2. B. Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream
From kim(berly) in Can anyone recommend a great daily moisturizer?

3. A. Curel Daily Moisture Therapy Lotion

From tenderlee in Can anyone recommend a great daily moisturizer?
“Curel has been my favorite for approx 15 years. Affordable, easy to find too. Leaves skin soft until next bath or hand washing, and never sticky or oily. Love it for my legs which tend to be dry in winter. It lasts from one shower to the next.”

3. B.Curel Life’s Stages Lotion (Menopause & Beyond)

From EleanorSM in Can anyone recommend a great daily moisturizer?
“I’ve never fallen for the very expensive moisturizers so many companies advertise will “dramatically” change your appearance. People I meet usually think I am 10+ years younger than I am. I am presently using Curel Life’s Stages (menopause and beyond) that I buy off the shelf at a local supermarket. I like the feel of it, and it seems to soak in.”

4. Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion

From Bekah in Dry, oh my!
“I have diabetes and my skin zaps quicker than the Sahara. I have found Gold Bond Ultimate (for all over) is the only lotion that makes my skin feel worth touching.”

5. Jergens Lotion

From Laura Stewart in Dry, oh my!
I use a triple threat – in the shower I use Softsoap ultra rich shea butter creame body wash, when I get out I use a light body oil, once I’m dry I use Jergens moisterizing lotion. Sounds like alot, but it works – I also brush my skin nightly to get rid of dry skin. Your skin will glow!”

From lisawod in Can anyone recommend a great daily moisturizer?

7. A. Nivea Age Defying Moisturizer for Body

From Laura Rose in Can anyone recommend a great daily moisturizer?
“The best I ever tried is Nivea Age Defying Moisturizer! I tried so many moisturizers and wasn’t happy until this one…it works WONDERS! Soaks right in…not feeling greasy and even takes away the ‘scaley’ look on my arms. leaving them immediately smooth and younger looking. Its amazing! I tried other Nivea creams but they aren’t like this one. It’s in a blue plastic bottle with white lettering. It says Nivea Body on the bottle.”

7. B. Nivea Creme

From Herta in I’m 64 with dry skin.
“Nivea — the one in the blue tin. I’ve been using it twice a day for many years (I’m 68 now) and get comments on my skin all the time. Your skin needs water and fat and that’s what you’ll find in the blue tin.”

8. Olay Body Quench Body Lotion for Extra Dry Skin

“Olay body Quench body lotion — purple bottle — for extra dry skin. Smells good & isn’t sticky.”

9. Origins Precipitation Extra

From Kelly J. D. in Does anyone have a good lotion or oil for dry skin?
“Try Origins Precipitation Extra. It is for very dry skin, but is not greasy or heavy. It has a slight citrus smell that in no way overwhelms the senses. I use it everyday after showering and am pleased with the results.”

From laurenc in Dry, oh my!

I use natural almond oil, bathe with peppermint soap and black soap.

13. Coconut oil

From lizalunavita in Dry, oh my!
For all over body including my face, coconut oil is a luscious moisturizer. My husband and I even use it in the bedroom, for some erotic frolic and fun. It smells good yet has a light pleasing taste…smile, smile (that’s 2 smiles, one from each of us).

14. Mineral oil

From susanpariseau in I’m 64 with dry skin.
I swear by a capful of mineral oil in a warm bath. I have done this not only as a means of relaxation but when I get out of the tub my skin is soft, smooth and supple. It has a glow that looks very healthy. It also helps with dry elbows, knees and feet.

15. Neutrogena Body Oil

From Gift Basket Creator in Dry, oh my!
“I use and have been using Neutrogena Body Oil for years . Just apply it to damp skin after your shower. Dry skin runs in my family and it’s one of the best items I’ve ever found. I use the light sesame formula, but unscented is also available.”

16. Olive oil

From dddanse in Can anyone recommend a great daily moisturizer?
After taking a hot shower or washing my face, I gently tip a small bottle which I have put some olive oil in against my fingers and then lightly massage it into my face and neck. I let it sit 5 minutes or so and then any that has not been absorbed I just lightly press a tissue against the area. First, however, I make sure that any excess is massaged down into the neck and upper chest area. People have been coming up and asking me what I am using as my skin looks so radiant.
