Dry Skin Essentials To Try Under $10, all from the drugstore!
Curel Itch Defense Line ($7.99 each; target.com) & Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer($6.99 each; target.com)
Curel’s Itch Defense line is made for dry itchy skin, both the Body Wash and the Calming Body Lotion don’t have a scent and feel more like medicated products that leave a film on the body and protect against dryness. They're not indulgent body care by any means, but do the job quite well! Jergens’ Wet Skin moisturizer has a mild, floral scent and is like a conditioner for the body that is to be used on wet skin, before towel drying. There’s no need for a separate body lotion, its an easy step after shower that keeps skin soft and is pretty amazing for the price!
Mint Cocoa and Honey Moisturizing Lip Balms from Burt’s Bees ($3.29; target.com)
Mint Cocoa is very new, while Honey is an existing flavor. They are good handbag essentials, though not the most heavy-duty. Mint Cocoa has a delicious chocolate scent and is great under lipsticks, while Honey is more of a sweet flavor that isn’t too strong.
Burt’s Bees Honey & Bilberry Foot Cream ($8.99; target.com)
A beautifully scented foot cream that won’t leave a very greasy residue. Its great for feet that needs just maintainence after exfoliation or a good scrub. Not a miracle cure for dry feet, just good to keep them soft and does’t come with the usual minty tingle or scent most foot creams have.
