Day Five--Lotion

First thought, of course, is "it rubs the lotion on its skin..." from 'Silence of the Lambs.'  But, I'm not going to be that obvious.  :)

All of the years that I have had psoriasis has led me to use hundreds of different skin lotions.  There have been times when I have had two dozen different ones in the house at any given time.  And my conclusion?  None of them have been over-the-top great.

One thing that I had to do because of my sensitive skin is look for products with little/no scent OR natural 'essential' oils in them.  It isn't all that easy--or it wasn't--to find products on the shelf (and I'm talking at Walmart, etc) that had no scent.  Of course, it was next to impossible to find anything with only essential oils until I discovered Lush.  The internet kept me supplied with my lotions for many, many years.  Since being on Enbrel, however, I find myself able to expand what I use a bit more than I used to AND it is a bit easier to find non-scented stuff in stores these days.  I still wonder what we ever did without the internet!

I like it. The best part is, find a Lush store and (probably) get a free sample to take home with you. Even though they have a good return policy, it's always nicer to be able to try before you buy.
