My personal experience is that some bath oil (baby oil, or something fancier) is nice in the bath...but then I need to put my regular creams on right after the bath.
If I put baby oil on my body (straight) after the bath, as a kind of moisturizer, then I find that it ends up being drying. My skin doesn't stay as moist when I put straight baby oil on it, even when I layer my regular creams on top of it.
Just my personal experience. I'm sure you'll get lots of varying opinions [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/smile.gif
