It’s that time of the year again. Yes not only is the Chicago weather frightful, but also pretty friggin cold! The increase in colder temps mean that I not only have to switch up my haircare beauty routine, but my skincare regimen must change as well. The preparation for winter skincare begins in the shower with a moisturizing cleanser formulated for dry skin. I was so excited when my friends over at Olay reached out to me to share a new product. The Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus is like your favorite moisturizing cream and body cleanser all in one.

Don’t you hate when you shell out your hard-earned cash for your favorite scented shower product, only to discover it doesn’t last very long because the product is more water than cleansing ingredients? You have to use half of the whole bottle to get a good lather. If you’ve had this unfortunate experience before, the Olay Moisture Ribbons is for you!


At the end of a long day there is nothing I enjoy more than to retreat into my bathroom (lock the door to keep the kiddos out) and take a nice hot shower. My husband always laughs because when the shower is really good my skin turns red from the hot water. Ladies this is not a good thing, water should be warm not scalding hot. All you need to set the mood for your shower retreat is great candles, some soft music and Olay Moisture Ribbons. I promise you’ll only need 1-2 pumps to work up a great lather. My personal favorite is the Shea & Lavender Oil. Shea butter works wonders for dry skin and lavender helps me to get a good night’s sleep.
