Advantages: Absolutely not greasy, easily absorbed, works
The E45 lotion is my preferred body moisturiser. I have naturally very dry skin and find that after showering my skin got particularly flaky. To combat this, I tried many different brands of body moisturiser and E45's labelling mentioned it is effective for this type of dermatological complaint and even suitable for more serious skin conditions like eczema, so it seemed to be tick the right boxes for me.
I am not a fan of creams that leave a sticky residue, I like for them to absorb into the skin after application and then disappear without a trace. This is exactly what the E45 lotion does. This product is much more liquid than the cream version and as a result I find that it will rub into the skin easily and in a minute or two left the skin soft and with no sign that anything was applied. Which is a bonus as you will not need to wipe your hands before touching other things you don't want to get cream on.
The liquidity of the lotion also allows a faster application to the body, good if you are either in a rush or don't want to waste precious time moisturising (I am of the latter category).
I have used this every day now for months and my skin no longer flakes like the nightmare before. I never have dry, cracked skin anywhere on my body and am very thankful for E45 in creating this product.
E45 Lotion is best bought when they are on the 3 for the price of 2 offers, these run quite frequently, so stock up on them as appropriate and then use them daily as I think is very important to maintain the smooth, moisturised skin and means should you miss a couple of days you have a grace period where your skin is still supple.
Summary: A lotion that moisturises very dry skin
