As we all know, winters in Colorado can be hard on our skin. That’s why it’s important to find the best product for you to keep your skin hydrated throughout the winter months (and the rest of the year). Fortunately, Bath and Body Works has just come out with a line of new products, called Cocoshea, that is formulated more for your skin type. Now, I may be a little biased since I am employed there, but these products are a must try!
This new collection has cocoa and Shea butter in all of the products. Cocoa butter is a great moisturize for the skin. Not only does it hydrate the skin, but it also heals is from the inside out. The natural product also tends to cause less irritation on people with sensitive skin since it is free of most additives, fragrances, colors and dyes. The Shea butter has healing properties in it that are great for the skin. The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils. Shea butter is also good in reducing inflammation and skin smoothing.
The Cocoshea collection comes in three different scents: cucumber, honey, and coconut. Each type has been carefully chosen for the nourishing properties in each ingredient.
Cucumber water helps to refresh and revitalize your skin. This line is great if you don’t have super dry skin. It is lighter and not as heavy on the skin. The cooling effect of the cucumber water makes it refreshing. This one would be great for the summer months!
The honey softens and smoothes the skin. Its antioxidants will repair skin and protect it against oxidative and environmental damage. The formula of this one is a little heavier, but it really does the job. It isn’t for super dry skin, so if you use it daily, your skin will be hydrated and it will feel great!
The coconut formula is the thickest and most hydrating of the three. If you have really dry skin, or are prone to dry skin, this one will be best for you. The coconut oil nourishes and conditions your skin giving you a deeper level of hydration.
Of course there are thousands of other moisturizers that you can go out and purchase. If you already have a favorite that works for you, stick with it. If you are struggling though to find the perfect product, this collection is really worth giving it a shot. Who knows, maybe you’ll find the new moisturizer for you!
