Advanced Therapy Lotion
This extremely ordinary, mineral oil–based body moisturizer for dry skin falls short of providing dry skin with the range of ingredients research has shown are needed for significant improvement. The blend of mineral oil with glycerin and emollients it contains is workable, but the formula contains too few essential ingredients such as antioxidants and skin-repairing substances. Please see our list of Best Body-Care Products for superior body lotions.
- Provides some basic yet good ingredients for dry skin.
- Contains only a dusting of state-of-the-art ingredients such as skin-repairing substances.
- Antioxidants are in short supply.
- Not a "unique formula" as claimed, at least not in terms of what research has shown dry skin needs to significantly improve.
Soothe and relieve extra-dry skin. It moisturizes for 24 hours and is clinically shown to turn extra-dry skin into healthier, more resilient skin in just one week. This unique formula is fortified with vitamins B5 & E and skin-essential lipids naturally found in healthy skin.
Strengths: Inexpensive; some fragrance-free body lotions; Lubriderm provides complete product ingredient lists on its Web site.
Weaknesses: Mostly outdated formulas that lack a range of skin-repairing ingredients; the body lotion with SPF 15 does not provide sufficient UVA protection; not much distinction between formulas, especially in the Daily Moisture range.
Among body lotion brands, Lubriderm is recognizable at drugstores and grocery stores around the world. Unfortunately, most of their formulas are about as exciting as watching grass grow! Instead of providing dry, itchy skin with a range of state-of-the-art ingredients proven to offer lasting benefits, Lubriderm stops short at the basics, with formulas that echo back to the 1960s.
What Lubriderm leaves out are the ingredients that would supply your skin with a healthy dose of antioxidants, skin-repairing ingredients, or cell-communicating ingredients. All these types of ingredients can actually "repair" skin, not just put a Band-Aid on the problem of dry skin.
Lubriderm products are not bad, but it's like using a typewriter instead of a computer. Simply put, science has advanced skin care far beyond what Lubriderm formulas provide.
Lubriderm's price point is attractive, but saving money isn't always the end game. Besides, there are other inexpensive brands whose impressive body moisturizer formulas mean you dont have to settle for less.
