Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash

BEST FOR: Soothing dry, irritated skin

USERS SAID: “I love this soap. It's gentle and soothing to my skin and leaves my skin soft and supple. I have eczema so I have to be careful with the products I use. I'm gifting all of my other soaps because I only want to use this now. The others are good, but this is perfect.”

Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion

LOVED FOR: Relieving your skin of itch, dryness, and roughness

USERS SAID: “This is the best in-shower moisturizer! First, you don't need as much in the shower as you do with some other in-shower products, so it lasts longer. It stays on your skin and really feels like you have just applied lotion after you dry off. Even throughout the day, I can tell that it's still on my skin and working."

Nivea In-Shower Nourishing Body Lotion

LOVED FOR: Saving you time and nourishing even the driest skin

USERS SAID: “LOVE THIS STUFF! I cannot believe not everyone knows about it. This is seriously the best! I would never put lotion on, even if my skin was painfully dry because I just cannot stand the sticky feeling. Also, I take my showers at night, and being able to hop in bed after without having to wait for lotion to sink in is everything. It smells divine and leaves my skin feelings soft, smooth and moisturized. And NOT STICKY!”

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Coconut Oil

USERS SAID: “I was skeptical about this product. Even when I put it on after the shower I thought I wouldn't do anything besides smell good. Boy was I wrong. My skin is so moisturized it is glowing! The smell is fresh and subtle. Definitely a little product that packs some punch.”

BEST FOR: Those who believe in the power of coconut oil

Olay Ultra Moisture In-Shower Body Lotion with Shea Butter

LOVED FOR: The scent and powerful moisturizing properties 

USERS SAID: “Wow! This stuff is amazing! I used it for the first time yesterday, and I still feel the effects today. My skin is soft, and has a WONDERFUL smell!"
