Winter weather dries out my skin. It's the only time of year I actively seek lotion to restore it back to being smooth (and not itchy!). That being said, I don't like lotion that has an overpowering scent to it, not even if it's a fragrance that I like.
Udderly Smooth, made in the USA for 30 years now, has a product line that offers thick, creamy lotion without the overpowering scent, and I really like it. Regardless of what type you are using, it dissipates quickly and doesn't leave a greasy feel on your skin (who likes greasy lotion?).
Udderly Smooth also comes in various types of containers/packages, and I really like the jar form. Being able to untwist the lid and scoop out as much/little lotion as you want strongly appeals to me. I like it way better than squeezing a tube (though tubes are great for carrying along in your purse or when traveling), fighting with a pump that's no longer working (does that happen to you???), or trying unsucessfully to get the lotion out of those itty bitty tip top caps). The container I like is fat too...nice and roomy (it reminds me of the cold cream containers women used to keep in their bathrooms). I saw a container that looked like a milk bottle on their website too, and I thought that was such a cute idea!
The two places I seem to have the biggest challenge with in the winter are the bottom half of my legs (seriously, they start to itching every winter and it drives me batty), and my tooties (feet).
For my legs the Udderly Cream Original Formula works instantly and long-term, and I have only good things to say about it. My husband works outside a good deal of the time and his hands suffer because of it. He liked the Original Formula too, and said it did bring some relief to him.
If you see Udderly Smooth while you're out shopping, go ahead and give the product most appealing to you a try (or you can order from their website). I don't think you'll be disappointed at all, and you may just find yourself with a new lotion favorite.
There is one more thing I would like to say about the product: Just because I have discussed it as a product for alleviating dry, itchy winter skin (for me and my family) it is not a seasonal product. You can purchase it year-round (and I recommend that you do). On their FAQ page I read that keeping a jar in the refrigerator during the summer is great way to ease the ouchie of a sunburn. We seem to have one person get a burn each year, despite precautionary measures, so when the weather gets warmer, we'll be giving that a try too.
Udderly Smooth has a much larger variety of products to look through than I have discussed here, and you can find out more about them, and/or the company on their website. You can also follow them on Facebook, and/or Twitter.
