Winter Skin Rescue {Neutrogena Giveaway}

home alone movie harry gets burnt on door knobHave you ever volunteered to do the holiday family dishes?  You pull up your sleeves, start scraping off Uncle Jerry’s leftovers, put your hands in the hot soapy water, and then immediately need to run outside to stick your hands in a snow bank. {Harry on Home Alone after he gets burnt on the door knob style.} 

Dry, chapped skin is a constant battle in our house this time of year. So I was much relieved when I finally found a hand cream that actually helps heal dry skin, rather than just mask it for a few minutes.

It’s Neutrogena® Hand Cream and sells for under $5. Worth every pretty penny.

What do I like about it?

  • It’s fragrance free – because my boys struggle with patches of dry skin also and a girly scent would not fly.
  • It last longer than any other hand cream I’ve tried in the past.
  • It makes skin smooth and soft but not oily or greasy.
  • It works on dry skin anywhere – not just your hands.


And for the final giveaway of 2011, I have a collection of “Winter Skin Rescue Goodies” from Neutrogena which includes a bottle of the Hand Cream, Rainbath Shower and Bath Gel, Body Oil, Lip Moisturizer, and Moisture Wrap Body Lotion. Everything you need for the upcoming long months of winter!

To enter just leave a comment about how you keep your skin healthy during the long winter months.

This is a 48 hour giveaway so sign up now! Winner will be chosen randomly and notified via email.

    UGH! Dry, chapped skin in the winter is the worst! I am constantly applying lotion and lip moisturizer to try to battle the flaky, cracked painfulness!! I have never tried the Neutrogena kind, but I’d love to see how it works!!! Thanks for the giveaway Jen! 🙂

    Very important to keep your skin hydrated. I have very dry skin in the winter. Have tried all kinds of products, but never neutrogena. Would love a sample.
    Hope the boys have a wonderful Christmas.

    OOOH! I need this package! My hands get dry and crack badly every winter. Mainly I use lotion on my hands. I put it on the backs of my hands and then rub just the backs together. HA! I hate having it on the palms of my hands and then touching things. This definately looks like a good lotion for me to try! I may have to pick some up when I am shopping today. Have a nice Christmas:)

    Living in Western Oregon, one of the wettest places in the U.S., my skin never gets too dry. But when we were stationed in Idaho desert, I slathered my hands and face in Vaseline before going out for a run!

    Living in the Northern NV desert, dry skin is a year long battle made worse in the chilly wintertime. I use hand cream every night before going to bed but even that doesn’t always do the trick. It would be fun to try a new product!

    It’s a battle – I try and remember to use lotion each night after my shower but then with two little ones I often get side tracked and forget and then end up with itchy dry skin – shucks. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway!

    I always am using lotion after washing my hands and when I get out of the shower. Working as a nurse, I wash my hands all the time, have to use lots of lotion to keep them hydrated!

    I’ve found that drinking a ton of water helps, as does making sure the humidity level in our house is appropriate. And lots of lotion, of course!! Great giveaway!

    I have struggled with sensitive skin my entire life and love anything fragrance free. Aveeno is my current product but I also like neutropenia. One thing I always remember to do is moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. That is the key for me.

    It is too funny that you wrote about this lotion!!! I struggle with dry hands, especially after my daughter spent 4 1/2 weeks in the NICU last winter….my hands did not survive the winter weather AND the constant hand washing in the NICU. A year later, my hands are still a mess!!!!! I feel like I have tried every product on the market. Recently, I tried the very Neutrogena lotion you are highlighting and IT IS A DREAM COME TRUE. It works so well!!! I do have trouble finding it in stores where I live, so I will cross my fingers (my mosturized fingers) that I win!!!!!

    In the past I have always used aquafor on those awful dry patches on the hands and cheeks. A few months ago i started using Goat Milk Soap from The Goat Milk stuff people 🙂 We rarely use lotion anymore and does wonders to keep the skin from getting so dry! we cant avoid the chapped cheeks from the wind though and aquafor still comes in handy 🙂

    I try to use a cream skin wash. I also use body lotion right afteR a shower to seal in moisture. Dry winter weather is tough to prevent dry skin. I need all the help I can get.

    My skin gets extremely dry – and my heels, hands, and lips crack – thanks to genes from both of my parents. I find that doing “lotion baths” at night with socks and/or gloves is best for keeping dry skin at bay.
