I’m a shower product freak. My bathroom looks like a teenage girl bought every pretty smelling product imaginable and stuffed them all into a too-small area. But showers and baths are such a relaxing time – no hassle, no work and, for many of you supermoms out there, no kids – and I like my personal time to not only smell good, but feel good too.
Since I was old enough to start getting my own bath and body products, I’ve tried everything from LUSH products to Bath & Body Works, Adidas to H20. Sure, some of them cost a lot (let’s just say that in my opinion, LUSH tends to fall short of wonderful. Maybe I have received bad products from them, but they were so slimy!) and some of them just aren’t that effective (I know that many of you love them, but Victoria’s Secret products just don’t cut it in my house)… but I’m willing to give anything a try.
Dial NutriSkin Body Wash features a clean-rinsing formula that’s heavy on moisture and light on skin. It’s packed with nutritious fruit oils that leave skin soft and revitalized, not greasy or grimy. A fresh twist on moisture: Say goodbye to creamy moisturizers and cover your skin in a refreshingly light, fantastically effective moisturizing formula. Dial® NutriSkin with Fruit Oil™ body wash is infused with micro-beads of ultra-hydrating, yet naturally light fruit oil.
Just the look of this product is fun – I was sent the Grape Seed Oil and Lemongrass Body Wash, and it has little golden beads of goodness inside of it – but the real test was in the shower.
I had to pull my hair up (after all, sulfates are bad for Brazilian Blowouts!), but the NutriSkin created a frothy lather and felt really soft and smooth on my skin. It washed off clean and, while I still needed to moisturize after the shower (I do live in Denver, after all), there was definitely a softer and more comfortable feeling stepping out of the shower.
Sometimes if you’re using a bad body wash (or no body wash at all), you tend to have that tight, uncomfortable dry feeling when you’ve gotten out. That definitely didn’t happen with the Dial NutriSkin. Even the boyfriend liked it because it was a gender-neutral smell (unlike some of my very girly body washes!) and didn’t leave a soapy film on his skin.
What would I improve? I’d probably add more scents (right now they only have Grape Seed Oil & Lemongrass and Cherry Seed Oil & Mint) and maybe offer a sulfate-free option (which would obviously be more expensive). But, for the extremely affordable price of $3.99 for a 16 oz. bottle – I thought they were joking when I saw that number! – this is a great item to try out. If you love it, you’ve found a fun, fresh-smelling and cheaper alternative to what you’re using now (and it’s definitely more moisturing than a body bar!). If you don’t (which I’m pretty sure you will), then you didn’t have to budget to get it in your shower.
This product should be hitting the shelves this month, and you should be able to find a coupon or two for them in your local paper or online (that always tends to happen when new products come out). Will you be trying this new product or not?
