"I’ve used Palmers Cocoa Butter ever since I was a kid and even though I now have all sorts of fancy lotions at my disposal (shout out to Byredo!) I’ll always come back to this, my one true love. It’s the only lotion I’ve used that really gets rid of the ash, plus it smells amazing but not overwhelming." – Nikki Ogunnaike, Style Director

2 Daily Moisturizing Lotion CeraVe amazon.com $13.99 $10.49 (25% off) SHOP NOW

"A moisturizer so good I use it on my face, too—at the suggestion of my derm, okay?" – Jessica Roy, Deputy Editor

3 The Body Cream Nécessaire violetgrey.com $25.00 SHOP NOW

"I and every other beauty editor I know is obsessed with this body lotion. It is scent-free—so it doesn't mix up unfavorably with your favorite perfume—and absorbs right away so you don't feel lubed up and greasy. Combined with the brand's luscious body wash, my skin feels baby-smooth all day long." – Kristina Rodulfo, Senior Beauty Editor

4 Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion Aveeno target.com $7.19 SHOP NOW

"Shout out Jennifer Aniston! In my search for baby soft skin, I've tried many a body lotion and Aveeno is the affordable G.O.A.T. It leaves my skin soft and hydrated, even hours after application, and comes at a friendly drug store price. Plus, it's unscented, which means no flowery fluffiness." – Ariana Yaptangco, Social Media Editor

5 Body Jelly Fornillo stories.com $17.00 SHOP NOW

"Not going to lie — I love free things. A majority of my beauty cabinet is loaded with freebies, and few join the ranks of products I subscribe to, and will actually buy, IRL. & Other Stories’ Fornillo Body Jelly has joined those ranks. It’s named after a beach along the Amalfi coast—because LUXURY—and smells so irresistible: musky, woodsy, fruity, and fresh, without being overwhelmingly so in any category. I’m a girl who’s all about slathering on creams, potions, and oils, and I appreciate that although layered under my favorite body oil, the scent still pushes through. Smells RICH!" – Angel Lenise, Lead Video Producer

6 SA Body Cream for Rough and Bumpy Skin CeraVe amazon.com $17.82 SHOP NOW

"I don't trust a body lotion that doesn't come from a sterile, dermatologist-recommended tub. I want that non-scented salve whose formula hasn't changed in decades and was probably used by my ancestors. CeraVe is everything and more, and their SA Cream saved my skin. As someone with mild eczema and keratosis pilaris (lovingly nicknamed 'chicken skin'), I get lil bumps all over my arms that need to be sloughed off regularly. Cerave's cream has salicylic acid in so it does the exfoliating for you, sans loofa. You'll feel like a smooth lil baby, which I'm a big fan of." – Justine Carreon, Market Editor

7 Daily Moisture Hydrating Body and Hand Lotion with Vitamin B5, Non-Greasy, 24 fl. oz Lubriderm amazon.com $9.99 $7.63 (24% off) SHOP NOW

"Don't let the bottle deceive you! While this lotion doesn't scream 'Instagram aesthetic,' it's inexpensive, very gentle on your skin, and most importantly, it gets the job done. It's my go-to lotion for every day use, and it's easy to find in almost any drugstore." — Madison Feller, Staff Wtiter

8 The Ritual of Ayurveda Body Cream Rituals ulta.com $33.00 SHOP NOW

"If a body cream or lotion has an amazing scent, I'm pretty much sold. But for someone with extremely sensitive skin, this body cream is a game changer! It's so rich in texture so a little goes a long way and combines Indian Rose and Himalaya Honey so you walk around smelling like a million bucks." – Nerisha Penrose, Assistant Editor
