Dial Lotion 7-Day Countdown to Noticeable Valentine’s Day Skin: Part 1

Like clockwork, it’s this time of year when the skin on my arms and legs is usually at its worst. Since I know I’m going to wear a lot of pants and sweaters during our short bursts of California winter, I often forget to even wear lotion, until I look down one day and see how dry my skin really is.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I want to get my skin in tip-top shape so I can wear a dress without showing off parched skin—and I’m taking a 7-day challenge with the new Dial 7-Day Moisturizing Lotions to see if they’ll deliver on their promises. This feature focuses on my initial first impressions with the lotions, and I’ll follow up next week with an update on final product performance.

Dial 7-Day Moisturizing Lotion is the first lotion of its kind to moisturize and keep skin soft for up to 7 days* (after an initial two weeks of use). Available in several varieties, I tried out two of them; the new Extra Dry Skin with Shea Butter formula, and Skin Therapy with Himalayan Pink Minerals. What amazes me most about both of them so far, is how fast they absorb, leaving non-greasy,  weightless moisture on my skin that’s clean to the touch. The exclusive formula found in Dial 7-Day Moisturizing Lotion is infused with 7 bionutrients that address the specific needs of your skin, leaving you feeling soft and clean.

The first one I tried is the 7-Day Moisturizing Skin Therapy Lotion. This variety contains Himalayan Pink Minerals, which are known to contain 84 key minerals that nurture stressed skin. I liked this formula the best so far, mainly due to its fresh fruity-floral fragrance.

The second I tried is the 7-Day Moisturizing Extra-Dry Lotion with Shea Butter. This contains essential fatty acids and natural anti-oxidant compounds to provide extreme moisturizing capabilities. This formula has a soft, powdery fragrance that’s nice and subtle.

I’ll check in next week to update if my skin is ready for that dress on Valentine’s Day, thanks to using Dial’s new 7-Day Moisturizing Lotion. In the meantime, stay up-to-date with the latest from the brand by liking them on Facebook at facebook.com/dial!
