This is my go to lotion! I buy the big daddy, family size because I use it so much! This lotion is the only lotion I have found to combat dry skin! Thick or not it works!!! It works all day long I don't have to reapply over and over! I use it in the summer as well and it leaves a glow after use! You may have to rub it in a little but I don't mind bc I stay moisturized thoughout the day and I'm not ashy!!
