My skin has been super itchy to the point I just can’t stand it any longer. I have tried lotions after lotions and only came across one that has worked so far and that is Suave Cocoa Butter with Shea Moisturizer. It doesn’t have a strong fragrance to it and the lotion has enough natural moisturizers in it to help sooth and soften my skin right up so it doesn’t itch anymore.
This body lotion comes in a huge 18 fluid ounce bottle with a hand pump which I really like cause it makes the lotion easier to use. The lotion is a warm beige color and thick creamy consistency. It has a cocoa scent to it that reminds me of chocolate. The only natural moisturizing and soothing ingredients in the body lotion are cocoa butter and shea butter. The other ingredients are unnatural for those of you concerned about what is in your lotion such as petroleum, parabens, and dyes. To me this doesn’t matter because the lotion helps heal up my severely dried skin and stops the itching and that is all I am really looking for in a body lotion.
The best way I think to use this body lotion to help heal up super itchy dry skin is right after a warm bath or shower. This is usually when my skin is warm and moist and can fully absorb the most moisture from the lotion. I simply take a huge handful of the lotion and massage it into my freshly cleaned skin until the lotion is absorbed. The lotion absorbs really quickly into my skin without leaving a oily greasy mess behind which is nice.
The other way I like to use this body lotion is by massage handfuls of it into my skin right before I head off to bed. This helps prevent my skin from drying out and becoming itchy while I sleep. Plus I also like that my skin is super soft and smooth in the morning instead of dried out and rough which sometimes happened to me.
Another way I have been using the Suave Cocoa Butter with Shea is by mixing 2 cups of it in with my body wash to help create a moisturizing body wash. This helps keep my body wash from drying out my skin when I am washing up in the shower. It also helps add extra moisturizer and nourishment to my already irritated dry skin.
I do think the Suave Cocoa Butter with Shea is very affordable for the large bottle of lotion I get. I would recommend this body lotion to any person suffering from super dry itchy skin like I have been because it worked well for me. I do hope those of you who try this body lotion find some relief from your dry itchy skin.
