Do you, like me, suffer from very dry skin? Sadly, I think I may have the driest skin known to mankind. If I don’t put lotion on my legs daily, my skin literally looks like fish scales. Add to that my ghostly pale Irish skin, and let me tell you, I’m a huge hit with the boys! When I opened up my box of testing goodies from wht and saw Jergens Naturals Total Nourishment Moisturizer and Natural Glow Moisturizer, you can imagine my excitement to try them. Moisture and color are always on my “need” list. And if they worked for me, both products are easy enough to pick up again at the drugstore.
But before you even read my review, you should watch this video. Why? Two reasons. First, it’s the hilarious and adorable Jane Krakowski of 30 Rock. Second, because Jergens will donate $1 to The Skin Cancer Foundation (from now until August 31, 2010) for every view to prove they’re serious about healthy skin and ray-free tanning.
I have very sensitive skin and was happy to see that the Jergens Naturals Total Nourishment Daily Moisturizer is made with 96% natural ingredients. Rich with Acai Berry and Mangosteen to strengthen your skins moisture and vitamin levels by 74%, leaving it healthier and more nourished. Plus, its cruelty free, paraben free, and dermatologist tested. This lotion did noticeably improve my skin and gave it a nice healthy look. It lasted throughout the day too. Only my hands needed additional applications. But, with hand washing, that is to be expected.
With my fair legs blinding everyone at work, I’m not sure who was more excited for me to try the Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer, me or my co-workers. Professional tanning isn’t in the budget right now, so I thought this would be the perfect solution. I would get the effects of a lotion loaded with antioxidants and vitamin E, plus the added bonus of a healthy tan. Unfortunately, this was not a love match with my skin. Smell wise, it was fine (which is great for a drugstore tanner) but it didn’t mix well with my eczema. I gave it to my mom to try and she had much better results. She actually looks like she does at the end of summer! I was so jealous that my skin had to be rebellious towards a good (and inexpensive) sunless tanner. But it looks like it’s a few more weeks of white legs for me…
we heartsters and testers, are you loving the Jergens glow?
