    I have a big gay request for information and opinion. Can someone give me advice on a good daily moisturizer that's reasonably priced and effective? I have a shaved head and therefore a lot of surface area to cover. Since I shower 2 - 3 times a day, I go through a lot of product.

    My dermatologist recommended Cetaphil, and it works great for me.

    Look in the shaving section at drug stores. Nivea, Neutrogena, and Loreal all make moisturizers for men that are about half the price of the similar products marketed towards women. About the only difference is the scents. It must be more difficult to sell this stuff to men.

    I use Nivea intense moisturizer but I heard that cocoa butter is amazing..I might actually try to that because I am looking for a new solution for my moisturizer too. I like Clinque stuff for men but its so expensive!

    Ah, so everyone else uses Cocoa butter too! To be honest, I thought it was just a few ppl that use it for everything.

    There are a great number of good, natural products now. Be sure and not forget around the eyes (a different product for this area). Apply moisturizer morning and night...........and while many of them are fine, just avoid the cheap dime store varieties while you make your choices.

    i do well, on my scalp, face and the rest of me, with walgreen's "refreshing aloe lotion".

    according to the label it "cools, soothes & hydreates..contains pro-vitamin B5 and cucumber extract".

    this time of the year i shower 2 to 4 times a day; shave my scalp daily...so i go thru a LOT of moisturizer.

    this stuff works just as well (for me) as the much more expensive stuff does.

    Palmers cocoa butter and Cetaphil are both great products and inexpensive. Lately I have been using VaniCream and love it. I live in Arizona where it is dry all the time and I use it once a day except in summer where I put it on in the morning and evening. You can get it with suntan lotion in it too.

    Pure Shea Butter. You can buy it cheaply on ebay. It will make your skin very very kissable. Better than cocoa butter.

    Google it and learn about this cheap, effective, safe moisturizer and all the other great things you can do with it.

    Then a sunscreen.

    I've had really good luck with Kiehl's -- which has a slightly minty scent, and isn't greasy. It's also has sunscreen #15.

    There are retail stores but I get mine from www.kiehls.com

    Anything C.O Bigelow - they make great products that work and for the most part you can find them at any Bath & Body Works or at C.O. Bigelow website, and they are affordable too. icon_smile.gif

    I agree. Raw shea butter is really good for your skin. Shower and put it on before bed.
