Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer

Jergens Wet Skin moisturizer

I received the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer in an Influenster box about 4 or 5 months ago…. and I completely forgot about it until I was cleaning this past weekend and stumbled upon it.  There are three scents and I have the Nourishing Monoi Oil; this is what Jergins has to say….

“Step out of the shower and into a floral paradise with the nourishing, floral scent of monoi oil. JERGENS® Wet Skin Moisturizer contains a breakthrough new formula that blends with water when your skin is most receptive to moisture (right after bathing, when your pores are open). Simply rub in and pat dry. Enjoy the soft and smooth benefits of the monoi oil formula, wrap yourself in the scent of the Tahitian gardenia flower and get on with your day. ” 

First off the skin that is not on my face is fairly normal (face is super super oily).  I rarely get dry skin minus my elbows only in the dead of winter (which in Florida is like 5 days 🙂 )  Because my skin is normal and doesn’t feel dry and tight I hardly ever use a moisturizer, body lotion or butter on my skin.  A lot of lotions and body butters are too thick and leave my skin feeling greasy and take a long time to soak in.

The first time I used this I wasn’t overly wowed.  And it is strange to use a lotion (albeit a very thin lotion) on your wet body.  It was ok but nothing that I felt was amazing.    I have used it four times now and I like it more every time! Don’t know what changed but my skin feels very soft after using and I like that I  don’t feel greasy.  If you have very dry skin this probably won’t do much for you.  But if you are like me and have normal to moderately dry skin I think you may like this.  This retails from $5.99–$7.99 so if you would like to give this a go you may want to shop around and make sure you are getting the best price.

No Shaving Cream? Give These A Try

We’ve all been there.  Deciding what to wear so you don’t have to shave your legs.  Don’t lie ladies, we all do it.  For me I don’t shave because I’m lazy.  But maybe you have other reasons.  A friend of mine asked me recently what I used to shave my legs as she couldn’t seem to find a shaving cream that didn’t dry her legs out.  I have a bottle of shaving cream in my shower but honestly I don’t reach for it that often when once in a blue moon I do decided to shave the forest that is my legs.  Here are some of the things I use instead.

 

Conditioner 

1338-332935-purifyreplenish_remoisturize_conditioner_300x400

I always shampoo twice and condition once.  So I always run out of shampoo before conditioner.  I use whats left over to shave my legs.  It is really moisturizing and definitely cost effective.  My mom has not used a shaving cream in years, she exclusively uses conditioner.   TRESemme with Pro-Vitamin B5 & Aloe 

Body Butter

If you are like me you go through body wash like there is not tomorrow but have bottles upon bottles of lotions and body butters.  Put them to good use and use them to shave those legs!  This is a great way to get through a bottle of lotion that you aren’t particularly fond of.  You are literally pouring it down the drain, but you have put it to use so you can feel good about it.  Tree Hut Olive and Shea Body Butter, Lavender and Chamomile

 

Bath Oil

Avon has some fantastic bath oils and they often run sales.  This is also super moisturizing and it leaves your legs feeling extremely soft.  Avon’s oils dry pretty quickly so this is a great option for summer if you don’t want to have that lotion-y feeling that using body butters/lotions to shave can give you.

Body Scrub

31-a5QUPCAL

This is a great choice if you have super dry legs as you will not only be moisturizing but taking care of removing dead skin.  Make sure to use a scrub that has a good consistency.  I like the scrub that I use to shave with to be a little more liquid-y then what I use for my face.  100% Pure Body Scrub Coconut
