Stacy B here! In true New England fashion, we went from snow to 68 degrees in less than 3 days last week. My hair got flat and static-y, then wavy and frizzy. My skin was just as confused and went from normal, to sticky in the humidity and then dry and irriated in the cold air.
After the crazy weather, I notice my skin wasn’t recovering very well. And not in an acne, breakout way, but on my arms and legs in more of a ‘am I dry? am I oily? am I cracked? is this winter? is this summer? What is going on!?’ kind of way. The backs of my arms had those yucky dead skin bumps and my knees and elbows were dry and splitting but my face was getting oily and so was the skin around my …um…ladies. 😉 And after two kids, the girls deserve to be taken care of!
I had to do something, I’m in for a long, dry winter and didn’t want things to get worse.
I’ve had success myself and with my kids using Sebamed products, so I found a SebaMed Cleansing Bar for Sensitive Skin. I chose it because it was moisturizing, for my dry parts, had the right pH balance to erase my oily parts and was mild with natural vitamins and amino acids to sooth my skin and get it back to normal.
This has a really light scent, is curved to fit right in your hand and lathers up really well. I like my bubbles. I need bubbles. If I don’t see bubbles, I don’t think it’s working. The best part was even with all the bubbles, it washed away entirely. The bubbles were thick and creamy and rich and made me feel really clean and pampered.
After I got out of the shower, my skin felt moisturized and smooth. After a few days, everything was back to normal. The dry skin bumps went away, I could bend my knees and elbows without fearing a crack and any oily spots were gone, too.
This bar is still going strong and I’ll probably invest in a few more to get through the next few cold, snowy months. They are a bit on the expensive side, about $14, but they last and they really do work. If I rotate between this bar and another soap, I can stretch it out a bit and still reap the benefits.
This would make a great little stocking stuffer, or part of a gift basket for a teacher or co-worker. Or, just buy it for yourself, because there’s nothing wrong with getting yourself a little gift, too!
WHAT ABOUT YOU? LADY OF THE BAR OR GEL SOAP?
