If there’s one thing I know to be true, it’s that thick, rich, and (dare I say?) slightly greasy body creams are the best. I know that last descriptor might make people turn away in disgust, but I’ve found the thickest body creams create the most occlusion on the skin. In other words, they lock in moisture better than other, more lightweight lotions. And that, in my experience, is the key to smooth, soft, and plump skin.
In fact, during a conversation with the other Who What Wear beauty editors, I admitted that I basically hoard these body creams, and I use them all year round. In the winter, I use them to smooth my skin and prevent the dreaded tightness and flakiness resulting from freezing temperatures. In the summer, I use them to soothe razor burn and give my skin a healthy-looking glow. So, without further ado, keep scrolling to see my 10 favorite rich body creams; these are the ones I’ve personally vetted (and recommend).
