This body lotion has a better formula for dry skin than most of the others from Lubriderm, but that's not saying much. Still, if you’re considering a body moisturizer from Lubriderm this is among their best. Shea and cocoa butter are part of this body lotion's name, and the amounts of each will likely impart some benefit to dry skin. The lack of sunscreen makes the "daily" portion of the product name misleading; this body lotion is best applied in the evening or, if used in the morning, follow with sunscreen on any exposed skin. This would earn a higher rating if it contained a better mix of antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients, though both shea and cocoa butter are sources of antioxidants, so this isn’t a bust in that regard.
- Contains a good mix of ingredients for dry skin
- Formula would be better with a broader range of antioxidants and the inclusion of cell-communicating ingredients.
- Lack of sunscreen makes the "daily" portion of the name misleading.

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.
