Everyone from Mom to me to the dog has a miserable time during winter. Especially mom, who regularly has extremely dry, calloused hands and has a hard time keeping up.
So I was excited to be sent to a local Walmart to try out Dial™’s new line of Nutriskin™ lotions in a store demo, and to pick up a bottle and try it out on the Dry Skin Poster Mom.
For details on my in-store shopping and demo experience, check out my Google+ album here.
Mom has had dry skin for several years. Two of her roughest areas are her feet and hands. Mom makes sure to pamper herself, but is now keeping lotion in easy-to-see locations so she can remember to apply it.
I hate it that I have to let go of her hands because they are so rough and dry.
She has the hands of someone who should be doing manual labor, not spending most of her days checking up on the news, petting the dog and chatting with her friends on Facebook.
I know there will be a time when I’m going to miss my mom’s hugs and hands and voice, so I want to make these moments of affection last as long as they can. I also want her to be as comfortable as possible.
So we were both happy that I chose her to be the guinea pig. Besides, we get to show off her gorgeous manicure by Tammi at Bella Mia Salon in Rogers.
And so we begin the test. I applied the Dial™ Nutriskin™ lotion to her hand and massaged it in.
I then let it set in while Mom finished her breakfast. I could immediately see a difference, mostly in the disappearance of rough edges and the soft-but-not-oily feel of her skin.
When I looked at the front of her hands, I noticed the dry callouses had disappeared.
But what about later in the day? I met my mom in the backyard and took her hand in mine. While the callouses were still present, her skin was still soft. It felt like a hand I wanted to hold.
I am not saying Nutriskin™ is a miracle-worker; only time will tell.
But I do think that this lotion is a very good product. It doesn’t have a strong smell, it isn’t greasy, and it makes me want to hold my mom’s hand. That’s good enough for me.
