Body Cream

If you've ever been to the bath and beauty stores, I'm sure you've seen the shelves full of containers and tubes full of body cream. But then you see the islands in the middle of the store riddled with bottles of lotion. Body cream is priced higher than the lotion, but what's the difference? Is body cream just lotion at a higher price for those beauty product suckers who think there really is a difference? Or is body cream really a better product that deserves its higher price? Here's the quick run-down of body cream: what it is and how to make a choice with this product.

Next time you're in the beauty store, take a look at the samples of the body cream and the samples of the lotion, and compare. What do you observe? Believe it or not, body cream and lotion are two distinctly different products. Lotion is a lighter moisturizer, while body cream is more heavy duty. Also, body cream is a little more luxurious!

Body cream also has more protective characteristics than most lotions. And in addition to intense moisturizing power, body cream also contains nutrients that nourish your skin and give it an added "glow," if you will. Lotion is moisturizing, but usually doesn't contain those added ingredients that bump up the price of body cream.

So now that you know the difference between body cream and just plain lotion, you can choose your body cream. Different stores and suppliers carry body creams with different ingredients and characteristics. The best way to find a body cream is to check out the labels; when it comes to body creams, you can trust the labels. Check out what needs your skin has and pick a body cream that fills those needs. Also, make sure to pick a body cream that smells delicious!

Choosing a body cream can be just like choosing any other beauty product. You may have to go through a period of trial and error to find what you really like and to find brands and companies that you like, but it promises to be a fun journey!
