why I love it: Winter is all about fighting off dry skin, so I always keep my ears open to products that will do that successfully. The windy, dry weather has arrived, which means it's time for a beauty product regimen change. I was skeptical when a friend told me she loved this stuff after seeing it praised in several magazines. Body oil immediately evoked images of slippery, overly tan sunbathers on the beach, and that is neither a look or feel I was trying to go for. But I was feeling pretty meh about my current lotion and was curious enough to give it a try. After one use, I was sold. A few drops on arms and legs immediately after a shower changes the feel of skin almost instantly. Rub it in like lotion, and skin drinks it up leaving no oily feeling, but an ultra-moisturized, velvety one that lasts and lasts. My only complaint is that it doesn't work so magically on my winter-dry knuckles, but that's not really what it's meant for. It works so immediately and so well, and because you only need a few drops every time you use it, it lasts a long time. And even though it would be fine just boasting the amazing effects it has, it also smells amazing.
where to get it: Neutrogena, $9.99-$15.99
