The best lotions don’t have to cost an arm and a leg; in fact, I’ve found that these 5 body lotions under $10 work just as well, if not better, than more expensive brands. If you’re tired of spending a fortune on body lotion, why not give one of these budget-friendly picks a try?
1. Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Butter Extra Rich Cream
This intensive cream hydrates dry skin with a potent combination of cocoa butter, petroleum jelly and Vitamin E. Even the most dry skin will benefit from this rich cream. It soaks in instantly and leaves behind a healthy glow, and smells great to boot! I like to smooth it on immediately after a shower for soft, supple skin that lasts all day.
2. St. Ives Advanced Body Moisturizer, Oatmeal & Shea Butter
I adore St. Ives; I’ve been using their products off and on since my childhood, and they remain a tried-and-true brand to this day. Their Oatmeal & Shea Butter body lotion is not only budget-friendly, but exceptionally moisturizing as well. Oatmeal helps soothe dry, itchy skin while the shea butter penetrates deeply for hydrated skin that lasts all day. Plus, it’s formulated with 100% natural moisturizers and is non-irritating!
3. Lubriderm Advanced Therapy Lotion
Developed by dermatologists, Lubriderm Advanced Therapy Lotion is a non-greasy body lotion formulated with Vitamins E & B5, as well as skin essential lipids, works to restore a healthy balance to dry, dull skin. This lotion has been clinically proven to hydrate dry skin for 24 hours, and within one week even extra-dry skin is healthy and more resilient.
4. Soap & Glory The Righteous Body Butter
Packed with a powerful combination of aloe vera and shea butter, this hydrating body butter was specifically formulated for extra dry skin. Despite its very thick consistency, fans say it goes on smoothly and isn’t greasy at all. Plus, it smells amazing!
5. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Intensive Moisture Wrap Body Lotion
Dry, uncomfortable skin will be banished instantly with this intensive lotion from Neutrogena. With a unique glycerin-rich complex, this body treatment wraps skin in hydration without feeling heavy or greasy like other lotions can.
