Default Body lotion?

I'm on some new medication and one of the (odd) results is dry skin. My face cream is fine but I need better body lotion

Anybody have a favorite?

On the bright side and kind of deserving of it's own thread I haven't had a seizure in almost a month (previously my record was a week) cutting out caffeine + this new med seems to be working well!

I really like my St Ives lotion. I wash my hands a tooooooon at work and they get really dry and scaly lol but I've had success with this lotion.

And yay seizure - free month!
And if all of it is for naught, well at least I took a shot

I've actually been reading that olive oil is excellent for dry skin!

Another awesome natural thing is coconut oil. I use it mostly for my hair, but my skin loves it too!

And yay one month seizure free!

I like the ones from bath and body works. I have really sensitive skin and I haven't had a product from there irritate my skin yet (knock on wood).

I really like Aveeno. When I was working at the daycare and washing my hands a billion times a day, I was surprised at how well it worked. My face also gets very dry/chapped during the winter, and it helped that without making my skin too oily.

Shea butter, Shea butter and more Shea butter. Even works wonders on my eczema. Love the stuff.

I tend to need actual lotion (water and oil emulsified) versus oil/butter when my skin is really dry but if you use a good butter or oil it will work better if you put it on fresh from the bath or shower. I have been LOVING my goat milk lotion or lotion with aloe as the base (really like when it has tallow as an ingredient too but that is not vegetarian of course and many big brands dont use that). I am not sure of brands you could get a hold of though that would fit.

I mix coconut oil with almost any thick body cream and slather it on while my skin is still damp after a shower. I use a lighter lotion like the ones you can get from bath and body works for moisturizing and scent refreshing in between showers.

Aveeno makes a skin calming lotion that I originally bought for my face but will put over my entire body when my skin is giving me trouble.
