These Are The Lightweight Lotions To Lather On For Supple Skin

Pamper your skin with these lightweight lotions that will have your skin feeling refreshed and subtly moisturised in our hot, humid weather.

While most of us are more than willing to shell out money for that anti-ageing face moisturiser or serum, we aren’t so kind to the skin on the rest of our body. But pampering and taking care of your dry elbows and knees do not have to burn a hole in your pocket. Here are our best picks for body lotions that won’t cost you a bomb. Plus, they are lightweight yet hydrating, so they don’t leave an uncomfortable film on skin too.
