    Our Top 5 Favorite Handmade Lotions

    Back in September, we showed you gals how to make your own handmade lotions at home. Did anyone try it? While it can be a (sometimes messy) learning curve, it’s always fun to make your own beauty products. But if you’re short on time and would rather purchase some awesome handmade lotions for inspiration before you try making your own, check out our five favorite picks below.

    Why is it important to seek out handmade or organic and natural products? Drugstore name brands are often filled with harmful ingredients that can leak toxins into your skin. Check out FitSugar‘s list of ingredients to look out for. Many can be found in conventional lotions.

    Drum roll, please…here our top five handmade lotions!

    There’s something about a lemon-herb scented lotion that feels super fresh, clean and bright. And how cute is this packaging?! The nourishing shea butter cream has a wonderfully thick consistency that’s easy to spread and absorbs fast. It leaves your skin lightly scented, moisturized and soft, not greasy. What makes it natural? It’s free from petroleum-based products, parabens, dyes and synthetic fragrances. (Frog Goes to Market, $12.50)

    Made in San Francisco, this gentle, vegan, cruelty-free lotion soothes even the most sensitive skin with a blend of organic Italian bergamot and pink grapefruit, plus jasmine, jojoba oil and shea butter. We love that the hypoallergenic, weightless moisturizer is finished off in recyclable packaging and doesn’t have sulfates or parabens. (Piper Tate, $14)

    Have you girls ever tried a solid lotion bar? It’s very easy to apply and is great for everyday use. It’s also perfect to travel with and tote around, as you won’t have to worry about it opening and dumping all over your bag. You can also control how much you put on by pressing down more or less, making it last a little longer than liquids. The tangy scent of this bar is amazing, thanks to tangerine essential oil and other natural ingredients. Use on your face or to relieve dry or itchy skin. (Zoe’s Corner, $9.50)

    This beautifully packaged lotion is full of awesome oils and butters: shea butter to soothe and protect, avocado oil for a bathed-in-butter feel, and jojoba and grapeseed oils for smoothness without any ickiness. Packed with antioxidant vitamins and no junk or fillers, it’s light and absorbs quickly to leave your skin ultra soft. And can we talk about the fragrance—ginger ale? We swear this amazing lotion smells exactly like the beloved drink! (Firebird Bath Body, $9)

    Like your lotion fragrance-free? This goat milk and aloe hand and body lotion is for you! Dry skin gets fast relief and super hydration from the extra-rich, all-natural formula, delivering silky smoothness without harmful ingredients or slick residue. Made with shea butter, grapeseed and apricot kernel oils, and concentrated goat milk and aloe vera extracts, the lotion is high in proteins, vitamins and minerals to comfort your skin throughout the cold season. (Sweet Stuff Natural, $14)

    Girls, which lotion sounds best to you? And what are you currently using at home?
