Pharmacy milk, the first series of body care products from Dr. Jart + and bestsellers from Dove and Clarins - products for every taste and wallet from the editors of BeautyHack!
Body milk Melograno, Santa Maria Novella
Tested by BeautyHack Editor-in-Chief Karina Andreeva
My principle of choosing body products is the same - that it will be absorbed faster, moisturize dry skin well and will not leave greasy marks on clothes. I got out of the shower, smeared myself, "jumped" into clothes and ran on business. I treat the pharmaceutical cosmetics of the Florentine brand with history and with great respect.
Santa Maria Novella is a pharmacy that appeared in Florence 400 years ago. Today it is a whole perfumery and pharmaceutical house, which carefully preserves ancient traditions and recipes. For me, the brand's "calling card" is a divine aroma associated with cleanliness and comfort. You can't confuse him with anything!
I tasted the milk in a beautiful frosted glass bottle one cold autumn morning before the flight: I got out of the shower and in a hurry began to test it. In texture, the product really resembles milk, but thicker (almost like kefir 1% fat). Do not be greedy and boldly apply the product: it is absorbed in a couple of minutes, despite the "oily" composition (the formula contains cocoa and avocado oils, beeswax, vitamin E, orange blossom and rose water).
Milk moisturizes, tones and softens the skin. Massage over the entire body and enjoy the warm scent: keep in mind that it is rich and persistent, and can easily "overpower" the scent of perfume. So it was with me: after 12 hours of flight, I felt the gentle sillage of Melograno.
Price: 6 240 rubles.
Nourishing body cream "Pistachio", Skinfood
Tested by BeautyHack SMM Manager Alexandra Grishina
Recently, I got on to the true one and bought a gym membership for 25 months. And as a bonus, I collected a new cosmetic bag with a good body cream. I share it with you!
I love the nutty flavor - whether it's syrup in coffee, a glass of almond milk in the morning, or Skinfood's body cream. The product has a dense texture. I don't particularly like these: they are hard to absorb, leave streaks on clothes. But all this is not about "Pistachio": it is applied and melts like butter; instantly disappears from the skin and smells divinely delicious. Even my sports "teammates" asked what kind of cream it was. The smell is scent, but the composition of the product is excellent: vitamins, minerals, fiber, shea butter, which creates a barrier in the form of a light film and saves from flaking.
And 200 ml of cream is enough for a couple of months of active daily use. I advise you to apply the cream immediately after a shower on a damp (but not completely wet) body for better absorption and hydration.
Price: 1 200 rub.
Body milk My Orchard Peach Body Essence, Frudia
Tested by BeautyHack editor Julia Kozoliy
Frudia - lovely as always! Honestly, tasty, juicy and strictly to the point - from packaging design to composition. What else to expect from a brand, the concept of which has been pored over in South Korea for 30 years, and then issued: the basis of all funds was not water (although it is still there), but cold-pressed fruit extracts. I found six herbal extracts and three "working" oils in the milk. On the skin, such a mix behaves perfectly: it is quickly absorbed, does not leave stickiness, it smells like a juicy peach, but not sugary-sweet, but fresh in holiday fashion!
Price: 709 rub.
Nourishing body care Caudalie
Tested by BeautyHack Editor Natalia Kapitsa
For several years, the Caudalie brand has had a devoted fan in my face, who is ready to try all the new products and at the same time squeal with delight. Nourishing body care - the remedy that caused tachycardia from the first use. Does not leave a greasy film, spreads easily and smells like Provence. Thick milk contains nutritious components that are especially relevant in cold weather: grape seed oil, ginkgo biloba extract, glycerin. The ingredients start working immediately, bringing dehydrated skin back to life - it becomes as smooth as Italian silk. The care has a cumulative effect. After a week of use, the skin flakes less and becomes more elastic. Another plus for Caudalie: the product removes redness and soothes - you can put it in your suitcase if suddenly someone is going to the sea (I envy!).
Price: 1 500 rub.
Saturated body cream Ceramidin Body Butter, Dr. Jart +
Tested by BeautyHack Senior Editor Anastasia Speranskaya
The entire BeautyHack editorial team is in love with products from the Korean brand Dr. Jart +. Their shaker masks and BB concealers (you can read about them here) have long established themselves as treatments that instantly transform the skin.
Now Dr. Jart + takes care of the body - in the beginning of autumn, the brand launched the first line with products based on ceramides. These components, which form the lipid barrier on the skin, are especially needed during the cold season. There is no doubt that a sunny yellow-white collection of body oils, lotion, scrub, hand cream and shower gel will save you from dryness and improve skin elasticity.
I have already completely switched to Ceramidin Body Wash, and now I got acquainted with the “butter” (it is also a rich body cream). I must admit, I have a strained relationship with such products - it is much easier to apply liquid oil to damp skin after a shower, quickly blot it with a towel and run to get dressed. If you also don't like waiting for the cream to be absorbed, you will love Dr. Jart + - it can be applied to damp skin like oil. And for those who like more nutritious, but fatter, I advise you to use the product on dry skin, scooping generously from the jar. The cream melts, instantly relieving discomfort and dryness, and leaves a pleasant trail of herbs and lemon.
The remedy can also be used locally: peeling on the elbows and knees immediately disappeared, and the skin remains protected throughout the day - no frost is terrible.
Price: 2 755 rub.
Body cream with a melting texture Indoceane Silky Smooth Cream, Thalgo
Tested by BeautyHack editorial assistant Arina Zarudko
If silk could be wrapped in a tube, it would be Thalgo's Indoceane Cream. Founded in 1964, the cosmetics brand continues to explore healthy treasures from the depths of the ocean to this day. Thalgo laboratory develops products based on micronized algae and marine collagen, and is also famous for anti-cellulite treatments (the best ones were written here).
The Indoceane series is intended for home spa lovers - products help to relax and enjoy pleasant textures and inviting aromas. Thalgo silk cream has the most delicate texture and sweet aroma with notes of iris and jasmine. Active ingredients: shea butter and rice germ, which are responsible for hydration; relaxing qi-marine extract (formulated by Thalgo) and lotus flower extract to soothe the skin.
I apply the cream after a hot bath with massage movements. Absorbs quickly and leaves a light floral flair.
Price: 3 430 rub.
Body lotion "Tempting strawberry and white chocolate", Avon
Tested by BeautyHack editorial assistant Arina Zarudko
Means from the category of "light express care" - the texture is rich, but not greasy, does not leave an unpleasant sticky layer on the skin. I liked the practical format of the product: it is convenient to take on trips, and there is a place for it in an ordinary bag.
I always alternate heavy butters and creams with something lighter - Avon is just for this purpose! The lotion is suitable for those who are for quick and effective hydration and do not mind the sweet berry scent on the skin. The volume will last for a long time, so feel free to apply “strawberry yogurt” without saving.
Price: 140 rub.
Deep moisturizing body cream Moisturizing Body Cream Hydra 24, Lundenilona
Tested by BeautyHack special correspondent Maria Alferova
With the onset of cold weather, my skin dries up - I can't do without a quality body product with the correct composition (light lotions with a tropical scent do not work).
The history of the local Russian brand Lundenilona sounds like a fairy tale, in which, nevertheless, one wants to believe! The grandfather of the founder Ilona Lunden began to work on the compositions of the funds. Herbalist and naturalist, he squeezed the maximum benefit from natural ingredients and combined them in the most cunning ways. Ilona herself has been brewing shampoos and balms for herself and her friends since she was 15, and later turned her hobby into a profitable business.
The body cream spreads easily on the skin and is absorbed in a few minutes, leaving a moisturizing effect for the rest of the day. He helps me out when the heating is turned on and the skin starts giving SOS signals.
The most important component of the cream is hyaluronic acid. Thanks to it, moisture remains in the deep layers of the skin. And it gets there due to the glycerin catalyst in the composition. Panthenol soothes irritations, while jojoba, macadamia and olive oils leave the skin silky and soft.
The product does not leave a greasy film and smells sweet - I inhale the aroma and remember the summer evenings in the south, when my favorite perfume, the smell of the sea, and sweet fruits are pure delight! If you use the cream every day (volume and consumption allow), you can forget not only about dry skin, but also about autumn depression - aromatherapy saves!
Price: 1 990 rub.
Moisturizing body balm Tonic, Clarins
Tested by BeautyHack editor Daria Sizova
I do not like oily and dense textures - most butters lie in an oily film, leaving a sticky sensation. But lotions do not suit my skin during cold weather - light "water" is quickly absorbed, and dryness appears after a couple of hours. The "golden mean" was found by the French brand Clarins. Serious ingredients are hidden behind a cheerful jar and a rich aroma: ginseng extract makes the skin elastic, and apple seed oil moisturizes and nourishes it. I always use it in the morning - geranium, rosewood, mint and rosemary oils together give an incredible aroma that helps to wake up and energizes. What else do you need to be happy this fall?
Price: 2 750 rub.
Body lotion The Fresh Honey Body Lotion, It's Skin
Tested by BeautyHack project manager Anastasia Lyagushkina
It's skin is best known for pioneering the addition of snail mucin to formulations. And with the light hand of the brand's dermatologists, this component has become a superstar in the beauty world! It's nice that It's skin is also concerned with ethical issues - their cares are not tested on animals.
I apply The Fresh Honey Body lotion after a shower. It resembles yogurt in texture, and honey in smell (real, without "chemistry"). After application, a sticky layer immediately remains, but after a couple of minutes it is absorbed and disappears, but the product at this time soothes the skin, removes redness (for example, after epilation) and moisturizes.
Price: 590 rub.
Pomegranate Regenerating Body Milk, Weleda
Tested by BeautyHack editorial assistant Anya Khobotova
When choosing products for the body during cold weather, I start from three factors: hydration, nutrition, lack of stickiness on the skin. I love Weleda for its absolute safety in use, not a single product has responded with allergies.
Despite the fact that this milk is positioned as pomegranate, the composition contains a “bouquet” of valuable oils of other plant components: sesame, apricot, sunflower, shea, olive and, finally, pomegranate seeds! Can you imagine how many fatty acids are in a 200 ml bottle ?! Therefore, the product has an anti-age mark - it saturates cells and protects against external factors (temperature changes, dry air in batteries and air conditioning in a car) that affect the general condition of the dermis.
The aroma of the product, as it should be for Weleda, is herbal, but with notes of pomegranate, orange and sandalwood. A real warm autumn in a bottle!
Price: 1530 rub.
Revitalizing Body Lotion with Coconut Oil and Almond Milk, Dove
Tested by BeautyHack editorial assistant Anya Khobotova
Fresh sheets, washed and laid in an even row of pullovers and, of course, a cream, which consists of a quarter of a moisturizer - what associations do you have with one of the most popular brands in Russia?
I remember Dove lotion in the fall, when the creamy vanilla aromas of coconut and almond, which are simple for spring and summer, suddenly turn out to be appropriate and even desirable.
The lotion is moderately thick and is absorbed after 5-10 minutes. Convenient to use after a workout or swimming pool - the skin is smoothed and looks firm. But be prepared for the pronounced coconut scent to stick to your clothes or pajamas if you apply the product before bed.
Price: 457 rub.
