Thanks to the utter failure of my current body lotion to actually moisturise my dehydrated skin, I am now a raisin. When one finds oneself becoming a raisin emergency measures must be taken. I popped on my coat and rolled my raisin behind straight down to my local Boots to find something cheap and effective to salve my poor, dry skin.
Still reeling from the recent discovery that evil parabens could be secretly worsening my little KP problem, I had to hunt for something more natural. Forced, therefore, to dismiss 98 per cent of the products on offer, I settled on Jergens Naturals Extra Softening, which at a discounted price of £2.44, didn’t hurt my bank balance either.
This moisturiser relies on shea butter to help maintain moisture levels and provide an instant softening effect. The smell is very, very subtly fruity, which I’m happy about, and the lotion sinks straight in. My skin is left smooth and silky, but without greasiness. After a few applications of this stuff, I’ll be a juicy grape again in no time!
