This comes from the "where has it been all my life?" department. The humble looking tube of Jason Natural Cosmetics Soothing 84% Aloe Vera Hand & Body Lotion has been saving my arms and legs lately, helping me deal with everything from abrasive products, mosquito bites, and rawness due to over-swatching (and removing of said swatches). It's brilliant, really: I've always been a heavy user of pure aloe vera gel, but the texture of the raw thing is on the sticky side. A good lotion that spreads easily and sinks into the skin quickly is a much more practical solution for hands and limbs, and that's what I get from Jason.
An 84% aloe vera content is a wonderful percentage that makes a real difference for used and abused dry skin such as mine. I've been applying this Jason lotion after washing and scrubbing my hands, when carrying a heavy shopping nag left the skin on my right arm dry, raw, and flaking, and-- as I mentioned above--between and after swatching makeup on my arm. The lotion soothes upon contact, moisturizes, and leaves the skin feeling softer and healthier. It's not a substitute for the heavy nourishing I need (that's what shea butter and body oils are for), but it solves a particular problem that I deal with every single day.
