Dry Skin???


Lara got me thinking of the winter and how dry your skin can get.

I took Haley into the doctor last week to check out her hands because they were really sore and I thought it was a rash. It seemed like the ever so popular Bath and Body lotion wasn't doing the trick. The doctor suggested, Cetephil cream. Okay, has anyone used this? Am I the last to find out about it? It is the best stuff I have ever used. It's not greasy like all the others and it leaves your hands so soft.

The bad part is the expense and it doesn't have a fruity smell like the bath and body stuff. I think I paid $8 for a 3 oz bottle. Oh well, now the whole family is enjoying the doc's recommendation.

Ya! That stuff is great! Igot a free sample once at the hospital and I really liked it. Thanks for reminding me because we could totally use some.

Spencer is really (translated REALLY NOT) enjoying the lotion treatments his doctor has prescribed for use twice a day!

Wow, we live in a dry world, don't we? If I remember right, Cetaphil not only doesn't smell like fruit, it smells kind of like barf. But if it works! My Anna's hands have been red and dry too, and she says everything stings that we try to use. I'm going to give the Cetaphil a try.

Haven't used Cetaphil, but given the expense, I hope a little bit goes a long way. As for Ethan, I realized that no only does he suck on his lips while he's awake, but he does it in his sleep. Good grief! Maybe Santa will bring him some Cetaphil for his stocking.

It sounds like a good lotion! I'm going to try it! Thanks for the info!
