Repairing My Dry Skin with Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash with Marula Oil

The Dial brand provided me with a sample of Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash in exchange for a product review and giveaway. However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.

I deal with very dry skin year round, but my skin really takes a beating during the Winter months. With bathing suit weather just around the corner I’m working hard to restore my poor skin to something I don’t mind showing off in public, and I’ve added a new body wash to my dry skin care regimen that is really helping a lot.

 Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash With Marula Oil

New Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash with Marula Oil is a restoring body wash to help regain that beautiful soft skin we all want. The body wash claims to have a “luxurious, clean-rinsing lather that leaves skin feeling clean, soft and smooth.” The first time I showered with the Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash I was sold on that statement. The lather really is rich, and my skin really did feel soft and smooth after my shower.

I’ve been using the Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash for 2 weeks now, and my skin is much better than it was 2 weeks ago. My girls and I all suffer from eczema, so I’m always searching for a nice family body wash that provides soft healthy skin without irritating. The Miracle Oil Body Wash hasn’t irritated my sensitive skin at all, and I’ve noticed a huge reduction in the number of eczema patches I’m dealing with. The rest of my skin feels great, and my knees and elbows look healthy once again after fighting the ashy look all Winter long. The scent is very appealing, too. I absolutely hate body washes with an overpowering scent, but this one is nice. It’s a perfume like scent, but it isn’t overpowering at all. It’s definitely a good unisex scent. My husband has also been using this body wash, and the scent smells nice on him, too.

I’m definitely one happy new customer, and I want you to be, too. I have been provided with 3 coupons for a FREE bottle of Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash, and I want to share them with you!

Xtava Professional Auto Rotating Curling Iron Review

I received a free curling iron from Xtava in exchange for my honest review. Affiliate links may be present in product links.

As soon as my hair started growing as a baby I was destined for long locks. By the age of 3 my hair was super long, thick, and full of curls that looked like they came straight out of a curling iron. As I grew older the curls turned into waves, and no matter what I did I wasn’t happy with my thick wavy hair. Over the years I’ve tried different hair styles, even going short a couple times, but nothing makes me happier than having long curls.

My all time favorite curling iron lasted me decades. It was the kind that came with tons of different interchangeable wands including some straight out of the 80s like a crimper and triangle shaped iron! I lost many of the wands through the years, but the 1″ curling iron has been my best friend until it finally met it’s death 6 months ago.  I’ve been searching for a good replacement over the last few months. I’ve wasted money on many curling irons that have left me with a frizzy mess.

Then I received the opportunity to try out the Xtava Professional Auto Rotating Curling Iron, and once again I am happy.

The Xtava Auto Rotating Curling Iron features buttons to rotate the barrel left or right. My hair is so thick and long my arms always ache by the time I’m done curling my hair. The rotating barrel saves my arms by doing the work for me. After holding the hair in the curling iron for about 5 seconds you release it from the clip just like a standard curling iron. 

This curling iron also heats up to your desired temp between 210-430 degrees, and it heats super fast. I was using the curling iron in a couple minutes versus waiting up to 15 minutes like my other curling irons. My hair is thick but takes curl easily, so my desired temperature is 330-350.

My SIL’s straight hair doesn’t like to hold curl, so we bumped the temp to 410 degrees and achieved the look she wanted.

There is a learning curve to using the Xtava Professional Auto Rotating Curling Iron. The first couple of times I used it I found myself accidentally bumping the left and right buttons, and I admit I was a bit afraid of accidentally rolling the barrel up and burning my scalp. When I got comfortable with the iron I learned the best way to hold my hand to prevent accidentally bumping the buttons. 

Overall I’m very impressed with the Xtava, and it has quickly become my new favorite curling iron. You can find out more about this curling iron and other Xtava products via or purchase your own through Amazon.
