Do they not let you have lotion in the marines? I don't understand why you couldn't keep a tube of it in your duffel bag or locker or whatever they give you and swipe some on every now and then. Unless you're worried about other marines thinking you're effeminate. I am puzzled.

for one thing they take/ check all your stuff when your first get there, they only let you keep a little bit of money, plus even if they did let you take some i wouldnt be caught dead putting it on because if a DI (drill instructor) saw me they would kill me for hours, plus they would probably make fun of me for the rest of my time there, no thanks...alls i want to know is some peoples results after accutain in regards to the dry skin and redness

After a month my friend said he only had to moisturize like once every 3-4 days... He still needed chapstick for the following 3 months tho..
