Every winter I think — uch this cold weather, it makes my skin so dry! — then every summer I think the exact same think about the heat! Needless to say, the majority of my body care products are body moisturizers so, like shampoos and conditioners, I like to mix things-up when it comes to my moisturizers. Always a favorite though is L’Occitane’s Amande Firming & Soothing Milk Concentrate ($38). There is nothing that smells quiet as delicious (you’ll litterally smell the fresh almond scent through the packaging!). I just tried Curel’s Natural Healing Nourishing Lotion however and it’s pretty great too (and at $2.99-$9.99 depending on the size, it’s significantly cheaper). I was attracted by the ingredients which include lavender, chamomile, and oatmeal extracts, so I wasn’t surprised when I loved the smell — it has a just-got-out-of-the-shower soapy smell and it’s nice and greasy which I like. Unfortunately it doesn’t moisturize for as long as L’Occitane’s body cream and the packaging doesn’t exactly make me want to show it off in my bathroom (metallic blue, plastic), but for the price it’s better than most Neutrogena and Dove products I’ve tried (both of which don’t have the most appealing packaging either…though again at these prices, I cant really complain:)…).
Has anyone tried any other good moisturizers lately that would be worth trying out!?
