Also known as moisturisers, body butters are a vital step in any body care routine. Body butters help to condition the complexion and replenish moisture levels, transforming the skin from dry and dull to soft and nourished.
Although body butters and creams are similar, there is a small difference. Body butters are richer and more hydrating, making them better suited to those with drier skin types. Sometimes our skin needs a little bit more TLC, which is where body butters come in.
Our carefully selected guide of the best body butters around has something for everyone, ranging from what's most hydrating to what's more firming. Softer, smoother and silker skin is just around the corner.
