The best body lotions for men: soften your rough exterior

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

The CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion claims to provide 24-hour relief from itchiness and dryness. Free from fragrance and oil, it’s ideal for those who want something simple, yet effective. The non-irritating formula should be applied directly after showering.

Gold Bond Men’s Everyday Moisture

Consider the everyday essential lotion from Gold Bond. An affordable price tag is complemented by a non-greasy concoction that absorbs quickly and leaves the skin feeling refreshed and ready for the trials of the day.

Jack Black Cool Moisture Body Lotion

As the name suggests, this Jack Black Cool Moisture lotion produces a pleasant, cooling sensation on the skin thanks to a combination of jojoba oil, vitamin E, and menthol. While appropriate for use as needed, the brand suggests applying it after a  post-workout shower to revitalize tired muscles, and we couldn’t agree more.

Lubriderm Men’s 3-in-1 Fragrance-Free Lotion

For those in search of a lotion you can safely use as a body, face, and post-shave moisturizer, we recommend this three-in-one option from Lubriderm. An aloe vera base is bolstered by soothing mineral extracts, which work to improve the health of one’s skin with each use. And best of all? It’s inexpensive and can be found at almost any grocery store, pharmacy, and corner market. 

Brickell Men’s Deep Moisture Body Lotion

Infused with healing jojoba oil, aloe vera, vitamin E, and green tea extract, this moisturizing body lotion from Brickell is a great option for guys looking to revitalize dry skin. Simply apply a small amount of the to your skin as needed, which should be every day during the colder months. Every. Day.

Vaseline Men Extra Strength Body Lotion

An oldie but goodie, the fragrant Vaseline Extra Strength Body and Face Lotion packs a punch. It absorbs quickly and feels great to the touch. Although hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic (fancy talk for non-irritating and won’t clog pores), we wouldn’t recommend for your face. Instead, stick to the body and splurge a little more for a good face moisturizer. Your elbows and knees stay covered up in the cold, but your face bears the brunt of all that wild winter weather out there.
