I actually prefer to use a solid moisturizer rather than a cream. You can get them now at organic stores, and special homemade soap stores.
They usually last longer, and are made from more natural ingredients (depending on where you get them) and they are easier to travel with. Plus you know you've done a good thing because they don't need the packaging that creams and emulsions do.
As an added bonus, they can usually be used as an impromptu massage bar if you need one.
