As soon as the weather changes a bit colder, my skin longs for the extra hydration. For this reason, and the fact that I love to try new lotions, potions and the like; I am always on the hunt for a winter skin savior to soothe my super dry skin.
So far this year, I am loving the new Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter that I told you about last week. In addition to that, I have been smoothing this new dream body oil from Clarins over my body after taking a bath, a few times a week.
Clarins Huile “Tonic” Oil is composed of 100% natural plant extracts and aromatic essential oils. I like to rub it over my skin while I am still wet and then pat dry off. It locks in moisture and leaves my skin silky soft, never greasy, with the wonderful light scent.
I asked my Twitter friends what they use in the winter for their dry skin. Here is what a few of them told me.
@15minbeauty, who is Christine from 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic said: “Cetaphil cream, hands down. It’s so thick and moisturizing. I’ve looked for an alternative, but nothing works as well.”
@1andonlyMelissa said: “Body butter/ hands down is insane. Im a product junkie n its best. Hand cream? I found BoEssentials store aftr a fam reunion n VA. Stumbld on Mistral handcream in boutique/FrenchQtr. Best accdntl finds!”
@karlaneese said: “I love Curel Intense Healing.”
@oldergirlbeauty, who is Paula from Older Girl Beauty said: “I slather on @MarioBadescu Super Rich Olive Body Lotion. Soaks right in & takes away my itchy’s!”
@LondonMUgirl from London Makeup Girl said: “Haus of Gloi Pumpkin Butter.”
@BeautyAlchemist, who is Diane from The Beauty Alchemist said: “Mine= Kiehl’s Imperial Body Balm. Major moisture, smoothing and smells amazing.”
I plan to explore these new suggestions, plus many more. I will continue to bring you my thoughts on the better ones that keep my dry winter skin hydrated.
Now it’s your turn. What is your go-to body cream for the winter?
