Rodan & Fields Active Hydration Body Replenish Is Just What Your Body Needs By The Time March Rolls Around

I don’t use body lotion. Controversial, you may say, but let me explain. The freezing New York winters have always given me the craziest itchy skin on my body. No matter what I did, no matter how much lotion I put on, the scaly, dry itching continued. To make matters worse, all my clothes and bedding were being destroyed by lotions.

So I stopped using them. Instead I got a $10 body brush on Amazon and started dry body brushing every morning before showering. Almost instantly, the itching went away. Not just that, the scaly skin disappeared too. However, there was still some dryness, but it didn’t bother me.

Then recently a tub of Rodan & Fields Active Hydration Body Replenish showed up with my usual Redefine regimen. I could immediately see it wasn’t a thick ‘body butter’ type thing (the stuff that destroys my sheets), it was more like a light lotion-meets-serum consistency. I liked it.

It’s a concentrated solution of Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin that they tell me draws in moisture from the atmosphere and locks it onto skin. You put it on, it absorbs right away, and your skin stays moisturized but never greasy.

I’ve been using it every few days and it has resulted in extremely smooth skin, the kind I thought I’d left behind in childhood. Now I use body lotion.
