I have tried a lot of body creams/emollient creams to tackle the dryness I face but this is by far the best cream I have tried.My body is always dry and applying a body cream every day is a must for me even during summers.But it becomes severely dry and dehydrated during winters so normal body creams/lotions just wont suffice for me.I am so glad with this purchase.This is the only cream which has healed my dry and chapped skin in a very short time.I used two tubes of it in like 2 weeks and then bought the 500grams jar from Ebay India since I really loved it.I am sure it will last really long time,a little quantity is enough for moisturisation. Hydrofil is available in both lotion and creams versions. With respect to body moisturisers,I prefer creams over lotions.The formula is same,the only difference is consistency cream a bit thicker than lotion but does the same job of moisturizing.Since I started using this all other body creams have taken a back seat.I also use it as hand cream 2-3 times in a day which is also my problem area.I have used Glomed (5% Glycolic acid) Face wash,its one of the best face washes for oily-acne prone skin.Ethicare definitely leaves up to claims and their products definitely deliver.Overall loved it,totally worth it.If you face dryness and chapped skin like me,this product is definitely for you.
