Back at the beginning of the year I challenged some of my readers to use Jergens and see if it lived up to its promise of immediately reliving dryness and hydrating skin. Jergens say "Made with 96% natural ingredients extra dry skin is visibly moisturised for immediate relief. This moisturiser softens and quenches skin with a blend of authentic desert botanicals and essential hydrators, restoring skin to a state of pure comfort and natural well being." It contains Jojoba, Avocado and Olive Oil so it's jam-packed full of ingredients that you know will quench your skin's thirst. This is what a couple of my readers had to say about the pump version of Ultra Hydrating lotion... did it stand up to the test?
"The Jergens moisturiser is a great and I have fallen in love with it. I have used it all over my arms and legs after taking a shower and it gets absorbed quickly and keeps my skin feeling soft all throughout the day. This also totally suited my hectic lifestyle and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family and repurchase it"
"This is my new fave moisturiser as it just makes my skin feel great without leaving a sticky feeling. I'd definitely buy this again, especially as it's so cheap."
I've been trying this since January too and I have to say I adore it. Something so cheap shouldn't be so good, but it really is! The moisturiser itself is light enough to apply easily and absorb well, but rich enough to really hydrate and moisturise the skin. The pump bottle makes it easy to get the right amount too, rather than squirting out enough to cover your whole body when you only meant to use it on one leg. This is perfect to slap on at night as you wake up with soft luscious skin, but also it's equally useful in the day because it sinks in so quickly... it's the only formula I can use before wearing tights! I've noticed a real difference in the appearance of my arms, particularly my blotchy upper bits and flaky elbows which seem to almost have gone completely. Jergens definitely passed the challenge.
