We love CJ's lotion here too. I use unscented on my face too with no breakouts. If he/she is really dry I suggest using CJ's BUTTer though. It clears up and dry skin within a few hours in our house.

This was my experience with my oldest, exactly.

I like CJs for myself and the baby, but the oldest has eczema and Aquafor was the only thing that touched it at its peak. And goodness knows we tried everything.

I like CJs for my own dry elbow and such. I hate using plain coconut oil because it stinks 5 minutes later, but CJs keeps smelling good to me.

Re: Favorite natural lotion?

I love EMAB Angel Baby Lotion. My youngest has fairly severe eczema flares so I don't use it on her just yet as I'm afraid the EO may make her react (I'll test it out soon though, and likely she'll be fine with it), but my older DDs (also eczema prone) don't seem to be bothered by it. I think it moisturizes very well, is not greasy, and smells wonderful! It's all natural, zero toxin, and organic. I use it too, and love it!

Re: Favorite natural lotion?

I don't know if this is just me, Love Cj's but i find it too expensive.
$12 for an 8oz lotion??

Have used the butter, not the lotion though. What am I missing here??

Any natural not too expensive lotions out there??

I have heard great things about coconut oil. It's so "oily" though. Does it make your clothes stick to you?

Re: Favorite natural lotion?

I like the California Baby stuff - especialy the calendula cream - that was by far my favorite. I also like Sensaria. I have a ton of it - I used to sell it until the company went out of business. I really should start gifting or selling some of it, lol

Subbing. I've been using Aveeno, or rather the walmart equivalent on the kids. Its cheap and it works, but if i could find something thats natural AND inexpensive that would be awesome! Both kids have mild eczema
