I live about 2000 feet above sea level on the mountain of Haleakala on Maui. It’s funny because as I sit here quite warm and cozy with warm clothes, beanie and gloves – I’m always reminded that many people think that because I live in Hawaii, they can’t fathom the thought that we have cold weather here. It does snow – well, on my island – snow is mainly on the summit only and every few years if the temperatures allow, but during a cold winter my house can easily get to 40 degrees without any issues. Today, it’s actually 52 degrees so it’s colder than the normal 92 degrees that most locals here are used to. I provided you with a little lesson on the winter here in Hawaii because it’s a common misconception that boots, gloves and beanies are odd things to find here when in all honestly, I’m using them all right now to keep me warm. With colder weather in Hawaii, I desperately need to change up my skin care routine for my face and entire body. I naturally have dry skin, so anything I can use to keep my skin feeling soft and smooth, well – is definitely essential. To keep from an Eczema flare up, I tend to reach for products I know work and for me, Neutrogena Body Oil has been my winter buddy this season.
Neutrogena is a brand I have loved for years and I kind of consider it a family tradition. As a child, my dad used Neutrogena products so I’ve been familiar with their old school products for years. This year, Neutrogena Body Oil is celebrating its 50th anniversary which really reminds me how great products really can stand the test of time over the years. (Check out the vintage ad below from many years ago – this body oil has certainly stood the test of time)
My Easy Winter Routine Featuring Neutrogena
Since Winter tends to do the absolute most damage on my skin each year, I tend to look for products that will provide me with much needed moisture and hydration but that don’t leave that icky-greasy feeling behind. Neutrogena Body Oil is my pick because it’s so different from other moisturizers. It absorbs quickly without the greasy after-feel you can experience from others on the market, it’s dermatologist-tested which is a big deal for me and it leaves my skin feeling soft, silky and protects against moisture loss. With just one use and in a matter of seconds you will notice your skin feels softer and smoother and I love that there is no wait time for it to dry before getting dressed and ready.
To keep my skin feeling smooth, sexy and soft I put the Neutrogena Body Oil all over my body right out of the shower. I always make sure my skin is still damp and my skin absorbs the oil quickly and usually under a minute. Because of the light formula, I don’t have to wash my hands after applying and the oil leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth without that greasy you can expect from an oil. Of course, if you have time for a bath, you can put a little of the Neutrogena Body Oil into the bath water and it will moisturize you that way, but seriously – I don’t have time for a bath, so I like the quick and easy way of applying it. For moms on the go like me, this is a great no-fuss alternative to the “spa” like treatments that can be messy. There’s no need to wait ages for the oil to dry and definitely no worry in messing up the floor, bath tub or even your bed after using it – since the product works its magic quickly and painlessly.
I love that the Neutrogena Body Oil has a light fragrance, but you can opt to get a fragrance free version if you would like. It’s great for the winter months or year round. My Hawaii Winter Skin is loving it and I love that I don’t have to worry about dry, rough skin this time of year.
Seriously, if you know anything about me, then you know I’m all about an easy routine that allows me to be done in a heartbeat. Neutrogena Body Oil has been an absolute favorite and knowing it is a brand that my family has trusted for years, well – let’s just say it’s worth looking into. After 50 years, I think it’s safe to say that it’s definitely something worth a try, and something I highly recommend.
Have you tried a body oil before? Do you think Neutrogena Body Oil could be a good one for your winter skin?
