If you’ve watched the news in the past few days, you know that winter has finally arrived in the Northeast — and with a vengeance! Particularly along the I-95 Washington, D.C. to Philadelphia corridor where I live, the frigid temperatures, blustery winds, and 16″-24” inches of snow are making me rethink my emotional attachment to the area!
For the past few days, I’ve spent hours outside shoveling snow, chopping ice, and cleaning off cars. All of that time spent out in the elements has really done damage to my skin. After just a few hours outside, it is raw and red, chapped and dry… lovely!
Luckily, I don’t have to hide indoors forever to avoid the effects of environmental damage on my skin. Proper skin care products can help tremendously. And, last week I received a sample of OZ Naturals Sea Infused Herbal Moisturizer for daily skincare — and just in time. It has really helped rejuvenate the look of my skin, even after all the time I have spent outside. The unique combination of ingredients acts as a natural, healing solvent to my dry skin.
The key to its effectiveness is a cocktail of proven ingredients like Vitamin C, organic sulfur, seaweed, and algae keratin. From my experience, OZ Moisturizer really works!
It is simple to use: just mmooth the moisturizer on a clean, dry face. I have been using it two times a day: once in the morning after a shower and again after I wash my face when I come in from shoveling.
It is smooth and creamy, not greasy. Although it is a citrus color, it is relatively odorless (I was expecting an orange, tangy scent). It goes on easily and I can feel my dry skin get softer immediately as I massage it in.
It does not, however, absorb completely for a few minutes. So, I dry my hair or make the bed before I attempt to put on makeup. If you try to put on makeup while it is still “sticky” you will have a mess (trust me, I am occasionally quite impatient).
I have had absolutely no adverse effects to this product (I sometimes have reactions like redness, but not this time). Maybe it’s because OZ Sea Infused Herbal Moisturizer does not contain alcohol, parabens or sulfates, and is also a vegan, cruelty-free product.
A 4 oz. tube is available on Amazon Prime for just $24.19 (plus free shipping for Amazon Prime members). This is a bargain compared to other, similar products I found at Sephora, like Murad Balancing Moisturizer ($40), Lancer Advanced C Radiance Cream ($82.00), or SK-II Ultimate Revival Cream ($385)!
Of course, you don’t have to simply take my word for it. Amazon reviews for this product number over 1,100 individual reviews and average 4.5 stars!
In fact, the OZ Naturals name has become synonymous with exceptional skin care products of all kinds and the line includes other must-haves like retinol serum, face peels, toners, cleansers and masks. These products have been widely praised as some of the best skincare options out there (regardless of the affordable price) according to InStyle, Woman’s Day, and Marie Claire.

As for me, I need to get back outside soon and shovel a pathway to the recycling bins. I don’t know about you, but summer can’t some soon enough for me!
