Winter Skin Saviors.

As soon as the weather changes a bit colder, my skin longs for the extra hydration.  For this reason, and the fact that I love to try new lotions, potions and the like; I am always on the hunt for a winter skin savior to soothe my super dry skin.

So far this year, I am loving the new Kiehl's Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter that I told you about last week.  In addition to that, I have been smoothing this new dream body oil from Clarins over my body after taking a bath, a few times a week.

Clarins Huile “Tonic” Oil is composed of 100% natural plant extracts and aromatic essential oils. I like to rub it over my skin while I am still wet and then pat dry off. It locks in moisture and leaves my skin silky soft, never greasy, with the wonderful light scent.

I asked my Twitter friends what they use in the winter for their dry skin. Here is what a few of them told me.

@15minbeauty, who is Christine from 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic said: "Cetaphil cream, hands down. It's so thick and moisturizing. I've looked for an alternative, but nothing works as well."

@1andonlyMelissa said: "Body butter/ hands down is insane. Im a product junkie n its best. Hand cream? I found BoEssentials store aftr a fam reunion n VA. Stumbld on Mistral handcream in boutique/FrenchQtr. Best accdntl finds!"

@karlaneese said: "I love Curel Intense Healing."

@oldergirlbeauty, who is Paula from Older Girl Beauty said: "I slather on @MarioBadescu Super Rich Olive Body Lotion. Soaks right in & takes away my itchy's!"

@LondonMUgirl from London Makeup Girl said: "Haus of Gloi Pumpkin Butter."

@BeautyAlchemist, who is Diane from The Beauty Alchemist said: "Mine= Kiehl's Imperial Body Balm. Major moisture, smoothing and smells amazing."

I plan to explore these new suggestions, plus many more. I will continue to bring you my thoughts on the better ones that keep my dry winter skin hydrated.

Now it's your turn. What is your go-to body cream for the winter?

I like using The Body Shop Hemp Body Butter :)
Love JUARA Candlenut Body Cream--thick, rich and smells divine!!
This is great info! I suggested the Body Butter from Bo Essentials ( and the Hand Cream from Mistral Soap ( What I couldn't fit on twitter :) is that of all the products i've tried (way too many), the body butter is tops for in that it literally leaves you feeling soft as a baby. I hope they never change one thing about the highly concentrated ingredients. The mango is a favorite but these can be ordered plain or custom blended with a gazillion scents to choose from. The Mistral handcream (in tube) is so amazing that there is not one person who has tried it who hasn't ordered it regularly online afterward. You will not stop rubbing your hands together once you put it on. The story goes...I was caught in the rain in the French Qtr in New Orleans...the closes (and prettiest) shop was like beauty-glam-gal-heaven! I found this hand cream and was in love! It was $15 then, now $18 and still worth every dime. The Melon Pear was the most delightful scent and somehow they discontinued it but find one you like and try that if nothing else. You will find yourself offering it to your friends like I do and they will be in love with it! And if you are, I do not work for these companies lol, I just love exceptional products and want to share it with all who feel the same! Enjoy.
I use Eucerin - right from the drugstore.
I swear by Lancome Nutrix Royal Body. I have used it for about 3 years, after reading about it here! :)
I use different body butters from LUSH. I just pick up whatever scent strikes my fancy that day and use it until I'm out of it.
