Basic body lotion just won't cut it if you have dry, thirsty skin. These 16 lotions, butters, and creams are souped-up formulas with the extra-nourishing ingredients your skin craves. When used regularly (ideally right after you get out of the shower to seal in moisture), you’ll be left with baby-soft skin in no time—even in the dead of winter.
1 Kiehl's Since 1851 Crème de Corps
The buttery texture and super-rich formula (it’s packed with squalane, avocado oil, cocoa butter, and more) have made this body cream a best-seller.
2 The Body Lotion
This fragrance-free lotion has gained cult status thanks to its lightweight, hydrating formula and unisex appeal.
3 Advanced Therapy Moisturizing Lotion
If you have ultra-dry skin, keeping a big bottle of this no-frills, non-greasy lotion on your nightstand is never a bad decision.
4 Skin Food Original Ultra-Rich Moisturizer
From rough elbows to cracked cuticles, there’s nothing better. Keep a tube in every bag, and never look back.
5 Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion
Oats help protect and soothe skin, while the unscented formula is great for those who are sensitive to fragrance.
6 Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter
The brand’s signature argan oil is the star of this whipped body butter, which also contains shea butter and avocado oil.
7 Shea Butter Rich Body Lotion
Blended with 15 percent shea butter, this lotion helps block out dryness for up to 48 hours.
8 Naked Body Butter
The body butter—the same one used in Bliss spas—comes in multiple scents, but we’re partial to the “Naked” variety, which lets the formula—packed with shea butter and coconut oil—shine.
9 Jergens Hydrating Coconut Lotion
Calling all coconut lovers: Containing both coconut oil and coconut water, this moisturizing formula is like a tropical getaway in a bottle.

You’ll love the citrus-y smell and fluffy texture; your skin will love the blend of olive, apricot, and grapeseed oils.
11 Nivea Crème
This classic body cream is so rich and thick, it can even be used as a lip balm.

The combination of cocoa butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E zaps flakes instantly. We love it for exceptionally dry spots, like elbows.

The brand's best-selling, hyaluronic-acid-packed Hydro Boost technology is now in a fast-absorbing body balm.
