5 great: moisturizers for cold weather

Weleda Wild Rose Body Oil

Weleda Wild Rose Body Oil

Weleda has several really lovely body oils, but Wild Rose is my favorite. It works amazingly well with a light rose scent and has protected even my super dry-skinned bare legs well into the winter. 

bliss vanilla+bergamot body butter

My favorite bliss moisturizer (lemon+sage is a close second), this super rich moisturizer protects my skin or brings it back from the brink when I've been too lazy to moisturize regularly. And it smells even better than it works. 

Burt's Bees Lemon & Vitamin E Body Oil

Burt's Bees Lemon & Vitamin E Body Oil

This is the one that is always right on the shelf outside my shower. I love the light lemony scent and I also love that I can easily pick it up anywhere for around $8 a bottle.

babyganics eczema care skin protectant cream

babyganics eczema care skin protectant cream

We can safely divide my life into before babies and after babies as to what I buy and why. As the baby total began to rise, I began scaling back on what I bought for myself and how much I would spend on anything that was just for me. If I can find something great that works for all of us, so much the better. This one does that so amazingly well. It's great for my sensitive super dry skin and can deal with the stubborn dry and eczema patches my children get, gently and oh so effectively. 

Naobay Body Radiance Lotion

Naobay Body Radiance Lotion

This is a new one I've tried recently (first found in my birchbox) and I really love it. It has a nice light lemon scent. it's a beautiful, natural moisturizer that attacks dry patches with ease. Think a grown-up version of the babyganics above.
