Other than omitting fragrance, this body lotion is identical to Lubriderm's Men's 3-in-1 Lotion Light Fragrance. The "3-in-1" portion of this body lotion's name refers to Lubriderm's recommendation that it can be used on the face and body and as an after-shave. Sounds great, but, in fact, any moisturizer can be used this way, so it's not a big deal.
Lubriderm isn't breaking any new ground with this mineral oil–based body lotion, but its formula, while not the most exciting, is better than the majority of their other body lotions.
Typically, men's products are inferior to those marketed to women, but in this case Lubriderm is giving men an advantage with a formula that bests their products aimed at female consumers.
This body lotion contains an appreciable amount of vitamin E along with some standard but helpful ingredients for normal to dry skin. The inclusion of minerals may strike a chord with those caught up in the mineral craze, but regardless of gender, minerals aren't of much benefit to skin when applied topically.
- Inexpensive and a better formula than those Lubriderm typically offers.
- Despite a higher amount of antioxidants (i.e., higher than other Lubriderm moisturizers) and the inclusion of skin-conditioning panthenol, this isn't among the top body lotions at the drugstore (for men or women).
- Included minerals do not benefit skin when applied topically.
- The 3-in-1 selling point applies to any moisturizer.
Although this moisturizer claims to meet your dry skin's needs in a single bottle, it doesn't come through. For example, this product doesn't contain sunscreen, so you're not getting critical sun protection, and it doesn't offer other skin-enhancing benefits such as exfoliation, which can noticeably improve dryness. Guys, it takes more than a single bottle of any product to obtain and maintain healthy, younger-looking skin.
