*Jergens Deep Conditioning Oatmeal Body Cream - £4.99 from Boots & Superdrug

I've recently really got into moisturising my body after a hot bath or shower. It's one of those things that I used to do religiously then got a bit lax about and sometimes go back to when I find a product I really love. I used to really like The Body Shop's Body Butter but I felt it took forever to sink in and I was walking around with my arms and legs spread like I had fake tan on waiting for it do do something as the smell alone wasn't worth the time and effort it took to moisturise from top to toe. However, it seems like the time and effort is really only wasted when using some products as with this body cream I didn't feel any oiliness or stickiness and within a matter of two minutes I could put my pyjamas on and just add some more to very dry areas like the heels of my feet, knees and elbows. It made my skin feel smooth to the touch and I was pleasantly surprised when I had no stickiness or residue. It really does nourish the skin and half of me thinks afterwards 'How have I never moisturised before? My skin feels beastly!" as I'm using it as get to the drier areas.

However it's the scent that cinched it for me. Despite the fact that I love sweet scents and I am excited about November just for LUSH's Snow Fairy, I am really attracted to the scent of this beauty. It smells exactly like oatmeal so very natural and earthy which I love, especially after you've had a hot shower with an invigorating gel or scrub when I really don't want to pile on more heavy scents.

The best thing about this is that it's £4.99! While I can't find it available online I have been assured you can buy it from Superdrug and Boots and for a 200ml tub that's not as thick or 'filmy' as The Body Shop's, I feel you can't really go wrong.
