Pros: Excellent and inexpensive lotion for daily use.
Cons: Wish I had found this lotion years ago.
I recently discovered this product after reading a terrific review by Elzora describing Corn Huskers Lotion -- which to me was the first time I had heard about it. This is a simple, yet very effective lotion. It's not overly expensive or fancy by any means, yet it has helped my skin in the short time I've been using it. In fact it has helped my skin significantly more than many of the more expensive creams and lotions I have purchased.
I had actually heard of Corn Huskers Lotion, but hadn't paid attention to it. I think part of me was put off by the name. I don't husk corn for a living and at best, I only shuck corn a few times during the summer months. So why would I be interested in a lotion for farmers? I couldn't have been more wrong. This lotion is for anyone and everyone with dry skin. My skin is incredibly dry. To give you an example of how dry it is, I once went to my doctor for a foot problem. I had shorts on and as he examined by foot, he commented on how dry my legs looked. I was pretty mortified since I had put lotion on my legs that morning. I notice that even though I regularly apply other lotions to my arms and legs, they will appear flaky and dry within a couple of hours. But to my complete and utter surprise, with Corn Huskers Lotion this has not happened. I can apply Corn Huskers Lotion at bedtime and in the morning, my legs will still look and feel soft and smooth and not flaky at all. I have also occasionally had problems with dry heels. I found a good product for that problem as well, Lotrimin AF but, in between I am now also using Corn Huskers Lotion to combat that condition. This product is also great for dry spots such as elbows and knees.
Corn Huskers Lotion is a thick-ish, pearly white color and consistency. You only need a small amount. I had been squeezing out a little too much at first until I got used to it. It is quickly and easily absorbed too and doesn't leave any greasy feeling at all. There is no oil in this product, so no residue remains on your hands.
I purchased this product at Long's Drugs for $4.58, but next time I hope to find it elsewhere for a little less money because I want to keep 2-3 bottles of it near me at all times. For example, I want to keep one in my gym bag, so I can use it after showering after my workout. Actually, I find the fragrance very nice too, it reminds me of a subtle baby powder scent. I am using this lotion daily now and my only regret is that I didn't find it sooner.
UPDATE: I found this at Walmart over the weekend for $3.25, so I bought two more! YAY!
