Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Works for Me!

IMG 4972

I’ve found my drugstore lotion.  I’ve loved Aveeno and many others, but I’m committing myself to only one brand now:  Jergens Ultra Healing.  My skin never fares well in winter.  Until now.  The big test?  My arms.  Come winter, they practically feel like sandpaper.  Even in mild North Carolina.  I ran out and bought a bottle after reading  Real Simple magazine’s January 2013 issue.

I’ve been testing it out for two weeks and my arms are the softest they’ve ever been.  I’m talking EVER.  It’s a keeper. I tend to apply this general principle in life:  “If it works, don’t fix it.”

Real Simple always tests several brands, but Jergens won “longest lasting”.   Just $7 at the drugstore for the 26.5 oz. bottle.  25% more lotion than the normal 21 oz. bottle for Jergens Daily Moisture.

Notice this Jergens pictured is different than the bottle I bought.  I went for the whole Ultra Healing with extra dry skin moisturizer.  It has Vitamins C, E and B5.  I have no idea what B5 does, but anytime I see a bunch of vitamins listed, it makes me think I’m doing something good for this aging body.

Another change and not an easy one for me since I prefer hot showers:  taking a quick (3-5 minutes), lukewarm shower.  It’s not as difficult as I thought.  I start out with hotter water, but I adjust the nozzle after a minute.  Using hot water dries out your skin.

Look for “DID it WORK”  posts each Tuesday and Thursday on my blog.  I’m enjoying this.  Hope you are, too!
