Five irresistible body lotions that smell like summer

A body lotion should be part of everyone’s skincare routine all year round, but it is an especially important step in the summer to help keep our pins and limbs silky soft and hydrated. 

Incorporating a body lotion that also smells incredible is a great (read: affordable) way to trick our minds into thinking we are somewhere gorgeously exotic. Thankfully, there are many wonderful body lotions on the market at the moment that smell just like summer. 

A gorgeous smelling body lotion is an instant mood booster, so here we have found five of the best body lotions that smell like summer. From rum cocktails to juicy mango, these are the scents we can’t get enough of.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, £25.20

Sol de Janeriro’s Brazilian Bum Bum Cream has become one of the beauty industry’s worst kept beauty secrets. The Brazilian beauty cream has become a cult beauty product, not least because of its fabulous name.

A nourishing cocktail of ingredients go into the cream. Cupuaçu butter, açaí oil, and coconut oil are just a few of the powerful skin-boosting ingredients in this fast-absorbing cream. Designed to help visibly tighten the skin and leave it feeling wonderfully soft, the cream will help you achieve irresistibly radiant skin.

Another huge draw is the incredible scent it leaves on the body. Made with pistachio, almond, vanilla and salted caramel notes, it is warm and enticing – perfect for summer nights.

If you’re longing to sip rum cocktails on a beach with the sun on your skin and sand in between your toes, then this is the next best thing. The Malin + Goetz  Rum Body Lotion is a warm, seductive fragrance that leaves your skin smelling of summer. 

It has a non-sticky formula that leaves your skin wonderfully soft and gorgeously scented. Far from cloyingly sweet like some other summer body scents, this lotion smells like a coconutty rum punch – in the best way. 

The lotion itself is made with vitamin B5 and absorbent fatty acids to deliver long-lasting hydration to your skin, which is perfect if your skin is in dire need of some moisture.

Molton Brown Jasmine & Sun Rose, £26

Intoxicating, exotic and intense – the jasmine flower has a scent that is often strong enough to fill a whole garden in the summer. The aromatic flower is at the heart of the Molton Brown Jasmine & Sun Rose body lotion. A perfect summer scent, it captures the feeling and scent of a garden at dusk.

Sensual, musky, yet with floral undertones, the body lotion envelops the skin with notes of raspberry, jasmine and rose for a seriously expensive smelling fragrance. 

The lightweight lotion leaves a gorgeous scent on the skin but also conditions and nourishes, leaving it feeling wonderfully soft.
