I naturally have dry skin so when winter hits, using a moisturizing body wash and body lotion daily is crucial to keeping my skin from getting extremely dry and itchy. When I was notified a few weeks ago I was selected to receive the complimentary Suave VoxBox from Influenster I was excited to give the products a try.

The first product I received was the Avacado + Olive Oil Body Wash. The Avacado and Olive Oil are 100% natural extracts and the body wash contains 0% parabens and 0% dyes which is great for sensitive skin. The body wash lathers nicely using a luffa and has a nice natural smell to the product, which is something I personally love. The body wash left my skin feeling soft and smooth.
The next product I received was the Almond + Shea Butter Body Lotion. Just like the wash, it also contains 100% natural extracts and 0% parabens and 0% dyes. In terms of packaging, I love when Body Lotion has a pump. For some reason, I am much more likely to be good at using it every day if it comes with a pump instead of a flip top.
The body lotion is lightweight and soaks into your skin quickly which is something I look for in a lotion I use every day. I also love that the lotion also has a natural smell. For me personally, I don’t love heavily fragranced lotions. On my skin, fragrances tend to change pretty significantly to what it smells like coming out of the bottle, and in most cases not in a good way. The only negative to this product is that since it is super lightweight, I still need a heavier lotion for my elbows, hands, knees, and feet since these areas of my body tend to get especially dry in the winter.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with both of these products. My skin feels moisturized and I don’t have the typical winter skin symptoms of itchy white skin.
How do you keep your skin looking its best during the winter months?
