Try First Aid Beauty moisturizer.  Great for face and body and good price point.  Boscia has some great cleansers and moisturizers with emollients.  In winter I use a night cream as my am and pm Moisturizer.

@freckles82- You might look into Josie Maran, or Dr. Perricone both lines have  the products to help you dry sensitive skin. Good Luck! Smiley Happy

I too have skin that gets really dry (plus the dry wihte patches really stand out on my brown skin hehe). I *NEVER* use lotions from Bath and Body and Body works and other similar brands. When you buy a lotion, look at the ingredients list, if alchohol is one of the first ingredients, put it back on the shelf and move on. Alcohol I'm pretty sure is used in lotion to help it dry faster and prevent it from giving that greasy feeling. However, too much alcohol makes the lotion ineffective and end up drying the skin out even more. Those hyper scented lotions I noticed early on do nothing for people whose skin is actually dry.

 

You need at least two different lotions, one specifically for your feet (I use Vaseline petroleum jelly if my feet are exrtemly dry to the point of cracking and bleeding, or Goldbond's foot cream) because normal lotions cannot penetrate the skin there, and body lotion (Aveeno, Goldbonds, any of the mid range lotions at the drug store will work so long as alcohol is not in the begining of the ingredient list).

 

You can use body lotion as hand lotion, but I prefer not to because it feels greasey and normally doesn't last through hand washing. Soap and Glory has a hand lotion that worked really well for me. Goldbonds also has a hand lotion, and while it's a bit greasy, it does last through handwashing (which is really good if you're like me and wash your hands a lot).

 

I also use the same Clinique face moisturizers as you. The dramically different works okay for me during the summer, but during the winter even two pumps doesn't cut it for me. I just started using the moisture surge and that's been working really well. Even so, face lotion can only go so far. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids, and try using a moisturising mask during the week (no specific suggestions yet on this one, still trying to find one that doesn't give me breakouts) .
