I always have and always will use Bath and Body Works. I think it is the best.

I’ve been using jojoba oil for about a year and I love it.  I put lotion or a thicker oil over top after.  For lotions, I like aveeno and I just got the unscented one from Rocky Mountain Soap Company.  I was also stupid and bought the Vaseline cocoa lotion.  For my skin it was great.  For my eyes and breathing it was horrible.

@MsGinkgo:  Use an oil first.  Just be careful about which one if you’re prone to breaking out from them, and be careful about where you use it.  Wiping off the excess with a tissue also helps.

@AB Bride:  +1 for jojoba oil. I use that on my face, and it is heavenly. One little drop goes a long way.

For body lotion I use Jergens. I’ve always liked the brand, and it keeps my skin from drying out.

I use a lotion from Bath &  Body Work’s True Blue Spa collection called “Lay it on thick”. It’s amazing!

You could try coconut oil.  I have a jar in the shower and I will put it on in there and it works really well.  Then almost any lotion after that would be fine.  At least it is for me, my skin gets drier in the winter but it’s not super extreme.  I have Yes to Carrots body lotion I think.  But the coconut oil is pretty awesome, and it’s not really greasy, especially if you do it in the shower.  Not sure as far as breaking out, I don’t get much in the way of break outs.

I’m pregnant so I’m currently using it on my tummy and hips in the shower then I do another oil there after I get out and lotion everywhere else.  No real itchiness so far.

@MsGinkgo:  You should just be able to get it at the grocery store.  I would try the organic section, I definitely see it there.  It’s used for cooking too so it’s usually not with the body care stuff.

@MsGinkgo:  Most supplement stores have it.  I’ve also seen it in superstore (Loblaws) in the organic section.

@MsGinkgo:  I had recent random excema so I did research and bought Dream Cream from Lush. It’s been really great so far and is all natural

Cetaphil body lotion or cream is amazing. It’s the only thing that makes my winter skin manageable!

Under “normal” conditions I like to use Dove “Summer Glow” (for a bit of colour too)

BUT in the worst weather… be it the Heat of Summer… or the Cold of Winter

I am a fan of Body Butter… either from The Body Shop OR Bath & Body Works

I particularly like The Body Shop’s Line in the Winter… the scents always make me think of “suntan lotion” and exotic destinations in warmer climates

The Body Shop = http://www.thebodyshop.ca/en/bath-body-care/body-moisturisers/body-butter.aspx#/body-butter.aspx

Bath & Body Works = http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=4191847&cm_sp=FO-_-Body+%26+Bath-_-Body+Butter&cp=12586965.12587140′ defer=’defer

The Bath & Body Works ones have different scents… fun to try something new now and then.

Hope this helps,
