When it comes to what we put on our faces, we'll splurge on the latest anti-aging cream that promises to work miracles on those crow's feet, and tend to spend far too much time dutifully performing each of the six steps in our skin care regimens.

As for tending to the rest of our skin, we couldn't care less.

So when we run out of lotion, we swing by our local CVS and pick up whatever's on sale. Dermatologists say this is a dumb move. That's because just like the products you use on your face, your body lotion should cater to your skin type. So if you're extra dry or tend to break out, have oily skin or live in a super-dry climate, you'd ideally use a lotion designed specifically to deal with what your skin needs.

Skip ahead to see the 13 best body lotions at the drugstore.

But does this mean you have to plonk down your plastic for a moisturizer from a high-end brand? Nope. Drugstore picks work just as well as the spendier options; you just have to know which ones to choose. That's where our readers come in. They've tried every lotion in the body care aisle and shared their honest reviews on what worked for their skin and what didn't. The result? This list of the 13 best body lotions under $10. Ready to find your best body lotion now? It's waiting for you at the drugstore.

Best Body Lotion No. 10: Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Skin Therapy, $5.50
TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 9.2*
Why it's great: Readers find that this "rich and creamy, long-lasting and healing" moisturizer is a must-have for dry skin, as well as stretch marks and discoloration. "It instantly soothes my skin and evens out skin tone. Stretch marks and scars disappear or minimize in days," reports one reader. However, reviewers point out that the lotion's texture is rather thick, and the scent is both rich and sweet. If you have oily skin or an opposition to "smelling like a candy bar," consider this your warning. Otherwise, prepare to be hydrated.
