Which body wash keeps your skin soft throughout the dry winter?
I don't use a body wash per se so I think I'll leave that part to the ladies. I do, however, get dreadfully dry skin in the winter. To remedy that, I just slap on the 'ol baby oil before I dress and it keeps my skin soft, smooth and hydrated all day - and well into the night...which isn't a bad thing when the wife wants to get all cuddly. :)
I really like the new Dove exfoliating body wash because it leave my skin feeling great, also I like the Dove exfoliating bar soap. After I shower and after a quick dry so there is still some moisture on my skin I spritz L'oreal HydraFresh all over and it absorbs really well and keeps my skin soft all day and it has a nice scent also. Its a lot quicker then a regular lotion and very light not greasy at all.
I use Dove "regular" and don't have dry skin issues.
Jenny, what is in the HydraFresh? Oil? My husband is the one with issues and this might be good for him.
Love baby oil, too. Last step of my shower is to slather it on, then I towel dry it off. Been doing that since I was 7, because my parents insisted we lotion up after showering and it saved time for me to do it right in the shower. Glad I did it because today (years later) massage therapists have remarked on how smooth my skin is.
Weed HydraFresh is a spray on lotion its made by L'oreal and comes in a green bottle and is part of the Body Expertise line. I don't believe there is any oil in it and none of the ingredients sounds like oils! The back of the bottle says...
Enriched with vitamins E and B5, HYDRAFRESH spray enables your skin to maintain a lasting natural level of hydration.
Infused with vitamin C HYDRAFRESH invigorates your skin
From the first application, your skin is refreshed and moisturized for 24 hours
I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions about it! I use the Dove exfoliating body wash or bar soap every day or the Body Expertise body scrub about once a week and always follow with this lotion and it has worked great in preventing dry skin from ever happening.
The Shi Kai brand (at health food stores or Whole Foods Market) and Oil of Olay's "Complete" Body Wash are the best moisturizing shower gels.
JennyIL, I got some of the Hydrafresh today. There was a deal at Walgreens, buy the Hydrafresh and get a free bottle of lotion from that line. Seems pretty good and easy to use!
Jenny, I like it! I jinxed myself by posting at all, and suddenly my back was itchy and dry. I spritzed some on after my shower -- very nice. Thanks for the tip!
