Scratch a fingernail down your forearm or across your shin. See a white line? We hate to be the bringers of bad news, but that means your skin is dehydrated. So much love, care, and luxury cream goes into the upkeep of our faces—but nourishment must extend to the body, too! Start by slathering on the daily dose of moisture it needs to stay smooth, supple, and scale-free. Here are six lotions that have done just that, according to our customers.

Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer, P79
Tsin, Combination Skin: “I used to have very scaly skin on my legs and heels! And no matter what lotion I slather on them they just keep on coming back, that at one point I thought I might have some skin disease or something! Thank God I discovered Jergen’s Ultra Healing lotion—it has put my mind at ease on the skin disease thought! And true enough, my scaly legs and heels were gone with religious use of this lotion! I continue to use this on my legs and on colder days, the rest of my body.”

Dove Intensive Body Lotion Cream Oil, P415
Anjie, 22, Normal Skin: “I’m suffering from dry and flaky skin [which has] never been flattering. I discovered this Dove Intensive Body Lotion Cream Oil and I actually LOVED IT! I feel comfortable using this product. It’s not sticky or super shiny when absorbed by my skin. This makes my skin hydrated and glowing! I also love the perfumey scent it leaves on the skin. I’M SATISFIED! Definitely recommendable!”

St. Ives Skin Renewing Collagen & Elastin Body Lotion, P259
Mel, 28, Combination Skin: “I’m not a fan of lotion but after discovering this product, this is now my holy grail. It is true to its claim. It makes my skin not only feel soft but look smooth, too, for the whole day (until the next day)! I have very dry skin but it makes my skin feel moisturized 24/7. I never feel sweaty after applying it even during hot and humid days, unlike the other products that I have tried. It is truly quickly absorbed by the skin! At a very affordable price, this product is a steal!”

Human Nature Berry Bliss 100% Natural Body Butter, P300
Abigail, 24, Sensitive Skin: “My skin is often very dry and this is one of the few lotions that have worked for me. It absorbs quickly and makes my dry spots disappear. This variant has a candy-like smell. If that bothers you, don’t worry, the smell only lasts until you finish applying the lotion. Amount [of product] is very much worth it for the price.”

Aloe Derma Spa Body Cream, on sale at P281
Jennifer, 31, Combination Skin: “I’m in love with this body cream and I can say that its name fits its nourishing powers. Your skin is definitely getting a treat, as if you’ve just walked out from the spa. The subtle smell is relaxing. It also gets easily absorbed by the skin. Not sticky even [in] hot weather. I also notice how it makes my skin healthy-looking even [upon] first use. Will definitely repurchase once I’m done with my bottle. Glad I’ve found it here in BeautyMNL.”

Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Lotion, P250
Carol, Combination Skin: “Dry skin is a serious problem. I hate seeing flakes or white patches on my skin. Using this has aided [in] some serious recovery for my skin. I have the tendency to overdo bath scrubbing and I am glad I found this lotion to help it recover. It has intensive moisture but none of the greasy feeling. I lather generous heaps to my heel area because I dislike seeing white lines or patterns. And it works! Totally recommendable!”

Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion for All Skin Types, P1,100
Kris, 30, Combination Skin: “Being lightweight and not greasy is probably the best asset of this Cetaphil lotion. It is very refreshing and soothing to the skin. It also has a very faint smell which [is] unobtrusive but makes you feel fresh and clean. I usually have dry skin on my legs but this product really saved my legs! Now I can wear my shorts and mini-skirts without being insecure of my scaly dry skin.”
