The Best-Smelling Drugstore Body Lotion Is... (Psst! It's Under $5!)

If you tend to feel overwhelmed when you’re in the drugstore faced with all those body lotion options, here’s a tip: St. Ives’ Pear Nectar & Soy Body Lotion is the one you should buy.

Why? Well for starters, it smells divine. I could go on and on about the slightly fruity, yet not-too-sweet smell, but rather than just take my word for it you should head over to and read some of the 5 star reviews on the stuff. There are over 1700 rave reviews FYI, because yes, this lotion is the bomb.

Of course, a delightful scent is just a small part of what a body lotion should do–it should also leave your skin super smooth and hydrated and luckily this lotion scores high marks in the moisture department as well. It’s not as thick as some other lotions you’ve probably tried, but no matter–it absorbs into your skin quickly and leaves your skin crazy soft for hours on end. I apply it liberally in the mornings after I shower and when I’m getting ready for bed, my skin is still hydrated and vibrant and there’s the perfect hint of pear scent. I love it.

Obviously, the best part of this lotion is the price! A beauty product that not only works, but also smells great for under $5? If I could buy this stuff by the truckload I totally would!
