Roundup: Battle of Body Lotions

Welcome to another edition of round ups! Here I have body lotions. I know I used to have a ton of bottles lying around but I've really tried to slim down to only keep what I want to use up.

If you are interested to see what's my current body lotions and their info, read on!
Also, as a side note, I also provided the first 5 ingredients for each body lotion inspired after doing my review on the Red Flower body lotion that you can read here.

Overall, I think I'm going to try and stay away from Bath and Body works lotions in the future. Their packaging and sale are so attractive though gah! I do notice that drugstores also have a lot of interesting body lotions so I might venture there. But it will probably be a year until I finish my current stash!

What's your favorite brand for body lotions? Do you have a stash of it at home? Or do you just keep one or two at a time?
