this is my hg body moisturizer, without a doubt! i've used brands as cheap as suave to high-end brands such as moroccanoil body lotions. moroccanoil's moisturizer is amazing but not at the price it costs ($50!). this moisturizer works on my very dry skin all year round. we have summers that reach 105 degrees and winters that can reach -5 degrees, so i need a moisturizer that can keep my skin balanced and smooth. this is it! although i use it more sparingly in the summertime, i would recommend this product and hope neutrogena never discontinues it!

The ONLY OTC moisturizer I would buy. I have bad eczema and usually use only unscented soaps, lotions, etc, but even the scented type of this doesn't break me out. It is the only thing that I can use without itching due to allergy between showering (when I use virgin coconut oil) to keep skin supple.
Proud of my husband, because he is the one who bought it for me!

*The product I am reviewing is labeled as "Norwegian Formula Daily Body Moisturizer." I was unable to find a picture of my bottle online, but it has the same ingredients on the bottle as does the Moisture Wrap, so I assume that it is the same product and either is marketed differently in Canada or it has yet to change its appearance here. This is a review for the scented formula*

I picked up the large pump-bottle size of this lotion. It's a pretty standard plastic container, ingredients printed on the back, with a pump that can be swiveled around (although it doesn't swivel that easily). The pump does not have a lock-down feature for travel, so it is advisable to transfer some into another container. I have taken it with me in my gym bag however and only once had a bit of a leak. Sits nice and sturdy on the counter.
This is a thin to medium thickness lotion, milky white, and moderately fragranced. It spreads very easily and feels light on the skin. The fragrance isn't my favourite but I don't mind it - it has a distinct fragrance, and it can linger if applied liberally. I'm not quite sure what the fragrance is, maybe a bit floral? Does not bother my skin.
Overall the product works very well, but there are times when it doesn't quite perform as I'd like it to. It offers a lot of hydration so only a small amount is needed to sooth and smooth my skin, but if my skin is quite chapped then a more liberal application works best, or at least multiple applications in the day. When a small amount is applied it sinks in rather quickly and feels comfortable worn under clothing during the day without transferring to the clothes. It also doesn't leave my skin shiny or greasy, although I do prefer to rinse it off of my hands as I find that on this area it can feel a bit too heavy for my tastes. I originally bought this lotion when my hands began to crack and burn from the cold winter climate a few months ago and with regular use (perhaps a week or so) my hands were almost normal. For my hands I like to either apply a smaller amount and then rinse, or apply a liberal amount, wait a while, then wash it off. I especially like that method for overnight use with gloves, but will do it during the day if I have spare time. For areas with mild dryness I am able to use it just once a week or less without experiencing any obvious ashiness in between uses (I do not use body wash but I do exfoliate my arms and legs once a week with epsom salt). If my skin is quite dry and chapped, it does take up to a week with liberal application to get the skin healthy again, so for severe winter weather regular application on areas that tend to dry out easily is probably ideal even if the skin does not feel or look dry at that time.
Bang for your Buck:
I can't remember the exact cost but I believe it was around $10CAD, maybe a bit more, for the 449ml bottle. I'm not sure how much I've used but I've probably had it for at least 3 months now and the bottle still feels quite full. Used daily it would likely last anywhere from 4 to 6 months.
A very nice lotion for skin prone to dryness, but if you have severe dryness this may not be enough for you; in such cases I'd recommend it as a supplementary, upkeep lotion to be used when heavier creams are too much or the skin doesn't need as much hydration. Nice for winter use and I'm sure it would be light enough for summer use as well, although I don't find that my skin gets that dry during the summer; when the time comes I will update as to whether it works well for warmer seasons. Would recommend!

Very good product. It has a good balance of being heavy enough for harsh winter days yet light enough tha you don't feel all greasy. Not scented, which is perfect for my super sensitive skin. My favorite feature is the packaging. Good pump bottle so you don't make a mess.

I have very dry skin, and it itches insanely bad all year round, but especially in the cold weather. I have tried every lotion out there, even ones that claim to be for itchy dry skin, but very few have ever alleviated the itch. The ones that did required constant reapplication or only reduced the itch rather than taking it away. This lotion has finally cured it! The texture is great, midweight and absorbs easily, and it has a light fresh scent. It makes my skin soft and smooth even when I forget to apply it for a day. I haven't had itchy legs since I started using it a few weeks ago. This is now a must-have for me!

This is a quite nice body moisturizer, I like it overall. It doesn't have a strong scent, but it doesn't smell bad either. I used to use it daily after shower, and it moisturizes very well. I quit it because it doesn't go with my body sunscreen.

I love this lotion! I have gone through three tubes do far. This is a nice unscented lotion with colloidal oatmeal and really keeps skin nice and soft. I use it on myself and both of my children. I bought all three tubes at ones those grocery outlet stores so it was around $2 for each tube. Great buy for a great product!

I hated this lotion in winter. It was far too watery/thin to fix my dry skin.
However, now that it is warming up here in Missouri, it is a great everyday light-weight lotion that quickly absorbs.
It has little-to-no fragrance, which is nice for those with allergies.
I will definitely use it in the warm months.
For winter, I'll continue to stick with a thicker lotion, or just plain vaseline for the really dry areas.

I have naturally dry skin due to kidney issues and this works great. It is super moisturizing and I tend to use it after I get out of the shower - it really soaks when your pores are open from a shower!
Unfortunately I have a family history of cancer on both sides and because there are parabens in the ingredients I am hesitant. It IS nice that methylparaben is one of the last ingredients and compared to other drugstore lotions it has a lot less nasty stuff in the bottle than others.
While I love the lotion I'm still hopeful of finding a more natural lotion at a decent pricepoint. Until then this is my favorite drugstore brand for sure.

I've been using this lotion for about 3 weeks now, and it has done wonders on my dry, winter skin. I was getting some ashy areas on my legs (calf area in particular), probably due to shaving my legs daily. I had been using Aveeno Creamy Moisturizing Oil to attempt to get rid of the dryness on my calves. My legs laughed at that stuff. After I'd used one whole bottle, I still had those little dry areas on my calves. So after reading the description on the back of the Moisture Wrap tube, I figured I'd give it a shot. I am super glad I did, because this lotion works great for me! It has a slightly runny consistency, but rubs in and absorbs very quickly. It doesn't leave a greasy-feeling residue on your skin, which is an absolute must for any body lotion I use. I cannot stand a greasy feeling after applying lotion at all. I normally use Moisture Wrap right after I've gotten out of the shower and dried off, while my pores are still open from the warmth of the shower...this method works great for me, as it allows the lotion to really work into the layers of your skin.
The Moisture Wrap I purchased is not fragrance-free, but the scent is so light that it won't clash with perfume. This is a huge plus for me, because I love being able to use body lotion and still wear my favorite perfumes. I did notice that there is a fragrance-free formula, but I usually find that fragrance-free products have a weird smell (funny, huh?).
I feel like this is a great body lotion for the price, and I will most definitely repurchase once my current tube is empty.

For people with really dry skin BUY THIS LOTION!!!! I've tried everything under the sun to keep my hands from being dry. This lotion is awesome <3

This is a good moisturizer if you have dry skin. It has kind of a watery consistency, and I prefer creamier lotions. Still, it is a good, accessible product and hydrates thoroughly.
It lacks a scent, which may or may not be a good thing, depending on your preference.

I bought the version of the Soothing Wrap body lotion with oatmeal before I went on a trip far north and until now had not been able to find another bottle. I found it today and remembered why it was so great before. It moisturizes more deeply than most and you notice a difference within a week of daily or nightly use. I use this for night because it's heavier than my daytime lotion but it's totally worth it. Also, make sure to look for the formula with oatmeal, it makes all the difference.

I came across a travel size of the Neutrogena Body Wrap when I was at Nordstrom Rack for $1.49 and decided to give it a try. I have eczema and have had a lot of trouble lately with my dry skin since winter came around. I would usually apply my lotion from head to toe twice a day but it still wasn't cutting it for me. The NBW is great! I have used the Clarins body Cream as well as the Clinique Turnaround Body, and being that the NBW is only $9.97 compared to $30 and up for the other creams that work for me, I would absolutely recommend this! Buy it at the Rack, it might be cheaper.

This is fantastic. Right now Montreal is having a cold snap, which means very dry air, inside and outside, so I really need a long-lasting body moisturizer. This one absorbs very quickly, with no greasiness or tackiness, and the next day my skin is still soft and smooth. Really terrific product.

This would be perfect if it smelled better. It doesn't smell bad, but it smells sort of off, almost stale. Otherwise it moisturizes very well and really softens my skin.

I usually swear by Neutrogena lotions, but this one was a miss for me. It smells fantastic and does a really great job of moisturizing, but I find it stays oily on my skin for most of the day. I only use it at night now so the greasiness doesn't bother me.

I love everything about this lotion. The scent is so light and it absorbs in my skin instantly. I purchased this product at Target and it was in the clearance section for $2.30. After a couple of days of using this lotion, I went back to Target and purchased all that was left in the clearance section (5 total)! I will always repurchase.

this lotion is ridiculous. i have sahara desert skin on my legs; nothing has EVER worked. after my shower, i put about a quarter-sized amount on my legs and work it in. it absorbs super quickly and doesn't leave a greasy film at all. in about 5 minutes, my legs are completely smooth and soo soft! i even use this on my face and it does an amazing job without causing breakouts. i'm usually too lazy to lotion after my shower, but this absorbs so quickly, i never have to worry about getting it on my clothes!

Bought this product for those cold winter months. Bought it at Target and received a small travel sized tube. I leave the big tube at work and small one in my portable make up bag. I mostly use this for my hands. I didn't really pay much attention to my hands until 4-5 weeks after usage. I'm the kind of person that washes my hands constantly because I don't like the feel of hand sanitizer. My hands were always dry and cakey after washing and I MUST apply lotion after each wash. So after 4-5 weeks of using this lotion, I realized that my hands weren't as dry as they used to be after each hand wash. I don't always have to apply lotion on now but I still do since my hands are still moderately dry. I'm sure this product works well as a body lotion (which is what it's meant for) but since spring is here, the texture is too greasy for me to use in warmer weather.
