Best body lotion for very dry skin?
Hi can anyone tell me what is the absolute best body lotion for very dry skin? Something that really works and holds moisture for quite awhile without having a bad smell or feeling sticky. I have tried so many lotions, I recently tried Aveeno's dry skin body lotion and its good but it smells like rubber to me and I do not like that plus it can be a little sticky. I have heard Cetaphil and Eucerin make some good ones as well but I wanted some advice on the feel and smell of some good options. I want to try to get one that isnt super expensive since I go through lotion like crazy as I reapply constantly through the day so I prefer a brand from the drugstore or in a big bottle.
I like Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Lotion. I apply it immediately after washing, while the skin is still damp. I've found that my skin stays soft throughout the whole day and best of all, it is odorless.
I hope this helps you

CeraVe is great -- it's super hydrating and restores moisture to the skin, helping it to retain hydration. It restores the balance of lipids and protects skin from drying. It's not greasy at all, and your skin will stay moisturized all day. I love it! It's completely fragrance-free, and you can find it at drug stores for $12-14.
For not too much more, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream is wonderful, too -- I used it on my super dry face for a few weeks, and it totally repaired my skin. You can use it all over! http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P24
I really like Origins Precipitation. There's a smaller bottle it comes in for $22, and really big one that's $55, and then a body souffle that's about $30 called Precipitation Extra. It's AWESOME. I got the big bottle because I swear I have alligator skin. What I use in the shower is the Dove Moisturizing cleansers you can buy at the store for about $7 and then use the Precipitation on my skin to lock in moisture. Hello, baby soft skin! My hands get super dry and this makes them look fantastic and so smooth.
Since my previous post, I tried a drugstore lotion that is working great on my very dry legs. Jergens Ultra Healing which is designed to moisturize extra dry skin has really softened my dry legs. I could tell it was working after the first application. I like to apply it while my skin is still damp from showering, but it works on dry skin anytime of the day, as well. You may want to give it a try.
I hope this helps you.
Moisture Therapy from Avon is wonderful. I used it for years. Now I use Soap and Glory Righteous Brothers body butter. It smells heavenly and gets the job done. Josie Maran has a body butter that is amazing also. Hope this helps.
I love the First Aid Beauty Repair Cream as well. I also adore Sephora's Super Supreme Body Butter. Another thing I love to do is add some Josie Maran argan oil to whatever lotion/cream I am using, it oomphs it up if I'm having a really dry skin day.
I second katie1724 who suggested First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. It is intensive and long lasting. You can find it at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P24
I hope this helps you.

I have super dry skin and always look out for something that could keep my skin hydrated. My favorite is skinue facial lotion. It works wonders for my skin.
I have very very badlydry skin. If I don't use a lotionAvery day my skin is soooo itchy and unbearable to the point where I will have red marks or even close to breaking skin from scratching. No matter how much lotion I would use nothing workEd. I even tried the drugstore eczema creams. Even the soap and glory, bliss, josie maran argan body butter did not work at all for me.
My savior and holy grail of all lotions is korres body butters. These are so life changing, the only product that works for me and I don't even have to apply every day anymore because it truly changes your skin. They have value sets which are way better deals since it can get pricey. So I stock up on them, plus they have all natural ingredients and lovely smelling scents, I love the guava. Sephora has a value set of three right now for the price of one I believe so take a look I couldn't live without these ! Another good way is first aid beauty's cream in the tub, although it is more expensive .
Hope this helps!
