I am a lotion junkie. I have a different lotion for every body part, season, mood, etc. Seriously, you should see my stash, it’s overflowing. It may seem silly, but it s my way of pampering and taking care of myself. To some, my stash may look full, but I am always on the look out for a new lotion to fall in love with.
Dial™ soap is a staple in our home. I grew up using Dial™ bar soap, and we use Dial™ NutriSkin™ hand soap in our kitchen. So when I was invited to try Dial™ NutriSkin™ lotion, it was a perfect fit. Dial™ meets lotion, sounds like a good combo to me.
So I headed out to Walmart, where there was an in-store demonstration and I planned to test the lotion for myself. (Check out the full story of my trip in pictures on Google+.) I found the lotion the shelves before I found the demo, so I checked out the products and did a quick sniff test of each type. Funny story here… you know how you lightly squeeze a bottle of lotion to get a whiff of the sent. I successfully did this on the first two bottles, but on the third a glob of lotion went flying out of the bottle into my nose. Ick! Yep, right there in the store, lotion in my nose. Anywho…
I searched out the in-store demonstration to test out the lotion. At the demo I was able to sample two of the lotions, the Dry Skin with True Aloe and the Extra Dry Skin formulas. I tried one on each arm. I liked that both lotions absorbed quickly and didn’t leave me feeling greasy (a no-no for my lotions). Both lotions had a very light lotion scent, nothing specific that I can describe other than they sounded like lotion.
In addition to the two lotions I was able to sample, my Walmart also offered Dial™ NutriSkin™ Sensitive Skin and Firming formulas. There was also a black bottle of lotion for men. This confused me greatly. Since none of the lotions had a floral scent (really much of a scent at all), I don’t understand why men need their own lotion. (I meant to smell that one to see if it was “manly,” but at that moment I was distracted by a little girl squirting lotion on the floor and her mother’s frustration/embarrassment.)
After much debated, I decided that what my lotion stash at home was currently lacking was a bedside tube of lotion for my hands. My hands get really dry this time of year, so I apply lotion to my hands nightly. Recently, my husband’s hands have also been dry so he commandeered my lotion. The Dial™ NutriSkin™ Extra Dry formula comes in a small tube that is perfect for this purpose, it also has shea butter, which I love for a hand lotion. Also, since I apply hand lotion before bed, it is imperative that my lotion doesn’t have a heavy scent, so this lotion is perfect.
The Dial™ NutriSkin™ formulas are very affordable (love this). A giant 26.25 oz bottle (with pump) is $5.67 full price, and a 15 oz is $3.97 while the XXX tube only $1.97. And you will notice in my picture above, several of the bottles had peelies for $.55 off. (And the day I shopped, the lotion was on sale too.) Since the demonstrator was passing out $1 off coupons, I scored a tube of lotion for less than $1. Very affordable pampering.
