The only reason this body lotion is suitable for sensitive skin is because it doesn't contain fragrance, but in this case merely omitting the fragrance is not enough! As is, using this product means that sensitive, dry skin will miss out on soothing and skin-repairing ingredients that help improve its surface and reduce signs of sensitivity and irritation.
This light-textured but still emollient body lotion is a basic, dated formula that doesn't warrant even mild enthusiasm. Also, the lack of sunscreen means this is not suitable for daytime use on exposed skin. Please see our list of Best Body-Care Products for superior body lotions.
- Basic, dated formula fails to provide sensitive skin with the ingredients it needs to become less sensitive and healthier.
- Lacks antioxidants, soothing agents, and skin-repairing ingredients that research has shown help all skin types improve and thrive.

Among body lotion brands, Lubriderm is recognizable at drugstores and grocery stores around the world. Unfortunately, most of their formulas are about as exciting as watching grass grow! Instead of providing dry, itchy skin with a range of state-of-the-art ingredients proven to offer lasting benefits, Lubriderm stops short at the basics, with formulas that echo back to the 1960s.
What Lubriderm leaves out are the ingredients that would supply your skin with a healthy dose of antioxidants, skin-repairing ingredients, or cell-communicating ingredients. All these types of ingredients can actually "repair" skin, not just put a Band-Aid® on the problem of dry skin.
Lubriderm products are not bad, but it's like using a typewriter instead of a computer. Simply put, science has advanced skin care far beyond what Lubriderm formulas provide.
Lubriderm's price point is attractive, but saving money isn't always the end game. Besides, there are other inexpensive brands whose impressive body moisturizer formulas mean you don’t have to settle for less. At the drugstore, check out the options from CeraVe, Olay, and St. Ives or online from Paula's Choice for stellar inexpensive examples. Actually, the previously mentioned are some of the best examples around because even the expensive body products often omit the advanced ingredients.
