I suffer from extremely dry skin. In the winter, when it is cold out, i cant even apply lotion because everything i use makes my skin itch and burn. I recently came across glaxal base lotion. The price isn't too bad. 10$ a bottle. although you can only buy it online. It is hypoallergenic, perfume free, lanolin free, paraben free, and is non greasy. It also has vitamin E in it. It works very nicely on my skin, I do not react to it, and my skin is extremely soft. The only downside to this lotion is it smells like a doctors office. But hey for its great mosturizing effect on my skin I'm not complaining. I would definitely recommend this to any one suffering from dry skin.
