Mmmmmm. That sounds like it smells wonderful.

I'm hooked on The Body Shop's Satsuma. That stuff is outta this world!

My current fav is Bath & Body works Moonlight path body cream.

05-22-2007, 07:16 AM
I like... Bath and Body works products! they smell yummmmmmy.

I'm a lotion junkie.... I love 'em all. my favorite *intense* skin cream right now is Baby Bee balm. (Burt's bees I think?) it is so good on my dry itchy skin....especially the hands and feet.

I'll have to check out your favorite site!

My favorite is Weleda Skin Food. I think all Weleda products are my favorite. Their baby stuff is great.

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream for me (or good old bag balm). I like the really thick stuff, preferably unscented, but I haven't found a thick hand cream that is unscented yet.

05-22-2007, 07:37 PM
Ditto what Joe said. I tend to like unscented stuff. I'll use any lotion that doesn't smell too femenine, like lavendar, vanilla, etc.

:heart:my favorite hand lotion is the 'spa' lotion , shea butter and vitamen e, from bath & body works. its nice and thick and creamy, no scent except the natural scent. it kinda smells like a vanilla cupcake from the shea butter. mmmm. i also like the body butters rom body shop. i think i have like 5 or 6 scents...satsuma(smells like a tangerine), strawberry, coconut, vanilla spice...a couple other i can't remember:??

My fav is Victoria Secret's body butter in various scents. It makes my hands and everywhere else soft.

I love the Dead Sea salt lotion from "Seacret Spa". They're a little more expensive, but it is the best lotion I've ever tried--even better than medicated stuff! I can put it on once in the morning, wash my hands all throughout the day, and my hands will still be soft and moisturised at the end of the day. :)

05-23-2007, 01:22 PM
I love the Bath and Body Works Winter Candy Apple and Coconut Lime Verbena

05-23-2007, 07:10 PM
I'm another Bath & Body Works fan - especially Black Currant Vanilla, Peony, Honeysuckle, Coconut Lime Verbena, and Cherry Blossom!

I'm a research technician, so I have to wear gloves and wash my hands a lot. Bag Balm is great for an overnight soak when my hands get really dry. (We also have some barrier lotion in the lab, but it smells really funky!)

I like Avon's hand lotion.

05-25-2007, 10:29 AM
The Baby Bee stuff is awesome. I also use the Burt's Bees hand salve.

And Cetaphil.

My hands seem to get really dry these days.

@the moment--Jergen's Original Scent--I just love the smell and its not greasy in the summer. I do love Bath and Body products.

05-26-2007, 10:01 PM
Gloves in a Bottle is my fave - it's not at all greasy

05-26-2007, 10:04 PM
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream for me (or good old bag balm). I like the really thick stuff, preferably unscented, but I haven't found a thick hand cream that is unscented yet.

I came on here to say that same lotion, it's amazing! Especially when I'm knitting, I don't want the scented stuff all over the yarn.

but when I wear lotion to smell nice, I love Bath and Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom, or the Body Shops unscented, then I add patchoulii oil.

I like Lydia Marie's body butter too. I got some for the winter when my legs get so awfuly dry and itchy from the cold. I was using it on my feet too at night, and it actually made a scar fade on my big toe. One of the girls at work uses LM body butter too, and she said it also made a scar on her knee fade. The Strawberries and Champagne smells just like Victoria's Secret...mmmm!! Good stuff! :lol:

05-28-2007, 10:27 PM
i make lotion, soap and lip balm too. her ingredients look like she makes top notch products. tangerine spice, yum!

05-28-2007, 10:52 PM
I like Ahava or Neutrogena. Neither is scented

05-29-2007, 09:33 PM
i make lotion, soap and lip balm too. her ingredients look like she makes top notch products. tangerine spice, yum!
that sounds so fun! the closest i ever got to doing that was have the body shop add gardenia and pink pepper oil to thier base (unfragranced) lotion, and i did the same at home with another bottle of thier lotion with peach fragrance oil.. yummmm!

My fave lotion is one I make myself with monoi and emu oils. Mmmmmm! Commercially, I like good ol Lubriderm.

05-30-2007, 09:53 AM
i'll bet yours is tdf, silver. i loves me some monoi! i use it in lip balm too. <3

05-30-2007, 11:03 AM
You know it dakatz! Just like your lip balm must be tdf. Hey my monoi and emu oils are both from Dish co-ops. When you don't sell your stuff, your stash lasts a loooong time. lol Man, I haven't made soap in almost 2 years!

05-30-2007, 04:51 PM
My favorite is by L'Occotane. I love their products as they don't feel greasy and their foot cream is the best!

05-31-2007, 02:57 PM
I love Lemon grass and Ginger from Marks and Spencer, its one of the few hand creams that don't leave my hands sticky and slippery.

05-31-2007, 03:03 PM
Chocolate Swirl from Ulta is the best...I always stock up when it goes on sale, and it's also available in shower gel. Whenever I use it, people think I am baking brownies!



05-31-2007, 03:04 PM
I can't stand having dry hands.
I love Udderly Smooth. I keep a tube in my knitting bag and one on my nightstand. I also like Jergen's Original Scent. I have to stay away from highly scented lotions, they seem to dry out my hands more.

05-31-2007, 03:19 PM
I like Ahava or Neutrogena. Neither is scented

Ooooooooh, that Ahava lotion is incredible!! It's really thick without being sticky, and no icky sweet fragrance. Mmmmm, definitely my favorite!

05-31-2007, 03:24 PM
my favorites (they both say 'body' but i use them mostly on my hands) are

Kiehl's Deluxe Hand and Body Lotion (http://www.kiehls.com/_us/_en/body/deluxe-hand-and-body-lotion-with-aloe-vera-and-oatmeal.htm)
