    "Hi ladies! As a skincare enthusiast, I recommend trying out a body lotion that is oil-free and non-comedogenic. First reason: When it's summer, you don't want a greasy feeling so make sure it's oil free. Second reason: Just in case you put the lotion on your face, it wont clog pores bcos it's non-comedogenic. Hence, I highly suggest CeraVe!"

    "Not really fond of the strong smell of some lotions so this is my go-to lotion. No strong smell as this is fragrance-free. I heard this is also good for eczema. Is it recommended by a dermatologist? Please advise. Thanks!"

    "Compared to the other brands listed here, in terms of their price point, I would go for this one. Why would I buy something more expensive when I can get the same benefit from a less than $10 lotion? The best thing about this is it doesn't feel greasy upon application. The shea butter i believe is an effective moisturizing ingredient."

    "Don't ever forget your daily spf and suncreen. When you are going to the beach this summer I recommend this Kiehl's water-based sunscreen. Layer it with another lotion. The technique is, start from the product with the thinnest consistency. So from water-based to cream time."
