Hi folks, MIL has requested a luxury body cream/moisturiser for her birthday. She had radiotherapy at the end of last year and reacted badly - sore skin.

Any ideas for non-scented but luxurious moisturising lotion ( for body not face)

Aveeno is not luxury but it is very good for sore skin

A lot of Clinique products are fragrance free. I had a lovely body cream from there a few years ago and it was great. I have very sensitive allergic skin and it was ok for me. It was in a yellow tin i think? Will try and find it.

Yellow tub not tin. Autocorrect fail! It is a lovely chunky luxurious container and the cream and a beautiful rich yet light texture.

I would steer away from anything containing petroleum products, which is the vast majority of them.

Burts bees are beeswax based, and have some lovely non scentend stuff. Neals yard is olive oil based and have a therapeutic range too, of there's a shop nearby go and have a chat.

There's also good old lanisoh, which is wool oil based. Maybe not as "luxurious", but still a great product.

Thanks all, will investigate.

Moogoo Skin Milk Udder Cream was formulated for use post-radiotherapy, I believe. It's great - very moisturising and natural ingredients.

I was just coming on to suggest Udder Cream, so I second QueenJulian. It made a world of difference to me during radiotherapy/chemo/surgery/other fun stuff it was the only thing which soothed my skin. I use the Udderly Smooth brand which you can get from Amazon.

You're welcome smile. I think you can get some udder cream brands in pretty/fun fine too.
