Is it cold where you live? In Kansas City it’s 20 degrees one day and 50 the next! Crazy, but it has been fairly dry. So my skin and hair are dry, too!
I have been sent some amazing products for my honest review. The following products are my current favorites for hydration.
Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer ($10.99 USD) — This lotion is an easy, yet effective way to calm, smooth, soften and heal dry, flaky skin. The formula’s water-activated properties work to penetrate deep into skin’s surface all while in the shower – no rinsing required – so you can just dry off, dress and go! When applied daily, it helps heal dry skin and restore the body’s ability to retain its own much-needed moisture with the use of its revolutionary wet skin technology from:
- a breakthrough water-activated formula
- a propriety ceramide complex which helps replenish and fortify the skin’s natural moisture barrier
- two soothing and restorative ingredients — allantoin and panthenol
- cationic technology that binds together the positive charge of the moisturizer’s innovative ingredients with the negative charge of moist skin.
What I think: Wet skin moisturizers are so cool, but take some getting used to, especially drying off with lotion. But afterwards, my skin is so soft. This one is really nice, it leaves my skin so soft and smooth, especially in the cold, dry air.
