Incorporating a nourishing body butter into your routine is a great way to prep dry skin for summer. Here are the ones we rate.
By Sapna Rao

Olive Oil Butter, £18 | The Body Shop

Best For: Intense nourishment 

Why We Rate It: The Body Shop has always been a go-to for affordable, natural body butters that feel great on the skin. This one is intensely creamy, but with zero oiliness or grease, and works to replenish seriously dry skin. Promising 96 hours of moisture and protection after every use, this will transform scaly legs in need of some TLC.

Butta Drop Whipped Oil Body Cream, £25 | Fenty Skin

Best For: Conditioning 

Why We Rate It: A new launch for Fenty Skin, this product has made serious waves in the beauty world. Its satisfying ‘whipped oil’ texture is a combination of tropical butters, extracts and seven oils that work to deeply condition skin. Expect to see a glossy non-sticky shine right away, while the product gets to work replenishing and renewing thirsty skin deep down in the dermis.

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, £16.30 | Sol de Janeiro

Best For: Smoothing & tightening 

Why We Rate It: Brimming with skin-loving natural ingredients, this award-winning product aims to tighten and firm skin, while replenishing lost moisture, too. With a conditioning blend of cupuacu butter, acai oil, and coconut oil – all of which help to lock in long-term hydration – it gets rid of dryness to create a lasting, visible full-body glow.

Body Creme, £32 | Ouai

Best For: A lightweight feel 

Why We Rate It: The brainchild of A-list hair stylist Jen Atkin, Ouai’s body range is every bit as impressive as its haircare. The lightweight texture leaves skin feeling supple and baby smooth – making it one of our summer must-haves. Its floral ‘Shibuya’ scent – made with a blend of Mediterranean citrus, warm spices, violet, rose and white musk – is an added bonus.

Plantastic Deep Nourishing Moisture Balm, £11.50 | Beauty Pie

Best For: Soothing

Why We Rate It: Formulated with a unique ‘gel cream’ consistency, shea butter, sesame and coconut oil combine in this body balm to coat skin and leave it feeling nourished and smooth. Meanwhile, vitamin E heals skin that’s irritated or sunburned, working as well on the face as it does on the body. It even included skin barrier protective qualities, thanks to added tomato stem-cell extract.

Summer Silk Nourishing Body Lotion, £26 | Summer Fridays

Best For: Long-lasting powers 

Why We Rate It: With a collection of skincare hits already under its belt, Summer Fridays has applied its expertise to a new nourishing body cream. Full of plant-derived butters and oils that deliver all-day hydration – including an antioxidant-rich blend of grapeseed, argan, linseed and rosehip oils – you’ll find skin will feel silky smooth for longer.

Body Butter, £8 | Sunday Rain

Best For: Softening & hydrating  

Why We Rate It: This infusion of mango and coconut is like a holiday in a jar – a real treat for the senses. But don’t let its affordable price tag fool you. The formula is rich and luxurious, drenching the skin in hydration that lasts all day. Bear in mind that it works best when slathered onto skin after exfoliating to maintain that silky smooth feel.
