  16. seems like i’m really going to have to buy the vaseline cocoa body lotion! πŸ™‚
    for me,the best was Nivea express hydration…

  17. 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.. πŸ™

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

  19. only had good experience–

    TBS Strawberry Body Lotion
    TBS Passion Fruit Body Butter
    and the one which never lets me down – Vaesline! πŸ™‚

  20. 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 πŸ™‚

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

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

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

  23. I have normal skin which gets quite dry in winters..
    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

  24. 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. πŸ™‚

  25. i have combination skin, oily on tzone, acne prone..for me vaseline healthy white works superb on my skin..haven’t tried the worst πŸ˜›

  26. 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
    Oriflame does nothing as always….
    BTW… Do not use Vaseline petroleum jelly on lips, dark kar deta hai… tried and tested by me and many people around…..

  27. Good:
    Vaseline cocoa butter lotion
    Lotus aloe vera body lotion
    TBS shea butter lotion

    TBS love etc body lotion

    I have dry dry dry skin 😐

  28. normal skin
    nivea hydra……. light but moisturizing
    what i dont like … vasline lotions they never seem to moisturise well

  29. my skin is normal during summers and dry in winters
    the best would be lotus aloesoft lotion in summers and nivea happy time for very dry skin in winters
    worst is vaseline healthy white
