For my body, I’ve been using the Soap & Glory Clean On Me body wash, which smells amazing, helps moisturize my skin, and even has a built-in body lotion. I’ve been using the EOS Shave Creams (both in Pomegranate Raspberry and Vanilla Bliss) and they’re so hydrating, almost like I’m shaving with a body lotion instead of a shave cream. To keep my body, specifically my legs, from getting itchy and dry, I always use a body butter from The Body Shop, especially right out of the shower. The Vitamin E and Almond body butters are my favorites for this season because the scents are so light and fresh, without being too perfume-y.
For my face, I have to have some Mario Badescu Rosewater + Aloe Facial Spray on hand at all times. I’ve found that this spray is super hydrating for my face, refreshing the skin and giving it added moisture. Whenever my skin is feeling a little dry or dull, I give my face a spritz or two and immediately feel refreshed. For lips, I switch between EOS lip balms (currently using the Coconut Milk balm) and a good old rosebud salve. I like the balms from EOS for every day use because they’re light but very effective, and tend to use the rose salve before bed or on days when my lips are extremely chapped.
And how can I write a moisturizing products post without mentioning a beloved hand cream (y’all know I’m obsessed with soft hands). My absolute favorite for these colder months is The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment. It’s such a thick and nourishing hand cream, yet dries completely for non-greasy, soft hands. A God-send, really – definitely one of my holy grail products of 2014.
