Staying Moisturized during Cold Months

This post is sponsored by Neutrogena. All Opinions are my own.


In our family it’s really hard finding time to wind down. Since we’re all busy throughout the week with school and work that leaves us with only the weekends to fully bond. & believe me there’s no one that looks forward to this most than my husband, Moe. With 3 girls in the house you know he’s learned all about the importance of cleansing and moisturizing his face. If he’s ever in doubt Hazel always comes to the rescue lending a helping hand in his routine.




I recently introduced him to a few Neutrogena products that would make his skin feel amazing during these next few cold months. One of the products was the Men’s Invigorating Face Wash which is now my husband’s favorite gel cleanser. Some absolute amazing things about it is that is oil-free, it removes any excess surface oil to improve your skin’s overall healthy appearance. It’s an oil-free gel cleanser designed for men with a cooling lather that gets down and cleans the pores without over-drying. For $5.99 you can’t go wrong.

“After cleansing you should always moisturize”, I tell him. Those who know Moe, know how dry and irritated his face can get sometimes especially during the cold months. So irritated that he visited a dermatologist only to find out he just needed to moisturize all along. To him, applying lotion on his face was never a ‘thing’. Until I introduced him to the Men’s Triple Protect Face Lotion. This is a non-greasy men’s face lotion that offers multiple advanced skincare benefits to help protect your face. It moisturizes and heals dryness to condition the skin. It is lightweight, and contains SPF 20 sunscreen to help fight the signs of aging by reducing the appearance of lines and rough texture for smoother, healthier looking skin. Moe loves this stuff so much that he’s up to his second bottle.
You can purchase the Men’s Triple Protect Face Lotion at www.neutrogena.com for $6.99.




There’s no surprise that after becoming a new mom my favorite time of the day is when I’m able to take a steamy, hot bath/shower. Now I enjoy it even more because of how amazing the Rainbath Fresh Plum Shower & Bath Gel is! Most of you know how crazy I am when it comes to smelling good. Whether it’s perfumes, lotions or shower gels.. I LOVE smelling good! There’s also something about layering scents that just fascinates me but I’ll talk more about that in another story.

See, yesterday right after showering I ran to Costco to pick up makeup removing wipes. While on the aisle a lady stopped me to ask what perfume I had on? and I answered “aw, thank you. But I’m not wearing any”. Then I quickly corrected myself and told her it was the Neutrogena rainbath gel. I couldn’t smell it on me but clearly she did. There’s sense of empowerment and confidence when people compliment my scent… I think so anyways.

Alright, back to telling you about this gel; it cleanses, softens, and conditions the skin without leaving a heavy residue. The formula works to restore the skin’s look and feel, while the conditioning lather rinses away the day. My skin is always left feeling softer, and surely restored. Did I mention how amazing it smells? There are a few scents but this one is just my cup of tea.
Key notes: Fresh ripe plum, and various floral scents. Order the Rainbath Fresh Plum Shower & Bath Gel at www.neutrogena.com for $7.49 so you can get instant soft, smooth, and restored skin like mine!

Also, in the shower I love using a loofah to get rid of dry and dead skin. I do this once or twice a week and it makes such a difference when using gels or oils afterwards. It’s almost like my skin absorbs the products better.

For years now I’ve been applying olive oil on my skin after watching a 98 year old man speak on his daily routine. I was so fascinated by the way he looked that I wanted to do whatever he was doing to look that great at that age. Some might think it’s crazy but for me it’s quite normal now. There are just a few things a dislike about it. The thickness, stickiness and the smell. After discovering Neutrogena’s  Body Oil I’ve cut down on the application of olive oil. Since this oil keeps my skin silky, smooth and it smells really nice too. After a nice warm bath I start off by applying the Body Oil all over my body. The whisper-light formula absorbs so fast and quickly. It locks in all of the moisture that you may need to reach your silky skin goal. I love how it’s not sticky nor is it too thick and heavy on my skin. It’s almost like you’re wearing nothing but healthy moist skin. I know it’s a body oil but I love applying a tiny bit on my hair as well after styling it. It boosts the shine and looks so much more healthy. You can purchase the Body Oil at www.neutrogena.com for $11.99.

I spend a lot of time at home and I’m always either in a robe or in a lounging set (see below). This robe I’m wearing is from Adore Me and it’s one of my favorites. I love wearing it right after the shower. It adds an extra feminine touch to my moisturizing routine. It’s sheer so I do like adding a slip underneath. After moisturizing I like sipping on tea while the girls get ready for our day.



See, I told you I live in this Felina lounging set. Ever since I bought it after giving birth to baby James, I can't live without it. It’s so comfortable! I wish they sold it in different colors like cream or black. I’m actually wearing it right now as I type.

There are days when I’m feeling extra crusty so I also apply the Sheer Oil-Lotion. I know some of you can relate. You know, some days it doesn’t matter what you apply on your skin you still need an extra oomph. This lotion is a luxurious, sheer formula that is enriched with sesame seed oil. It glides on easily and absorbs quickly, allowing my skin to breathe and it definitely leaves it feeling soft, smooth, and supple. It’s perfect for my everyday moisturizing needs. I love keeping it on my entryway where it’s easy to just pump some on my hands each time I pass by. Maintaining a moisturized body helps me feel put-together. It helps me feel ready to take on the day and spend happy moments with my family. You can purchase the Sheer Oil-Lotion at www.neutrogena.com for $19.59. This product is not intended for children.

Please stay moisturized. Your skin will thank you!

  1. My dad actually uses that body oil! He uses it after he showers. Every. day.
    He is reallllyyy into body oils- I remember him using them since I was very little. I was surprised to see the Nutrogena one in the shower but he says he really likes it and convinced me to get one for myself. I keep it in my gym bag.

    Great blog post! So nice to see the whole fam coming together for this one :)
