A Moroccan Infusion in a Connecticut Winter {Giveaway!}

I know it’s not actually that stupid groundhog’s fault – an overgrown hamster can’t actually change weather patterns – but right now I’m dreaming of a groundhog skin hat to keep my head warm. I don’t actually HATE snow days. Staying home and building snowmen and watching movies isn’t the worst. My kids LIKE the snow and never seem to get cold and sending them out back to throw snow on each other always means we get an early and easy bedtime. But I am a wimp and have a strong dislike of being cold so I like the coming back inside part the best. It’s marginally warmer inside, most of the time. Unfortunately my house is ancient and has steam radiators, so running them full blast also means sapping every ounce of moisture out of the air. When we had the carpet down I couldn’t walk across a room without flinching any time I touched something. I’ve shocked myself with my iPod headphones a dozen times in the last couple weeks (I’m not even sure how that happens). And the poor ginger’s hair stands on end all day. It’s adorable, but they keep shouting “Mommy, you zapped me!”

This is his hair on a good day

The dry winter air is especially rough on my poor expanding baby belly. I’ve just reached the point where “popped” is the appropriate word to describe my stomach, rather than “Man, she really needs to lay off the burritos and do a few sit ups” (although those are also good ideas, considering how weak my stomach muscles are). Pregnancy always makes my skin super dry and I scramble to find something that helps. So when BlogHer offered to send me the new Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion skin care products I said “OMG SO ITCHY!” And then I said “Uh, I mean yes” because telling the people you work for about your dry, itchy skin is kind of gross.

Moroccan argan oil is one of those ingredients popping up all over beauty blogs and commercials and known to be rich in nutrients and antioxidants. Suave took the same ingredients from more expensive brands and put them in their Professionals® line so women everywhere have access to premium products infused with authentic Moroccan argan oil. They sent me both the Body Lotion and the Dry Body Oil Spray and while I like them both the spray is my absolute new favorite product. It’s hard to dump oil out of a non-spray container onto your skin without making a huge mess and getting way too much, so the spray bottle is genius. It only takes a couple of squirts and the oil absorbs really quickly (I wouldn’t say INSTANTLY, but by the time I grab my clothes I can put them on without any stickiness). Once you rub it in it’s isn’t oily at all, just soft and moisturized (and not itchy!). My skin feels amazing all day and I smell like a million bucks.

    I’d like to try the body lotion.

  2. Amanda B says:

    Must go to store now. I’ll be gross with you and admit since moving back north the inside of my black yoga pants are flaked in dry skin every morning. It’s horrendous. The lotion I bought hasn’t done much and I hate the heavy lotion stick it’s leaving making putting on jeans impossible. Must search out the body oil ASAP.

  3. Erin says:

    That spray sounds awesome!

  4. E says:

    I would like to try all of them because SO ITCHY! I’ve been through at least 4 different brands trying to find something that helps/doesn’t ruin all of my clothes.

  7. Christa Singleton says:

    I NEED this! Regular lotion just doesn’t cut it for me and during the winter I scratch my shins so much they bleed!

  8. Jeania says:

    I want to try the Moroccan Infusion Dry Body Oil Spray. So convenient! I could spray it on my preschooler while she runs away from me, but I want to use it too. I bet it would be great to spray on the ends of my hair too to combat split ends…

  9. Shelley says:

    I would love to try the body lotion :)

  10. Barbra says:

    I would love the oil spray. I admit that yesterday, when removing my black socks, I noticed they were caked in white flakes. My socks had dandruff. Yes, I can be disgusting. I like spray oils, I use spray oil sunscreen just because I like the application better.

  12. Kayla says:

    Gah, oil spray is freaking smart. I’d be all over that, with my insanely dry arms (I think they get drier as I get older, it’s totally weird).

  13. Jennifer W says:

    I’m pregnant too…so the spray sounds wonderful on my ever expanding belly.

  14. Julie S. says:

    I am SO itchy too, I am going to look for this at the store tomorrow.

  15. Brigid Keely says:

    I’d love to try the spray. I had super bad hives for over two weeks and they’re gone now but they left dry scaley patches behind in addition to my eczema acting up.

    It’s so weird your steam heat is causing dry air problems. I’ve always loved steam and hot water heat radiators because they put out SO MUCH HEAT and don’t dry out the air as much as central air. I’m lobbying HARD for our central heat to be removed (along with all the huge ugly soffits all over the walls and ceiling holding heating ducts) and our radiators hooked up again. I’d gladly swap with you.

  16. Krystle Randow says:

    So the Maryland forecast is predicting another round of ice and snow. As I got out of the shower this morning, slathered up in lotion and then had dry skin itching on my legs only an hour later on my ride to work, I was just saying a silent prayer for spring to come. for relief of my scaly patches and for flip flops! I would Love to try the dry oil spray – sounds genius. much better than resorting to baby oil in the shower, which I have done, and then am waterproof and slippery.
