Dry Skin Emergency Body Moisturizers

January has been a seriously cold month! In fact its actually been snowing here in Glasgow and I think a lot of parts of the UK. I do admit that I love the snow in small doses and I think it looks pretty and romantic and I love to walk in it and everything, but when it gets to the point of me not being able to get around the city to go to work or uni or just go about my day to day activities it can get a little bit annoying. Another thing that bugs me about the cold weather...dry skin! I have the worst case of dry skin right now and it is a little distressing.
Fortunately, I'm pretty stocked up on body moisturisers from Christmas and a few beauty hauls too many but there's a few that I've been using a lot more than any others in my collection at this current moment at time and I thought I'd share them with you guys. The Cocoa Brown Chocolate Whip* has got to be my favourite body moisturiser when I'm in a rush. It contains Vitamin E and Panthenol and when I put this on it absorbs into my skin so fast! I love everything about this from the packaging to heavenly chocolate scent to the fact it leaves absolutely no excess stickiness whatsoever. Oh and if you are a lover of faux tan this little gem is oil free and specifically designed to help preserve your tan that little bit longer by ensuring that it fades evenly. I recommend!
I couldn't have did a post on my favourite body moisturizers without including The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter. This is probably the first thing I ever bought from TBS and considering that I started shopping there in my teens that is a lot of years that I have been repurchasing this bad boy. I have loads of these in different flavours and although I go off them from time to time due to the very rich consistency when the weather gets cold again I'm always happy to start using them again. These really do smell amazing, last for ages, and are perfect on particularly dry areas of your body such as the feet or knees and elbows.
Now lastly is a new addition to my collection as I got this for Christmas from my dear mum but its the Soap and Glory Daily Smooth Body Lotion. Again this is quite fast absorbing but I like to use this one at night purely because of the scent which is a sort of musky floral one (I'm not really selling it here am I?). Its such a calming smell and really relaxing so it puts me right off to sleep. It also contains rosehip oil and cocoa butter both of which are exceptionally well known moisturising ingredients and this one is particularly good for dry skin on the legs, which I seem to get quite a lot after shaving. And who couldn't love the Soap and Glory signature pink packaging?!
What are you guys favourite body moisturizers? Do you like to switch it up in the colder months?
