Curel Ultra Healing Lotion, 20 Ounce

Ceramides are naturally found in skin’s vulnerable outer layer and help skin retain moisture. When skin’s ceramide levels are low, skin hasdifficulty retaining moisture. While traditional lotions only hydrate skins surface, Curél moisturizers work at the source of dryness to help replenish skin’s ceramide levels, not just releiving symptoms, but actually, over time, preventing symptoms from recurring.

Key features

  • Heals skin’s moisture barrier so that skin can better lock-in and maintain moisture over time
  • Protects skin from dryness for over 24 hours
  • Extra-strength hydrating agents provide instant relief
  • Non-greasy and won’t clog pores
  • Dermatologist recommended

Honest reviews


Great lotion

I love this lotion for my extra dry skin. I gave four stars because it states that it “helps heal and protect extra-dry skin”. I have been using this lotion for months now and I do not feel like any healing has taken place. It moisturizes my skin for the day or my hands in between washes. Nevertheless, it is a great lotion option for regular use – just do not expect healing as this product claims.

I find this lotion sticky after it’s applied, even if I’ve rubbed it in well. It is gentle enough for me to use everywhere, even on my face and on my legs after shaving, and it lasts on my hands after washing them. The lotion has a faint orange smell that’s not unpleasant. I will probably use the rest of the bottle I have since it’s moisturizing enough for winter time, but I probably wouldn’t buy it again because of the sticky residue.

The Best

All classic Curel lotions (including Ultra Healing) are more like cream than lotion. When you put it on your skin, you can feel the hydration right away and you don’t need to put a lot. Other newer formulas tend to be more like watered down versions. I like both Original and Ultra Healing but I prefer Ultra Healing a little bit more.

From head to toe

I have a couple of these around the house. It’s the best lotion I’ve found that does not make me break out and is very hydrating. I’m extremely careful about what I apply on my face, specifically in the chin area because that is where I am most sensitive — If I’m going to break out, that is the spot.It’s listed on the back that it will “not clog pores” and is “gentle enough to use on face”. It absorbs quickly and has been my go to lotion for years now. It barely has a scent just a hint of orange oil if you really concentrate. My boyfriend is happy to use it because it’s not a girly product, its just straight basic lotion. I dab it on my nails to soften cuticles, apply it to a blemish and find its soothing and takes the red out. Slather it on your feet and put on some socks. This stuff is multi purpose and my absolute favorite.

Great for sensitive skin

I use this on my sensitive, oily-prone skin-face and body. Never have had a bad reaction. With a faint hint of natural orange fragrance, it’s pleasant and not sticky–absorbs quickly, yet is very moisturizing. A little goes a long way.

Finally – a daily lotion I will buy again!

I’ve tried so many body lotions over the years, I’ve lost count. Every time I finished the bottle, I’d buy a different kind because it either smelled bad, smelled too much, was too greasy…didn’t moisturize enough…or…ad nauseum.Recently, I stumbled on this particular offering from Curel. For some reason, this one clicked. Finally – a keeper! Moisturizes nicely on my legs, hands, and arms, sinks in pretty quickly, and has no greasy feel. You don’t need much – it lasts a long time!Also (and this is BIG for me)– I’m very sensitive to most scents and use them not at all or quite sparingly – and I really like the smell of this stuff. It has a VERY light scent reminiscent of something almost lemony when first applied, then fades gently away. If you’re like me and react to creams, potions, and lotions with overly heavy perfumes which linger far too long (some stuff has actually triggered headaches and nausea), this may be worth trying.For the first time ever, I actually will buy another bottle of the same lotion when it runs out!

good moisturizer without being greasy

I have very dry skin, so Curel is my go-to body lotion after every shower. It eases the tightness, with no residue. I also use it for my hands all day after washing.

Curel one of the best

Curel body lotions one of the very best (at least within my price range). Good value; use less to accomplish more. Good feel on skin, not greasy.

Decreased drying without greasy residue

God forbid there be a skin moisturizer out there that I have not tried. Over the past 3years illness and multiple meds have made my skin drier than the Mojave. I had been using Aveeno 24 hour for the past year and been satisfied but not bowled over with its performance. I must say the same for my first foray into Curel. The best part of the purchase is my first use of an Amazon coupon along with free shipping really appealed to the shopper in me.

Good Lotion

This lotion makes your skin feel really soft. It is a very good product. I alternate between this product and Jergens Ultra Healing. I would recommend this lotion.

curel ultra healing

This lotion is excellent for dry skin even on the feet. Amazing difference after just one use. Recommended for my face by my dermatologist for very dry skin. Wonderful product, lightly scented that disapates very fast. Have allergies to fragrance and this one doesn’t bother me.
