Pros: Inexpensive, non-greasy, can use for hands, face, and body, doesn't cause breakouts
One skin product I cannot go a day without using is Nutraderm Therapeutic Lotion. This dermatologist-recommended product has been in my bathroom for about eight years and I often use it four or five times a day depending on how dry my skin is. Nutraderm Therapeutic Lotion is manufactured by Healthpoint.
Nutraderm Therapeutic Lotion is intended for dry, sensitive skin. It is a non-greasy formula intended for use on hands, face, and body. The products packaging claims it will
-Provide immediate moisture to dry skin
-Seal in moisture
-Create a barrier to protect skin from drying elements
-Not clog pores
The lotion can be applied as frequently as desired.
I really dislike greasy lotions on my body and my face is very sensitive and many products cause it to break out. This lotion is perfect for me. It is the only one I have found that does not cause any problems with my sensitive skin and it really does the job with moisturizing. I can use it many times a day without becoming greasy. Typically I apply Nutraderm every time I wash my face and often carry it with me in case my skin becomes dry throughout the day. It is particularly useful in the summer when my face tends to be dry and peel.
I love Nutraderms texture. It is not greasy at all but still provides plenty of moisture. After using this product for so long many other hand and body lotions feel far too greasy to me. Nutraderm is light and easy to apply and I love the pump bottle.
Size and Value
All Nutraderm products come with a distinctive pink and yellow label. I always purchase the 16 ounce bottle, which comes with a handy pump for dispensing the lotion. The lotion frequently goes on sale for as low as $10 or so at the pharmacy I visit. Normally the price for this size is around $14 which still isnt so bad for such a large amount of lotion. There are a couple of smaller sizes available as well but they are not such a good deal. A tiny trial size can be found at some locations or requested from a dermatologist. I use this lotion multiple times per day but the 16 ounce bottle still lasts me about 4-6 months. This product is one of the best beauty deals I have found and is far superior to many more expensive facial and body lotions.
Ingredients (for those with sensitivities)
Purified Water, Mineral Oil, Sorbitan Stearate, Stearyl Alcohol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, Carbomer 840, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Triethanolamine, Propylparaben and Fragrence.
Good Luck Finding It!
My only complaint about Nutraderm Therapeutic Lotion is that it is not available very many places. Ive found one pharmacy in my area that carries it but it is locally owned. I havent yet found Nutraderm at any major chain such as Walgreens or CVS. If you cant find this lotion near you, try calling Healthpoint at 1-800-441-8227.
I cant say enough good things about Nutraderm Therapeutic Lotion. This product is a great value and one of the only lotions I have tried that doesnt cause breakouts. Nutraderm can be used on face, hands, or body and I love the huge pump bottle. If you are looking for a great non-greasy lotion, Nutraderm Therapeutic Lotion is a great choice.
