I have a confession to make – I never used to be a daily body moisturiser. I know. Shocking right? It all seemed like too much faff but as the birthdays passed and my skin started to feel a tad more dry, I realised that it was necessary to bypass my lazy instincts and start incorporating lotions and body butters on a daily basis. What’s great about this routine is that you are suddenly opened up to the world of the body lotion aisles in Boots and Superdrug. A whole new bevy of possibilities with scents, formulations and new releases sitting ready for you to pick up and try out.
One of those new releases comes from shower gel powerhouse Original Source. Known for their intensely fragranced natural products, including super awakening zesty lime and powerful mint, you can now quench thirsty skin with their range of body lotions and butters. Kicking things off with a lotion I went for the Original Source Skin Quench Body Lotion Watermelon & Jojoba. Boy oh boy does this smell good! The watermelon really breaks through to not only leave your skin feels soft and supple, it also smells great throughout the day.
Looking to amp up the moisture levels by one more notch I added the Original Source Body Butter Lime & Coconut and Original Source Body Butter Vanilla & Almond to the collection. Super thick in consistency these sink into the skin to really boost those hydration levels. Vanilla & Almond is my weekend pick for a richer fragrance whereas lime & coconut is a refreshing choice to perk up those dark early mornings. Packed with natural oils and 100% natural fragrance these have quickly become my go to body butters of choice.
