i used the johnsons lotion but i cant stand the smell of it i find it quite strong. i now use he dove lotion and it is better smelling and it goes on awsome..no streaking. i notice the difference within 2-3 days. i exfoliate every 2nd day in the shower with a scrub showr lotion & a sponge. i also apply dove lotion with a smidge of baby oil makes for better smoother application & no streaks whatso ever.
