The Best Smelling Body Lotion of 2022


A good quality body lotion can make you look, feel, and smell great. But without trying them out for yourself it can be tough to know which is the best fit for your skin. 

Keep reading to discover the best smelling body lotions in 2022. 

What should I look for in a body lotion?

There’s no shortage of different types of body lotions available, but which features should you prioritize? Here are 7 considerations to make when shopping for a new body lotion:

Skin type

Your skin type can have a big effect on the type of lotion that will work best for you. 

If you have dry skin, look for a lotion that is richer and more emollient. If you have oily skin, look for lotions that are light or provide a non-greasy formula to avoid clogging your pores. 

If you have sensitive skin, you’ll want to be extra careful about the ingredients in the body lotion you choose. Many body lotions contain fragrances and other chemicals that can irritate sensitive skin, so you may want to opt for a fragrance-free lotion or one that contains only natural ingredients.


Another thing to consider when choosing a body lotion is the climate you live in. 

If you live in a dry climate then it’s especially important to pick a lotion that will moisturize your skin. Many body lotions on the market are specifically designed for dry environments.

Moisturizing properties

A good body lotion will help to hydrate and nourish your skin. Look for a lotion that contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin, which are known for their ability to lock in moisture.

Protection from the sun

Many body lotions now contain SPF, which can help protect the skin from the sun's harmful rays. If you're looking for a body lotion with a sun protection factor (SPF), look no further than Australian Gold's sunscreen collection.

Natural ingredients

If you’re looking for a more natural option, look for body lotions that contain ingredients like Kakadu plum or coconut oil. These ingredients are known for their ability to hydrate and nourish the skin, without relying on long lists of chemical ingredients. 


Body lotions can range in price, depending on the brand and the ingredients. However, you don’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money to get a good body lotion. There are plenty of affordable options on the market that will still provide effective and excellent results for your skin.


Finally, it’s no secret that many of us judge our beauty products by their scents, and body lotion is no exception!

You’ll usually have a wide variety of scents to choose from, so feel free to choose what appeals to you, or matches the time of day or season you’ll be wearing the lotion.  

Pamper your skin with the best smelling body lotions on the market

There are several excellent body lotion brands on the market today, but few can match the natural skin-nourishing feel of Australian Gold.

To prove it, here are some of our most well-loved (and great-smelling) body lotions for 2022. 

Essential Fresh Lotus Body Lotion 

First up is Australian Gold’s Essential Fresh Lotus Body Lotion

Formulated with Kakadu Plum and Vitamin E, this lotion helps to nourish and protect skin due to its high antioxidant levels. 

The lotion also contains organic, virgin coconut oil that helps promote healthy, moisturized skin. 

And the smell? The cedarwood oil highlights the delicate floral scent which lingers on the skin when applied. The lotion comes in a pump bottle for convenient use. At just $8.99, the Essential Fresh Lotus Body Lotion is a great smelling option at a reasonable price. 

SPF 50 Plant-Based Lotion

Are you looking for a natural and effective way to protect your skin every day? 

Australian Gold’s SPF 50 Plant-Based Lotion is made with Aloe Vera and coconut oil to nourish and support healthy skin. 

Broad-spectrum coverage offers protection from UVA and UVB rays so you can enjoy your time in the sun worry-free. 

With a light and refreshing coconut scent, this lotion will leave you feeling like you’re on a tropical vacation! One of your future best buys at just $13.99.

After-Sun Moisturizer with Hemp

After a long day in the sun, there’s nothing better to come home to than a nourishing body lotion that can replenish your skin naturally.

That’s exactly what you’ll get from our After-Sun Moisturizer with Hemp. It features a rich assortment of vitamins A, E, and C to soothe and fortify the skin.

The added hemp seed oil delivers excellent moisture to the skin to both replenish it and protect it from the environment. You even get a dash of caffeine for energized skin that contributes to an improved appearance.

With its relaxing sweet herb fragrance, this is a body lotion that you’ll enjoy using again and again – all for the affordable price of $10.97 for 16 ounces.

What’s the best body lotion to use?

There are many reasons to choose an all-natural body lotion over a traditional, chemical-based lotion. 

For starters, plant-based ingredients are generally gentler on the skin, drawing on ingredients such as herbs, flowers, and oils. Their natural formulation also means that they tend to be more environmentally friendly. 

Natural body lotions may also offer a lighter scent than their traditional counterparts, making them ideal for those with sensitive noses. 

Most commercial body lotions on the market today contain a mix of synthetic ingredients, fragrances, and other harsh chemicals. These ingredients can do more harm than good to your skin. 

Embrace the vitamins and antioxidants present in natural ingredients to leave your skin nourished and feeling its best. 

So which body lotion smells the best?

We’ll let you in on a secret – Australian Gold’s one-of-a-kind essential oil blend is what gives our products their signature scent. 

Our plant-based lotions can give you that “tropical vacation” vibe all year round, whether you’re relaxing by the pool or at home. 

Whether you opt for refreshing eucalyptus or the tantalizing aroma of citrus wood, our scents are sure to leave you feeling pampered.
