The One Thing that Transformed My Skin This Spring

It’s no secret that I’ve struggled with dry skin. Some people get patches on their hands or face during winter that clear when the weather gets warmer, and some people, like me, suffer off and on all year long with itchy, tight, dry skin on their face and other places on their body. Not only do I suffer from dry skin, but I have sensitive skin and am prone to patches of eczema. The struggle is real.

How to Combat Dry Skin

I sound like a real winner, don’t I?! ;) While it may seem like my skin looks bad, it usually doesn’t. For me, my dry skin is more of a sensation; I often feel itchiness and notice flakiness when scratched that is enough to drive anyone a little bit crazy. All this to say, this spring I finally found a product that transformed my dry skin, and I can’t wait to share more about the transformation I’ve seen over the past three months of using the Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer!

I first discovered Curél’s dry-skin-friendly products through a sample that I received in the mail several years ago. It was their Itch Defense Body wash and Lotion, and I was shocked at how much it helped. When I had the opportunity to partner with them this spring on a campaign to share their new Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Body Moisturizer, I was in. Their latest offering promises to be perfect for dry and very dry skin and perfect for those with sensitive skin or skin conditions like eczema.

Long gone is the tight feeling of parched skin on my back and itchy legs post-shave. Now my skin feels soft and smooth, and the moisture feels like it stays for days after. And, the eczema patches that normally plague my elbows and knees are gone too!

Curel Hydratherapy Wet Skin Moisturizer Review // Hello Rigby Seattle Beauty Blog To use the Wet Skin Moisturizer, shower as normal, then after turning off the water but before exiting the shower, apply a thin layer from neck to feet. I personally don’t apply this to my face, but I’m sure you could try it and see how your skin reacts. I focus a little extra moisturizer and attention during this time to the areas that seem most dry, which is usually my legs and lower back. Whatever is left over on my hands, I rub into them! I find that my hands love it too.

Because the lotion is unscented, it’s great for those with allergies and I haven’t notified any issues with it leaving a residue or stain on any of my robes or towels. My favorite part of the Wet Skin Moisturizer is that I don’t feel obligated to moisturize my entire body until the next time I take a shower. And, when I forget to moisturizer wth the Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer, I definitely notice a difference. For me, it’s important to stay consistent with the routine to keep that pesky dry skin at bay!

With summer just around the corner, I’m excited to rock more skirts and dresses without feeling like my legs are going to suffer from dryness and itchiness. No longer do I have to worry about baring my arms, as my former dry patches and eczema are no longer. With the end of my dry skin, I’m feeling more confident in my own skin and happy that I’ve found something that works so well!

I don’t mean to sound like an infomercial, but if you’ve struggled with dry skin and finally find something that works, you basically want to shout it from the rooftops. That’s basically how I feel about Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer, and the fact that it’s less than $8 at your local Target, Walmart, or favorite drug store makes this a product you really can’t go wrong with.

Have you tried the Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer yet? Have you found something that helps your dry skin? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

    I’ve tried Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer & I, too, am now a believer! It works so well & covers completely and smoothly on wet skin just after showering. I have eczema also, and while it doesn’t flare up nearly as much as it did when I was younger, I still stick with skin care products for sensitive skin. This Seattle spring has been harsh and not nearly as warm as I hoped nor would prefer. Curel Hydra Therapy has been so effective at keeping my skin feeling supple and lush. Thanks for this wonderful write up!

    That sounds SO perfect. I tried some of the lotion that you use with the shower on, but it made my shower slippery/dangerous. [My joints aren’t super stable, so extra dangerous for me.] I also like to get lotion on ASAP so that it will sink in and then I can use my dry oil sunless tanner.
    I am always looking for hygiene shortcuts because showering/getting ready can be physically painful (I was sad that I had to grow out my bob a bit, so that I could curl it faster), but I want to look good and I suffer from horrifically dry skin!
    My husband also hates anything that feels oily, but I hate his dry skin (and he knows it!). Maybe this will be the answer :)

    I haven’t tried this one yet (although I do have a sample!) but I love Nivea’s in shower moisturizer. I also have terribly dry skin and swear by it! I”ll have to try the Curel one to compare :)
