I have been using this moisturizer on my hands and other very dry spots (elbows, legs, around my nose and mouth). I have been trying to get my mate to use it on his very dry winter skin/eczema spots on his body. It seems to be helping (for when he remembers to use it). I had one spot of flaky eczema and it seems to be helping (applying a few times a day to the spot), but it isn't completely gone yet. I haven't had dry, cracked hands yet this winter, and I've been using this a few times a day on them (before bed, before going out, after washing dishes). This lotion doesn't leave a greasy or slimy feeling, it absorbs well and leaves my skin soft. At first, I thought the bottle seemed small, but it has been a few months and it isn't empty yet. The only thing I don't love about it is that even though it is unscented, it has an "unscented lotion" smell. A slightly oily smell that sometimes reminds me of the smell of raw egg whites, but it is very mild! I tend to notice smells that most people don't. Otherwise, this is a great moisturizer for very dry skin.

Shikai Borage Dry Skin Therapy was okay. It wasn't great and it wasn't bad. It does go on thick and heavy, feeling like it sits on the skin as a barrier to keep moisture in and the elements out of your skin. It has a "dull" scent which means there is no perfume-like scent, but it is not without scent. I have dry skin (even in the warm summer) and eczema, so have tried a lot of different moisturizing products. Based on my experience, this product is average. I prefer the Aveeno line because it protects my skin longer and goes on a bit smoother.

Best lotion ever!

By MamaBear

from Pittsburgh, PA

Pros

  • Absorbs Quickly
  • Goes On Smoothly
  • Long Lasting
  • Moisturizes Well
  • Not Greasy
  • Softens Skin

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Deep Moisturization

    Comments about ShiKai Borage Therapy Dry Skin Lotion, Original Unscented, 8 fl oz:

    I never really write product reviews, but this product is amazing! My hands get so dry and my skin cracks in the winter and this winter has been the worst. This lotion does not sit on your skin like a greasy silicone glove and wash right off when you wash your hands, like most other even moderately effective products. It absorbs quickly and actually heals your skin from the inside out. I literally went from dry, cracked hands to smooth, supple skin in 48 hours by using this product.

      Comments about ShiKai Borage Therapy Dry Skin Lotion, Original Unscented, 8 fl oz:

      I have to note that even though it says Unscented I do detect some sort of a smell to the product. It's not an absurd smell that lingers but it's very subtle so it doesn't bother me.

      It moisturizes well and is not greasy at all. It absorbs quickly and isn't thick.

        Comments about ShiKai Borage Therapy Dry Skin Lotion, Original Unscented, 8 fl oz:

        I have struggled with adult onset eczema for years and have tried every lotion under the sun. This is the only thing I will use. I doesn't smell and I put it on religiously after showering, sometimes also before bed during the winter months. Nothing else, including prescription creams has done more to keep my eczema at bay. Now, when my 6 month old baby started showing signs of dry patches on his skin I started using this on him after his bath and the spots disappeared. So much better than the other baby lotions on the market that have drying ingredients like alcohol in them! If this product ever disappears I don't know what I'd do! I only wish it was cheaper since I go through so much of it, but its worth it to me.

          Comments about ShiKai Borage Therapy Dry Skin Lotion, Original Unscented, 8 fl oz:

          I received a sample of this and tried it when I had an unexplainable rash. I had tried my high-end moisturizers but they didn't do much for my irritated skin. When I applied this lotion, it was very soothing. It wasn't greasy feeling and moisturized my skin. After a few days of using it, my skin felt healthier. I still use this lotion, especially when I get itchy skin in the wintertime. I gave a bottle to a co-worker who was under-going chemotherapy and she was complaining of painfully dry, cracked skin. She loved it! It was the first lotion she had tried that didn't irritate her tender skin and also moisturized/healed her skin.

            Comments about ShiKai Borage Therapy Dry Skin Lotion, Original Unscented, 8 fl oz:

            This is the only cream that cure the eczema I get my hands from winter and excessive washing. Not even prescription steroid ointments work as well. But this lotion is not greasy or heavy, I can use it as an all over body lotion after showers too, and I use it my kids in winter for eczema as well.

              Comments about ShiKai Borage Therapy Dry Skin Lotion, Original Unscented, 8 fl oz:

              I first purchased a small trial size of this at a health food grocery chain for my dry wintery hands. I admit that I was a bit skeptical since it seems like an all-natural product. Wow, I'm so glad I tried it. This stuff works better than the national brand I was buying at the drugstore. And I feel good knowing I'm putting a more natural product on my skin.

              It definitely isn't greasy or sticky, once it dries. In fact, I can't even tell it's there at all, except that it completely comforts my dry skin. My hands feel nice and soft too. Great product.

                I have used 2 bottles of this and like it. Bought it for dry skin that itched. However, I just tried Burt's Bee's Milk and Honey body lotion and love it! It works better for itching than this Skikai body lotion.
