The Best Body Lotions To Help With Dry Skin

Gurls! I don’t know about you, but I am struggling with dry skin this winter. Like the Sahara Desert struggling. My skin is always dry, but once we turn on the heat signaling winter, it goes into overdrive! In case you are also dealing with this issue, I did a little research and am sharing the best body lotions to help with dry skin. I’ve found highly reviewed products, so shop away!

I recently did a post about The Best Winter Makeup Must Haves For Women Over 50. I mentioned that I had been using La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm AP+ Intense Repair Body Lotion for Dry Skin, and I still do. But, when I recently had a facial, I mentioned that my skin was dry everywhere except for my face. She recommended that I try OSEA, so I ordered it, and I love it. I ordered the 4-piece Skincare Kit to see which products I would like, if any.

The body oil and body butter were the two products I loved the most. They have a citrus smell, and my skin feels so smooth after I use them.

I add the oil to damp skin as I get out of the shower, and then follow with the body butter.

The oil soaks in quickly and doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily. I doubt that these products will cure my dry skin, but they sure are making it feel better.

The Best Body Lotions To Help With Dry Skin – 7,000+ reviews

One of the things that I look for in a lotion is the scent. Specifically, I don’t want any, lol. Pretty much any fragrance gives me a headache. This Alba Botanica lotion is unscented, yay! This is paraben-free, and is Leaping Bunny certified, which means it’s never tested on animals. A lot of people like this lotion. It’s been reviewed over 7,000 times and a 4.6-star rating!

I love a good shower lotion! For whatever reason, it’s easier for me to remember to do it then. Otherwise, I’m in such a hurry that I’m out and dressed before thinking about it. Anyway, this Curel product is activated by water so you’ll want to apply it while wet, and it’s also unscented for those of you who are like me and sensitive. Another lotion that has over 7,000 reviews and it has a rating of 4.7 stars!

The Best Body Lotions To Help With Dry Skin – 10,000+ reviews

Is there a brand more synonymous with lotion than Jergens? This uses shea butter which I can tolerate in light doses, and I think smells divine. This is an inexpensive way to get your skin hydrated, as it’s typically under $10 dollars. It has a 4.7-star rating and more than 10,000 reviews!

Lubriderm is another brand that makes great lotions. This is an advanced formula containing Vitamin E and B5 for extra dry and itchy skin. They should just call it Tania’s Version! Like some of the others, this is fragrance-free. Over 12,000 people have taken the time to review this lotion, and it has a star rating of 4.7!

Yum, coconut! This smell reminds me of summer days and sunbathing. Why is coconut oil so good for lotion? Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids, which help to moisturize & nourish the skin. Plus, it’s rich in antioxidants! It’s been reviewed over 14,000 times and has a rating of 4.5 stars. Nice!

For those of you who like your lotion to smell good, here’s a great offering from Nivea. It’s very reasonably priced at under 10 dollars. When we’re overly familiar with a product or it’s inexpensive, we tend to think the quality is poor. Maybe in some instances, but this lotion has over 15,000 reviews and a great 4.7-star rating!

The Best Body Lotions To Help With Dry Skin – 20,000+ reviews

Aveeno with triple oat complex? I guess people have been using oats in facial masks for a very long time, so it makes sense. This is an unscented product; yay again! It’s a pretty large bottle for around $15.00, so not a bad deal. Lots of people agree that it works. They are under 100 people away from 20,000 reviews and have a 4.7-star rating. If you like, let’s get them over the top with reviews!

I’ve been a fan of Nivea for a long time, but I had to laugh when I read the reviews. It says that it’s unscented, but the reviews say it has a very pleasant smell. Maybe everyone is smelling their own arms, lol. This has a nice, light feel as opposed to some greasy overbearing lotions. They’ve reached the milestone of having over 20,000 reviews and 4.7 stars!

The Best Body Lotions To Help With Dry Skin – 100,000+ reviews

Obviously, CeraVe is a huge, well-known brand. I love that it’s fragrance-free and available at a decent price. This 19-ounce bottle is under $20. Does it work?? If reviews mean anything to you, you may want to sit down. It’s been reviewed over ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND times. Wowzer. It has a 4.7 rating. How do 100,000 people agree on anything?

Let me know if you have a go-to lotion when winter hits or if you’re going to try something new.

  1. Thanks for posting this I have always had dry skin as well but this year it has been really bad. Going to try a few of these.
    Thanks Monica

  2. Joanne W. says:

    I really needed this information! Thanks!

  3. Lori Gorenflo says:

    Thanks for the reviews of all the lotions for dry skin. I am really needing that right now.

  4. I love this post and I only like unscented lotions also. I do always have organic castor oil on hand to mix with my body lotions and this helps immensely with dry skin, especially over our Canadian dry winter months in Alberta. The castor oil makes the lotion last at least an extra day. I’m going to see if I can find OSEA in Canada as would like to try that one. Thanks so much for this fantastic post.

  5. Thanks for posting – I have extremely dry skin and will be trying some of these.

  6. sue koren says:

    Perfect timing for this post!

  7. My daughter gave me BumBum Cream for Christmas and I love it.

  8. Tania, thank you SO MUCH for this post! I am always on the hunt for lotion to help with my dry winter skin. I love that these are reasonably priced so that I am not putting a lot of money on the line to see if a lotion works better than what I’m using now. My dermatologist recommended Eucerin Eczema Relief cream for my itchy dry skin. I don’t have Eczema, but this creamy formula has colloidal oatmeal and is fragrance free and is not greasy. I really like it for my hands. Like you, I have real trouble keeping my hands moisturized in the winter.

  9. I’ve been using Nivea for years and it really helps my very dry skin.

  10. Susan Hedgecock says:

    Yep, dry skin is a problem in the winter! I like both Nivea and Aveeno lotions.

  11. My cabinet is full of lotions, but a few of these sound interesting. I’m going to check them out. NE winters aren’t favorable for skin.

  12. Tammy Files says:

    Thank you so much for this! My daughter and I both have serious dry skin issues. She is a nurse and has to wash her hands all day.

  13. My doctor recommended CeraVe. I have to be careful and not aggravate my skin and get an eczema flare up. On my arms and lower legs I use Gold Bond crepe skin lotion. On my more sensitive skin I use an organic lotion. It’s not helping so I’m going to try CeraVe. I use organic castor oil on my face and feet which keeps my skin soft and not dry. Last night I put it on my hands and wore spa gloves. My hands were so soft this morning. It’s tough to keep hands moisturized throughout the day.

  14. My skin is oily and normally hate lotions because of how greasy my palms feel. In the winter I have to suck it up and deal with it because even I get dry skin (except my face). Thanks for all the suggestions here. I do love a shower lotion because I feel like my hands don’t stay slick for some reason.

  15. Cathy Baird says:

    CeraVe’ is my go to login. it’s my legs that get so dry. I use a sugar scrub in the shower on them and then after drying off, I use the CeraVe’. this lotion makes my skin so smooth and moist.

  16. I have several of these lotions! I love the Jergens one a lot! My skin isn’t that dry but this one works great on me!

  17. Jacque Abell says:

    I like Dr. Teals bath and body oil.
    Sometimes I forget to put it on before I put my clothes on though.

  18. Gabrielle says:

    Didn’t want to spend the $ on the large size of OSEA b/c I am picky about body lotions. I saw Ulta has a travel size for $16 – that I can do!

  19. Linda Shearer says:

    Great Post. I have super dry skin and after you posted about the La Rocha Posey lotion I bought it. Game changer for me I have to apply every day but it has cleared up the exema on my legs. Might have to try the Osea too! Thanks for this post.

    1. I love that lotion. The only issue with it is that it is so thick that it doesn’t all come up through the pump. You will need to get a beauty spatula to reach the last portion of the lotion. Here is one I use: https://amzlink.to/az0BXqOfPq6ew

      1. Linda Shearer says:

        Thank You I ordered one from your previous post
        and it came yesterday!

  20. Wonderful post, I am going to try Alba lotion, I have tried all the others and I do love several but always up for trying something else.

  21. I like the aveeno one.

  22. CeraVe is a brand I have used for years and I love it. I am obsessed with anything coconut and vanilla scented. You gave us so many choices. Thank you.

  23. I love the Osea body products. Their salt of the earth body scrub is also amazing.

    1. I have that too, Julia. I’m always afraid to use it though, I don’t want the shower to be slippery.

  24. Susan Hughes says:

    This winter has me using Vanicream for my skin. There is no fragrance and is drug store available.
