Winter is upon us and I don't know about you but this usually means bad times ahead for my skin. The cold weather and the so very needed but dreaded central heating play havoc with my skin, leaving it dry and scaly particularly on my legs. 

I don't moisturise as much as I should but I try to apply a generous amount before I go to bed to absorb through the night and have been trialing a new product over the last three weeks.

Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Replenishing Lotion (catchy!) with L-Bifidus* promises to leave skin feeling intensively hydrated for up to 7 days after the first application.

It's amazing, it works, it does what it says it will and I am going to buy some more as soon as this one runs out.


My legs are normally very dry by this time of year, they become so dry that they itch and my skin even cracks sometimes but so far this Winter none of these usual things have happened and I can only put it down to my new moisturiser as I've changed nothing else.

The range comes in Normal Skin, Sensitive Skin, Dry Skin and Extra Dry Skin. I went for the Dry Skin option with Mango Oil, it smells fresh and is absorbed quickly with no greasy residue. My legs actually feel silky, hydrated and nourished.

I whole heartedly endorse this lotion and if you suffer from dry, itchy winter legs then I urge you to give this a whirl.
