We love a lot of things about fall. But one thing we’re not so keen on? The itchy, flaky dry skin that often accompanies the inevitable temperature drop. As such, we’ve been religious about applying our body lotion morning and night, and it’s paying off. Here are four of the best body lotions that banish dry patches for good, all available on Amazon.

Editors’ Pick: Everyone Lotion, Lavender And Aloe (pack Of 2)

The Facts:

  • Made with pure essential oils
  • Formulated with skin-loving plant extracts
  • Cruelty-free

The coconut oil, aloe vera and vitamin E in this formula work to leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated. It’s made with pure essential oils (in this case, lavender), which provide soothing aromatherapy while you moisturize. One PureWow editor says, “I’m terrible at remembering to moisturize, but this body lotion makes me actually want to. It feels light and soothing, but is also super hydrating. Plus, I love the calming lavender scent, especially when I use it right before bed.”

Best Value: Nivea Essentially Enriched Body Lotion

The Facts:

  • Designed specifically for dry skin
  • Reduces roughness after just one application
  • Infused with almond oil

Nivea is one of the most well-known skin-care brands for a reason—it creates high-performing products at a very affordable price point. And this body lotion is no different. Infused with Nivea’s signature Deep Moisture Serum and almond oil, this formula is proven to keep you moisturized for up to 48 hours. Constant reapplication? We don’t know her.

Splurge-worthy: La Mer The Body Creme

The Facts:

  • Long-lasting hydration
  • Restores skin to a healthy, supple and bouncy state
  • Blue Algae Lift Ferment creates firmness and tone

With this body cream, moisturizing is just the beginning. In addition to leaving your skin ultra-hydrated (the brand boasts that it works so well, you probably won’t need to use it every day) this lotion’s patented complexes made with blue algae and shea butter give the skin a youthful, radiant appearance. It also creates a firmer, more toned look and feel. Consider us sold.

lotion runner up

Runner Up: Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion

The Facts:

  • Fragrance-free
  • Clinically proven to improve skin health in just one day
  • Moisturizes for a full 24 hours

Some of us are not-so-blessed with hyper-sensitive skin, which can make finding a good moisturizer extra difficult. In addition to working well, it also has to be gentle enough that it won’t cause irritation. Enter: Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion. It’s made with simple ingredients like soothing oats, and it’s fragrance-free, so it’s ultra-gentle.
