Sure, we should be more religious about applying body lotion post-shower, especially in the middle of winter when the air is lacking serious moisture, but we admit—sometimes, we're just flat-out lazy about it. More of then than not, we'll forget, and by the time we remember, we're well past the ideal "two minutes out of the shower" absorption timeframe, or we simply just don't want to deal with how cold the cream feels on contact with our skin. Enter the in-shower body lotion, which just might remedy our problematic relationship with its out-of-shower counterpart.

After you lather, rinse, and repeat, simply apply a layer of the hydrating formula to your body for just a few minutes, let your skin soak it in, then wash off as you would with a cleanser. Once you towel off, your skin will be just as hydrated as it would be with a traditional lotion. Another plus? They're pretty great substitutes for shaving cream if you're ever in a pinch.
