Can anyone recommend an all over body moisturiser that is quite thick but soaks in well.
Looking supermarket / boots prices grin

I've tried Palms and found it too greasey also Aldis lacura is to thin.

The Righteous Butter from Soap and Glory or L'Occitane Shea butter in pump dispenser!
These are both my favourites, luxurious, great for my dry, excema probe skin, but sink in quickly which is handy in the mornings!

Do you have a home bargains near you? Their own brand coconut body butter is lovely only 99p a tub and sinks into skin well with no greasiness hth smile

Not terribly glamorous but the Vaseline lotion in the white bottle is great and really moisturising

Fluffydressinggown Wed 03-Apr-13 21:16:55

Boots body butter from the Naturals range is great.

I like the Vaseline in the brown packaging.

SilkandSteel Wed 03-Apr-13 21:34:09

I second the vaseline in the shite bottle

SilkandSteel Wed 03-Apr-13 21:34:52

white bottle blush

Astral is good.

Aveeno Cream Oil is lush. Very moisturising but sinks in v quickly.

OneLittleLady Wed 03-Apr-13 21:59:09

Lush Dream Cream is good. Lasts for ages as well

AlwaysSleepingBeauty Wed 03-Apr-13 22:40:59

I love Dream Cream too.

Am so busy laughing at SilkandSteel that I can barely remember the purpose of thread!!grin

Organic Surge Bergamot body lotion is lovely. Works a treat on my dry skin but sinks in quickly.

rituals stuff is great costs £££ but worth it

Graceparkhill Wed 03-Apr-13 23:46:29

Have you thought about a body oil? Neutrogena do a lovely one.

Double base. Prescribed for eczema for my dc, it is the best moisturiser I've ever come across. It has sorted my horrid dry knees from kneeling all the time with the kids. I use all the time now.
Costs £10 something OTC at pharmacy for big pump action bottle.

I love Aveeno. Sinks in fast and leaves skin very soft. Hand cream great too. Quite cheap too- is on offer at mo in Boots.
Has done wonders for my ds's excema too. Much better than anything GP prescribed smile

La Roche Posay - a tenner well spent imo.

StepAwayFromTheEcclesCakes Thu 04-Apr-13 15:52:39

my absolute fave is the garnier intensive 7 days stuff in the green bottle. cheap enough and leaves me all smooth and silky even DH noticed.

IJustWoreMyTrenchcoat Thu 04-Apr-13 17:55:14

I used to use this Dove and bought a pot recently. It was one of the few body creams that didn't make me all sticky which is my pet hate. 1/2 price in Superdrug now, I usually buy from Bodycare.

spottymoo Thu 04-Apr-13 20:10:00

Lots of lovely recommendations thank you all I'm off to the shops tomorrow to see what I can get grin

HollaAtMeBaby Thu 04-Apr-13 20:31:36

I really like Superdrug's own brand vitamin E body cream - absolute bargain at £2.99 and even more so when it's on offer like now!

PeachTown Fri 05-Apr-13 09:06:37

Nivea Soft?

spottymoo Fri 12-Apr-13 13:23:47

i got the vaseline intenseive body moisturiser so far so good and it soaks in really well and it was half price at morrisons for £1.49 smile
