smooth away flaky skin. This in turn helps the lotion soak into the skin, and helps to alleviate the small red bumps sometimes found on people's legs and arms.

Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion also got top honours in this category from "Real Simple" magazine.

Normal Skin

People with normal skin don't want lotion that is too heavy. Eucerin Daily Replenishing Lotion excels in this category. "Real Simple" magazine says the lotion left users with soft skin without heavy residue.

Other Skin Types

Aveeno Fragrance Free Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion is great for sensitive skin. When you need a lotion that's long lasting, try the Curel Continuous Comfort Original Moisturizing Lotion. Burt's Bees Radiance Body Lotion delivers the best illumination and shimmer. According to "Real Simple" magazine, it delivers a subtle glow. To help firm your body, Nivea Body Skin Firming Moisturizer with Q10 delivers high marks. When you need to hydrate and protect yourself from the sun's deadly rays, try the vaseline Daily Skin Shield SPF 15.
