Skin Free After Shower Moisture Spritz

Skin Free After Shower Moisture Spritz ($11.99) is a spray oil made for all skin, but targeted for delicate, sensitive, and dry or damaged skin. It's helpful for those with allergies, eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis, and it's perfect for those who want to use natural oils to moisturize after bathing. According to Skin Free's Web site, their products are also recommended for pregnant women, babies, diabetics, renal patients, the elderly, and people who have undergone chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

Skin Free products have no fragrance, colorants, or petroleum products in them. The After Shower Moisture Spritz is simply olive oil, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E - no water, no preservatives, no suspect chemicals. That's why it's so good for men and women with skin that's dry or irritable.

You might ask, "Why would I pay $11.99 when I could mix these ingredients myself?" One reason is the convenient spray; it's easy to apply. A second reason is the formulation - somehow Skin Free is light and non-greasy after application. I don't like putting regular olive oil on my skin on a regular basis because it leaves a heavy film and damages my clothing. I also have to admit that my olive oil costs more than Skin Free, but that's another story!

Skin Free makes soap, a Niaouli Butter Stick, Super Moisture Body Balm, Whipped Tamanu Body Butter, and more - all for sensitive skin. They also make formulas for blemish-prone skin. All Skin Free products have been designed and formulated by Julie Hilton, a practicing pharmacist with over 30 years experience in compounding products and natural skin care. Julie started the company in 2000 when she and her husband moved to the Blue Ridge of Virginia.

The line is worth checking out at CVS, Walgreens, or Drugstore.com. Nice stuff!
