Neutrogena Intensive Moisture Wrap Body Treatment Review
It might be a little too early for a uber moisturizer to be part of your arsenal, but there is a time and place for it year round for those with sensitive skin. Such a moisturizer is the Neutrogena Intensive Moisture Wrap Body Treatment. This lotion is part of the Norwegian Formula product line. I find them to be VERY moisturizing, and it lives up to the claim that this product is richer than other lotions. Claims are that it is a fragrance free, concentrated healing treatment that contains a "unique glycerin-rich complex that instantly wraps skin" and allows it to heal from the inside for even the most uncomfortably dry skin.
I find this to be great year round if you swim at all. That's why summer is just as great of a time to use it for us sensitive skin folks. I find that the chlorinated pools easily dry out my skin to the point I get super itchy (no surprise) and my eczema patches like to peak out. Just by applying this after I shower (post pool), my skin is as if it never touched the drying chlorine. It's a little greasy feeling on normal (non-dry skin), so keep that in mind. However, despite the potentially greasy factor, it sinks into skin quickly and appears to absorb well.
Bottom Line: Perfect for the dry skin months, or those who impose dry skin on themselves (like swimmers). Those who are not prone to dry skin wouldn't like this as much.
