Magnesium Lotion reviews

I was recommended to use the magnesium…

“I was recommended to use the magnesium gel by my physio. I also purchased Vitamin D spray as I am deficient and B12 spray as I suffer with Fibromyalgia which affects my energy levels. Too soon to evaluate the sprays but the magnesium is definitely helping with the pain in my muscles and I would recommend it. The magnesium sleep lotion has resulted in the best sleep in years. Thank you.”

- Janet Mellor

Everything I buy from this company more…

Everything I buy from this company more than meets my expectations.. I use many of the vitamin sprays, and also am totally committed to the Magnesium Body Butter and the Magnesium and lavender lotion which aids my sleep. My skin is remarked upon all the time as being glowing and soft.

Magnesium Body Butter vs Magnesium Lotion

What is Magnesium Body Butter?

BetterYou Magnesium Body Butter is a deeply rich, intensively moisturising body butter containing a perfect balance of skin-kind ingredient—shea butter.

What is the difference?

Magnesium Body Butter is perfect when you need a more intensive moisturiser but with all the benefits of magnesium. Ingredients such as cocoa butter help to form a protective barrier on the skin. The ingredients are also helpful during the winter months, when the skin is prone to chapping.

Magnesium lotions are a much lighter way to moisturise. They are designed for a more direct application and often used on arms, stomach and thighs. The benefit of lotions is that they are better for using on the move as they don’t leave an oily feel on your skin.

Which one is best for me?

Magnesium Body Butter is excellent for full-body, daily application and is ideal for dry skin. Containing 15% magnesium oil the Body Butter is gentle on even the most sensitive skin and can be used on all ages. Just 5ml provides 75mg (21.5% RDA) of elemental magnesium.

Magnesium Lotion is applied more lightly, and both moisturises your skin and provides excellent levels of magnesium. Just 5ml delivers 150mg (43% RDA) of elemental magnesium.

All our magnesium lotions are:

From natural sources

Free from synthetic fragrances and colouring

Suitable for vegetarians

Can I use magnesium lotions while pregnant?


Suitable during pregnancy?

Magnesium + Calcium Lotion


Magnesium Sleep Kids' Lotion


Magnesium Sleep Lotion


Magnesium Body Lotion


Can I overdose on magnesium lotion?

You don’t have to worry about overdosing on magnesium lotion due to its transdermal application, which means the mineral is absorbed through the skin rather than the digestive tract. Upper limits are only set when using the product orally—this is because large doses can have a laxative effect due to magnesium being a natural relaxant.

Best areas to apply magnesium

You can apply magnesium lotion anywhere on the body, avoiding contact with eyes and broken or damaged skin. Simply apply to the area you wish to target and massage it into the skin.

For best results, apply the lotion to clean, dry skin.
