Can't remember where I got this sample from but as I have a small patch of dry skin on my chin and a very dry forehead I thought I would try it for a few days and see what happens. It is the Jergens Ultra Healing Body Moisturiser.
I started applying it to my forehead and chin about a week ago. I do it after I shower and before I go to bed. I currently don't use any other face moisturiser.
The scent is really nice, clean and fresh, not scented or fragranced at all - so it just smells creamy, which is great as I was applying it to my face and don't like anything to perfumed.
The consistence is quite wet, but not runny, just not thick like a butter or body lotion. This meant for me that a little went a long way as I was applying it to smaller targeted areas. I only had a 25ml sample and I still have loads left, feels like I have barley made a dent in it to be honest.
The question is did it work? Well actually where I applied it on my chin I found if I added to much it wouldn't get properly absorbed and would leave a bit of an oily residue that I could rub away when it had dried. But my skin is already feeling a lot softer, it hasn't made a lot of difference to the little dry skin problem I have there yet though.
On my forehead on the other-hand it absorbed really well, don't know if this is to do with the skin itself or the levee of dryness maybe, but it seemed to soak into my skin pretty fast and leave an instantly more moisturised feel. After a week my forehead is feeling much better and is far less dry and flaky than it had been, I still get a little issue just above my eyebrows but I am hoping with continued use that maybe that will be sorted out too.
If you like the sound of it and want to try it for yourself it is available at Boots, Superdrug or Amazon and 200ml is usually around £3-£4. I think it is well worth that price, and a little goes a long way so this would last ages if you only used on targeted areas rather than an all over moisturiser.
Has anyone else tried any of the Jergens products? What are your opinions? Any of the other items I should try?
This is not a sponsored post, I had this sample with a number of others I currently have. All views are my own and I aim to give honest opinions of all products I try.
