Re: Difference between body cream and body lotion?

|I would say - do a body cream after a shower, and lotion during the day.
That always seems like a good thing, not sure why haha! I hardly need a cream, because my skin is pretty moisturized itself. But on occasion, I use it when I really feel dry (usually in the winter time).
Moisturizers are supposed to be applied after the shower, since the skin is softer and it gets absorbed. On dry skin the absorption is almost none.
The difference between creams and creamy lotions, when it comes to dermatologic applications (like topical remedies) the creams are indicated when the area is smaller, and lotions when it's a big area to be covered.
But when it comes to moisturizers , i also prefer creams! I just loove the thickness of them
