My legs look leopardy and dry. What is the best moistuizer that will soften,smooth out and make my legs glow instead of looking dull??? They look this way even without tanner on, but the tanner does enhance the lines/splotchy look. Please help. How do I get the hydrated? I don't like any of the oil of olay cream/oil body washes. thanks

Its kinda pricey but I use dermalogica's body lotion (w/AHA) or dermalogica's ultra body lotion.
Whatgreatskin.com is the cheapest place i found them available.

I really love Dove Cream Oil. I know you said that you don't really like stuff like that but trust me it works. It also has a great smell as well.

I was going to mention exfoliating!!! I use an exfoliating hydro towel. Jergens makes a great moisturizing body wash. be sure yo rinse well before using self tanner because extra oils will leave blotchy marks on your legs!

Soap and Glory sugar scrub?? I know it's not a moisturiser but it does work wonders. It smells like sweets too!!

I know you don't oily stuff but right when I finish taking a shower i put baby oil while my skin is still wet and pat myself dry with a towel. I then use Johnson's baby oil lotion. I have oily skin and this is literally the only stuff that gives my legs a natural sheen without feeling or looking oily and mind you I really hate anything oily (I have oily face and hair, gross)

You can also melt it with sweet almond oil to make it a bit more spreadable.

Yep, exfoliate to get rid of dead skin and smooth out any rough skin and then moisturize to keep skin soft and smooth. Try a exfoliater that is oil based (like The Body Shop's Aromatherapy Uplifting Salt Scrub). They tend to be more expensive but would definately be more smoothing for your skin. Finish with a moisturizing moisturizer like The Body Shop's Shea Body Butter. If you worry about oiliness or stickyness of moisturizers that are too thick, wear a pair of tights/long pants so that the moisturizer won't transfer to your bed sheets at night. I use socks when I apply vasaline on my dry feet at night.

I highly recommend using Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme. Buy Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme Online at drugstore.com

It has a light but nice smell, and makes me feel moisturized for most of the day.
