Dry skin is never afraid to make its presence known, especially during the fall and winter months. But rather than just surrendering to those sandpaper patches that feel (and look) like a nightmare, it’s time to do something about it with some top-notch body lotion.

Body lotion isn’t just a gimmick, big guy. You work hard on the rest of your grooming regiment —hair, beard, smelling good, and so on—so it’s time to give your skin (ahem, the largest organ on your body) the treatment it actually deserves. You’re never too rugged for some skin TLC.

With the onslaught of options out there, shopping for body lotion can be overwhelming. And finding a body lotion that actually absorbs well for a non-greasy finish and doesn’t have a feminine scent (which probably turned you off from the product in the first place) is often easier said than done. a

To save you from Googling furiously in the drugstore aisle, check out this list of the best men’s body lotions on the market. While they range in ingredients and principles, all of these hard-working products will do exactly what they promise when applied liberally to your arms, hands, legs, and feet. Pro tip: Apply them post-shower after a towel dry to absorb and lock in moisture. Bye-bye, dry skin.

With that, try one of these top 14 men’s body lotions for the smooth and hydrated skin you’ve always deserved.
