All those doing the dishes and washing the clothes has made my hands really dry. If only I could shift into a hotel, I would never move out. Ever. My elbows are also rough from that habit of resting my elbows on the table. My face is very oily, there are days when I feel the oil will start dripping in sometime. Luckily, it has not happened, yet. I own non-oily stuff mostly so, have been looking for some lotion or crème which would solve my problem. I tried Nivea Soft Cream. It worked well but I was looking for something which would last me all day. Hence, I bought this lotion from Violetbag.com .
What it claims:
Made with a blend of C, E and B5, this fast-absorbing body lotion goes deep beneath skin's surface to lock in moisture and heal dryness at the source, preventing its unwelcome return.
- Penetrates through 5 layers of skin's surface to start healing at the source
- Helps heal extra dry skin—including heels, elbows and knees
- Triples skin's moisture content with continued use
- Provides 24-hour relief
Use Jergens® Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer with Jergens® Overnight Repair Nightly Restoring Moisturizer for 3x smoother, softer skin.
What it did:
It’s meant for dry skin so it is on the heavier side. I don’t have dry skin so I only used it on my hands. The claim of lasting 24 hour must be true because my hands were moisturized even after I washed my hands. Now, it is not fast-absorbing for me, I have to work it into the skin. My hands start looking like they belong to somebody civilized (Almost!) after using this.
To sum it up, I love the effect it has on my dry hands. I think you’ll love it if you have dry or very dry skin. This is one of the things that will see you though the winter without that itchy and dry skin. If you don’t need something heavy, you can also try the Jergens Original Scent Dry Skin moisturizer.

- Extremely moisturizing.
- Doesn’t get washed away by water.
- A very good quantity given the price.
- Ideal for rough elbows and knees.
- It contains paraben and alcohol. Personally, I don’t like either.
- I think it can be used only in winters as it is a bit too heavy for summer.
My Rating: 9.2/10
