Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I received this product from Influenster for testing purpose, and I love the effect it had on my skin. I have very itchy, scaly, dry skin that I do not like and wished that I would find a product that would make me fell better about myself. Thankfully with the help of influenster and Curel, my prayers have been answered! after just one wash I really felt a difference, my skin felt soft and smooth, and more than felt moisturized!!! I really enjoyed this product and will definitely be buying the full size product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product!! I used the Curél instant soothing moisturizing spray that can in my Curél voxbox, and I honestly cannot say how incredible this product is. I had very itchy, and very large bug bites on my legs that became extremely dry due to itching. I applied it , and although it did not work "instantly" , when I woke up the morning after, it was basically gone!! I also put some on my very dry elbows and a couple hours later, I had elbows as smooth as a baby's bottom!! It was very cooling as well. Overall very pleased with the product besides the fact that it says "instant". I used this product for FREE, though my opinions were my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this wash! First off, I have to say that I have really dry skin. You can see actual skin flakes if you look at my legs if I don't use the right moisturizer. I have used the Itch defense body wash for the past week and that issue has cleared up so well! It doesnt leave my skin feeling oily and I don't slide around in the shower like some washes make me. I would suggest anyone who has dry skin to use this wash! It's awesome! I received this product for free to post my honest review on it and I am gla dI did because I would have never tried it otherwise!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was only able to try this once since I only received 1 sample. From that one shower I could tell that this was a gentle body wash. It was fragrant free and it felt good on my skin. It lathered up nicely but did not last that long so I had to keep adding more. The sample only was enough for my legs and not the rest of my body. It rinsed of easily. My legs felt comfortable and not overly dry. I am not sure if it helped with itching though because I was only able to use it one time and I would really need to use it longer to be able to tell if it really was helpful against itching or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got a chance to try this for free from CrowdTap and am so happy I did. I suffer from dry skin especially more so in the winter time. Cruel Itch Defense Body Wash worked great especially paired with the Itch Defense Lotion from Cruel. The body wash foamed up wonderfully on the shower sponge and a little bit went a long way. It left my skin completely itch free unlike how I usually feel from other body washes and it didn't leave any slippery stuff in the shower like in shower lotions do. This is a great body wash for anyone suffering from dry and itchy skin, note it is fragrance free. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Itch Defense Body Wash I received a complimentary sample size of the Curel Itch Defense body wash from Influenster for review purposes. All opinions in this review are my own. I really like this body wash. I use it with a bath pouf, and it lathers really well. It's very moisturizing but isn't greasy like many moisturizing body washes are. It rinses clean, and it has a fresh scent--nothing overpowering or perfumey though. I have very dry, itchy skin, especially on my hands, feet, and legs. I could really tell a difference after using it even once. I would definitely recommend this body wash to anyone with dry, itchy skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Itch Defense Body Wash Ever! I recently received this amazing Vox Box filled with Curel Itch defense Skin Care Products. I received the Body Wash product complimentary for testing purposes. Let me begin by telling you this product is amazing and really works against itchy dry skin. With the colder months approaching everyones skin tends to get dry and itchy. Some of us more than others. I have very sensitive skin and I am a nurse so I wash my hands continually. This product has brought relief to my skin in a fast and effective way. I love Curel and all the benefits my skin is getting from the continued use of the product. I would recommend this product to everyone. It is safe and a product everyone could really use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective body wash! I received this sample from complimentary of Influenster, but I must say, I will be buying the full size product! This was such a great addition for my shower routine. It didn't have much of a scent, which I usually don't like in a body wash, but it was just a faintly calming scent, if that makes sense. I didn't have a body puff to use with this, so I just used my hands to scrub it in and it had a really nice lather to it, and right after the shower, my skin already felt moisturized!! Coupled with the Soothing Moisturizing Spray, my dry skin didn't stand a chance! Really happy with this duo!!
