Winter Skin Rescue {Neutrogena Giveaway}

home alone movie harry gets burnt on door knobHave you ever volunteered to do the holiday family dishes?  You pull up your sleeves, start scraping off Uncle Jerry’s leftovers, put your hands in the hot soapy water, and then immediately need to run outside to stick your hands in a snow bank. {Harry on Home Alone after he gets burnt on the door knob style.} 

Dry, chapped skin is a constant battle in our house this time of year. So I was much relieved when I finally found a hand cream that actually helps heal dry skin, rather than just mask it for a few minutes.

It’s Neutrogena® Hand Cream and sells for under $5. Worth every pretty penny.

What do I like about it?

  • It’s fragrance free – because my boys struggle with patches of dry skin also and a girly scent would not fly.
  • It last longer than any other hand cream I’ve tried in the past.
  • It makes skin smooth and soft but not oily or greasy.
  • It works on dry skin anywhere – not just your hands.


And for the final giveaway of 2011, I have a collection of “Winter Skin Rescue Goodies” from Neutrogena which includes a bottle of the Hand Cream, Rainbath Shower and Bath Gel, Body Oil, Lip Moisturizer, and Moisture Wrap Body Lotion. Everything you need for the upcoming long months of winter!

To enter just leave a comment about how you keep your skin healthy during the long winter months.

This is a 48 hour giveaway so sign up now! Winner will be chosen randomly and notified via email.

    I use hand cream when I can but I never can find one that lasts. Glad to try this one. Headed out for some errands now so maybe I’ll pick it up!

    Very important to keep your skin hydrated. I have very dry skin in the winter. Have tried all kinds of products, but never neutrogena. Would love a sample.

    OOOH! I need this package! My hands get dry and crack badly every winter. Mainly I use lotion on my hands. I put it on the backs of my hands and then rub just the backs together. HA! I hate having it on the palms of my hands and then touching things. This definately looks like a good lotion for me to try! I may have to pick some up when I am shopping today. Have a nice Christmas:)

  14. Crystal says:

    Living in Western Oregon, one of the wettest places in the U.S., my skin never gets too dry. But when we were stationed in Idaho desert, I slathered my hands and face in Vaseline before going out for a run!

  15. Miranda says:

    I use lots of moisturizer and I exfoliate often. Love Neutrogena for my finicky skin!

  16. Carrie M says:

    Living in the Northern NV desert, dry skin is a year long battle made worse in the chilly wintertime. I use hand cream every night before going to bed but even that doesn’t always do the trick. It would be fun to try a new product!

    I use tons of lotion and chapstick!

    I have an in-shower moisturizer that I love!

  20. Rachel G says:

    It’s a battle – I try and remember to use lotion each night after my shower but then with two little ones I often get side tracked and forget and then end up with itchy dry skin – shucks. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway!

  21. Gayle says:

    I done even battle it and suffer with fingers that are split open, horrible feet and itchy legs. I need to put lotion throughout my house and get into better habits.

  22. Amy says:

    I survive the winter by using lotion every time I think about it!

  25. Sharon says:

    I always am using lotion after washing my hands and when I get out of the shower. Working as a nurse, I wash my hands all the time, have to use lots of lotion to keep them hydrated!

  26. Ladytink_534 says:

    I moisturize constantly. Especially before bed and after showers.

  27. Debbie in Grayson says:

    Lotion, lotion and more lotion. I use Vaseline on my hands before bed also. Having my hubby do the dishes help too. 🙂

  28. Sheila Shapley says:

    Winter dry skin is something I really battle. I try to keep lotion handy and use it as often as possible.

  29. Sara says:

    I’ve found that drinking a ton of water helps, as does making sure the humidity level in our house is appropriate. And lots of lotion, of course!! Great giveaway!

  30. Leslie says:

    I have struggled with sensitive skin my entire life and love anything fragrance free. Aveeno is my current product but I also like neutropenia. One thing I always remember to do is moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. That is the key for me.

  31. Tara says:

    I strong to keep my skin in good condition in the winter. Even with less showers and lots of lotion, I’m always so dry!

  32. Lisa says:

    It is too funny that you wrote about this lotion!!! I struggle with dry hands, especially after my daughter spent 4 1/2 weeks in the NICU last winter….my hands did not survive the winter weather AND the constant hand washing in the NICU. A year later, my hands are still a mess!!!!! I feel like I have tried every product on the market. Recently, I tried the very Neutrogena lotion you are highlighting and IT IS A DREAM COME TRUE. It works so well!!! I do have trouble finding it in stores where I live, so I will cross my fingers (my mosturized fingers) that I win!!!!!

  33. Lori says:

    Drink plenty of water. Good for so many things

  34. Mindy says:

    I use this hand cream also! I buy the 3-packs at Sam’s Club and keep one at home, one in my purse, and one in my pocket at work all winter.

  35. Audrey says:

    I use an exfoliator (?sp) in the shower everyday and hand cream several times a day! Merry Christmas!!

    I use lotion, but my hands continue to be dry and crack.

  38. Becky says:

    In the past I have always used aquafor on those awful dry patches on the hands and cheeks. A few months ago i started using Goat Milk Soap from The Goat Milk stuff people 🙂 We rarely use lotion anymore and does wonders to keep the skin from getting so dry! we cant avoid the chapped cheeks from the wind though and aquafor still comes in handy 🙂

  39. Kathy says:

    I try to use a cream skin wash. I also use body lotion right afteR a shower to seal in moisture. Dry winter weather is tough to prevent dry skin. I need all the help I can get.

  40. lilly says:

    use a drop of vitamin d along with your favorite hand cream

  41. My latest find is Nuetragena (I think that’s the brand) body sesame oil. LOVE it after a shower!

  42. Caralyn says:

    Lotion up all the time, but especially after showering!

  43. Melissa says:

    I drink extra water to stay hydrated from the inside. I try and slather on lotion as many times a day as I can.

  44. Melissa says:

    My skin gets extremely dry – and my heels, hands, and lips crack – thanks to genes from both of my parents. I find that doing “lotion baths” at night with socks and/or gloves is best for keeping dry skin at bay.

  45. Christie says:

    My dry nurse hands could sure use this!

  46. kelly grant says:

    I still haven’t figured out how to keep my skin healthy.
