**Update: After further use of this lotion, I am updating. While I still think this is a very good lotion for dry skin, I have started to noticed some redness in some areas of my skin. Not all over, but still noticeable. It may be the olive fruit extract, and I think Curel puts this in many of their lotions. I don't do well with straight olive oil on my skin, causes redness, so I suspect this is the culprit. It is way down on the ingredient list so I thought it would not be a real factor, but it probably is. I'll discontinue use and try my cocoa butter lotion, which has been good for winter skin in the past. **
So far so good with this body lotion. I have extremely dry skin that does get itchy in places and with cooler weather coming on, I know I will need even more help. I'm picky about body lotion. This one is fragrance free, is not sticky like the Curel Rough Skin Rescue; it feels very smooth when you apply it and it makes my skin soft and comfortable- and no itching. I do not suffer from eczema, so I cannot attest to that, but I will say I have been more pleased with this than with any other lotion I have tried in a long time. As compared to others, it is (for me) more moisturizing than Jergen's Ultra Healing, Lubriderm, Cetaphil, Eucerin, or Nivea. I have not had any allergic reactions to this, nor have I had to reapply all day and I cannot say that for other lotions. It has a pump dispenser, and the price on this is around $6 at Walmart for a 13 oz bottle, which works for me. Comfortable skin is a must and this one is doing a great job.
