    Default What's your fave moisturizer/lotion for dry winter skin?

    The skin on my shoulders is quite dry because of the winter weather. I need something! But unfortunately my shoulders are prone to breakouts. Anyone have any suggestion what I should try? Thanks!

    For really dry skin, I think the Kiehl's Intensive Treatment is amazing.

    My kids use this on their hands in the winter because their hands get so dry they crack.

    For less problem areas, I like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Cetaphil-Moist.../dp/B000052YMQ

    For everyday, I like these:

    Organic jojoba oil. Jojoba oil makes your skin amazingly soft and nourished. Even if you have tried other skin oils but havent tried jojoba-it feels so much more wonderful than others.

    Aveeno Daily Moisturizing lotion (the one in the two-pack at Costco).

    it's nice and thick but absorbs right away. no fragrance. not sticky. lasts all day (meaning my skin isn't itchy til my next shower). Sometimes I try a different lotion and always go back to the Aveeno. maybe it's the oatmeal in it that makes it work so well?

    I got a sample size of the Aveeno Eczema lotion at the derm and liked that one too. I kept it in my purse.

    Thanks everyone. I ended up with the Cerave, because it's what I saw first at Wegmans. It works, it's a little thicker than I like, but I haven't broken out. I'm not sure I'll buy another tub of it, so I appreciate the other options you all have given me. Thanks!!
