    Default Body moisturizer

    What do you use?
    I usually use cocoa butter but DF keeps complaining that I smell like chocolate (thought that would be a good thing, he is a chocoholic).
    I also usually use moo goo, but a few weeks ago I was in the car with DF and he said he could smell vomit, then questioned me as to if the girls had vomited in the car lately etc etc. I narrowed it down to my arm, it smelt like vomit, and it was coz of the moo goo I had put on that morning

    So, what do you use? I need something that lasts too, not just soaks in and then my skin is dry again.

    The more you use the more your skin needs it in saying that, I do worse- J&J body wash...can't remember what scent it's the honey colored container. I just use Renkin sorbolene on my hands and face after a shower.

    P.S I have never noticed you smelling like vomit

    we have just started using supple skin oil by l'occitane it is expensive but so very worth it. I use it on DD1 for her eczema and it works really really well and doesn't leave you feeling oily and it smells nice

    Nivea. I've used it ever since I can remember. I have very dry skin and if I skip a day of moisturising, my skin flakes I'm that arid!
    The Nivea in the light blue bottle, "Irresistibly Smooth" is the one I use, it absorbs beautifully, doesn't leave me feeling sticky and leaves no shine on my face either. I use it once a day after showering, head to toe.
    During pregnancy, I also use Bio Oil (but that's for the stretchmarks, I don't use it for my dry skin alone, although it does help.)
    I also have a big collection of body butters, I like the nice scented ones especially in summer, like Cranberry Joy from the body shop.
    I don't like the smell of coco butter on my skin, either. I love eating chocolate, not smelling like it! I prefer soft soapy or fruity frangrances on my skin.
    I don't know what I'd do without my Nivea! And it's cheap, around 6-7 dollars for 400mls.

    Just remembered, OP if you still like the cocoa butter you can get 'scentless' cocoa butter. It still smells but not as strong.
