I have dry skin and I LOVE TBS Cocoa Butter. Its heavenly moisturizing.
Body lotion on a budget – Himalaya all purpose cold cream serves the purpose.

Rati.. the logo pic for this series says MIBB instead of IMBB.. 😀


Rati November 19, 2012 at 11:20 am

it’s imbb only. the font is sort of like that


Surabhi November 19, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Oops..!!! Yeah..!!!! It’s IMBB.. 😀 and yaar.. the cake is soooo awesome.. the person who thought of that vanity bag on the cake is super creative..!!! Next yr.. when I am in Delhi.. I am coming to eat the cake for 4 th anniversary.

Rekha Bhardwaj November 19, 2012 at 12:56 pm

I have very normal skin…
I am using Bath And Body Works Malibu Heat Body Lotion.
I bet if you use it once, people will ask you which perfume you are using as it smells just amazing!!!!!!
Apart from that I use Garnier Body Cocoon.

Bad Experience has been Lakme Perfect Radiance Day Cream… Its just so thick and make my face awfully white and patchy.. :(


Aru November 19, 2012 at 1:20 pm

I have regular skin. My favourites will have to be the Vaseline one and the recent purchase from Marks&Spencer – The Pomegranite one.


Triya November 19, 2012 at 1:24 pm

only had good experience–

TBS Strawberry Body Lotion
TBS Passion Fruit Body Butter
and the one which never lets me down – Vaesline! :)


Aru November 19, 2012 at 1:34 pm

btw, dont know how feasible this is but a run down on the IMBB’s best and worst this year in terms of skincare, makeup etc would also be good :)


kavita November 19, 2012 at 1:55 pm

my skin is normal to dry love using TBS spiced vanilla butter,Vaselline Cocoa lotion..worst is jovees body lotion did nothing..


Misha November 19, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Misha November 19, 2012 at 2:00 pm

worst was Bath&Body Works Amethyst body cream….it doesn’t moisturize at all …within 4 hours my skin felt super dry :(


Neha Padhi November 19, 2012 at 2:41 pm

I have normal skin which turns dry in best-vaseline cocoa body lotion,worst-nivea whitening(no moisturisation at all)


Shachi Mody November 19, 2012 at 3:11 pm

For Body:
Nivea body lotion works well
Vaseline Cocoa Butter

Vaseline Jelly for Heels
TBS Cocoa Butter for Hands and feet

TBS Tea Tree Oil or
Lotus Herbals Aloe Vera Moisturiser


for the love of life November 19, 2012 at 4:21 pm

I have normal to dry skin –
For summer’s TBS Sweet Lemon whip body lotion, Vaseline healthy white, yardly English lavender moisturizing lotion. All the three leave beautifully fragranced, non sticky, moisturized skin.
For winter’s TBS Shea butter lotion, Dove indulgent moisturizing Shea body lotion, TBS peppermint cooling foot lotion for dry, cracked feet. Dove can feel a little thick on application, but once absorbed they stay moisturized for hours. :)


for the love of life November 19, 2012 at 4:23 pm

On the wish list Vaseline cocoa body lotion. So many hits for it on imbb!


raga November 19, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Kalyani November 19, 2012 at 4:51 pm

I have normal to oily skin….
Thumbs up:
For Face : Sebamed clear face care gel and Vicco both do wonders….
For Body : Ayur, TBS and Derma 10 Body Butters
