I love winter, except our area really doesn’t get too cold. Our idea of cold is 30 degrees, and everyone I know usually freaks out, except a few such as myself. With colder temperature my skin (like everyone else’s) always needs a little help. My skin only gets dry in the winter. I am not a huge fan of anything that has a scent. I’m not sensitive to scents, I wear perfume and I want that to be what I smell not a lotion. I find it quite hard to find a lotion that doesn’t have an overwhelming scent but also a lotion that won’t feel oily or make it oilier than it already is, rather oilier than it need to be. These are a few of my favorite lotions that have helped my skin.
L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Lotion: This is lotion goes on light. There is hardly a smell to this lotion. It is quite pricey compared to other lotions I’ve seen but if you feel like splurging this would be a good treat.
Bliss Lemon+Sage Body Butter Maximum Moisture Cream: It smells like a spa. Need I say more? It’s one of the few lotions that I can wear alone.
First Aid Beauty, Ultra Repair Cream: I’ve talked about this product quite often, but since this is a post about moisture I’ll rave about it again. First Aid Beauty is known for their products being suitable for sensitive skin and I find that to be true. I have used this product just about every day. It has a very faint smell; I can nearly say it has no smell at all.
The Body Shop, Shea Body Butter: I’ve heard people rave about Body Shop products but I can’t get pass the smell of most of them. They stink! They have a horrible smell to them. Am I the only one who thinks this? Out of all of them this one smelled somewhat better. Despite the smell it works really well. **cringe** I have to admit, I thought this would go on very heavy but it really doesn’t. It does its job and the smell doesn’t linger too long. I use this a night on my legs because they were looking pretty bad and after a couple of uses, they looked like legs again. I don’t care for the packaging because the lotion can get in my nails but I am willing to over look that.
Bath & Body Works, Merry Marshmallow: I’m not sure if this is still in stock or if it even came out this year (since I am unfamiliar with Bath and Body in general); but this smells…. yummy.
Peter Thomas Roth Mega-Rich Body Lotion: Yes, this is a pricey lotion but it works like magic. If I could afford to use this all the time I would. Out of all the lotions this is my favorite. It works really quickly to combat the dryness.
L'Occitane Hand Cream, Shea Butter + Pivoine Flora: The Shea Butter hand cream is always in my purse. It’s a thick hand cream, so a little goes a long way. The Pivoine Flora smells like roses. If you like roses this hand cream is for you.
L'Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream: Let’s not forget the feet. This is just like the hand cream in every way except for feet. It has the same consistency and smell of the hand lotion.
