Finding the right body cream has always been difficult for me. As someone with dry and itchy skin that's incredibly sensitive and prone to ingrown hairs, I find most body creams feel too greasy, too thick, or not moisturizing enough, and others contain fragrances that irritate my arms and legs. It's been an almost impossible task, but as a bodycare lover and a skincare fan, it's one I have dedicated myself to tackling.

The best product I've found lately to actually meet my needs is Tula's Advanced Hydration Body Moisturizer. It's a thick body cream that hydrates without smothering my skin and prevents pesky little pimples from popping up on my arms and legs. The brand sent a jar over for me to test, and after two months of using it, my body has never felt more moisturized and hydrated throughout an incredibly dry winter.


To buy: $38; tula.com.

The most impressive part about Tula's body cream is how it instantly melts into my skin. I've dealt with more sticky, greasy, butter-like body creams more than I can count, and they've always made it almost impossible to pull on clothing after showering. This is not the case with Tula's formula, which my skin absorbs almost immediately upon application thanks to its Greek yogurt-like consistency. The body moisturizer has yet to feel too heavy, even on warmer, slightly humid days.

Its ingredient list is equally eye-catching. When it comes to reducing irritation and achieving smooth skin, it's important to protect your skin barrier by keeping it hydrated with nourishing ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and shea butter—all three of which are key components in the Tula body cream. Others, like yuzu (the Japanese citrus) and vitamin C, brighten, smooth, and firm skin. The overall result is nothing short of incredible hydration as well as soft, supple skin.

Although $38 might sound pricey for a body cream, the 8.1-ounce tub has actually lasted me for months; I'm only about halfway through the jar. It's a great value for money, and I'll happily buy a refill for myself when my sample runs out.

As a testament to how popular it's been, the Advanced Hydration Body Moisturizer actually sold out within two weeks after launching on January 3, and was finally restocked at the end of February. You don't want to risk it selling out again, so grab Tula's shopping writer-approved moisturizer now.
