I noticed I was getting dry skin on my shins/legs. This doesn't lather up it goes from clear to white if you rub in hands before applying. It's like putting moisturiser on in the shower. I try not to rinse it all off. My skin is much improved after one week. I also put it on the backs of the top of my arms where I (like most women) get rough pimply like skin and it has smoothed my skin. Love this.
