Winter in these parts has turned out to be a big wash so far this year, as we haven't really had any bitterly cold weather or snow to speak of.
But we've still used the heat in the house and have taken hot showers, and that can really dry out your skin.
While I'm not plagued with severely dry skin, I'm often annoyed by dry, tight skin, especially on my legs. I've got a whole set of different lotions that I use for different reasons, but I've really never found "the one" that cures everything.
Some are better for my hands, others are better for my legs, but make my hands feel greasy, while others work best on my elbows.
It can be quite the routine, so a moisturizing body wash can really be a time saver.
Recently I was given the chance to try Olay® Ultra Moisture Body Wash with shea butter.
It's got the equivalent of more than a jar of Olay moisturizers in every bottle, and with repeated use it has been found to improve the condition of dry skin.
I've been using it for a few days, and I've noticed that my skin doesn't feel dry and tight after a shower. The wash is rich and creamy and, while it doesn't really make a lather, it makes me feel clean and doesn't seem to leave a film or scum in the shower.
I'm usually a soap user, so the low-lather part has taken a little bit of getting used to, but the no-dry-skin part helped me get over that! I've even used it for shaving and it's worked out well.
Also, I haven't felt like I need to use lotion after my shower, and the good-skin feeling lasts for the whole day.
A couple of things I should mention: I find that it comes out sort of fast, so be careful, and the smell is very strong. It's not unpleasant, but it bears mentioning if you have any sort of sensitivity to fragrances.
If you have dry skin, and you find yourself needing an army of lotions to take care of it, check out Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash to simplify your routine.
