Udderly Smooth Lotion, Hand and Body Cream Review
Developed in Salem, Ohio by registered pharmacist Bill Kennedy, the made in the USA lotions and creams have been a family tradition for three generations. This family business makes lotions and creams that originally were meant for dairy cattle. They ended up being so good, they started using them for humans too. All Udderly Smooth products are rich and creamy and perfect for the dry chapped skin we get in the winter!
An Udderly Huge Sampling of Goodies!
Body lotions and Creams
The hand and body lotion with Aloe and Vitamin E is great. It almost feels greasy, and is a bit runny, but soaks in super quick and does not leave your hands feeling greasy at all! A little bit goes a LONG way! The body cream is much thicker; more like a body butter. It is luxuriously smooth and creamy. It too does not seem to linger on the surface very long, it gets soaked right in. I moisturize regularly and it still soaks in and leaves my skin very soft. The cream does not have much of a scent, which is okay. The aloe one has a light fresh scent. Now any of these are okay to use pretty much anywhere you need moisturization.
What’s great is that these Udderly Smooth formulas plus their Extra Care 20 are recommended for use to oncology patients. Patients going through chemo and/or radiation can use the unscented creams to take care of their damaged skin. They also contain urea to help combat hand-foot syndrome which often plagues patients going through these treatments.
Lotions and Creams for Hands and Feet
There are so many hand creams! It’s hard to decide which one to use. The original formula is a bit thicker than the other three and is unscented like the body cream. I’m saving the Aloe and Vitamin E cream for summer, so help sooth those inevitable summer sunburns. The Shea Butter cream is super hydrating. I put some on my hands that felt ashy and dry and they felt great the whole rest of the day. The Vitamin E is great around the cuticles for my hangnails that appear in winter. The three additional formulas all have a light scent, but nothing strong or overpowering.
The foot cream is thick and slick. I even did the “slide test” with it. I have hardwood floors, but my feet are in desperate need of care. So I rub on some foot cream. And I immediately walk across the floor. NO slide! It soaks right in like the rest of the formulas! It also contains Shea Butter so it’s also super hydrating. I’ve been applying it a couple times a day in addition to exfoliating with a pumice stone, and my feet are in great condition now.
I cannot wait to hand out samples to my friends and family. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t complain at some point of dry winter skin. So far my skin is staying soft and supple, thanks to these lotions and creams. The ingredients lists are all short and to the point. I’m a little disappointed to see parabens still being used in them, I assume as preservatives. These days there are so many healthier ways of adding preservatives, but maybe they don’t work in this established formula. That said, they are at the end of the ingredients list and so not very much of them are in the creams.
If you want a soothing, hydrating, and nourishing lotion and cream that your whole family can use, you really can’t go wrong with Udderly Smooth. They are pleasant to use. They soak in quick and leave no oily residue. And my skin looks and feels great.
