Daily Moisture Shea + Enriching Cocoa Butter Lotion
This body lotion has a better formula for dry skin than most of the others from Lubriderm, but that's not saying much. Still, if you’re considering a body moisturizer from Lubriderm this is among their best. Shea and cocoa butter are part of this body lotion's name, and the amounts of each will likely impart some benefit to dry skin. The lack of sunscreen makes the "daily" portion of the product name misleading; this body lotion is best applied in the evening or, if used in the morning, follow with sunscreen on any exposed skin. This would earn a higher rating if it contained a better mix of antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients, though both shea and cocoa butter are sources of antioxidants, so this isn’t a bust in that regard.
- Contains a good mix of ingredients for dry skin
- Formula would be better with a broader range of antioxidants and the inclusion of cell-communicating ingredients.
- Lack of sunscreen makes the "daily" portion of the name misleading.
Soften and smooth dry skin with Lubriderm Daily Nourishing Radiance Lotion with Shea & Cocoa Butters. This nourishing, non-greasy formula, enriched with shea and cocoa butters, helps leave your skin feeling smooth, supple and moisturized for 24 hours.
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Weaknesses: Mostly outdated formulas that lack a range of skin-repairing ingredients; the body lotion with SPF 15 does not provide sufficient UVA protection; not much distinction between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.
