Lotions / creams / balms

Winter skin is dry. I swear by Kiehl’s Creme de Corps. Eucerin products suck.

by Anonymousreply 3401/11/2021

Eucerin products always make me feel like I'm applying to my skin that paste we used in kindergarten (and sometimes ate)

by Anonymousreply 101/09/2021

I use coconut oil and some cold pressed vegetable oils. I can't do it every day because its difficult to wear clothes for a few hours. Commercial body cremes with urea are good.

I'm using Curel Itch Defense, and it's not cutting it. I'm trying Gold Bond next.

Cetaphil lotions and creams are wonderful.

Kiehl's Creme de Corps is the best body lotion I've ever used. I swear by it.

I discovered Vanicream and it’s the first winter my fingers haven’t cracked and peeled. Eucerin, Lubriderm, coconut oil, lanolin, nothing worked until now.

I love the vanicream facial moisturizer, lightweight, noncomedogenic and very moisturizing. Great for my sensitive skin and cheap at $12 a tube.

Vaseline petroleum jelly works for me.

The blood of my enemies does wonders for my skin. Sometimes I add aloe vera when the days are especially dry.

I use cheap Nivea drugstore "soothing post shave balm" love it. I use it liberally all over my face, forehead, and neck. It doesn't burn my sensitive skin. I'm old as fuck (59) I have soft crows feet, and fine lines on my forehead, that's it. No, I'm not going to say I look way younger, the grey hair tells my age.

I wish we could all witness the loveliness that these treatments have wrought for you bitches, so that we could bask in the reflected glory.

I like the smell of Nivea, r10, but it never seems to sink into my skin.

by Anonymousreply 1201/09/2021

Aveeno intense relief. Only thing that works

by Anonymousreply 1301/09/2021

CeraVe face lotion with spf 30 is great

by Anonymousreply 1401/09/2021

I like Gold Bond.

What about our elder feet? Our elder, cracked and dry feet?

by Anonymousreply 1601/09/2021

No r16. Use lotion.

Anyone use hyaluronic acid?

I smear Krispey Kremes over my face and hair.

Weleda Skin Food. And tbh, on very cold, bitterly windy winter days, the kind that hurt your lungs to breathe and make the tears freeze on your eyelashes? Straight the fuck up Vaseline on my face because it's the only thing that stops the skin getting chapped raw. Why do I live here.

I had this old La Mer shit which I was always thought was overpriced. I am talking 8 years old. I am now using it, and dig it. I believe it long expired, but who gives a shit. It has the most basic ingredients of any moisturizer. Its such a scam, But right now, it feels good.

by Anonymousreply 2301/09/2021

R22- Very nice. Awesome stuff. Weleda's Skin Food is probably the best deal going if you live in a cold climate, like we do. Mine is almost out

I've been having winter skin issues for years. This year is different -I switch soaps. I used to use an all-natural glycerin-based soap that I thought was good for my skin, but things have been so much better since I switched to a pine tar soap from Dr. Squatch. I gather pine tar is supposed to be good for irritated skin. Like the previous posters, I had tried every kind of lotion and cream I could find. Still had such itchy skin that I was scratching until I bled. I seriously recommend you try changing soaps.

CeraVe is my moisturizer of choice.

CeraVe is my skin moisturizer of choice. My dermatologist recommended it a couple of years ago. Love it.

Itchy back in winter? Buy TONE soap. No more itch. No need for cream.

Hands cracked and chapped -- try Cornhuskers lotion. Works for me. Cheap.

Tone soap

Does Tone have a gel? You must know we don't allow bar soaps.

by Anonymousreply 3101/10/2021

I buy the generic lotion at CVS.

by Anonymousreply 3201/11/2021

I’m 54, and have never been taken in by marketing. I use cheap Q10 moisturiser from Lidl for my face. It does its job well, and I am often complimented on my skin. I don’t believe in paying more for fancy packaging and pseudoscience. For my body I use Vaseline Intensive Care. It works for me.

Nivea in the bucket works for everything.
