For a while I've had the opportunity to observe the effects of Curel's Ultra Healing Intensive Lotion. My mother has very thin and aging skin, it breaks easily and is dry constantly. She's always used lotions multiple times a day for as long as I can remember. For the last month she's been using the Curel Ultra Healing Intensive Lotion that they sent me. It's made a vast improvement in her skin all over but especially her hands and arms.
She uses it about 3 times a day and also after she does dishes or takes a bath or shower. So anytime she's been in a lot of water she uses it. Her hands had really aged in the last year or two and constantly her skin would break and bleed because of the medications she had to take for her asthma and allergies.
As we were going over my schedule this week I noticed how smooth her hands looked. The lines had drastically improved and her skin wasn't breaking as much anymore. It wasn't as thin as it had been before. As we talked about it she didn't even realize it's strength, until I asked her if her skin felt as thin as it used to be or if it was still breaking as it used to. Which happily it's not! This lotion does claim to make skin much stronger and I 100% believe that it does.
For myself I find this incredibly hydrating, and absorbs quickly without leaving behind a residue. It's the texture of a "water cream", that we're seeing a lot of in the skin care world especially from Korean skincare. What I mean by that is just that it comes out as almost a hybrid of cream and gel. Absorbs quickly kinda like water does when it hits your skin, and keeps your skin hydrated without feeling greasy, feeling sticky, or feeling anything except hydrated skin. So as far as lotions go for all skin types (even though it says it's for dry or very dry skins), for all seasons, this gets two thumbs up from me. It's affordable, won't break the bank, it's in a pump style packaging, and it comes in various sizes ranging from 1 oz - 20 oz.
