Body Mois­tur­izer

Un­der $20 Carolle Bedard of Pier­re­fonds, Que., loved how this man­darin-scented lo­tion worked OT on her skin thanks to hy­drat­ing shea but­ter and an­tiox­i­dant-rich sea-buck­thorn oil. “This cream is per­fect. My skin stayed hy­drated for at least 24 hours.” Lo­tus Aroma Man­darin Vel­vet Body Lo­tion ($18) Over $20 Made with ex­fo­li­at­ing oats and omega-fatty-acid-rich kukui oil, this milk is as nour­ish­ing as a cream, but it ab­sorbs faster than it takes you to down your first Amer­i­cano of the day. Clar­ins Mois­ture-Rich Body Lo­tion ($44)


Read­ers tested this prod at the gym, dur­ing yoga and while run­ning af­ter the kids—all to rave re­views. “It didn’t leave any white marks, the scent is awe­some and I didn’t need to reap­ply it,” said Lisa Mc­Graw of Con­cep­tion Bay South, NL. Nivea In­vis­i­ble for Black & White Stick ($4). For de­tails, see Shop­ping Guide.

Body Scrub

Kayt­lyn MacKen­zie of Cal­gary dubbed this ex­fo­liant from the Parisian beauty brand “the body-scrub holy grail.” The sugar ex­fo­li­ates skin, and beeswax locks in hy­dra­tion. Dans un Jardin Mirabella Sugar Scrub ($19.95)

Body Wa s h

Olay re­jigged the for­mula of this body wash to be gen­tler on skin, but read­ers also fell for its sum­mery scent. Olay Fresh Out­last Cool­ing White Straw­berry and Mint Body Wash ($5.49). Bio­derma’s soap-free cleanser makes scaly win­ter skin ob­so­lete. In­trepid read­ers also used it as a shav­ing cream and bub­ble bath. Bio­derma Ato­derm Shower Gel ($19.95)

Hand cream

This French brand is a well-dec­o­rated BGP veteran. This time, you gave the thumbs-up to its anti-ag­ing hand cream, made with skin­pro­tect­ing polyphe­nols. Cau­dalie Hand and Nail Cream ($20)
