It's mid-May and thanks to these unpredictable temperatures, I'm sure that some of you are dealing with skin dryness (where's spring?) My skin is soft and nourished, thanks to Dove. Back in March, I attended the Dove #ShowerAwayDrySkin event, with pedicures and yes, a 360 degree spin Gif booth! Infused with Moroccan Argan Oil and specifically formulated to address dry skin, here are the latest additions to the Dove body collection, NEW Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash and Dry Oil Beauty Bar!

Dove #ShowerAwayDrySkin event
At Dove's #ShowerAwayDrySkin event, we also learned that nourished, moisturized skin leads to increased confidence in women. An incredible 98% of women feel more confident when their skin is moisturized vs. dry. For women with extra dry skin that can impact their confidence, Dove Dry Oil will replenish lipids to the skin, effectively cleansing without leaving skin feeling dry.

Origins By All Greens

NEW ORIGINS 
BY ALL GREENS FOAMING
DEEP CLEANSING MASK
Evcurlgurl.com
 Origins By All Greens & #SkinDetox Magic Mix Juicery sent from the Origins team

My skin can't get enough of Origins NEW By All Greens™ Foaming Deep Cleansing Mask ($36), which I have been indulging in since mid-March. It’s more than just a mask, this creamy clay mask transforms into a self-activating foam cleanser. The two-in-one, self-foaming green clay mask provides the penetrating treatment of a detoxifying mask while also delivering the purifying power of a high-performance cleanser, revealing radiant and refreshed skin. The creamy self-activated green clay transforms into a cooling rich foam to deep clean without drying or stripping skin. Within minutes the clay gently removes makeup, skin-damaging dirt and pollutants from skin and unclogs pores. All those impurities are then washed away.

Recommended for: dry, rough, normal and oily skin. How to use: 1-2 times per week in place of your regular cleanser. 

Step 1: TREAT Apply a thin layer directly to skin (No need to pre-cleanse!). Don’t blend or rub in - just let it sit. Relax as your skin is purified and the foam develops. 

Step 2: CLEANSE Wet fingers and massage in circular motions to remove dirt, pollution and toxins. Rinse well.
