The Best Winter Product I Always Forget About:
Kiss My Face's Hand Alert

I have seriously dry skin. The Colorado climate only makes it worse and the winter weather makes it painful. My hands and feet suffer the most. Sometimes I think a mani-pedi is the answer but my dry skin is also sensitive. With sensitive skin the products used in salons can make the skin feel worse. Then I finally remember Kiss My Face's Hand Alert. From this point forward I am vowing to always have a tube and not forget about it again.

I love this product because it is an intensive moisturizer with the yummy scent of Rosemary Mint. When I have it on people actually ask what perfume I am wearing, it's that delectable. However, that is not my favorite feature. My favorite part is the 2% Alpha Hydroxy Acid. I use the lotion on both my hands and feet and the AHA works to exfoliate while moisturizing. You're not just trying to rehydrate dead skin cells, rather getting them out of the way and moisturizing the new cells.

The moisturizer also contains a sunscreen, SPF 8. Hands are one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging so a little sunscreen everyday is helpful. The only downside is that it tends to leave a little white residue that you can't feel but can see. Apply sparingly until you figure out what amount is right for you. As with all Kiss My Face products the lotion is made from organic plants and herbs, not tested on animals or made with animal ingredients. It retails for about $8.99 (though I usually find it closer to $7). You can buy it online or at local stores like Whole Foods and Sunflower Market.

So, I went to Sprouts this weekend...and remembered this post. This stuff is AMAZING! I'm always looking for the best hand lotion product out there, and this one smells great and keeps my hand soft (I got the grapefruit + bergamot one because I love grapefruit!) Thanks for the recommendation. :)
