This stuff is awesome for dehydrated legs! It does feel greasy at first, but once this dries it doesn't feel greasy at all. It just feels like you have super soft skin. Great for dry feet too. Recommended for people with very dry skin.
I have really dry legs and elbows, so I figured this thick cream would stick to my skin all day. It does do that, but it's too greasy, and I hate putting on my pants in the morning or sliding into bed at night when I have this cream on my legs. Plus, I have to make sure I dry my legs after a shower, otherwise this cream does not spread. It moisturizes really well, though, and I like that it's fragrance free, so I will use up the tub, but I will keep searching for another product.
I actually don't have dry skin, so I don't need to really use this for my skin. However, this stuff is great for removing waterproof mascara! It has mineral oil it in which softens the mascara. After I wipe it off I rinse around my eyes with baby shampoo to get rid of residue. Works like a charm! Love it!
sheesh... why does it take me so long to review my absolute friggin neccessities? i have seasonal allergies that show up in my skin, causing me to drop everything i'm using currently and switch to baby/kid stuff until my irritation is over. i've been using fragrance free lubriderm... w/ eucerin over my dry patches, as eye cream, and on my lips for almost a decade. it's hypoallergenic, it seals moisture in effectively, it doesn't break me out no matter where i use it, it's cheap, and it doesn't have a scent. i'd buy it again... as i'd NEVER be w/o a jar of this stuff.
This cream is very good for dry skin, especially in the winter. It is hard to rub in but thats because its so thick which is good for dry, flaky skin.
this stuff is the only thing that helps with my kids dry skin. works great and i also use it on my elbows and knees. I don't like the tub though, its kinda unsanitary. i will definetly get the tube next time.
Texture/formula can be a bit scary at first, super thick gooey cross between crisco and marshmallow packaged in a big industrial tub; needless to say the first impression was doubt. A few months later my tub has huge dips in it and I have little to-go sample post of it all over my house, in my gym bag, and in my makeup bag. This is the ultimate multipurpose cream. I use it as lip moisturizer, bland night cream, on my feet with socks, as a spa treatment in the sauna. I actually like a small amount under makeup or blended with MMU for a dewy natural face.
For reference, my skin is super sensitive and clog prone, broke out in tiny whiteheads from aquaphor but haven't had any problems with this at all with regular use over a few months.
I can't believe after reading the first page of reviews, no one has mentioned how great this stuff is for feet! After moving to the desert and being on my feet a ton, my heels cracked, and my feet even cracked on the side near my little toe, something I'd never seen before. After a few treatments of this, my lava rock pumice, and white cotton socks, the cracks were healed. I also use it on hands/cuticles, elbows, feet, legs after shaving, and lips in a pinch.
Also, this review refers to the generic version from Walmart.
This is certainly nothing fancy-- just petroleum-based oils in a water base-- but it has truly worked miracles on my cracked fingertips and palms this winter. I got it as a sample at the doctor's office when even rich lotions weren't doing the trick. I have never seen a product literally heal cracks within hours. Yes, it does feel a tad greasy, but not as bad as Aquaphor (which is still the best for diaper rash and chapped lips). The smell ain't pretty, but it's not awful, and I'm just happy my hands don't bleed anymore!
Ugh. I HATE this stuff. At least for my face. It's SO thick and greasy, and I almost died of the burn when it got into my eyes. It also made my face extremely hot and irritated. Definitely not for me!!!
