General chatter - Favorite Lotion
06-29-2010, 02:33 PM
I am a lotion freak. I love lotion. Hand lotion, foot lotion, body lotion, bronzing lotion. You name it and I love it. I'm curious as to what some of your favorites are.
Please share, I feel a shopping trip coming on. :dancer:

Very Emollient Body Lotion by Alba Botanica. It is very moisturizing and doesn't have the harmful chemicals (e.g., paraben) that other lotions have. I highly recommend it.

Last time I bought lotion I got Eucerin Dry Skin Therapy plus Smoothing Essentials. It is great and fragrance free and doesn't have that awful smell that most unscented lotions and body products has. My legs are horribly dry, but not any more after this stuff. I can only buy it when I'm in the US so I will be stocking up in September when I go back down to visit the man.

I'm a Bath & Body Works junkie:) My "signature" scent is Moonlight Path. I bathe in the shower gel....moisturize with the body lotion....and smell pretty with the body splash;) In the Winter months, I use the triple moisture body cream.
Some of my other favorites are their Japanese Cherry Blossom, Sea Island Cotton, Black Amethyst, Warm Vanilla Sugar.

I love body lotion of any kind, but I'm a student, so I can't justify spending too much on it :)
I like Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom. I use it at night on my hands :)
By the way, I found another reason for using lots of body lotion:
I started getting lotion with SPF. I'm pretty pale, and it's saved me a couple of times before when hanging out in the sun (other people got red and/or burned :( , but I didn't)

"Look Ma No Hands" Lotion at B&B Works...Awesome!!

I love love love the Gold Bond Ultimate Healing lotion. It's great for those dry patches of skin around your ankles and elbows and it makes your hands SO saft. I also like the Nivea Smooth Sensations lotion, too. I used to love the Tone mango lotion but I can't find it anymore. :(

H20 Hand and Nail cream has changed mani/pedis for me...forever! Hands down the best hand cream I've tried. Their body balm is nice too...non greasy, very moisturizing.
Right now I'm hooked on "White Citrus" scent from Bath and Body, so that's what I'm using.

i just love Palmers Body Gloss!

Sephora's body butters are my current favs. Right now I'm alternating between Pink Grapefruit Sorbet (light and citrus-y for daytime) and Vanilla Cupcake, for those times that I want to smell like a delicious cookie. :)

I just use plain old E45 for my neck down. I have a whole bunch of body butters and nice smelly lotions, but I only really use them overnight on feet and stuff, since I find they don't absorb very well on my legs etc.

I use Hempz lotion. I have the cucumber scent because it's DH's favorite, and the pomegranate scent when I want something different, but my favorite is the original scent. None of them are overpoweringly smelly, which I love. My "signature" scent is shampoo and I love it that way lol.

I'm a lotion junkie, too, and have it stashed everywhere, including my car and handbag.
My favorites are Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Lotion and Lush's Dream Cream.

Hands down Vaseline Cocoa Butter. I also enjoy Jergens Natural Glow in the Summertime and when I go out the glow it gives my skin is amazing.

Surgeon's Skin Secret. I use the beeswax sticks but it also comes in tubes. Variety of scents, lavender, vanilla, lemon, mint, almond ...
I have a crazy fragrance/preservative allergies (even to natural scents)so I have to be super careful with lotions.
Which makes me sad as I love them.
When I'm in Mississippi, I use this stuff made by a local family who makes organic soaps/shampoos/lip balms/etc and sells at farmer's markets. They will make me things that are completely fragrance free and I love them.
When I'm in Alaska, they're products aren't hardcore enough to manage the super dry skin I get up there. So when I'm there I'll use Gold Bond Ultimate Skin Therapy Aloe and just plain old vaseline for my feet/elbow cracks.

Va Va Vanilla hand cream from ULTA. I keep a 3 oz tube in my purse at all times!
Also, any of the body butters from The Body Shop. Mango smells delicious! I want to eat it.
And body butters from Lush. Specifically Buffy and Schnuggle. <333
But a lot of the time in the summer I use a dusting powder instead of lotion because it is too hot down here and gets all slimy. :(

I loveeeeee the rose water lotion from crab tree and evelyn! i used to like bath and body work lotions a whole lot too, but the scent is too strong to use at my work (where i share a small office with someone else), it bothers other people sometimes!

I went into bath and body works and did the sniff test on a bunch of stuff. The best smelling one there currently I would say is the Summer vanilla's collection ; vanilla lemon. It smells like a lemon meringue pie! So yummy. (Their stuff makes my skin irritated so I left empty handed anyways lol). I like victorias secret lotions; endless love smells like pixie sticks.

Moonalisa Potion Lotion (Etsy)
Lush Coco Lotion or Crème Anglaise
AHAVA - Mineral Body Lotion

My skin is very sensitive to fragrance so I have to look for quality rather than scent. In the summer I use (seed) Simply Unscented and in winter I use North American Hemp Co. Holy Grail unscented lotion and Au Naturel unscented body oil.

My favorites are Cherry Blossom, Twilight Woods, Sweet Pea, Warm Vanilla Sugar, and Butterfly Flower. I got all of those from Bath & Body Works (I looove that store!)

I'm a big fan of anything LUSH. But right now I've got some from Gilly Hicks that are really nice too. Sating Bellow, Apple Orchard, and Silver Shell
