It's that time of the year again when the furnace gets turned up and I take hotter showers to stay warm. This of course provides me with dry skin! I know I'm not alone. Everyone seems to complain about it and my hand lotion on my desk at work seems to need replaced more frequently at this time of year.
I don't know about all of you but I am picky about the lotion that I use.
When I put lotion on myself I don't want it to feel greasy or oily. So many of them advertise that they are non-greasy but then I find it's just not the case.
I also don't feel like it if it leaves a thick film on my hands or body like I'm wearing a glove.
Applying it every half an hour because I'm dry again is not my idea of a good lotion.
Heavily scented lotions aren't my thing either. Although I love some of the frangrances at Bath and Body Works, I can't stand to smell them all day long. It actually makes me a little nausious and messes with my sinuses.
So as you can see, finding a lotion that I like is hard for me.
I've been using Vaseline Total Moisture Dry Skin Lotion for years. It works and I like it but this year I bought a couple of different ones to try. I had some coupons for them and KMart was doing their double coupon thing up to $2.00 so I figured this was a good time to try some new ones. I bought two. One hand and one body and did I luck out! I love them both. A lot!
The hand lotion I bought was Nivea Smooth Indulgence Hand Cream. It took a couple of applications for it to absorb into my hands because they were really dry. Our soap at work has strong anti-bacterial stuff in it and your hands are dry immediately after you wash them. This hand cream is a blessing. Not greasy. Not oily. Not stinky!
The body lotion is prescription strength without a prescription. It is Vaseline Clinical Therapy. It's available in unfragranced or lightly fragrance. I have the lightly frangranced one because I didn't know until I started to write this post that they had it in unfragranced. They are right. It has a really light scent to it and it's a nice one. This is the second day I used it after a hot shower and it lasted all day! Really! I'm telling you the truth and I'm not greasy, oily or sticky!I love it!
