Palmers Cocoa Butter. Excellent.

Nivea Soft. I think it's the most wonderful smelling stuff! Use expensive stuff on my face (Clarins, Dermalogica, Liz Earle) but can't find anything to beat this stuff for my body. Even use it on my face if I've run out of my expensive stuff and find it's pretty good for that too. smile

Sunolive oil slathered all over whilst still wet from the bath/shower then toweled off.

Cheap and no nasties. Skin is very hydrated/nourished.

I bung in a bit of almond flavouring and vanilla extract too for nice smell.

Vaseline intensive care, rubs in easy, cheap, can buy from anywhere, and feels ans smells great on skin

Jergens has a lovely smell (to me) and is quick to sink into the skin.

I use aldis body lotion in the blue bottle with the White cap as it has no mineral oil in it and it doesn't have a scent.

I thought it might be too thin but it wasn't.

Soap and Glory Body Butter Lotion. It smells really nice and isn't as heavy/greasy as others I have tried. It makes my skin look great even if I do say so myself!.

Garnier hydralock which has 5 pct urea (it actually does work to moisturise) or Eucerin 10 pct. Or e45 or sometimes shower with almond oil.

Fluffycloudland77 Sun 10-Jul-11 20:53:57

Puddlejumper the aldi cream might be cheaper, aqueous is a soap substitute we are not allowed to advise patients to use it as a cream anymore but loads of gp's do cos it's cheap.

It's mainly sodium laurel sulphate but lots of patients did get on with it really well as a cream, esp for the legs.

well I bought some Body Butter from Body Shop and I do like it- its v v moisturising

But it isnt the cheapest unless you get it on a 3 for 2

Dove for normal skin, in the dark red bottle. Contains AHAs and leaves my skin really soft, no more post-shave bumps.

Also love Weleda sea buckthorn oil, but it's pricier, so not my everyday choice.

Garnier- the red one. It contains maple sap and is just fab for dry skin. I never itch during the day which I used to with everything else I tried!

HazeltheMcWitch Sun 10-Jul-11 22:42:44

After much research, my absolute favourite one - which shockingly for me, I am now loyal to - is E45 Endless Moisture Body Lotion. It's in a pump action bottle, which somehow makes me 3x more likely to actually use it, it goes on easily, sinks in quick, and is amazingly moisturising. It is frag free, which I prefer as I an 34 and don't want to smell like a fruit, or of cheap cloying fragrance.

Dark And Lovely. It's brilliant, the only thing to keep my very dry skin looking decent!

valiumredhead Mon 11-Jul-11 13:39:44

Usually chop and change every couple of weeks when a bottle runs out but atm I am using a big tub of Sanctuary souffle and I am very impressed! Boots has a deal on atm too - really good free gift!

MooMooFarm Mon 11-Jul-11 13:42:55

Body shop body butter - I buy whatever 'flavours' are on offer on their website - they're all yummy.

Are you anywhere near a Costco clever? You can buy 3 big tubes(like the sort you get in Boots) for £4.99 there!

jbg Mon 11-Jul-11 14:37:05

I'm currently using an Aldi one in their Biocura range, for normal skin. Its good, very moisturising, the smell is ok and is really cheap.

SchrodingersMew Mon 11-Jul-11 14:38:30

Chanel moisture spray.

Bit expensive but it brilliant imo.

HappyAsIAm Mon 11-Jul-11 14:45:51

Jergens is really nice - it was on 3 for 2 when I was last in Waitrose. Its about a fiver a tube (but the tube is a good size).

If you can stretch to it, i think the Clinique one in a yellow tube (body comfort, maybe) is absolutely brilliant and I use that as often as I remember.

Puddlejumper I used aqueous for years and loved it but it was all over the news recently that long term constant use is proven to thin the skin. I stopped using it but I do miss it and often wish I'd never heard that. Ignorance is bliss.
