Thoughts for Thursday: My Favorite Lotions

Happy Thursday! I thought I'd share my favorite hand, body and face lotions/moisturizers with y'all today. 

Thankfully, winter seems to be moving its way out of North Texas and the need for super deep moisturizing isn't as dire as it is when it's super cold out, but with Texas' back-and-forth, bi-polar weather...well, you just never know what you're going to need in your arsenal of beauty products. 

Here are my favorites: 

For Face: 

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture {Combination Skin}: The only daytime moisturizer that works on my combination skin. Bonus points that it's cheap and I can typically purchase it on Amazon without getting out of my house! 
  • Nuxe Crème Prodigieus: I've blogged about this one before, but the smell alone is totally worth the purchase. But of course, it works wonders to deeply moisturize my dry winter skin overnight.  
  • Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate: I first got this as a sample from Sephora, but quickly purchased the full bottle. Yes, it's expensive, but man, I wake up and I feel like my skin is glowing and healthy looking.  

For Body: 

For Hands: 
  • O'Keefe's Working Hands: I'm sure this was originally marketed toward men, but I love this stuff! It's technically Brandon's in our house, but I use it when my hands are dry, cracked and gross-feeling after washing my hands 3,000 times a day. Because you know, kids. ;) 
  • Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream: I got this as a sample from Influenster a couple of years ago and it takes such a little dab that I still have the bottle! I keep it in the side pocket of my diaper bag and have it on hand at all times. It really works!
  • Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve: Also a somewhat pricey option, this hand salve works wonders on dry, cracked hands. Mine were so dry they were bleeding earlier this winter, and after a few applications of this at nighttime, my hands were good as new. 

Which are your favorites? I'd love to hear! 

Linking up with Annie, Natalie and Julie 


  1. Oh I want to try out that dry body spray-I have never heard of it before!

  2. You are the second person in like two weeks that I've seen recommend that Norwegian hand cream - it sounds so perfect for winter. Thanks for this great round-up!
