I use a lot of BBW body cremes, but I don't always want such a heavy scent. Is there a body creme/lotion you can recommend that is lightly scented that moisturizes well? I would prefer something that is affordable and can be bought at a drugstore, Target, etc. Thanks!

My favorite drugstore lotion is St. Ives Naturally Soothing lotion with Oatmeal and Shea Butter.
No scent that I can discern, and it doesn't feel greasy, etc.

My fave is aveeno active naturals pomegranate grapefruit. I don't think it's heavily scented like bbw.

My family loves the Olay Quench lotions. They seem to last very well, and just have a kind of general "lotion" scent that I like. If you don't want fragrance, the CeraVe cream comes in a tub and is very moisturizing. It's more a "just business" kind of thing for me, though, and doesn't give me the same little luxury feeling the Quench does.

I need more of a life, I think.

It's hard to find but I know you can get it at Amazon and VitaminShoppe, but Nubian Heritage Olive Oil and Green Tea is excellent. Super moisturizing and doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy. It has a very neutral/natural smell to it so it's not that girly fru-fru smell.

I like plain old Vaseline brand. Everyone in my family keeps buying me bath and body works stuff. I like (some of) the scents, but they actually make my skin feel gross, almost like it's drying my skin out rather than moisturizing. So, I just buy regular Vaseline brand lotion.

Ever get the feeling your stuff strutted off without you?

I used to be a consultant for Perfectly Posh and am still a dedicated user. Their products are not full of paraben fillers and other junk that is not good for your skin. I learned a lot during my time with them. Reading ingredients is the best thing you can do for your skin!
It makes no sense to try to moisturize your skin by putting products on it that are full of sulfates and alcohols, which strip.

I just love Costco's Kirkland body lotion. It is all natural and unscented. DH has REALLY sensitive skin and he likes it better than the Aveeno I had been buying.

The only negative? Trying to open it for the first use. I think we had a whole thread on it - LOL.

Curel. Has a very light scent and just the right amount of moisture IMO.

I can't use B&BW lotions. They are too highly scented and make me itch.

I love Aveeno's "Positively Nourishing Comforting Whipped Souffle" :

Aveeno Whipped Souffle

It is light, without being too light, nor is it greasy feeling. The scent is light and wonderful, yet it doesn't linger very long.

My very favorite is Suave Advanced Therapy. It moisturizes very well and completely soaks in so I never feel it on my skin (hands especially). And it's super cheap!

I love Body Shop's Body Butter, but most of them have a scent -- I think the shea doesn't. Also Eucerin in the big tube.

Cerave. I get it at a local drugstore, but I think that Costco carries it too. You may have to ask them in the pharmacy.

I love this stuff. My dermatologist recommended it a few years ago and it is great. Very moisturizing, fragrance-free, and soaks in quickly so nothing sticky left on your skin.

ASTOUNDED to be here again!

I use Curel or a goats milk lotion at night, but for daytime use I use Vaseline Intensive Care. It's light, is absorbed quickly, and isn't greasy or sticky feeling.

Yep I bought the coconut body cream.

I am a fan of aveeno, the daily moisturizer active naturals colloidal oatmeal. It's my favorite and they carry it at costco so it's a win win.
