I don’t know about you, but my skin is in need of some major moisture post winter! Short sleeve weather is HERE, so I’ve been amping up the moisturizing products in my shower routine to get my skin ready to feel the sun! Sun! We had a thunderstorm today and I was SO EXCITED about that hahahaha! 😀 It was short and sweet, and nothing like a normal, scary, most-of-the-time Alberta thunderstorm though. It was…gentle I have to say? I don’t think I’ve experienced such a gentle and soothing storm before, but I liked it! MORE PLEASE Mama Nature!
I’ve been using these 2 new Dial body washes lately and loving them! Yeah, you heard right-DIAL. Who knew? Dial Frozen Yogurt Cooling Body Wash FroYo(can’t believed they called it that, but I can totally understand WHY) smells SO GOOD. And I’m not even a fruity, frozen yogurt loving gal! I’m a chocolate hound, through and through. If there’s something chocolate on the menu, it’s MINE. Screw the fruit. That’s my motto and I’ve lived by it for almost 30 years I swear. But this? It’s yummy! And making me actually question my chocolate allegiance. Am I missing on other yummy things for my tummy? I could be. But the pull of chocolate is strong Miyagi, and can’t be broken, at least not with a shower gel. YET. This has a refreshing tingle that gently cools skin on contact, so I’ve been loving it after I exercise! You need to try it for the tingle! And think of me when you feel that tingle…:D THAT wasn’t creepy, hey? HAHAHAHA.
The other Dial product I’ve been loving is the NEW Dial Vitamin Boost Body Wash. It has a moisturizing vitamin complex that draws vitamins and moisture directly to the surface of the skin for softness. It’s really creamy and feels like a thick moisturizer, yet lighter than a moisturizer? I don’t know, but TRUST me. It does leave you feeling clean, yet SUPPLE. There’s not a lot of shower gels that leave you feeling supple I tell ya’. And this smells like a tropical fun basket of kiwi and mango. And now, I’m hungry for some FRUIT. I only have grapes in the house. Apples are SCARY to buy in Canada these days. WOW. SO, so bad.
But I don’t stop the moisture train there people! Retain even more hydration when you follow your shower routine with new Dial Greek Yogurt 7 Day Moisturizing Lotion! This fast-absorbing, non-greasy lotion contains 7 bionutrients plus yogurt and honey extract gives me touchable skin, and promises to keep skin soft for up to 7 days! It’s THICK. Yet not too thick? It’s not like a body butter, but close. I know, I’m confusing these days, but I speak the truth! I AM the Lorax of cosmetics, I SWEAR ahahaha! 7 Days of moisture IS a stretch for any moisturizer to claim, but you know what? I kind of like this! I find when I use it, I don’t feel so parched for a few days. Meh, it’s a BIG bottle, affordable, feels good, makes skin soft-a winner in my books!
I bought First Aid Ultra Repair Liquid Recovery ($47) because of the high praises it seems to get from like EVERYBODY. It’s a daily tonic (TONIC, I feel so VICTORIAN now) that hydrates, and repairs stressed skin, and reduces redness. It’s a water/toner that you put on your skin after cleansing. Softeners are HUGE in Asia, and we’ll be seeing them more here in North America this year, just you watch. And you’ll say-HEY-TRACY TOLD ME/warned me about these things in May! But truth be told, I haven’t noticed anything different from using this one. Save your money, and get one of the softening lotions from Shiseido. Same thing. More product. Works BETTER, IMO.
The new Lady Speed Stick Nutra-Skin provides 24-hour odour protection, so you don’t have to worry about unpleasant body odour for a WHOLE DAY. Seriously, why I’d have to worry about that is beyond ME, but I’m old. I guess if you are out partying for DAYS, this is a problem for the kids. But who’d care? I mean, you’d LOOK like you’ve been out for days ANYWAYS. You know, having FUN. PARTY BABY. Nobody expects you to smell like a rose garden. And if they do? They’re ALIENS I say. Whatever. I’m all for 24 hour odour protection, but you gotta wonder how that affects them arm pits of ours, hey? Gotta dry them out something fierce! This though? It has skin-conditioning emollients that soothe dry skin. 30% of the deodorant is made up of skin pampering ingredients including Vitamin E to help soothe dry and irritated skin. I haven’t fallen in love with a deodorant/antiperspirant before, but this? LOVE. Already bought another. My soft armpits BEGGED for it I SWEAR.
Are you ready for warm weather? And baring arms? LEGS? LEGS. I don’t do them. My legs are SO pale and white. It would take YEARS of sun exposure to get them looking…like everybody else’s LOL. Really though? I don’t care. If I choose to wear shorts or a skirt and my legs blind you? YOUR FAULT. Get some sunglasses you weirdo. 😛
*products sent by PR for review, thought about bare arms, legs, armpits are ALL mine, and you gotta SEE that. Once a freak, ALWAYS a freak I say. And I LOVE BEING ONE.
