    I just started using the Dove ProAge body moisturizer and I really like it. My skin is dry, especially in the winter months and this worked very well. The dry, bumpy skin on my upper arms is gone!

    Dove's Cream Oil Intensive Care for extra dry skin and Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning lotion or cream. I've recently fallen in love with these! You can find them both at Wal-mart. HTH!

    I buy Hemp lotion at Walmart. It's something like $5 a bottle and smells divine. They have I think 3 or 4 scents and moisturizes like crazy. I like that it doesn't have petroleum or mineral oil in it, so it actually absorbs into the skin and protects instead of just sitting on top of the skin.

    I also like the Vaseline Cocoa Butter lotion.

    Another I love is Udderly Smooth (sp?). Not to be confused with Bag Balm. This is a lotion and though it doesn't have the best scent, it works really well.

    J.R. Watkins Apothecary Shea Butter - Target in the cosmetics section. It's so thick & yummy scented!

    I have this one:

    100% Cocoa Butter by Queen Helene - anywhere, I think. It's great for 99 cents!

    Oooohhh...do you use this everywhere or just on your hands? Sounds yummy. Does is smell like Cocoa/Shea Butter or just Lavender (my favorite, BTW)?

    I use the Lavender Shea Butter all over my hands, at night only. The lavender, which I think is strong, & that I love, sends me off to sleep with a smile.

    I'll need to get that too. I adore lavender. Love to spray it on the sheets at night. DH doesn't care for it though so I can only do that on the nights when he falls asleep on the sofa (and if he is snoring, I'm NOT gonna wake him up).

    But bless him, he buys me lavender lotion and body and bath stuff.

    A nurse I know just recommended Aveeno with the dark blue top, or Eucerin.

    Oh & by the way, the 100% cocoa butter stick smells like chocolate! :sleepy3:

    I have been using Keri lotion (original formula) since I was 14 for a skin condition. I've been using it for so long it's become second nature to apply after my shower. I've never tried anything else that works as well for my particular condition. Some folks might not like it though as it's very thick.

    A close second for effectiveness is Jergens Ultra Healing Lotion. I use this on my hands and feet every night and it really stays on!
