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 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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from great product I received this product as a sample tester from influenster. Let me start of with saying I love this body wash. I have really itchy irritated skin on my legs and upper arms. I've been using this product for 4 days now and have gotten much relief from my dry itchy skin. I can feel it working as soon as I start to wash. It soothes and keeps working All day long which is great! I use it along with the curel itch defense lotion. Both together work wonders and I noblonget have the itchy dry irritation through the day. Thank you influenster and curel will be purchasing more!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After receiving the Curel Itch Defense Body Wash free sample from Crowdtap, I was a bit skeptical. I was hopeful about the lotion, but body wash?? Helping my itchy skin?? Well, rest assured, it does work! And my skin feels so silky smooth after using it. This product will be a definite staple in my household, ESPECIALLY in the winter months when my whole family suffers the most with dry, itchy skin. I never thought we would find a relief for our problem. The body wash smells nice, cleanses well, leaves you feeling silky smooth AND relaxes that itchy skin. FINALLY!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I tried the Curel Itch Defense Body Wash and like it. It lathers nicely, rinses of easily and without leaving oily residue, isn't harsh or drying, and leaves my skin feeling clean, soft, and smooth. I applied Curel Itch Defense Lotion after the Body Wash and I was surprised by how it did give me noticeable relief of my Winter dry, itchy skin - even after just my first use. I intend to continue using it and I recommend it to anyone interested in a good body wash that provides relief of dry, itchy skin. I’m a member of the Crowdtap Curel rewards program, and Curel sent me sample of its Curel Itch Defense Body Wash to review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
