Moving from San Francisco to Colorado has wrecked havoc on my skin. I absolutely cannot go a day without slathering moisturizer over every inch of my itchy skin, something I never did when living on the coast.
It has taken me 10 months of living here to figure out which products give me the best punch of moisture without killing my wallet. And here are my favorite budget-friendly dry-skin savers:
For dry lips: Evolution of Smooth Sphere Lip balm. This stuff stays glossy for so long! Plus it smells and tastes fab and only costs $3.29!
For dry cuticles: Burt’s Bees Hand Salve. Full disclosure, I am rough on my cuticles. ROUGH. And this is my favorite smoother. I have tried so many products, but this salve has the perfect amount of moisture and smoothing without being overly sticky. You definitely need to really rub it in, but once you do it won’t smear all over everything. And the $9.00 tin will last you forever!
For dry skin: Nivea Creme. I am a recent convert to this. But I really like it. Yes, it is slightly sticky and you really have to work it in, but it has more lasting power than just about anything I have tried. I rub it into my hands and even after washing them a few times, I can still feel the cream protecting my skin! It definitely has a lot of fragrance which is my only complaint, but in reading other reviews it seems most people like the way it smell! The best moisturizer I have tried for under $6.00!
