I have severely dry skin, and honestly there aren’t too many moisturizers that make me feel hydrated and non-greasy. It really seems like – with most lotions and oils – if you want long-term hydration, that almost always equals greasy feel. So, I live most of my life without lotion for my hands (I’m still searching for the right one), and I use this DIY olive oil scrub for the rest of my body. Yes, including my face. My skin absorbs the olive oil much better than any other food+cosmetic oil, like coconut or almond.
I hope you love this stuff. It’s inexpensive and lasts a very long time. You don’t need very much to hydrate your whole body.
If you’ve got a line on a really great hand moisturizer, let me know.
