The Best Body Firming Moisturisers
It’s nearly Spring! The scent of Jasmine is in the air, the days are getting longer, and the air itself is starting to feel much warmer. That means it’s almost time to swap our Winter wardrobe over for Summer, and break out our short sleeves shirts and shorter pants. It also means we’ll be displaying a little more arm and leg than we have been – and once we reach 40+, that can be a scary prospect. We’ve found the best body firming moisturisers, to not only hydrate and nourish, but also to help firm up neglected Winter skin. Interested? Read on to find our pick of the best body firming moisturisers on the market.
La Mer The Body Creme
Formulated with La Mer’s famed Miracle Broth, the La Mer The Body Creme instantly comforts and renews your skin, saturating it with deep, long-lasting hydration with the creamy, dreamy, rich formulation.

Formulated without Parabens and Phthalates, The Body Creme is super gentle on your skin. 200ml RRP $260.00. Also available in a 300ml size.
Synergie Skin CelluTite Body
The lightweight, easily absorbed Synergie Skin CelluTite Body gel helps to firm and contour, and is designed to visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite and smooth out dimpled skin. The gel is formulated with a blend of Jania Rubens Extract, that is clinically proven to help detoxify cells, and Caffeine which causes fat cells to dehydrate and shrink. Used over time, the potent formula helps to lift and tighten the skin on your body. Australian made and owned, CelluTite gel is free from Parabens, artificial colours, and synthetic fragrances. 200ml RRP $80.00.
Retreatment Botanics Wild Kakadu Hand & Body Cream
If you can’t get up to Olivia Newton-John’s Gaia Retreat to pamper your body, this might just be the next best thing! The delightfully scented, nurturing, Vitamin C-rich Retreatment Botanics Wild Kakadu Hand & Body Cream does double duty, helping to firm the delicate skin on your hands, and your body. The luxurious, absorbent formula with key actives of Kakaduu Plum, Macadamia Oil, Cacao and Shea Butter works to ﬁrm and brighten, leaving your skin feeling soft, silky smooth and hydrated.

Nivea Q10 Plus C Firming Body Lotion
The Nivea Q10 Plus C Firming Body Lotion states that you should see noticeably firmer skin and improved elasticity in just 10 days! The fast absorbing lotion intensively moisturises even the driest skin, leaving it soft, smooth, and hydrated, while powerful antioxidants Q10 and Vitamin C go to work helping to improve skin firmness and elasticity. I’ve been using this wonder cream over Winter (playing Winter sport and having skin on show makes it necessary), and my skin definitely feels firmer, with more elasticity. Highly recommended. 250ml RRP $6.95. Also available in 400ml size (pictured).
Jergen’s Oil Infused Skin Firming Lotion
Another brilliant firming body moisturiser is the Jergens Oil Infused Skin Firming Lotion, which works on cellulite prone and crepey skin.

Skin is left hydrated and nourished, and over time skin elasticity and firmness is improved. 496ml RRP $11.99.
