I have a gripe about the cold weather that is rapidly descending. Truthfully, since I firmly believe I was meant to live in a warm climate, I have many gripes about the cold weather that freezes me every evening.
However, in an effort to keep things simple (always my style), I'll stick with one gripe at a time.
I can't stand cracked, dry, winter skin. It's enough to make me relocate. Since relocation isn't in the cards, I've developed a system to deal with hands that feel like sandpaper and itchy arms under my sweaters. My system involves heavy moisturizers right out of my hot showers. The moisturizer needs to be thick, creamy and leave my hands looking as if I dipped them in oil. I need to apply the moisturizer immediately after I dry my skin.

Winter Gripes and Olay Body Wash
When the weather really drops into the freezing zone, I can't skip my moisturizing system. Ever.
This week, I found a body wash that not only moisturizers as I wash, but prevents dry skin in the future. It smells like warm vanilla and makes me want to shower forever.
While shopping with Moopa, I purchased Olay® Vanilla Winter Retreat Ultra Moisture Body Wash. Since Moopa is three now, and she is fascinated with my phone and all of its gadgets, Moopa chronicled our shopping adventure.
Here is me finding the body wash:
And here is my body wash next to my French bread:
I think I have a photographer in the making. Or a broken cell phone.
Olay® has made my life easier with a body wash that smells of delicious vanilla and helps cure dry, cracked winter skin. With continued use, skin stays soft and crack-free. I'm convinced Olay's® Winter Retreat may just be the best thing since sliced bread. Or low-fat ice cream.
Olay® has made a body wash that keeps me feeling clean, my skin smelling good and my hands softer than sandpaper. I never thought I'd see the day.
