I smell

like Bath & Body Works Cool citrus Basil or something to that effect. The doctor told me I need to moisturize more, to prevent eczema and to get rid of the eczema I already have. So in addition to my nightly moisturizing, I've added a morning version. At night, I use Nivea creme, but it's too greasy to put on to do anything other than jump into bed. So this morning, I just grabbed the other bottle of lotion that was on my nightstand.

I'm not sure how I feel about the smell. It's nice, but slightly distracting. Anyone have any lotion recommendations? I use the Nivea creme at night, and I use Nivea Soft for my hands during the day. But I think I need a little variety! Anyone use something other than Nivea?

I'm a big fan of the before bed Nivea Night Cream ritual, that stuff is great. I have super dry skin so I am always slathering on lotion...my daytime favorite of the moment is Suave Natural Oatmeal lotion. It works well to make my skin less dry/itchy AND I love the smell. It is not perfumey it just smells clean.

I like that Night Cream too. For day, I really like Crabtree and Evelyn's Gardener's lotion. It's really for hands but I use it everywhere and I like the smell.

OK, I'm totally going to check out the Nivea Night Cream. Thanks for the concurrence, girls... makes it easier!

Will also check out Suave Oatmeal and C & E's gardener's lotion.

I also love, love, love L'Occitaine's shea butter lavender hand creme, but don't want to smell like lavender all day long.

Seriously, check out "Olay Moisturinse" for in the shower. It's amazing. I have super dry skin and swear by this new product. (http://www.cvs.com/CVSApp/cvs/gateway/detail?prodid=275411)

My two favourites for the morning(not sure whether these variants are available in the US though) are J&J pH 5.5 Moisturizing Body Wash (for the shower) and then Dove Body Silk (very light and silky-feeling moisturising cream with unassuming scent that comes in a pot).
