Aveda Rosemary Mint Body Lotion, $52

“I love its minty scent – it’s relaxing and the scent fills up the whole room so I feel like I’m at a spa. It's quite lightweight and absorbed really quickly into my skin. As with all my other body lotions, I used this only at night after a shower. The only downside was that the moisturising effect wasn’t very lasting the day after.” - Jayne Tham

L’Occitane Citrus Verbena Fresh Body Milk, $48

“I love everything about this. The body milk comes in a watery texture which glides on the skin and gets absorbed really quickly. It doesn’t feel heavy and there’s no sticky after-feel. My skin smelt good and felt moisturised throughout the day. And I can’t get enough of its sweet citrus scent.” – Jessica Tham

Sisley Super Soin Solaire Milky Body Mist SPF30/PA+++, $165

“I used to hate using sunscreen on my body – some leave an uncomfortable layer of grease and smell unpleasant. Another reason: I like to have sun-kissed skin. But as I age, I find myself researching more on body sunscreens. To my surprise, this Sisley mist isn't as milky as it dispenses. I love how it is easy to apply and spread on the skin, and I don't smell like sunscreen lotion after.” - Limaran Agustina

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Sorbet, $21.90

“I’ve developed the habit of moisturising my skin daily. While I prefer to use thick and creamy formulas at night, this lightweight body sorbet is a perfect daytime companion. It smells refreshing, hydrates my skin quickly, and doesn’t leave any residue.” - Limaran Agustina

Vaseline Intensive Spray Moisturiser, $13.90
09 Sep 2015

Vaseline Intensive Spray Moisturiser, $13.90

“I've always wanted a fuss-free spray moisturiser – also because I’m lazy to dip my hand into a tub. This one’s lightweight but still does an amazing job. My skin felt hydrated even after I’d spent the entire day in the gym, which is cold and usually leaves my skin dry after a couple of hours. Plus it’s a spray, meaning I can apply it on hard-to-reach areas like behind my back. Now only if this offered some UV protection…” - Jasmine Danker
