    If you’re looking for a moisturiser I would strongly advise the blue Nivea one (not the standard metal tin, the one actually meant for body, you will see it on the shelves) or Molton Brown’s body moisturisers, I’d marry them to my skin if I could.

  2. @Rhamnousia – I have the thick tin type one which I’ve always kept handy during winter. My problem is I’m a total lazy arse with body moisturisers. I love the smell of ’em and buy them but can never be bothered to apply. I’m getting into those Oil ones though that you spray or smear on after a shower. Lo-maintenance moisturising is the future!
