These in-shower lotions incorporate moisturizing right into your shower routine, often combining with water or steam to amplify the product’s hydrating properties. Apply them to your skin after soap or body wash to leave it feeling soft and supple. Choose the brand that best suits your skin, whether it’s extra sensitive, or just needs a light, softly scented coating, and be protected all day long.
