For the past few weeks, we’ve been stuck in the Polar Vortex Of Freezing Cold Arctic Air And Misery, and while I thought winter was harsh on my skin before, this has been a whole new level of brutal. I have found myself moisturizing my face twice before putting on my makeup in the mornings because it felt like a desert after my shower. So much static! And dry air from the heat running constantly! My tight, dry skin has been crying out for relief. I’m not used to having this issue, even in the winter. My skin is typically pretty well-balanced, maybe even on the oily side. But my face and my arms and my legs and my back and belly…dry and itchy. PARCHED, even. Well! I got a chance to try some new products from Suave® and the timing was PERFECT.
For the first time, Suave® Body Care is launching products in the Suave Professionals® line. With new Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Body Care, women everywhere have access to premium products infused with authentic Moroccan argan oil, a lightweight miracle oil known to be rich in nutrients and antioxidants. The new product line includes Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Body Lotion, a daily moisturizer that absorbs quickly for up to 24 hours of non-greasy hydration, and Dry Body Oil Spray, a non-greasy formula that absorbs instantly, locking in long-lasting moisture. The Dry Body Oil Spray is perfect for special occasions such as adding radiant sheen to legs. With a light, luxurious fragrance, these premium products create beautifully silky, radiant skin.
The first product I tried was the lotion. I use body lotion a million times a day on my hands and arms (and sometimes on my feet), so I used this instead of my usual stuff. I love it. After a few days of regular use, I can say that my hands feel lovely. Even some of my hangnails and cracks around my fingernails have gone away. And it really isn’t greasy at all. I hate the butter-finger feeling after putting on some lotions (I am busy/impatient and don’t have time to wait for things to absorb for 20 minutes!) and this was quick and easy. I also used it after shaving my legs once (ONCE, because it’s WINTER. HA) and it rehydrated nicely.
I was mostly looking forward to trying the lotion because I’ll admit, I was very skeptical about the body oil spray. Oil. Sprayed directly onto my body. Ew. Even though I had joked about wanting to dip myself in a vat of oil after my showers, I wasn’t sure how the practice would go in reality. I pictured myself covered in olive oil: moisturized, perhaps, but slimy the rest of the day. So I was really happy when rubbing in a few sprays on the backs of my shoulders and arms post-shower absorbed almost immediately and left my skin feeling less tight and dry all day. I can’t speak too much to the claim of a “radiant sheen”, since right now all of our extra skin is covered in sweaters and coats so I can’t really SEE it throughout the day, but I’m interested in trying it out in the summer. The scent of both products is excellent. They almost remind me of a beachy-vanilla-y sunscreen smell, but not in-your-face or over the top. It was nice to catch a whiff of it during the day because then I could pretend I was at the beach. (A stretch perhaps, but I’ll take what I can get at this point!)
