  • My son has severely dry skin and patches of eczema. I've been using Lubriderm Advanced Therapy Lotion. It has worked wonders on his skin. I can no longer feel the patches of eczema and his skin is so much softer.

  • Vaseline has a cocoa butter gel body oil, that i buy at walmart for like $5 a bottle, its thicker than regular baby oil. so i wont feel greasy or slimy but stay moisturized, is i mix a little in my hand with my favorite lotion, ive mixed it with my victoria secret, to my cheap brand that doesnt work to well on its own. It compliments every lotion ive added it to, seriously! please try, let me know what you think. a little goes a long way with this product just put a dime sizee amount in your hands, add your normal everyday lotion and mix it around in your palms, youll instantly feel the difference, safe for all over your body (even the sensitive parts, yes ive used it instead of lube and no harmful effects surfaced)

  • I use St. Ives too. It is a good lotion. I use the Renewing type.

  • Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion, but you can buy store brand versions of it. I use the Wal-Mart, Equate brand. I use it for my daughter and my skin as well. It works wonderfully!

  • For me I like Cocoa Butter, my DD has more sensitive skin and for her we use Cetaphil. Both are more of a cream than a lotion so they are thicker and seem to hydrate the skin better.

  • i have excema and dry skin and eucerin is the BEST out there. get the walmart cheapo brand, same ingredients! get the cream, not the lotion, its thicker and lasts longer!!!
