Hydrated Skin…

I love living in Utah but the climate here is really dry so whenever fall and winter roll around my skin gets super dry and sometimes itchy! I just started using this Curél Itch Defense Body Wash and I love how it soothes and hydrates my skin. The formula is a blend of gentle cleaners and conditioners -including hydrating jojoba and olive oils- so it doesn’t irritate my skin, it relieves it. I’ll definitely be using it all season long!

What are some of your tips for keeping your skin hydrated during fall and winter?

    Well bonjour to Princess Isla & the adorable DasherBoy. So so so adorable of a picture of the three. :)

    And I also love the Curel products too. I have used the Curel moisturizer, the new body wash sounds very much a great product to try too. :)

    My skin gets super itchy when the cold months hit–it’s started already! I have been able to get by though with lotion in the morning and right before I go to bed.

  15. Danielle says:

    This body wash seems ideal for moisturizing our skin in the coming colder months!

  16. Shae says:

    I’ve never tried Curel, but I’m a big fan of anything I can pick up at Target! Cold weather is so great, but the dry skin, not so much.

    Such an adorable photo! Have you ever heard of Beautycounter? I am a loyal customer because they do not use any harmful ingredrients; Curel has two kinds of parabens in the ingredient list. The Beautycounter products are safe for you and they have products for your sweet little Isla Rose, too.

  18. Beautiful pics! This body wash sounds like a must for the cold East Coast weather that will be arriving in a few months.

  19. Federica says:

    we don’t have that brand in Italy. I use Aveeno body moisturizer every day after the shower, it’s great!
    Nice pics and great bathroom btw!

  20. Katie says:

    That body wash sounds amazing – – I get such dry skin, I will definitely be trying that out!

  22. Lauren says:

    I get the same way this time of year in NY. Have you ever used bath melts from LUSH? Omg they are amazing (if you are a bath person like me you would enjoy these!) They make your skin so soft and hydrated, you should try them!


  23. Ashley says:

    The last pic is too adorable! I always find myself my hydrating my skin and face more thoroughly during the colder/drier months.


  24. jenessa says:

    Oh thats great! Ill have to try it out!


  25. Sara Kate says:

  27. Dominique says:

    Ooooohh! Sounds amazing. I will be picking this up this season. My skin tends to get dry and itchy in the winter.

  28. Ellese says:

    Lovely photos! Thanks for sharing your cure for dry skin during th fall and winter months. XO, Ellese

  29. Jalisa says:

    I’ve never tried any of Curél’s products before, thanks for sharing this one! Here in New York, it gets super cold and my skin instantly becomes dry and patchy looking, literally as soon as I step outside. I’ve been using raw shea butter to help keep my skin hydrated and moisturized and I love it. The only downside is that it can be sticky and if mixed with other oils, it can leave a bit of a yellowish residue, so you can’t lay down on white blankets. It sounds like a project, but it works! I’ll have to look into Curél though :)

    I hope you have an amazing day, beauty! Little miss Isla is getting so big and is looking more and more beautiful every day, like her momma!

    I struggle with the same thing. My skin also gets dry in the fall and winter. I am definitely going to try this body wash.

  32. Hayley Larue says:

    I definitely need to try this! My skin always feels somewhat dry and itchy around this time!

  33. Christina says:

    I was just saying how itchy I have been and it’s only fall. I will give this a try! Super cute pic also.

  34. Paige says:

    We’ll definitely have to try that body wash soon!


  35. Your home is gorgeous!! I love your style and your beautiful pictures. :)

  36. Kriti says:

    Cute post! Your bathroom is gorgeous!


  37. Barb says:

    I use Cetaphil cream it’s serious skin care. It comes in a 16 oz jar for $12, and it’s worth every penny. It’s not greasy.

  38. tara says:

    I love that you do these posts on the different beauty products you use! I am always searching for new things. Thanks for sharing!

    xo, tara

  39. eva says:

    you look soo beautiful! And your little princess is beyond adorable! :))


  40. Rose says:

    Aww, what a sweet picture! I always apply almond oil or grape seed oil kt my skin before putting on the lotion and it helps the lotion soak in and locks in the moisture!

  41. Ebony says:

    I’m currently in love with Dove or Nivea body wash, Bath& Body works Eucalyptus stress relief body scrub that is so relaxing, following body moisturizer by Soap & Glory.
