Lay It On Thick Body Cream Review & Photos

For somebody that has very dry skin, I would definitely recommend this product! I would not say that this is a daytime lotion. It is very thick and sticky feeling, but it has the most moisturizing capabilities of any lotion I've tried. Like stated on the packaging, this lotion has no fragrance - major plus! One of the best things about this lotion is the fact that a little goes a long way. The price may seem expensive - $6 for 2 oz, but I can't see somebody going through this very quickly. If you have really dry hands, elbows, knees, etc, I would suggest giving this a shot.

Carmex Healing Lotion Review & Photos

With a brand new lotion line from Carmex, I'm pretty impressed. Yesterday, I reviewed the Carmex Healing Cream, which is my favorite of the two. The Carmex Healing Lotion is also very good. It has a much faster absorbing time, but with a less moisturizing effect. I originally got the full size, but my took it over. Before Christmas, Walgreens had travel sizes of a few different hand lotions - Carmex Healing Lotion included. I picked up a few to keep in my purse, pencil case, etc. This definitely great for on the go, since you don't have to wait for it to soak in. This is must have lotion if you have dry hands in the winter and need something to carry with you.

Carmex Healing Cream Review & Photos

Looking for a thick, moisturizing hand cream? Well here's one of the best I've found. Even though this lotion has the same smell has all Carmex products (which I don't find appealing), this stuff definitely works very well for dry hands, elbows, knees, etc. As said on the packaging, it is a very concentrated lotion, which allows it to be one of the most moisturizing hand creams I have. However, I do not think that it "absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel." Personally, my hands are very cracked and dry in the winter, but this product does not absorb fast. It does absorb after a given time though. I wouldn't say it has a greasy feel before drying, but it's almost sticky. It has the same texture as Carmex chapstick. Overall, this lotion is great for the dry months of winter!

Aussie Sydney Smooth 3 Minute Miracle Review & Photos

One of the most amazing products has now been found. This smoothing treatment has a gel consistency, much like shampoo, but then makes your hair feel like you just put a deep, moisturizing conditioner on it. I have found that using this product with the Sydney Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner makes my hair feel much more smooth and silky, and much more manageable. I have always been a fan of deep conditioners because my hair is fairly thick and very frizzy. This definitely helps with frizzy, thick hair. In general, my hair feels a lot smoother and healthier. I would tell anybody to give this product a shot, because I don't think you'll regret it. It think it definitely depends on hair type though, because I could thinner hair having a problem with the product making their hair seem greasy or too moisturized.
If you've tried this out, please let me know what you think of it!
