My Favorite Low Budget Things: Skin Care

Winter retreat. Dry skin is certainly at its worst during the winter. These are a few products that give my skin refuge during this time.

Showering strips the skin of moisture, and these Olay soaps give the skin a fighting chance. The Olay Body Winter Retreat bars for extra dry skin and the Olay Body Wash plus Body Butter Ribbons (my favorite being the jojoba butter) wrap the skin in an aromatic lather that moisturizes.

Now, I must say that I have used the Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula lotion for many years. And, it is great. But, the Vaseline Cocoa Butter Extra Care Cream wins this battle. It is richer, moisturizes deeper, smells better, and most importantly costs less. On occasion, I use the Vaseline Deep Conditioning Lotion which is much lighter than the cream.
