Dry skin is never afraid to make its presence known during the transitional weather this time of year. But rather than just surrendering to those sandpaper patches that feel (and look) like a nightmare yet again, it’s time to do something about it with a top-notch body lotion. After all, you work hard on the rest of your grooming regime —hair, beard, and so on—so it’s time to give your skin (ahem, the largest organ on your body) the treatment it actually deserves.
But we get it, with the onslaught of options out there, finding a body lotion that actually absorbs well for a non-greasy finish and doesn’t have a feminine scent (which probably turned you off from the product in the first place) is often easier said than done.
To save you from Googling furiously in the drugstore aisle, we put together a list of the best men’s body lotions right here. While they range in ingredients and principles, all of these hard-working products will do what they promise when applied liberally to your arms, hands, legs, and feet post-shower after a towel dry to absorb and lock in moisture.
With that, try one of these top 12 men’s body lotions for the smooth and hydrated skin you’ve always deserved.
