My Top 10 Lotions

Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy recently realized that he had lots of different types of body lotions and joint creams. I even had fix up a container just for my most frequently used items. So, I thought that today I would share the top ten products that I enjoy using the most. If you have your own favorite product that is not included here, please do share!

I have not received any compensation, financial or otherwise, from any of the companies whose products are included in this list.

    Thanks for the mentioning the foot creams. I have such a problem with cracked heels…

    I also recommend “Freeze It” for painful joints!

    Olay Quench works good for all day hydration, smells good too! Also, the Shea Butter cream by L’Occitaine-THE BEST! I will try your suggestions too, thank you!

    Found one that actually works even for RA as long as you apply often. It’s called RealTime Pain Relief. Not just a menthol that cools the nerve endings. It’s homeopathic & has 12 natural ingredients so it’s very theraputic.
    I won’t hide this…Like it so much..I’m selling it now . Order a trial http://topical-pain-relief.info . PS— Smells wonderful too

  4. Marcia says:

    I love the Masada Foot Cream and swear by Biofreeze. May try the Peaceful Mt. gel (I’m a sucker for anything with peace and love in the name).

    It is a sad state of affairs, when we are excited about joint cream! Remember the days when a nice new tube of chapstick was the best thing ever! Now.. sadly we are mixing lotions to make our aching joints feel better.

  6. Lindsey says:

    Extra emollient night cream from Mary Kay. It’s a part of their satin hands collection but I use it on my dry spots, feet hands etc!

  7. Karen Austin says:

    I also use Aspercreme at times. Does anyone know where to buy the Natura Hortela E Gengibre Hidratante Corporal? The natura website doesn’t work for me :-(
