I usually avoid lotions or creams with cones in them ever since I started CG, because I figured if they suffocate my hair, they're probably suffocating my skin. And I did notice that when I use a lotion with dimethicone or the such, that it does feel like it's coating my skin with a waxy feel. But at the same time I still use them when it's a scented lotion I really like, like some of the B&BW lotions. I don't feel like I'm really moisturizing my skin with them in the way I do with LUSH creams or lotions, and they do feel like they're just sitting on my skin and not absorbing through like a true moisturizing one would, but again it goes back to the lovely scents drawing me in.
