When it comes to winter body care, only the best will do. Our skin dislikes the cold (and who can blame it!?) but one way to appease it is with a body care routine that incorporates good quality products. Treat your skin to luxury body moisturisers this season because if this year has taught us anything, it's to take pleasure in the simple things. Read on for the three gems that we personally use and recommend.
This may be the priciest body moisturiser of the lot, but it truly is a delight. As luxury body moisturisers go, it ticks a lot of boxes; a rich texture that is easily absorbed, it's softening and incredibly hydrating. It's also made with only the best, clean ingredients; Silky macadamia nut oil, marigold bloom oil, and antioxidant extract Vinanza Grape, to name a few.
Antipodes is a beauty brand with ethics; devoted to repurposing, reusing, and recycling. They use boxes that can be recycled and are made from biodegradable materials. The cardboard used in the boxes comes from sustainable forests and even the label printing is done with “eco” ink from vegetables.
And if that wasn't enough, Delight hand and body cream is certified vegan by the UK Vegetarian Society.
Delight has a beautifully delicate vintage gardenia scent which makes it a strong contender for any, and every occasion wear. Use it straight out of the shower in the morning and just before bed as a body cream. You can even pop it in your bag to use as hand cream throughout the day. Trust us, this is a hand and body cream you just won't want to stop applying.

Multi-use products are great luxury buys as they provide just a little more value than your average lotion, which is why we're recommending another. The beauty of the Pixi Milky Hydrating Lotion is that it is designed for both the face and body. If you're sceptical about a lotion that can do both, don't be.
We've really put this to the test. Somehow they've perfected a texture that isn't too heavy on the face and isn't too light on the body. Pixi, we salute you.
Pixi claims that regular application of the Hydrating Milky Lotion will not only instantly hydrate the skin, but will also improve long-term moisture. This is a great luxury body moisturiser, and the rest of the Hydrating Milky skincare collection measures up too.

Lastly, and most luxuriously, we have Nuxe's Reve de Miel Melting Honey Body Oil Balm. This is our only non-multi-purpose pick, but it makes up for it in other ways. A rich body butter designed to replenish dry and sensitive skin, this is no less than a winter skincare must-have.
The butter cream texture melts into a beautifully light and non-greasy oil which leaves the skin with a shine that J.Lo would envy. Miraculously, despite this, it quickly absorbs without leaving even a trace of sticky and uncomfortable residue on the skin. Oh and the best part? It leaves you smelling as sweet as vanilla honey, literally.
