So you’ve got your at-home facials down to a science, but what about your body-care routine? It’s equally important to give skin (our largest organ) a little extra TLC on the regular—we’re talking balms, butters, lotions, and oils with clean ingredients to keep your body soft, smooth, and hydrated. Read on for our moisturizing must-haves to find out which formulas are right for you. (Rest assured that no matter your pick, it’s a safe choice, thanks to our Blueprint for Clean™.)
FOR A LIGHTWEIGHT, EVERYDAY GLOW…
Everybody needs a good standard lotion—something fresh and moisturizing that doesn’t cling to your clothes. So, we created our Hydrating Body Lotion in Bright Grapefruit, a light, creamy concoction that includes organic coconut oil and safflower oil. This clean-ingredient combo helps to moisturize and smooth skin, while absorbing super fast. And trust us, you’ll barely notice you’re wearing it—until you get complimented on your healthy-looking glow and that subtle grapefruit scent.*
*After two weeks of use, 100% said it left skin with a healthy-looking glow.
FOR INDULGING DRY SKIN…
Let’s face it: sometimes, lightweight body lotions simply don’t cut it, especially during dry winter months when we need to up our hydration game. That’s where our thick, velvety body butter comes into your clean beauty routine—and this one takes “rich” to a whole new level. For a nourishing experience, we’ve used shea butter and mongongo oil to provide hydration, and more clean ingredients like organic sunflower oil, aloe, and chamomile to soothe and smooth. Oh, and that subtle hint of citrus? That’s our signature Citrus Mimosa scent. Learn more about our take on clean fragrance here.
GENTLE ENOUGH FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY…
Wondering whether you need a body balm and a body lotion? Our answer is an unequivocal “yes.” Think of Balm For All as your lotion’s sidekick, targeting chapped lips, cracked skin, and dry cuticles all year long. Fans report that our Balm For All works like a charm in more ways than one—and for every member of the family. The secret to its success? A gentle, fragrance-free formula of shea butter, jojoba oil, and organic sunflower oil that makes it safe enough for the most delicate skin. It’s even easy on the eyes and has ophthalmology testing to back it up—so it’s safe for contact-lens wearers, too. What can’t this balm do?
FOR SPA-LIKE LUXURY…
We’re here to say that spa-worthy self-care can be an everyday thing, and our Melting Body Balm is proof of that. This balm-meets-oil is so much more than your average moisturizer, with its unmistakable monoi scent and unique texture that melts from balm to oil as you massage it into your skin. Wondering what that feels like? Well, when we ran a consumer study, 100% said skin felt hydrated, soft, and silky. Plus, the appearance of dryness and ashiness was reduced**. That’s why we consider this balm a year-round luxury. After all, hot summer days and freezing-cold winters can do a number on our skin, and sometimes your lotion needs support.
Pro tip: Apply Melting Body Balm after using our Luminous Hydration Body Oil for a spa-worthy moment.

FOR A LUMINOUS GLOW….
Thought body oils were slick and greasy? Not this one. Our Luminous Hydration Body Oil in Citrus Rosemary feels like pure silk on skin. And there’s nothing sticky about it—just a safer, hydrating blend of grapeseed, argan, rosehip, and passionfruit oils, plus a few more Beautycounter-approved ingredients that will change your shower routine forever. After a quick rinse (with either our go-to body wash or creamy body bar), massage the lightweight oil in, soaking up its delicate citrus and rosemary scent. It’s our recipe for head-to-toe glow.
BTW: Did you know that some body oils contain mineral oil or synthetic fillers? These may contain potentially harmful ingredients, so they’re a no-go for us.
