What type of lotion and soap do you use?

What do you use to lighten dark spots?

I usually use Dove. For lotion I use Dove or Jergens. Prior to those, I tried several lotions and nothing seems to give me that feeling Im looking for.

For spot removal Ive tried Ambi, Aveeno, Skin Success, Tropiclear, Nadinola and other products ive tred in the beauty supply store. And they either do not work or have caused break outs.

I've used noxzema and witch hazel twice a day on my face since middle school and I'm 38 now.

Pure cocoa butter for spots.

Soaps ......Dove ( sensitive or the new one with shea butter ) or Dial gold antibacterial

Lotion....suave cocoa /shea butter on legs, arms and general body and eucerin for extremely dry skin -feet and elbows. I normally mix in my lotion the baby oil gel to really combat dry skin everywhere on my body.

I've tried mk, cetaphil and other products but noxzema works for me.

I wash with L'Oreal Go 360 and use some Walgreen's knock-off moisturizer, but only in the winter. As far as dark spots go...I've got freckles!

For my face, I use Oil of Olay foaming cleanser for sensitive skin . . Followed by witch hazel and a thin layer of vaseline . .

For the rest of my body, I use suave shower gels . . And Jergens Daily Moisture lotion . . I sometimes mix in a little vaseline if my skin is extremely dry, but overall this lotions moisturizes really well without that greasy feeling afterwards . .

I don't use anything except moisturizer with sunscreen. I learned later in life that the less products I use the better off my skin is.
