Drugstore Beauty: Dial and Nivea



by Caroline Leavitt

Dial Up skin comfort with great new body washes

Come on, who doesn’t know and trust the name Dial? Now they’ve come up with two great body washes, which is great for anyone who hates the way soap dries your skin (and gets gummy in the soap dish.) I tried the Skin Therapy Replenishing Body Wash with 84 minerals and elements in Himalayan Pink Salt (which is hand-mined in the Himalayan Mountains an known to contain 84 minerals and elements!) and Water Lily. It smells delicious and it left my skin soft and moisturized.

Next I tried the Coconut Water & Bamboo Leaf Extract Ultra Fresh Hydrating Body Wash, which I also loved. I’m a sap for anything coconut and this one seems to have extra moisturizing power.  So whatever skin you’re in, you’re going to want to try both of these products. Beautiful skin can be just a shower away!


Put new Spring in your skin with Nivea
Winter’s almost over here, and skin can still be feeling the effects of it, be being dry, rough, scratchy and pale! Nivea to the rescue. Their Sun-Kissed Radiant Skin Gradual Tanner and Daily Lotion gives you a natural kiss of color without that streakiness and the color really stays put, too. Even better, the Ginkgo Extract, Grape Seed Oil and Hydra IQ technology keep your skin moisturized all day. You smooth it on, and you’ll start to see a hint of a tint within five days!

Bathing suit season is coming, so I couldn’t wait to try the Skin Firming Cellulite Gel-Cream with Q10 Plus. Boosted, too, with Natural Lotus extract and L-Carnitine, it smoothes, tones and improves skin firmness, even as it helps to reduce the visible signs of dreaded Cellulite. It works in two weeks time, too, so while you wait, you might want to go bathing suit shopping.

Last, I tried the Extended Moisture Daily Lotion for Dry to Very Dry Skin, which describes me to a T. It goes on like silk, doesn’t feel greasy, and best of all, the benefits seem to last all day. The provitamin B5 and 48 hour Hydra IQ technology make sure your dry, tight skin, is a thing of the past!
