Ending dry skin with Curel

Ending dry skin with Curel

Curél reached out to 40 bloggers to get to know us better and get an idea on how we feel about having dry skin. I think the graphic below speaks for itself on the annoyance of not only battling dry skin year round but also on the embarrassment that we feel when we can’t find relief from it!

Let me just tell you girls, the product I’m about to introduce to you is a game changer! Drum roll, please: Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer. This stuff is the most amazing way to combat dry skin. In case you don’t know, after showering, your skin cells expand, providing an easy pathway for moisture into just-showered skin. I always apply moisturizers to my skin right after a shower so I am well aware of the significance of “sealing in” as much moisture as possibly for best/longer lasting results with lotions. Who would have thought to put lotion on after your shower, but BEFORE you dry off? It looks like your run-of-the-mill moisturizer, but it’s actually nothing like that at all. And that’s because you don’t have to spend forever rubbing it in! One of the reasons why I am so bad about keeping up with moisturizing is because of how long I have to spend in the bathroom massaging the lotion in. I am way too impatient of a person to spend time doing that!

Another reason that I love this lotion is because it doesn’t aggravate my sensitive skin. You all know that I struggle with finding products that do not make my skin red, rashy, and worse off than when I started! This lotion is very easy on the skin and it is fragrance free so it does not cause you to get a headache or create a weird scent when combined with your perfume. All you have to do is put it on wet skin right out of the shower. You rub it on really quickly, pat dry with a towel, and you’re done. You don’t have to massage it into your skin and it doesn’t leave that greasy residue that some heavy lotions do. It is so lightweight and glides right on which makes it easy to incorporate into my everyday routine. With my dry skin, I need a heavy-duty moisturizing lotion, and this stuff delivers! My skin feels softer, healthier, and more vibrant than ever. 

The groundbreaking wet skin technology doesn’t simply smooth and soften, but also restores your body’s ability to retain its own much-needed moisture. It is activated by water on freshly showered skin and absorbs immediately! You girls will absolutely fall in love with it! Give it a try and let me know your thoughts!
